Right in the middle of the mouth of Downtown Miami, La Granja Restaurant sits on the corner of SE 2nd Avenue and SE 2nd Street (in front of the Chase Bank). Its is a Peruvian Styled restaurant with hints of Miami Latin food that is popular in the city. Great prices, flavorful food and free parking with validation, which is almost unheard of in most places in Downtown.
During the day, La Granja is a casual fast food experience in the heart of Downtown Miami – meaning you order at the counter and then your food is brought out to your table when its ready. And at night, it takes on more of a restaurant format. And the vibe I got after eating at La Granja is that its very neighborhood friendly and it caters to a lot of regulars – which must mean they’re doing something right.
I took a couple photos of the dishes our table had including the signature Peruvian dish: the Lomo Saltado (3rd photo) which consists of sirloin cooked with vegetables and served with rice and french fries). We also had the Jalea Mixta (2nd photo), another Peruvian dish that consists of seafood, fried yuca, red onions and more. And then what I ordered (1st photo), which was their anchor Rotisserie Chicken – which is as simple as you can get, but just amazing and so affordable. La Granja perfected their Rotisiree Chicken formula – crunchy on the outside and flavorful in the inside. With that said, I ordered the quarter chicken with two sides: Garlic Potatoes and Tostones. But by far, their chicken meals are the draw for lunch as many take advantage of the $4-5 price point. And then you can’t forget all the sauces that are house made – as well as a special Beberash Bottled Organic Tea from Peru that they sell along with the rest of the usual drinks and soft drinks. But their menu is so vast that there is something for everybody no matter the day.
So if you’re on the run or have a little time to sit down with hearty and healthy Latin food – La Granja is the place to go.
