Cuban Food Lovers, attention please.

  • o

Seeking opinions on Havana Mania in Manhattan Beach. Been going there for about 4 years & in my humble palatable opinion, one of the best cuban food places in Southern Cal. Even better than Versallies. Is there anyone out there that would agree with me. If you haven't been there, like Cuban Food, live in the South Bay or wouldn't mind the drive. I would strongly recommend it. If you've eaten there & agree/disagree, I'd love to hear from you.

  1. I had a b'day party there once (not my choice) as I love cuban food. It was just ok. The first time I was there I loved it! So I assume they don't do well w/large groups as a lot of folks said food was so-so during the b'day night.

    I for one love the place in Hollywood, La Floridita (sp?)....the best mojitos and the best chicken dishes.

    1. Havana Mania is pretty tasty, convenient and a Must for Cuban food lovers. Haven't been there in a while, but Little Havana in Manhattan Beach had some killer lechon asado :-).

      1. I went once and thought it was pretty decent. Good mojitos as I recall. It's certainly better than the stuff they serve at Versailles here. I hear El Colmao is the best in LA but I haven't been.

        Oh, I am from Miami, have Cuban relatives and have spent my life eating Cuban food.
        Head to Miami if you want the good stuff.
