Cubano Lito – Cubano Lito is an quintessential point to enjoy true Cuban experience in Dubai. The alluring sassy music and unusual food made my visit to Cubano Lito really delightful. It was my first time i tried Cuban food and i was very exhilarated before my visit & i loved it.
Ambiance is very beautiful and inviting with english colour palettes gives warmth and contemporary look. The music is very jazzy which forces you to shake your legs. Live music is the highlight of the vibes it gives, very energetic and positive. The service is prompt and staff is active.
We started with CL’s signature drink CUBA LIBRE an interesting mix of rum, cola and lime juice, very refreshing. To accompany drink CRISPY PLANTAIN CHIPS with lemib cilantro vinaigrette, it was fried fresh. YUCA FRITA yuca fries served with chefs special sauce, very flavourful & yummy.
Moving ahead we tried PLANTAIN CRACKERS TOPPED WITH SHRIMP & PINEAPPLE freshly fried mini canapé shaped plantain topped with shrimp and pineapple, very nice and crisp. PASTRY POCKETS FILLED WITH GUAVA & HALLOUMI CHEESE is must have, tasty.
The dessert FLAN DE CARAMELO traditional cuban flan flavoured with rum, caramel and coconut, with velvety melt in mouth texture. EL CARMELO baked chocolate ice cream topped with meringue, packed with right amount of sweetness is must have dessert, very delicious.
Final Verdict – Wow, All in all, a beautiful and cozy time spent at Cubano Lito. Friendly staff and unusual food trail made my visit worth. Food presentation and taste is good. The ambiance is the show stopper as the feel and look is very Cuban.
