Cuban exiles in the 1890's met to plot for independence at a restaurant operated on this site by the patriot Antonio Menendez, a Chinese from Cuba. Many revolutionaries on their way to join the Mambi Army in Cuba, were given warm welcome and free rations. The Freedom fighters, before leaving for guerilla warfare in the savannas, were equipped with machetes and knives from the kitchen of El Chino - Pajarito.On occasions Jose Marti dined here with rebel leaders.
