Havana Club La Bodeguita Del Medio – Newest Cuban bar in the South



There’s a new bar in the South called Havana Club La Bodeguita Del Medio. It’s a Cuban inspired restaurant/bar which features Cuban dishes and drinks that you will surely enjoy.  They’re relatively new and only 5 months old to date but with what they offer, it seemed like they’ve been around for some time.

This is definitely a nice place to have great food and drinks. What’s cool about this place is that they invite bands to perform such as UDD, IV of Spades and more. Make sure to like their Facebook page to know the latest schedule.

Here’s what I can recommend you try on your visit:

Nachos Grande (Php295) – that’s flavorful ground beef, creamy cheese sauce, onion, tomato and jalapeno served with pico de gallo sauce.  The tortilla chips was soft and crispy, too.  This appetizer is just perfect.

Mariscos Pizz– pizza with loads of seafood such as mussel, clams and squid. The crust was chewy and crispy at the same time.  I love the generous amount of cheese that was put into this.

Gambas Al Ajillo (Php305) – the garlic shrimp cooked in olive oil, with crushed red pepper and green olives. I love anything shrimp so I am going to be biased in stating that this would be my favorite dish here.

Mussels Sisig (Php420) – deep fried mussels, sauteed in butter, onion, garlic and mayo with salted egg.  The mussels were crunchy and buttery.  This will be perfect with beer.

Parillada de Pollo (Php395) – grilled half boneless chicken topped with onion rings and served with sweet corn, fried platanos and pico de gallo with aioli sauce.  The chicken smelled so good and it was tender and full of flavor.

Grilled Tuna Belly with Mango Salsa – perfectly grilled tuna belly topped with fresh mangoes, tomatoes and onions.  The combination of Tuna and Mango was so good.  It has that refreshing flavor altogether.

Che Guevarra Burger (Php270) – 100% all beef sirloin patty, with lettuce, tomatoes, onions and cheese on a toasted buttered bun served with fries and honey mustard.  The patty was indeed thick and it was also juicy.  I liked that it wasn’t that salty as I get to appreciate the patty and I enjoyed eating more of it.

Majito Cubano (Php240) – A traditional Cuban Poco Grande. Nojito is a cocktail that consists of five ingredients: white rum, sugar (traditionally sugar cane juice), lime juice, soda water and mint. I would have this anytime of the day.  It has the right amount of alcohol but enough to have that kick in this small glass.

Blended Coco Mojito (Php220) – A creamy tropical cocktail that combines the appeal of a pina colada with refreshing mojito flavors. Mint, Lime and coconut rum.  This would be my best bet.  I love all the flavors here.  Don’t worry as the coconut flavor was not that overpowering.

Overall experience was superb.  I highly recommend that you visit specially if there’s your favorite band lined up. I assure you that the place was amazing, staff were attentive and food was great.
