I visited Havana in September with my Cuban-American boyfriend to meet some of his family who had remained in the country. While I was there, I eagerly sought out some of the culinary highlights of the city.

She hadn’t yet decided to embark on what was to be a harrowing road of training and finishing her recently completed swim from Cuba to Key West.

First Baja stop? Tijuana’s sprawling Mercado Hidalgo to record the market report.
Second stop? Tacos Fitos for beef birria, baja-style, the local breakfast of champions.
