Better than ever: Habana on South Congress.

February 26th, 2007

A couple of years ago, the Habana restaurant on South Congress Avenue in Austin had a bad fire that shut it down for a while. My family used to go there regularly when we lived in The ’04, but we live far enough away now that we don’t usually make it back.

This weekend we enjoyed Austin’s fabulous weather on Habana’s front veranda. I had “vieja ropa” and cafe con leche; my wife had Habana’s textbook Cubano sandwich; my kids enjoyed empanadas con tres quesos, with Goya mango nectar to drink. A good time was had by all, and I was pleased to see that the restaurant is bigger and better than ever post-reconstruction.

Give it a try: Habana on South Congress.
