La Camaronera Fish Market

1952 W. Flagler St. Miami, FL 33135 | Central Dade | 305-642-3322

Location Description:

It's standing-room only come lunchtime at this longtime Flagler fish market, not only because locals flock here in abundant numbers, but also because there are no chairs. However, there is a counter to lean on, and all the makings of a real Cuban fish-fry -- including, most important, a steady supply of fresh seafood. Like the yellowtail snapper that gets breaded, fried, and plunked onto a semolina bun. For $3.25. That's all there is to it. Sure you can find places to get pish-poshier fish sandwiches, like on focaccia with mango mayonnaise, but it won't taste as good as this one. La Camaronera also makes incredible fried shrimp -- as the name would imply.
