After an afternoon at the Tiki Barge, my friends and I were looking to grab a quick bite to eat. We wanted something casual, where we could eat outside, enjoy a few drinks and ideally we wanted Mexican food. Well, I still hate Blue Agave, and Banditos turns into a bar so we decided to try Little Havana which is only a block away.
As a group, we decided to share an order of the Bison Tacos. The tacos were seasoned with tavo meat and topped with grilled peppers, onions and avocado in a flour tortilla. The bison tacos were great, but really nothing special.
We also shared an order of the Queso Dip with tortilla chips. This was a white cheddar queso and I would have preferred if there was a little more flavor to it.
For dinner, one of my friends ordered the Carne Tacos. The tacos were served with steak, chopped onions, cilantro and with a side of rice. My friend loved these tacos and thought they were packed with flavor. I tried a bite of these and liked them considerably more than the bison tacos.
Two of my other friends shared the Quesadilla Chicharron de Pollo. Two quesadillas were stuffed with chicken, cheese, pineapple and onions. My friends loved this dish and thought the pineapple added another level of sweetness to the dish.
I ordered the Bocadilla de Pollo which was a delicious chicken sandwich. The chicken was marinated with garlic mojo sauce with was wonderful and packed a bunch of flavor, the sandwich was topped with spinach, avocado, pico de gallo and garlic aioli. I really loved this sandwich and thought it was full of flavor.
My sandwich came with a side of Sweet Potato Fries which were really good, but nothing particularly special.
