Where to Eat in Miami: A Food Guide Pt. 1

May 21, 2018admin



Miami’s got culture. And with vibrant culture comes the great traditions of each of these faraway (or relatively close) places. At the very core of each of these cultures is food. It’s the universal intersection and point of congregation–the thing that brings us all together. Over the past year or so, we’ve been spotlighting some of the most notable or seriously delicious eats around Miami. From vegan-friendly local gems to insanely authentic Italian fare, our lists have them all. We decided to help you decide what to eat for dinner quicker by rounding them all up together:

On the Beach

Believe it or not, there are great places to eat on Miami Beach that aren’t followed by three or more dollar signs. Places like Under The Mango Tree and True Loaf serving up the friendliest breakfasts in town. Or A La Folie Cafe, La Sandwicherie, and Sweet Liberty for a charming, low-key meal daily. Check out our list of local gems on South beach here.

For the vegans & vegetarians

Being vegan is more than a meme or just eating lettuce all the time. In fact, there are tons of places offering comforting dishes that you might not even realize are vegan-friendly. There’s Glam Vegan in Midtown with their gorgeous plates as mouth-watering jackfruit tacos. Even Love Life boasts some of the most delicious superfood arepas in town. Dig in to the full list here.

With a cool atmosphere

Sometimes a good meal isn’t just about the food in front of you. The surrounding atmosphere is just as important to us, a direct result from having ‘energetically sensitive’ mothers. You can have a stellar meal at the Bookstore & Kitchen, or over colorful ice cream sandwiches at the nostalgic Cream Parlor. Either way, these are our suggestions for cute spots.

Authentic Italian

Ah, yes. The million dollar question: where can we get real pizza around here? Believe it or not, Miami’s full of great little Italian treasures strewn around town. Discovering history and Italian culture is a norm at Soya e Pomodoro in Downtown. You immediately become family at Red Carpet Italian. Either way, these are the best Italian spots.

The Timeout

Outside of the core

We know that among these lists, Miami’s outer urban core is generally overlooked. Of course Downtown, Wynwood, Midtown etc are more saturated with some of the best eats, but the outer core has some good stuff too. La Fresa Francesa in Hialeah is a cross between French and Cuban and Zaika Indian Cuisine is our absolute favorite. Here are more outer core gems.

Our absolute favorite dishes

And now for the big kahuna. We took the time to breakdown our go-to dishes around town. We’re talking about the bites we dream about, the ones we always go back to. Here they are.
