Paladar Doña Eutemia
Callejon del Chorro
Lunch at Doña Eutimia in HavanaDoña Eutimia is located on a small side street off of Plaza de la Catedral. Reservations are a must at this bustling restaurant. The food here is Cuban. Must tries include the croquetas de Leticia, fish croquettes breaded and fried; the tostones relienos, hollowed-out plantain pieces with different fillings; the ropa vieja, a typical Cuban shredded beef dish (here made with lamb) that I actually ordered everywhere because it’s one of my favourites; and finally, the picadillo a la habanera, ground beef cooked with olives and raisins. Side dishes include white rice, black beans, fried plantains and a fresh salad. The lemonade was one of the best I’ve ever had!
