Monserrate # 351 between Obispo y Obrapia, La Habana Vieja, Cuba
The early success of La Zaragozano, founded in 1830 and named after the Spanish city of Zaragoza, can be explained by the proximity of the church of Santo Angel Custodio as well as the exit gate in the Havana City Wall across the street. Visitors to the church, businessmen, and those who operated the horse carriages in which they traveled all needed a place to refresh. The Spanish influence also shines through in the menu with dishes like Astorian Fabada (a plate prepared with white beans); Garbanzos fritos con Chorizo (chickpeas with pork sausages) and Paella. The seafood section offers an aphrodisiacal soup, which is made of sea fruits and vegetables as well as some extremely heavy dishes like the Fondue de Mariscos (shrimp, lobster, cheese and white wine). On Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays nights around 8.30 it’s Flamingo time at La Zaragozano and might be the best time to check out this historic place.
