An Evening With Alma De Cuba

Any event with food and Sam is a winner in my book so when Sam kindly invited me down to an evening of great food at Alma De Cuba and Liverpool bloggers, it was an instant hit! I was super excited when I got the email to be able to give Alma De Cuba a try as it's somewhere I've never tried but always want to go, especially for the cocktails!

Alma De Cuba is an incredible Cuban restaurant and bar situated towards the top of Seal street, right by the bombed out church. Keeping the structure of St Peters Catholic Church, the interior is incredible, so stunning and beautifully decorated. It was even visited by Mother Theresa when it was still St Peters Church! Whilst it has a stunning upstairs dining area, it also hosts events practically every day including gospel brunch, open mic night and afternoon tea.

On the evening, we were invited in with glasses of champagne and given a chance to look around, get photos and chat before we were brought upstairs to our own table with front row seats for the open mic night. As we were welcomed to the table, the lovely Sam and Stefan had arranged little goody bags and hand-made signs for us.

Any of you lovely people who have been reading for a while know that I have the palate of a five-year-old when it comes to food and I'm not exactly the type of person that goes for fancy food and there are quite a few foods that I won't eat so I was a little bit nervous about going for Cuban food. As I was driving I ended up going for a non-alcoholic cocktail which was absolutely delicious and WAY too easy drink, but apparently, the cocktails are exactly the same!

Thankfully we were kindly sent the menu in advance, a godsend when you are a fussy eater like me! I was able to take the time to decide what I would actually eat without getting the anxiety of having a waiter standing over me waiting for my order. I decided to go for the Hanging Chicken (which is kind of like a hanging chicken kebab), it was beautifully marinated chicken pieces with peppers and onions. All served with either rice or yam fries (or as we know them, sweet potato fries). Then it was time for dessert because why would anyone  in their right minds choose a starter and a main over a main and a dessert?!! I decided to try out their Dulce De Leche & Columbian Cocoa Tart, this stuff was seriously delicious. I found it was the perfect finish to a meal with the summer heat, a great alternative to the after dinner coffee. 

The menu, decor, and atmosphere makes for a truly amazing restaurant. It's the perfect place to go for dinner and dancing with the girls or even afternoon tea. I couldn't recommend it more, I'll definitely be popping back to have cocktails (with alcohol this time) with the girls very soon!

Speak to you next time!
