The Three-Ingredient Lunch


When I was in Cuba last week with FIrst Hand Aid, I ordered this meal for lunch at the Hotel Ambos Mundos, where Ernest Hemingway used to hang out. (He stayed in Room 511, for those inquiring minds who want to know.)

My lunch? Arroz con Huevos y Platanos Fritos, or Rice with Fried Eggs and Plantains.

Simple. Unique. Delicious. And local.

  1. Was the rice in timbales under the egg? Or something like that? And was the rice seasoned? Inquiring minds want to know (once they’ve left room 511)…

    • Lois, it appears the rice may have been cooked in timbales, although it seemed pretty much like your basic white rice so it could have simply been scooped from a steamer. I think it was seasoned well with salt and maybe garlic or onion (both heavily used in Cuba). Thanks for inquiring!
