By Thalía Ruiz Desdín
The franchise of the Bodeguita del Medio in the so-called Cuban City of Parks (Holguín) and belonging to the Palmares Extrahotel Group, operates under the more hygienic and safe Tourism certification in the new stage of normality established in Cuba because of the COVID-19.
Located near the central Calixto García Park and the Plaza de la Marqueta in the eastern capital, this gastronomic facility stands out - like its original headquarters in the capital - for its offerings of traditional Cuban dishes, prepared from beans, fried pork rinds and cracklings, among other characteristic Cuban food products.
Among the distinctive proposals of this Holguin franchise is the incorporation of cassava as an accompaniment to some culinary proposals, one of the oldest foods registered in the country, Assen Toledo Argüelles, director of the Palmares branch in the territory, told the ACN.
La Bodeguita del Medio usually receives international clients, generally from Canada, Russia, Italy and Germany, who visit the city as part of their tourist tours, although these have been restricted in recent times due to the COVID-19.
In view of these circumstances, the offers of this attractive property have been reoriented to adapt them to the Cuban market, said Inés María Ambrosio Marrero, commercial specialist of this extrahotel group.
Several personalities, both from Cuba and abroad, have visited this local establishment, among them the well-known ballet dancer Vladimir Malakov, a great fan of the Mojitos that its specialists prepare in the area of the bar of the distinguished center of gastronomic services of excellence in the oriental town.
In the current epidemiological context, this B of the M rigorously complies with each of the prevention protocols established by public health because of the new coronavirus, to guarantee a pleasant stay for customers and, above all, to take care of their health, said Jorge Luis Expósito Portelles, who is also in charge of the restaurant's services.
La Bodeguita del Medio in Holguin, a franchise of the existing one in Havana, was founded on May 3, 2017 within the framework of the International Tourism Fair with headquarters in these eastern area, constituting the fourth of its kind inaugurated in Cuba and at the same time, the 11th worldwide.
