Cuban food

Are you in love with Cuban food and looking for the best Cuban food in Miami? Well, Miami is the melting pot of South American culture. It has transformed into an international city. Strictly speaking, Miami is proud of its Cuban culture. So much so that, even though Miami is so diverse, the majority culture is Cuban. Also, the food is evident of this specific fact. Whether it is quality or quantity that you are looking for, Miami, indeed, fulfills it. From sweet to sour, spicy, and smoky, there is no end to what Miami has to offer.

Cuban cuisine is comfort food. Cuban food, for the most part, is Spanish-based but with a lot of new world ingredients. Also, it has few influences from African and Chinese cuisine. The food is very homey, and it is usually not too spicy. Cuban food is a simple, down-home nature. Also, people from many different countries enjoy the variety that Cuban cuisine has to offer. Thus, let us begin cracking down on the places that serve the best Cuban food in Miami.


Not all Duffy’s are created equal. At the Duffy’s in North Miami Beach you can catch the big game and enjoy the 2 for 1 drinks as you can in all Duffy’s but the location sets this Duffy’s apart. Feel free to pull up in your boat on the intercoastal for an afternoon snack or enjoy grabbing drinks while being served in the pool. The outdoor patio is what makes this Duffy’s special. Definitely order the Sesame-Crusted Ahi Tuna (large) and the Salted Caramel Cookie Sundae and check out the Rubber Duckie Pool Party that appears on select Sundays.

Cream Parlor

Hard ice cream can be difficult to lo cate in South Florida, let alone homemade ice cream. If you love it search no further than Cream Parlor in the Upper East Side neighborhood. This quaint, vintage ice cream parlor with fantastic food, mouth watering homemade ice cream and lovely owners. Don’t miss the hidden patio out back which is a wonderful place to kill an afternoon snacking and relaxing. The loaded Smoked Salmon Tartine with a Rose Petal Latte and a scoop of Unicorn Poop ice cream with added peanut butter for dessert makes for a perfect lunch combination. Don’t forget about the Nutella Hot Chocolate! Make sure to say hi to the friendly husband/wife duo that owns the spot as they are as interesting as the unique ice cream flavors.

Taquiza Tacos

Order the Toptopos (blue masa chips) and the Climate Control at this Atlantic Heights neighborhood hotspot. The chips are homemade and definitely not replicable. They come out hot, salty and crunchy with delicious guacamole and pico de gallo. The drink is like a painkiller, only better. We’ve ordered an array of tacos and all have been delicious. The horchata is definitely refreshing as well. Take a walk on the beach afterward or if it’s a Friday night check out the beach drum circle.
