With an $8 tapas menu you can get anything from fish tacos, roasted corn to the untraditional yet kinda traditional Cuban “spring roll." Pair that with an “Calle Ocho Fashioned," trust us. Besides the cheap yet awesome bar food, the bartenders there are extremely friendly, feel free to chat it up with them while waiting for your bar snacks.
