I found this beautiful mural on the side of the Thai Elephant café in downtown Phoenix and wondered why a Thai restaurant would have a mural of Cuba on their building. I asked a friend who is “in the know” and discovered that the premises once housed a Cuban restaurant. Then I thought about the Asia de Cuba restaurants in London, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and Scottsdale and thought maybe this isn’t such an odd combination after all. I’ve eaten at the San Francisco location and loved everything I tried. Maybe I’ll check out the new Scottsdale location soon.
