Raw chicken breast and old clothes with "odd smell" in a famous Cuban state restaurant
Speaking to CiberCuba, the comedian added that they first ordered roast chicken and after a long wait they told him there was not any.
Then he opted to ask for old clothes and, after a similar wait, he was told "that the old clothes 'smelled funny'", so he decided to order the breast that was served under the conditions he has shown: raw.
With prices in freely convertible currency -as average of up to 7 CUC-, the bar-restaurant "Cabaña" serves Creole cuisine and international dishes. The grilled chicken breast is priced at 4.70 CUC, according to the Alamesa application.
In recent years, despite the effort that the Cuban government claims to be putting in improving the state gastronomic offer and rescuing some of the most iconic restaurants in the capital, such as El Cochinito, the truth is that in general the state gastronomic services continue without being at the height of the private management of gastronomy on the island.
Shortages, very low standards of product quality, dirt in some establishments and mistreatment of customers are some of the characteristics that distinguish state companies linked to food services.
At a time when self-employed businesses have become strong competitors for restaurants and state gastronomic offerings, the effort announced by the Cuban government continues to fail to see real improvements in practice.
"The state restaurants as always, taking a step forward to alienate customers," is the conclusion of Marcos García with which many other clients of the state gastronomy in Cuba will probably be identified.
