Little Havana Food & Cultural Tour

Traditional Cuban Food Tastings. A 2.5 Hour Walking Tour. Small Group Setting.

Our original Little Havana Food & Cultural Tour explores the rich history and culinary delights of a vibrant neighborhood. Little Havana was recently listed as an official “national treasure” of the United States by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The neighborhood is well-known for its many historical, political, culinary, and artistic contributions to our Miami culture. Nestled in the heart of the city’s downtown area and only a short drive from Miami’s famed South Beach, the neighborhood is full of interesting cultural landmarks and delicious cuisine.

We’ve scoured Little Havana for the most delicious foods ever created.

Hands Down The Best Bite In Town.

Enjoy a beef picadillo empanada at one of the oldest restaurants in the area. Filled with rustic charm and graced by a large illustration of Cuba across the walls, this establishment forms part of the daily routine of Little Havana locals.
El Pub Restaurant

Pure Guayaba Perfection.

Baked daily at a traditional bakery, this guava, aka guayaba, pastelito filling is smooth, light, and incredibly flavorful. Many pastelitos are created but none matches the taste and simple beauty of this original.
Yisell Bakery

The Island Staple.

Indulge with a glass of freshly squeezed & refreshing guarapo juice, plus enjoy a brief education of the various exotic tropical fruits and vegetables grown in subtropical weather.
Los Pinarenos Fruteria

There Is No Love Sincerer Than Croqueta Love.

Enjoy one of the local’s favorite Cuban snacks, the croqueta de pollo con salsa blanca, at a true Little Havana institution.
Neighborhood Market

The Very Definition of “Moreish.”

After trying this churro, you won’t ever be fooled by a cheap imitation. The real stuff, which uses nothing but quality ingredients to make the dulce de leche is SO good, you’ll eat a whole one and still find yourself going back for more.
Churromania

Salty And Crispy Caribbean.

Let’s face it, yucca frita is a heavenly invention. A deep-fried hug – they’re crispy on the outside, soft and salty on the inside.
Old Havana

Sweet And Luscious Abuela Maria.

Made with Abuelita’s secret recipes and combined with a modern, Latin flair, the Abuela Maria ice cream will cool you down from Miami’s sunny disposition.
Azucar Ice cream

The “Must Have” In Little Havana – by the Travel Channel.

This dark, potent liquid is Miami’s everyday fuel. Similar to an espresso, this ultra-sweet and a revitalizing shot of energy is a Cuban staple found at a famous ventanita.
