Finca Agroecológica el Paraíso

Finca Agroecológica el Paraíso is a farm to table restaurant where we stopped for lunch. If you visit Cuba I recommend a stop at this farm. Just be sure to make reservations. The farm was amazing and plentiful with fresh vegetables, fruits and beautiful flowers. The farm also housed animals that I wished I could have set free because their fate was doomed and their time was limited. One staple that is served at almost every Cuban meal is some form of squash. I was served an excellent squash and vegetable stew that I couldn’t get enough of. The meal here was all you could eat and the food kept coming. My husband, brother and sister in-law said the meats were excellent. Black beans, rice, veggies, potatoes, salads and every form of squash was served. The food elsewhere in Cuba that I had sampled had rarely been great and unless there was a vegetarian option, I stuck to bread which was sadly always stale.  Cuba doesn’t have the infrastructure, agriculture or economy to support anything that us spoiled Americans have become used to consuming. At least today I was enjoying the tasty and fresh food that was placed before me and for the first time during my visit to Cuba I felt full.
