There is a restaurant in Gulfport that has been around since I was a kid.
Restaurants in Gulfport tend to open and close. So I was really glad to see it was still open as I passed it by the day I drove into Gulfport to visit this May. My brother and I always loved going to Habana Cafe because they have the yummiest fried plantains and being a kid from Virginia.. that just wasn't something we saw very often!

We went there for lunch after going to the Dali Museum the next day and I had probably one of the most delicious meals I've ever eaten.
No lie, it was so good. And I think the reason it was, is because of its simplicity!
I literally cannot describe how perfectly delicious this meal was. Shrimp in a light lemon butter sauce with rice, fried plantains, cuban bread (yes I actually ate some gluten) and savory soupy black beans. I savored every bite. The gluten factor of the bread was totally worth it even though had I skipped it, everything else was gluten free.
Yum! Now I need to set out ot try to recreate this goodness at home!
