El Palacio De Los Jugos

7085 Coral Way Miami, FL 33155-1602 | Sweetwater/Westchester/West Miami | 305-269-0486

Location Description:

The name literally translates to "the Juice Palace." And this place is exactly that -- one of the best spots in town for fresh, natural juices. But it is also so much more. El Palacio de los Jugos is an open-air restaurant that features three main areas -- a juice bar, a sandwich counter, and a long, large hot-food area that serves kick-ass Cuban food as individual meals or by the pound. Prices tend to be low, even for seafood dishes like lobster. By far the most popular dish here is lechón asado($7.99), served with congri and yuca or maduros. Pescado de aguja ($9.63), with yellow rice, is also extremely popular, as is pollo asado ($8.53), with yellow rice and boniato (fried sweet potato). Splurge on the lobster with yellow rice and two additional sides ($18). There are some tradeoffs, depending on your perspective: The Palace is always jam-packed, and it is usually packed with everyone from young couples to entire families toting screaming toddlers. But the food is fantastic and the prices can't be beat.
