I love finding new places to eat around Socal. It is amazing I don't weight a ton. Anyhoo, the other day, a pal and I decided to catch up at Habana, a Cuban restaurant located at Costa Mesa. Friendship is a two way street, it take maintenance to keep it strong and healthy too. I wanted to try this place for the longest time after hearing many good reviews. The atmosphere is very cozy inside. It was quite dark with lots of candles, definitely a good date place. For dinner, pal and I shared an appetizer of steam clams Cuban style. I will definitely try to make something similar at home. I adore clams.
We both ordered the special of the night. Pal ordered grilled Mahi Mahi with Mac and Cheese. It was very light and absolutely delicious.
I ordered New York grilled steak with Mac and Cheese. Considering I am not a meat person at all, I really enjoyed my dish. Prices are quite reasonable. Most appetizer dishes are less than $10 and main entree dishes around $20 to $25. This is a place I will visit again. But, most of all, I am really glad I get to catch up with a good friend. After all, it may be fun to possess lots of material things but a savvy lifestyle is about balance and having love ones around. Do you make an effort to catch up with friends from time to time?
