Five Places to Eat in Miami You Wouldn’t Normally Think Of


Five Places to Eat in Miami You Wouldn’t Normally Think Ofbg

The food scene in Miami is more than just Cubano sandwiches and mojitos. Finding the best places to eat in Miami requires a certain willingness to explore outside the obvious spots and to trust the locals who know the area.

5 Unusual Places to Eat in Miami

Here are our five pics for Miami eating spots that you might not have thought of.

Mama y Papa

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and possibly one of the neatest little local places to grab brunch breakfast is Las Olas Cafe. It’s a nice little spot where locals pick up their morning meal and enjoy the Florida sun. For about $4, you can grab eggs (any style), home fries, bacon and a Cafe Cubano. Fair warning, though, it’s cash only.

A Taste of Haiti

Although their countries are close geographically, Haitian cuisine is distinctly different from the Cuban fare more readily found in Miami restaurants. To get a true taste of Haitian cuisine, check out Tap Tap. Try the goat stew for a dish you’ll have a hard time finding anywhere else in town, or the charcoal-grilled conch for something extra special. Take in the beautifully painted and very colorful murals while you enjoy your meal.

Cook Books

While the average Barnes & Noble has a Starbucks with their branded drinks and typical pastries, The Cafe at Books & Books has authentic cuisine. Not merely sandwiches, but a broad variety of fare from Key West crab cakes to vegan dishes like grilled ratatouille. Curl up with a good book, a glass of wine and a fine meal all in one spot.

Smuggler’s Foods

Tucked away at the end of No Name Harbor in Bill Baggs Cape State Park, Boater’s Grill is not easy to get to. However, getting there will be worth it for the locally sourced seafood. Being so close to the water, you’d be hard-pressed to find fresher seafood short of fishing it out yourself. The whole fried snapper is certainly a treat, but it’s just one of many dishes available, and at reasonable prices to boot.

Our Italian Restaurant

When you want good Italian food, you don’t want kitsch. You want a cozy atmosphere and delightful variety of dishes – not just the same-old, same-old. La Locanda is the spot to deliver on both counts. Dig into the four-cheese goodness of the fiocchetti con pera 4 formaggi or try out a thin-crust pizza like the prosciutto crudo.
