Havana Café

Restaurant veterans BJ and Gilbert Hernandez distill Spanish and Latin flavors into traditional Cuban cuisine at both Havana Café locations, where chef BJ’s menu has been winning awards since 1989. BJ's tapas have caught the attention of critics at the Arizona Republic and Fodor's the latter describing the ham-and-chicken croquettes and shrimp pancakes as "marvelous." For the house specialty paella a la Havana, BJ stews five types of seafood–– including lobster, mussels, and scallops––with chicken breast, chorizo, pork, and saffron, and the classic emperadado Cubano sees the chef carefully layering ham, mortadella, roast pork, and pickles, and then pressing the savory stack into a thin, toasty sandwich or a fine wine. Those dining in-house can sample sangria that was voted No. 1 by the Phoenix New Times, and take-out completas meals take the pain out of meal planning with family-sized portions of not-too-spicy entrees accompanied by generous helpings of rice and beans, cabbage salad, sweet plantains, cuban bread, and a dessert pudding.
