The Cuban

Squaremeal Review of The Cuban ?

Images of Che Guevara preside over this buzzing bar, slap bang in the middle of Camden’s Stables market – though there’s not much revolutionary about the crowd of tourists and just-legal-age drinkers. They get their kicks from a huge, sub-£7 cocktail list that boasts a medley of mojitos as well as Che’s Revolution (rum, maple syrup and pineapple juice) and The Burning Red (spiced rum, chilli, Chambord and vanilla). Cuba is not exactly famed for its cuisine, but plates of chilli-beef quesadillas, and baked salmon with mango salsa and potato salad, provide good, hearty sustenance. Alfresco tables are a boon in summer.

Been to the Cuban in Canterbury and wanted to try this while in Camden. Still had great atmosphere! I ate in the upstairs restaurant and had drinks downstairs before and after so maybe the food/service was different downstairs for dinner. Once again it took about 15 minutes to get our table even though we hadn’t booked beforehand but we enjoyed drinks at the bar in the meantime. Location in the market was great as well. Fun place, I recommend spending a day in the Camden market and a night of food...

    OH SO LONDON :: Catching up at The Cuban, Camden | Oh So London

    Cuban food gets a pretty bad press if you ask me. It’s often described as bland, starchy and unexciting. So I was intrigued to see how The Cuban bar and restaurant fared with their island cuisine.

    I was tying in my trip with a long over-due catch up with some friends who work in Camden. So a hop over to the cobbles of Stables Market was very handy for them – and an excuse for me to travel further north of the river than the West End, which I don’t do often enough...
