According to most restaurant critics, the perfect Cuban meal is served on a plate, which rests on a table with legs. Enjoy Cuban fare the way it was meant to be prepared with today's Groupon. For $7, you get $15 worth of sandwiches, savories, salads, and soups at Havana Grill in Cary.
Dining next to a mural depicting a sunny, sand-castled day at the shore and a patio shrouded by white-and-blue umbrellas, diners will feel as though they've transported direct to the Cuban coast, but without the mayhem-related side effects of teleportation. An order of crackable plantain chips, dunked in garlic sauce ($2.95), appeases impatient appetites. Havana Grill serves a full menu of soups, beans, salads, and saucy entrees. The roasted pork sandwich ($6.96), grilled to order and stacked heavy with onions and garlic on Cuban bread, will appeal to meat eaters. For brain food, the grilled mahi-mahi filet soaked in a lemon-based blend is a smart pick ($13.95). Desserts include rice pudding ($2.95), coconut-flavored flan ($2.95), and a homemade three-milk cake topped with whipped cream and a cherry ($3.45).
Latin flavor leaks out of the kitchen for Havana Grill's weekly events. The colorful café plays host to a series of enchanting evenings, including "Dance Under the Stars" taking place on the heated outdoor patio Saturdays, and salsa lessons by Alpha Salsa on the second and fourth Saturdays of every month. Diners can also work off excessive calories at a Zumba Party on the last Friday of every month.
