Herman Cain asks for help speaking 'Cuban'

(By Catalina Camia, USA TODAY) - GOP presidential hopeful Herman Cain reportedly made another gaffe today while campaigning in Miami, asking people at the famous Versailles Restaurant what the Cuban word is for "delicious."

Fox News, among others, has a videotape of Cain's visit to the cafe, which is a perennial campaign stop for politicians. Cain can be seen on the tape sampling strong Cuban coffee and a croqueta, a deep-fried delicacy filled with ham.

Asked how he liked his snack, Cain can be heard asking, "How do you say 'delicious' in Cuban?"

Cubans speak Spanish.
