Redolent of the spices and flavors of Cuba, the Caribbean, and Puerto Rico and featuring the fresh ingredients favored in California, the fare at San Francisco's famed Cha Cha Cha is as festive as its name suggests. The restaurant's fun and funky cookbook includes 60 terrific recipes for "New World tapas"–small dishes inspired by big flavors–to bring a little Cha Cha Cha to your own table.
Located in the colorful Haight-Ashbury district, Cha Cha Cha is even more lively than its environs. The place is filled with laughter, fabulous food, and a loud Latin beat, and adorned with altars devoted to the saint-gods of Santeria. Cook, Eat, Cha Cha Cha is as eclectic and intriguing as the restaurant, intertwining the stories of Santeria with varied and exciting recipes, accompanied by full-color photographs of the altars and of the delectable dishes themselves.
Cha Cha Cha represents a unique coming together of flavors, ingredients, beliefs, and cultures. Owner Philip Bellber has greeted thousands at his popular restaurant and fed them well. Now he shows you how to regale your loved ones in the same spirit. Play a merengue or a mambo, dance while you cook, and don't be shy with the spices. Light a few candles, say a prayer to the four corners, and open your door and your arms to your family and guests.
