Hands down, this is like the most CUBAN spot ever….but they have a lot of great food at a REAL CHEAP PRICE. I’ve been going to this place since I was like six years old so you could say I’m a little biased….but the food is genuinely good.
Without a doubt, Latin American Market off Flagler and 73rd Avenue have the BEST TAMALES IN MIAMI. No question about it. Made with all natural ingredients, these tamales are untouchable by their many competitors. You can either take them for $1.00 each if you take them to go….or if you eat inside its $1.25 each. But just for the sake of the experience, you need to eat inside for at least the first time that you are inside to hear the Cubans talk sh*t among each other and to let the ladies serving you flirt with you a little (lol). Again…best tamales in Miami. Served with Hot Sauce or Ketchup…whatever your preference.
Then…you can’t forget the Guarapo (drink from sugar cane) that they make in house. They also have a killer Cuban Sandwich for $2.50. And 35-cent croquetas, which is unheard of. And its the good kind of croqueta. And for the Dominicans reading this, they sell salchichon (sausage) there as well to accompany your mangu dishes.
Either way, this spot is recommended. Authentic Cuban cafeteria type of experience in an unlikely place – a mini market.
