    Little Havana

    by Shaft28 Written May 27, 2003

    Favorite thing: What I thought was going to be the highlight of the trip, turned out to not even be in the ranking.
    My wife and I headed to South Beach for our honeymoon, decided to spend a morning in Little Havana.
    Honestly, beside the great food at Versailles,
    there was nothing to do.
    I'm sure during a festival it is fantastic, but the way some of the tips are and travel books that have made this into something it is not.
    Besides festival time, this is just an old neighborhood in which mostly people of Cuban heritage live.
    If you get kicks out of a Cunab dry cleaner, a Cuban video store and a Cuban Taco Bell...well this is the spot.
    So if you plan a trip based on this part of town, be sure something noteworthy is happening. Otherwise, it is kind of a bad part of town with more than its share of vagrants.

    Fondest memory: On the plus side, do plan a lunch at one of their great restraunts. Very good food, but you can find just as good around town.
    (Frankly we have a place in Portland that serves a better Cuban Sandwich and Mojito...)
    Sorry, I wish I wasn't disappointed either.
