Guide to Miami’s delicious Cuban cuisine

Miami has a lot to offer when it comes to its wide variety of food, but the Cuban Cuisine scene is a hit that never disappoints. Here is a guide to the Cuban delicacies you must try while you’re in Miami, and some of the best places to get them! 

Cuban coffee is a must while you’re in Miami. Don’t be fooled by its small size or its sweetness, because this coffee is powerful. When you order a colada, that is several cafecitos meant to be shared with up to six people. 

Some delicacies you won’t want to miss are croquetas and pastelitos. These pastries come in both sweet and savory forms; from guava and cream cheese to ham and chicken. They are great if you want something on the go or are looking for a lighter lunch or breakfast option.

If you are looking for something slightly more filling, you should go with a Cuban sandwich. These are made with ham, roasted pork, Swiss cheese, dill pickles, and yellow mustard on toasted Cuban bread. 

Here are some of the places where you can enjoy all the delicious foods with a Cuban touch in Miami:
