So remember when I told you Hubs and I had a date night last weekend? You know, Loretta Lynn? That thing. Well, we went to dinner beforehand to a restaurant neither of us had been to (hence the purpose of 52 in 52).
Cuban Revolution | 318 Blackwell St # 100 Durham, NC 27701 | (919) 687-4300
First impressions? Loved the music, atmosphere, and feel of the place. I had a feeling I would like this place. Also, the prices were VERY reasonable considering what you were getting and the quality of the food. Also, our waitress was FABULOUS I wish I could remember her name cause I would give her a shout-out.
So, we got an appetizer of empanadas… but they were gone before I could take a picture of them. Honestly, they were okay. Kinda boring. Not the best empanadas I’ve ever had… they needed a sauce of some kind.
John got the Garlic Shrimp which also comes with plantains and Cuban bread… OH and roasted pineapple! SO JEALOUS. I wanted roasted pineapple. He loved it but said it wasn’t very filling…
I got the Havana Chicken with jalapenos. It also came with Cuban bread and plantains, but I felt jipped cause I didn’t get roasted pineapple. Oh wells. My dinner was DELISH. So flavorful and SO filling! Like, there was a TON of food. SO MUCH FOOD. It was so yummy. Honestly, it tasted a lot like some of the meals I make at home (and you know I’m a good cook, so of course it was good).
Overall Stillman Rating: 3.5 out of 5 Stillman Stars.
