Two weeks ago I got invited to Revolucion de Cuba to try out their new menu. It is situated in the centre of Leeds, on the corner of Lower Briggate and the famous Call Lane, its a rum-lovers heaven. Serving up Latin-inspired dishes and tapas, Cuban coffee and classic cocktails. It is home to two floors of dancing, drinking and dining or simply laid back lounging whilst listening to live music.
Our visit was on a Sunday, which meant tapas dishes were 2-4-1, whereas on Monday to Friday they are 3 for £14, both amazing deals for the portions you get! We went for a selection of tapas dishes to share, this way we got to try even more of what they have to offer. It states on the menu that when 2 people are sharing, they recommend 3 tapas as a starter or 6 as a main.
To start us off, we order a couple of cocktails (would of been rude not to). I went for the Tiki Punch (£9.25). This was a blend of Spice Hunter and Appleton Estate Signature Blend rums, with amaretto, pineapple, cranberry, lime and passion fruit. A spicy tiki twist. It was refreshing and went down a little too well, you could barely taste the alcohol – which is great but dangerous!
My friend got the Mangon! Which is Cuban slang for ‘good looking.’ This may have only been small, but it packed a punch! Consisting of Bacardi Cuatro rum with mango and lime, it’s one fine and fruity Daiquiri.
Overall we loved our trip to Revolucion de Cuba, the atmosphere was amazing, live music, friendly staff, tasty cocktails and delicious food! It would make the perfect spot of day drinks, a date night or for a family meal!
