Belfast's Revoluciòn de Cuba restaurant opens next week - what's on the menu
Revoluciòn de Cuba is opening up its first cocktail bar and restaurant in Belfast next week.
The new nightspot will be located in the former Cafe Vaudeville building on Arthur Street close to Cornmarket and Victoria Square.
Ahead of the Latin rum bar and cantina's opening, we're taking a sneak peek at the menu to see what's on offer.
Described as "little dishes with huge flavour" Revoluciòn de Cuba's tapas selection is inspired by the classics of Havana.
The sharing dishes on offer include beef fillet skewers with chilli jam glaze; grilled lamb chops with herby chimichurri; and lime and chilli King prawns with a sweet mango salsa.
Also available are Iberico ham croquetas, albondigas (meatballs) and gambas pil pil (chilli prawns).
Revoluciòn de Cuba's taco option are perfect for lunch time visits, allowing those on the go to create their own custom bites to take away with a choice of pulled paprika chicken, shredded pork, and mushroom, bean and spinach as a vegetarian option.
The lunch menu also includes salads and sandwiches, which are filled with the likes of chimichurri steak; halloumi and black beans; and fajita-style chicken with homemade Cuban BBQ sauce.
Burgers and burritos
Revolución de Cuba’s spiced burgers come layered with manchengo, spicy rum sauce and orange-infused slow-cooked shredded pork - with a Carribean inspired jerk chicken burger also on offer.
Burritos are filled with marinated chicken and cooling guacamole; shredded pork with pineapple salsa; or seven-hour slow-cooked beef with chilli jam.
Best of the rest
The Latin inspired large plates include fruity chicken enchilada, Cuban paella and Aberdeen Angus sirloin steak with honey roasted vegetables.
No one does cocktails quite like the Cubans so mojitos come finished with either classic mint or more experimental blends of apricot and pineapple, and lychee.
Daiquiris come in an array of flavour combinations whilst iconic classics including Martinis and Iced Teas are given that Revolución touch with spice infusions.
There is also a selection of Latin American beers, as well as eight brews on draught.
