This Is What It's Like (for Conan) to Eat in Cuba

Rum is my friend

I haven't done that much traveling in my short school- and work-filled life yet, especially lately, so I haven't gotten to do the international food and night life thing in other countries just yet. First on my list would probably Vietnam and then South America, but until then, I guess I'll just have to live vicariously through Conan O'Brien.

For those of you who don't know, Conan spent an entire episode this week based out of Cuba. You can check out a clip of him eating at a paladar, a Cuban family-owned restaurant, after the jump. The entire episode is fun though. Conan visits a rum museum, learns how to dance and play salsa, but the most striking thing is how much (understandably) less of a celebrity he is over there.

Ugh, that looks like such a tasty meal. Soon..
