Not to be confused with the chichi eatery in Coral Gables, this La Palma is a no-frills West Miami mainstay. Most Magic City natives know it is the place to get churros - basically Latin doughnuts - on a chilly night. And although the café con leche is sweet and typically close to perfection, it's not for dunking. Churros here can be accompanied only by this restaurant's version of hot chocolate, which is more like a melted Hershey's bar than warm milk flavored with chocolate. But who cares? Consuming calories with reckless abandon is part of the fun at La Palma. Try the disco volador, AKA a flying saucer sandwich with ham, cheese, and chorizo ($3.99), or pan con bistec. The ham croquetas are also divine, but steer clear of the fish. Also, if you plan to visit La Palma and don't speak Spanish, make sure to bring someone who does - it'll definitely enhance the experience.
