Would you like to get acquainted with the traditional Cuban-Creole cuisine and with Cuban Salsa on the same evening? Now you can with Comida con Salsa in Club Akhnaton, in the heart of Amsterdam. First you will enjoy a traditional Creole meal, then you will receive an introductory salsa workshop of 1.5 hours. You’ll dance the calories off right away. 😉 😉

Luis “Mocito” Salazar Tavera, owner of Mocitos Dance School, is not only a salsa teacher but also a professional chef. And Cuban! As a little boy he learned from his grandmother and aunt-grandmother the recipes for typical dishes such as “ropa vieja”, “pollo frito” and “camarones enchilados”. And it is these dishes that you will be served when you book an evening of Comida con Salsa.

The meal will be served from 6.30 pm to 7.30 pm, at 7.30 pm the tables and chairs are moved to the side and it is time for the introductory workshop Cuban Salsa. In 1.5 hours you will learn the basics of this dance, which is equivalent to four regular dance lessons. Spicy, and fun – and you immediately swing off all the calories.

Comida con Salsa takes place in July and August in the completely renovated Club Akhnaton, where exotic dinner and cocktail shows take place during the summer and where Mocitos Dance School gives salsa lessons on Mondays and Tuesdays.
