From Habana Vieja, you can take a shortcut through this dilapidated alley to get to the Malecon.
We sat on the balcony with a wonderful view of the sea.
Mojitos--3 CUCs. If you prefer a taste of the Soviet Union, you can also choose from 12 different Vodkas.
Marinated Eggplant--3 CUCs. This was served cold and delicious.
Pielmeni Siberiano--4.90 CUCs. Russian style raviolis filled with ground beef and pork and garnished with sour cream and herbs. Another delicious dish. The dill worked well with the sour cream.
Golubets--5.10 CUCs. Cabbage roll stuffed with meat, rice and spices, cooked in a fresh tomato sauce and sour cream.
Borsch--4.40 CUCs. This was not what I expected. It was beet soup with chunky vegetables. It had good flavor.
Beef Stroganoff--13.50 CUCs. I liked this dish. The beef was tender and the sauce was creamy.
Our waitress wore a t-shirt that said "Back to the USSR...in Havana."
