This new addition to the area is THE place to satisfy your Mexican-fix. Menu items include required dishes, such as carnitas or al pastor chicken, but we recommend the more inventive fare, such as the fried chicken taco, which is topped with jalapeño cornbread, cabbage, ancho ranch, and cilantro.

Coming to Miami and not having Cuban food is like going to New York and not having Pizza. This new addition to the beach offers some of the most authentic versions of the dishes that make Cuban cuisine so indulging and satisfying. Come here for the Pollo a la Milanesa, a crispy and juicy breaded chicken steak topped with ham and melted cheese. This alone would be enough to fill you to the brim, but a side of moros (black beans and rice) and platanitos (fried sweet plantains) are just too good to say no.
