Can you tell me about lunch?
We usually go to Versailles.* The restaurant is a famous place and does not accept reservations, but you will arrive and be escorted to the private dining room like a VIP, where you can sit and relax because we've taken care of everything. Lunch is served at 12:30pm. The menu includes:

First Course: a chicken empanada. Empanadas are lightly fried "Hot Pockets" stuffed with shredded chicken. Plus, a plate of warm plantain chips with garlic dipping sauce.

Second Course: a big fruit plate, served family-style. The plate has watermelon, pineapple, grapes, honeydew, crenshaw melon, and strawberry yogurt dipping sauce.

Third Course: a Cuban sandwich, made with roasted pork, ham, Swiss cheese, pickles, mustard, served on Cuban bread. Vegetarians may substitute a grilled cheese sandwich.

Fourth Course: a cheese and guava pastry, with a shot or two of sweet Cuban coffee.

Beer, sangria, soda, and juice, are available for purchase. Ice water is free.

Then, we hop in the bus and drive to Domino Park in Little Havana.

Fifth Course: a scoop of ice cream at Azucar Ice Cream Shop. To try to flavors, say "half-and-half"

Before leaving, feel free to walk in the art gallery and souvenir shops.
