Islas Canarias

285 NW 27th Ave. Miami, FL 33125 | Central Dade | 305-649-0440

Location Description:

A tiny space packed with hungry patrons who know what Cuban food is all about. It may take three people to finish the bistec uruguayo, a breaded palomilla steak filled with Swiss cheese and ham. All the daily specials are wonderful and are gone quickly. Suggestions: half chicken with mojo, pigs' feet la andaluza, oxtail stew, and fried whole snapper. If there's room, try the deceitfully delicate tocino del cielo, a flan made with egg yolks and cinnamon syrup -- sublime.
