Hoy te llevo a probar un pedacito de CUBA en Asheville. En esta ocasión me acompaña mi compadre STU HELM, uno de los mas reconocidos críticos culinarios en Asheville.

Hoy te llevo a probar un pedacito de CUBA en Asheville. En esta ocasión me acompaña mi compadre STU HELM, uno de los mas reconocidos críticos culinarios en Asheville.

Que onda compadres, comadres! Y a todos aquellos que apoyan esta pagina con el fin de tener mas informacion disponible en formato bilingüe en Asheville. Sí amigos, a ustedes les envio un gran abrazo de agradecimiento por su apoyo.

Bien, para empezar, Hemingway’s Cuba ( en castellano, algo así como, La Cuba de Hemingway) este lugar, es en mi opinion el restaurante con la mejor terraza y vista panoramica de las montañas. Ubicado en pleno centro de Asheville.

#DescubreAsheville

En esta ocasion les hablare brevemente de mi experiencia con Stu Helm, quien es en mi opinion el critico culinario mas CHINGON en Asheville! ¿porque lo digo? dale un vistazo a su pagina y te daras cuenta de que el tipo sabe un par de cosas, sobre como y donde darle filo al diente en Asheville de la mejor manera, ademas de que lo conocen tanto que cuando me sente a cenar con el, pude notar el nerviosismo de nuestro mesero quien en realidad no tenia nada de que preocuparse. Stu es un tipo muy buena onda y bastante relax el wey.

Stu Helm, a punto de entrare al ceviche Cubano, con platanitos fritos a un lado.  DELICIOSO, fresco y un savorcito que me recordo mucho al ceviche mexicano, 100 % recomendable para una tarde de verano caluroso, cuando se antoja algo no muy pesado y palyero! Es practicamente un viaje a la playa en cada mordida.

EMPANADAS DE POLLO (TAMBIEN HAY DE RES)

#DescubreAsheville #CubanFood

Estas empanadas son las MEJORES que he comido en Asheville. (Sí, he comido muchas otras en la ciudad, pero estas son las que mas me han gustado) Aquí tambien que estuvimos de acuerdo Stu y yo, la hojaldra (masa de empanadas) PERFECTA y la sazon del pollo ni se diga.

Cuando en Cuba, o en un restaurante cubano, MOJITOS!

#DescubreAsheville

Mojito acompañado de la mejor vista de la ciudad, te lo recominedo si andas buscando quedar bien! Hemingway’s Cuba es en este momento el restaurante latino con el mejor ambiente y vista de la ciudad ( es como si estuviese en Miami, pero sin playa, y rodeado de montañas)

CEVICHE CUBANO CON PLATANITOS

#DescubreAsheville

El ceviche estuvo EPICO!

BISTEC A LA PALOMILLA

#DescubreAsheville

Como puedes ver, este corte es bastatnte latino, es decir, a diferencia de los cortes americanos que por lo regular son gruesos, este no. Eso sí, lleno de sabor y como podras darte cuenta bastante caribeño,con sus platanitos y  frijolitos estilo MOROS CON CRISTIANOS. 

PAELLA, A LA VALENCIANA

#DescubreAsheville

La Paella es un platillo español, pero con millones de fans en Latino America y la version de Hemingway’s Cuba no decepciona, al contrario, hecha con conejo y pollo  EXQUISITA.

Sun, paella, mojitos, empanadas. Hanging out with my friend Stu Helm (aka The Food Fan) at Hemingway’s Cuba. This restaurant offers outstanding Cuban cuisine and some of the most spectacular views of the mountains.

What’s up guys and gals? To everyone who’s supporting this page, we appreciate you. We’re trying to bring you the best bilingual content to represent Asheville. Your support in that effort means a lot, so sending you a big hug and a high five.

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.

#DescubreAsheville

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.

#DescubreAsheville

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.

#DescubreAsheville

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.

#DescubreAsheville #CubanFood

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.

#DescubreAsheville

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.

#DescubreAsheville

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.
