Cuban Takeover at The Paddington
$10 cocktails and a Cuban feast soundtracked by vinyl.
By way of helping you transition into summer, all things Cuban are taking over The Paddington for three Thursday night shindigs starting September 28. Called ¿Qué bolá? (Cuban slang for "what's up?"), the evenings promise a Cuban feast, $10 Havana Club cocktails, a photographic exhibition and a chance to play dominoes Cuban-style, all soundtracked by Cuban vinyl.
Danielle Alvarez, Head Chef at Fred's, is taking care of the menu. Snacks-wise, take your pick of empanadas de picadillo, with beef, olives and raisins; alitas de pollo (chicken wings); traditional sandwiches; and lime-habanero ceviche with plantain chips.
For a heartier feed, sit down to a main, to be served in the dining room. The list includes lechon asado (roasted suckling pig with garlic and lime sauce), camarones enchilados (shrimp creole), congri (beans, rice and bacon) and yucca frita con cebolla (fried yucca with onions).
