If Che Guevara was still alive and happened to visit Seoul, there’s a strong chance that he’d be nibbling on a chicken wing at Hongdae’s Cuba Wang.
Aside from mojitos and cigars, Cuban food and drink culture has hardly made a dent into Korea. But here are two places that have showed up on the radar, appearing to be Cuban bogies that are in Korean airspace.
Tucked away in the backstreets of Sinchon, Little Cuba opened in April 2013 and has been garnering positive buzz ever since. Most notably for their ring-of-fire-inducing Habanero Burger and authentic Cuban Sandwich.
Cuba Wang is an incredibly funky bar, as far as decor is concerned. In Hongdae since 2009, this place has great beer selections from the region, while managing to squeeze some Cuban cuisine into the bar menu.
