Why are there Cuban Chinese restaurants in Miami, Florida?

Cuban Chinese restaurants, readily found in cities with large Cuban American populations, blend the two cuisines.

They exist because a minority of Cubans are people of Chinese descent.

More than 100,000 Chinese contract workers came to Cuba between 1840 and 1870, at a time when African slave labor was being phased out.

  1. I actually never realized that there is a reason behind the existence of Cuban Chinese restaurants in Miami. All I know is that business-minded individuals these days tend to mix things up to make a great offering. Great stuff! Thank you for sharing the information.
