Little Havana Food Run
If you’re a food enthusiast like us, then Little Havana in Miami is a place you simply can’t miss. At Georgia Foodies, we recently embarked on a mouthwatering adventure through this vibrant neighborhood, known for its rich Cuban heritage and, of course, its delicious food.
Our one-day food run took us to some fantastic restaurants, each offering a unique culinary experience. Here’s a taste of what we savored at three of Little Havana’s must-visit spots:
El Ray De Las Fritas: The Home of Flavorful Fritas
Our first stop was at El Ray De Las Fritas, often hailed as the king of Fritas. If you’re wondering what Fritas are, imagine a Cuban-style hamburger, but with a flavorful twist. At El Ray De Las Fritas, we couldn’t resist trying both the classic Fritas Original and the Victoriano.
The Fritas Original, a true crowd-pleaser, combines seasoned ground beef, onions, and a secret sauce, all served on a Cuban roll. The result? A burst of savory flavors with a hint of sweetness.
The Victoriano, on the other hand, is a Frita topped with crispy potato sticks, adding an irresistible crunch to every bite. It’s a must-try if you’re looking for a delightful twist on the classic Frita.
Sanguich De Miami: A Slice of Cuban Heaven
Our culinary journey continued at Sanguich De Miami, a cozy spot specializing in Cuban sandwiches that redefine deliciousness. We ordered the Cubano Original and paired it with a rich and aromatic Cortadito.
The Cubano Original is a masterpiece of flavors. Tender roast pork, ham, Swiss cheese, pickles, and mustard are all pressed between Cuban bread, creating a harmonious blend of savory and tangy goodness. It’s a true Cuban classic and a delight for the taste buds.
To complement the sandwich, we sipped on a Cortadito. This Cuban espresso topped with steamed milk is the perfect balance of strong and creamy, making it an ideal choice to accompany your meal.
El Pub Restaurante: Milas de Puerco Delight
Our final destination was El Pub Restaurante, where we indulged in a dish that’s a true testament to Cuban comfort food – the Milas de Puerco. This dish consists of thin, tender pork cutlets, marinated and seasoned to perfection, and then fried to a crispy golden brown.
The Milas de Puerco at El Pub Restaurante were nothing short of amazing. Each bite was a medley of flavors and textures, from the crispy exterior to the juicy, flavorful interior. Paired with traditional black beans and rice, it was a meal that left us craving for more.
As we concluded our food run through Little Havana, we couldn’t help but be impressed by the culinary treasures hidden within this vibrant neighborhood. Each restaurant we visited offered a unique experience and a chance to savor authentic Cuban flavors.
So, if you ever find yourself in Miami and craving a culinary adventure, make sure to explore Little Havana. And, of course, stay tuned to Georgia Foodies for more gastronomic journeys that will tickle your taste buds and inspire your foodie spirit. Until then, happy eating!
