Best Cuban Food in Miami

If there is anything more Cuban than a cigar and a good “ron añejo”, it has got to be a “café con leche” and a Cubano. Traditional Cuban cuisine has influences from many different cultures such as African, Spanish, French, African, Arabic, Portuguese, and Chinese. This diversity shows in the flavors and spices that involve Cuban cooking.

 

And Miami is well known for its Cuban cuisine. With so many different choices, how do we know where to have a taste of great Cuban food?

 

Because we know how hard it can be to choose a dining spot, here is our selection of the best Cuban food in Miami and where to find it.

Puerto Sagua

This spot in South Beach has no pretenses. Typical Cuban food, excellent service, and better prices, what else can you ask for?

 

A crowd pleaser is the oxtail stew, so juicy and tender; it makes my mouth water just thinking about it. It comes with a side of sweet, fried plantain and rice. Another one of my favorites is the coconut shrimp, because…coconut!

 

If you want a filling, wholesome meal full of flavor, Puerto Sagua is the place to go. They are open from 7 am to 2 am so you can have breakfast, lunch, or dinner…or all three! I know I have!

 

It’s a great place to take your Miami SEO clients out for a lunch.

El Rey de las Fritas

YES! As in the KING of Cuban hamburgers! And the king they are. If you have never tried a frita, you have been missing out!

 

Think of a typical hamburger, only the patty is slathered in some mysteriously delicious sauce, and instead of tomato, lettuce, and onions, and sauces, there is a pack of thinly cut –almost grated- fries and grilled onions to complete the frita. Has your mouth started watering yet? If it hasn’t, let us just say you can also have it with cheese and bacon, or with eggs.

 

Something else that is different about the frita is the bread, instead of the typical bun, fritas are encased in crispy crust buns that in my opinion are P.E.R.F.E.C.T.

 

If you find yourself wandering around Little Havana, you should definitely check it out. El Rey de las Fritas is open from 8 am till 10 pm.

El Palacio de Los Jugos

I am wondering what it is about Cuban restaurant owners that they always choose regal names for their joints. Can anyone explain?

 

Anyway, you did not come here to answer questions, so let us get back to the point.

 

El Palacio de Los Jugos has been around for more than 20 years, and in all that time it has never disappointed.

 

This joint consist of a three-in-one restaurant. You can find a varied assortment of food and juices. Which is personally why I go there I mean, the food is awesome, but it is hard to find truly delicious tropical juices, even in Miami. The maracuyá (passion fruit) juice is to die for.

 

El Palacio de Los Jugos has several locations throughout Florida, and they are open from 8 am to 8 pm.

Café Versailles

Are you starting to see the pattern here? Versailles is a palace, palace is palacio in Spanish, palacios are usually inhabited by kings and queens…just sayin’.

 

Café Versailles is one of those places you simply have to visit if you are rummaging around the airport looking for something to eat. I came here the 1st time with a Miami web design customer.

 

They serve the perfect cortadito. Their pastries –especially the guava and cheese- are delicious, and the empanadas are a juicy heaven, the perfect welcome or farewell for a trip to Miami.

 

Café Versailles at Miami International Airport is open from 5 am to 10 pm.

Well, that should be more than enough to get you going for now!
