EL Taquito – 14429 SW 42nd Street
El Taquito has three locations in the city: Little Havana, Coconut Grove and Kendall, and they pride themselves on serving traditional dishes in a traditional setting. All of the meals are served “family style” and made fresh to order. This is a restaurant that’s genuine and without frills. They make simple, good food in a friendly atmosphere that’s open for all. Try their chimichanga, which is a fried tortilla stuffed with steak or chicken, onions, peppers, rice, beans and cheese.
Cantina La Veinte – 495 Brickell Avenue
Cantina La Veinte, or 20, is all about expression. Everything from the décor to the food and to the art that frames the walls is dedicated to Mexican culture. It’s bright, it’s bold, and it’s artistic. The “avant-garde” restaurant sits in the heart of the city, near our Brickell area hotel, and their menu matches their big personality. They have a kale Caesar salad that comes with a “Tijuana twist,” a dish that features citrus shrimp, quinoa and avocado and even Mexican sandwiches that are available throughout the week.
Bodega Taqueria y Tequila – 1220 16th Street
What’s a good Mexican meal without a good Mexican drink, right?! Luckily for you, this fresh and fun restaurant specializes in both! The restaurant is casual and easygoing, and it’s perfect when you’re roaming the streets of Miami Beach and hunger strikes. They offer classic dishes like burritos and quesadillas, along with more modern items like their lime-cilantro quinoa bowl.
Get out into the city and enjoy some chips and salsa, some tasty shredded tacos and a thirst-quenching margarita. The world is yours, Miami.
