Been here Friday Night with friends, it was my first time to go Cuban bar so I was excited which special cocktail I'm going to order, then I met the barman named Asanka who suggested me this drink. Nachos with beef is perfect! Will surely recommend to my friends who's planning to have vacation in Dubai!
