TV series: 50 Kitchens, one City - Cuba

A cross media film production about Berlin based restaurants

TV and web series with the Cuban restaurant La Pequena Habana

Finding a restaurant in Berlin that serves good Cuban cuisine was not easy. Through a tip from a chef we know we discovered La Pequeña Habana in Schoeneberg. From the outside rather inconspicuous, the guests can expect an excellent cuisine inside and lots of passion for the gastronomy. Iris Garofalo loves being a host, her husband Eric performs in the kitchen.

For the TV series 50 Kitchens, one city we cooked together the Cuban national dish, Ropa Vieja, a dish made of beef, which is prepared in a special way. But also the avocado salad and the daily fresh fish dishes are absolute delicious. For Iris and Eric with the La pequeña habana a long-desired wish became reality, they told us during the shooting. "Food plays a huge role in Cuba. We are family people. We all like to eat together and we enjoy food. We all come together at the table and tell each other how the day was, talk about everything. No matter what, we enjoy the food.” During our filming, many Cubans ate and dined at the restaurant. A good sign, as we find.
