For starters, Hemingway’s Cuba – o La Cuba de Hemingway – is gorgeous. In my humble opinion, it has the best rooftop patio and panoramic views of the mountains in town. And it’s located right in the heart of downtown.
We’re going to talk briefly about our visit with Stu Helm – who’s the most CHINGON/BADASS food critic. What do I mean? Well, if you’ve visited his site, you’ll quickly see he’s a real insider on the best places in town to chow down. On top of that, one time I joined him at a restaurant and noticed how nervous our waiter was to be serving Asheville’s food chingon. But, in reality, he need not worry – Stu is a very chill guy.
Stu, just about to dive into the ceviche Cubano with fried plantains. DELICIOSO, fresh, and with a flavor that reminds me of Mexican ceviche. I would one hundred percent recommend on a hot afternoon, when you want to eat something light and refreshing. It’s like a trip to the beach for your mouth.
These empanadas are the best that I’ve had in Asheville. Yes, I’ve eaten many others in the city, but these were by far my favorite. Stu and I agree, and the empanada pastry was just flaky perfection. The seasoning on the chicken was also DIVINO.
Mojito on the rocks – and served with the best views of the city. If you’re looking for a place to lounge, you can do it well here. Hemingway’s Cuba is the Latin restaurant with the best ambiance and views. It almost feels like Miami – but surrounded by mountains, instead of the beach.
As you can see, this cut (of steak?) is quite Latino. What I mean by that is the American-style cut is much thicker. But this is so flavorful – with Caribbean touches like plantains and beans – called Moros con cristianos.
Paella is a traditional dish from Spain that has an international following. The version here at Hemingway’s Cuba does not disappoint. It’s full of succulent rabbit and chicken. Paella a la Valenciana.
