How often have you or someone you know put a conch shell to the ear, claiming to hear the ocean within it? While this may be your only association with the seashell, conch shells have a long history in Key West and the rest of the Florida Keys.
Key West and Cuba have been closely linked throughout history, due to their geographical proximity and Cuba's fight for independence from Spain. Luckily, one of the fruits of this pairing is the rich Cuban cuisine in Key West, spawning several restaurants that dish up tostones rellenos, Cuban mix sandwiches, and more.
