What you need to know:

  • You would think that because Cuba is basically in the Caribbean with a close proximity to South/Latin America, the food would be bursting with flavour and spice, right?
  • I thought so too...until I was writing on Twitter about how I'm going to Havana, and how excited I am, and more than one person told me to carry my own spices. I brushed it away.

I finally went to one of my dream destinations, Cuba, after two years of planning. Hurray! I'd been dying to go – I mean, quite honestly, who isn't? It's Cuba! Romanticised by The Fast and the Furious and every other movie that has a classic car in it.
