  • The main pull at the Havana Cafe are the 500 yen Corona beers. If you're a fan of this Mexican brand, this is one of the cheapest bars I've seen to indulge in this so-easy-to-drink beer. You could come for the food too, but that you can get elsewhere too-come for the beers!

    As expected, I ordered a Corona and started browsing the menu. Though the name would suggest that this is a Cuban restaurant, the menu is primarily Tex-Mex with a few New Orleans dishes and random fried stuff throw in. I finally settled on an order of nachos (800 yen) to go with my Corona. The nachos came with a generous helping of guacamole and sour cream on top, melted cheese in between, and bean chilli at the bottom. I would have rather had the sour cream and guacamole on separate dishes on the side, but on the whole these were some pretty tasty nachos.

    I continued my meal and my second Corona with a chicken burrito (1000 yen). I doubt they make their own tortillas, but the effects of the beer were starting to pile up and I didn't mind as much. The burrito was filled with beans, rice and a spiced tomato sauce, and came with helpings of salsa, guacamole and sour cream. The burrito was not bad, but forgettable.

    The decor at the Havana Cafe resembles a beach shack, and Bob Marley seems to be a popular music choice here. The chairs are a bit too tall but this is a cool place to kick back after a hard day's work. Come for the Corona, get food if you're hungry, order another Corona and let the night wear on (and this place is open until 5am!).

  • The Havana Cafe feels just like a small piece of Cuba in the middle of Tokyo. Although the food is not authentic Cuban, but more a general mix of Mexican food, the atmosphere is hot and heavy and does have the feel of a street side cafe in the Caribbean. There are two floors to the cafe, the first floor, street level, is the bar. There are a few standing tables and several small tables with chairs. If you want the restaurant, you need to follow the hostess down the stairs into a very romantic setting that even has a shaded couch area. The restaurant is definitely a great place to take a date because some of the chairs are large 2 person love seats with a table in front of them. To my left there was one that had about 15 pillows on it and a large cover over the top. The food was very good and I particularly like the fajitas. The nachos and tacos were also quite good. The great part is that the Havana Cafe is not exceptionally expensive (4,000-5,000 yen for 2) and they have a wide selection of summer and Mexican cocktails.
