Owner Rey Diaz coaxed his uncle Rene Diaz, a chef with 45 years experience, out of retirement to populate the menu of Havana South Restaurant and Bar with true Cuban cuisine. Kick off an evening of munching, conversing, and competing to see who can whistle “Guantanamera” with a stuffed mouth with a hearty appetizer, such as papas rellenas, pan-toasted, potato-breaded beef nuggets, or empanadas, which envelop beef or chicken in fried-pastry crust. Afterward, a conga line of entrees parades out of the kitchen, flaunting such dishes as the pollo a la milanesa, breaded chicken doused in criollo sauce beneath a canopy of melted cheese and ham. Chunks of lean pork marinated in garlic-mojo sauce comprise the masitas de puerco, whereas pieces of fried bone-in chicken act as the union-sanctioned building blocks of the chicharon de pollo con hueso—a house favorite. Meanwhile, drink alchemists use guava, mango, and passion fruit to brew up refreshing batches of mojitos, successfully conjuring island flavors without having to serve chasers of molten lava.
A life-size painting of palm trees and domino players on the beach may fool diners into thinking that they’re dining on the coast, whereas crimson-hued walls compliment heated salsa nights that are speckled throughout out the eatery’s event schedule.
