Cabana Nuevo Latino - Orlando / Florida Guide
Florida Guide > Other Florida
Just a couple of hours drive from Orlando, West Palm Beach is a wonderful place to visit with many attractions including some wonderful beaches and only a couple of hours drive makes it an easily accessible place to visit.
It was while we were there recently and just strolling down the famous Clematis street that we came across this wonderful gem of a place called Cabana Nuevo Latino, a wonderful restaurant located on an equally wonderful Clematis street.
This Latin American restaurant and bar serving food from Cuba to Aruba originated in the big city of New York where they are still based and this being the first one opened outside of New York.
The food is prepared by a Mexican chef Who Moved here for the opening and he also opened the original one in Forest Hills Nine years ago, with Midtown and Downtown locations following.
It is perfectly situated across from Centennial Square and on a Saturday night the whole world seams to pass by, when the streets are adorned with horse drawn carriages, trams and rickshaws.
Inside Cabana can seat 60 on the first floor and a further 40 upstairs and with it’s sophisticated décor and Latino ambience you could easily be enticed away to another world as the hours pass by unnoticed.
The menu is vast and it is difficult to choose from all of the tempting dishes on offer but whether it’s a light lunch, full blown meal, salad or sandwich there is something for everyone. The Jamaican jerk chicken marinated in a Caribbean spices and hot peppers basted with jerk barbecue sauce and grilled over an oak fire is just so tasty as are the sandwiches such as the breast of chicken breaded and fried, topped with plum tomatoes, avacados, black beans with a garlic-scotch bonnet mayo served on a Cuban roll, along with thinly sliced fried plantain as a side. There is a large selection of tasty salads along with plenty of fish, as you would expect such as shrimp, conch, octopus, calamares, scallops, clams and mussels simmered with saffron and garlic in a caldera of Valencia rice, simply delicious.
There is a great selection of beers to choose from including several from the Caribbean.
Open daily from 11.30 until 11pm with lunch time specials being offered up until 3.00pm.
The service is friendly and efficient and this is a place certainly not to be missed if ever you find yourself in the area.
