Already renowned for serving the very best Mojitos and hand-crafted rum drinks in all of Hong Kong, Havana now proudly presents a brand new menu of “Contemporary Caribbean Tapas” – over thirty delicious small dishes specially designed to enable you to savour ALL the varied flavours of the Caribbean islands.

The diverse geography, culture and history of the Caribbean islands, makes it almost impossible to define “Caribbean” style. Traditional Caribbean cuisine results from a mélange of cultural influences. The islands have been fought over and owned by various European powers - mainly the British, French, and Spanish. All of these cultures, as well as their respective culinary traditions, have played a role in forming the multi-national cuisine of the Caribbean.

 

Originally, two Native American tribes occupied the islands, and then Columbus arrived in 1492, and introduced sugarcane to the natives. European colonists, including the Portuguese, Dutch, British and French, came later to the islands with their culinary trademarks. During the African slave trade foods from West Africa were introduced. Following the abolishment of the slave trade, laborers from India and China came to work in the plantations, adding two very different culinary influxes to the already long list.

 

Although it is difficult to generalize about Caribbean cuisine, it remains exquisite. Whether dining on conch in the Caymans or jerk chicken in Jamaica, you will soon realize that Caribbean cuisine is food of the gods. Some of our favourites include;

 

Coconut Shrimp in a Basket with Tamarind Chutney

Deep Fried Conch Fritters with Curried Mayonnaise

Pork and Mango Picadillo

Mojito Lamb Kebabs

Guava Glazed Short Ribs

Lobster Salad on Endive Spears

Beef Croquettes with Spicy Sofrito Sauce

Seared Scallops with Fresh Mango on a Sugar Cane Skewer

Jerk Chicken Brochettes with Red and Green Peppers

Tuna Tartar with Cilantro and Hot Passion Fruit Ice
