Cuban Tapas in Angel

Angel is one of my absolute favourite neighbourhoods, and so today I took advantage of the sun and the day off University to walk around Angel with a friend. We found an incredibly cute Cuban restaurant/bar called Cuba Libre, that had a special offer on Tapas for lunch. The interiors were a bit too much, and with a bit too many pictures of Che Guevaras, but once we tasted the food, it made the overly decorated room perfectly fine.  The list of Tapas makes it impossible to choose, along with the menu which has a varied and long list of Cuban dishes. I ended  up getting 4 plates of Tapas for 7 pounds (perfect discovery for a student!), and was stuffed by the end of the meal. Really Latin environment and music, great food and reasonable prices, will definitely go back for another Tapas lunch.

If you have some time after lunch, walk down Essex Road , and you will be able to see  one of Bansky's works. It's not in the best of shape, but it was still cool to be able to see one.
