Miami may be home to a $1,000 ice-cream sundae, a $65 burger, and other extravagant offerings, but this fair city also offers affordable fare.

Looking beyond the golden arches for dollar menu items isn't easy, though. Short Order scoured the city on a George Washington-dollar-bill budget. We admit we went a nickel and dime over on a couple of choices, but none of these delicious food items will break the bank. Dig in and eat your buck's worth of grub.

10. Three chocolates for $1 at Buena Vista Chocolate & Wine

Chocolate-making has been in Claude Postel's family for seven generations. He even has the old molds to prove it. Though the bonbons with exotic fillings cost $1.50 each, look toward the case on the left, where there's a bowl of pure chocolates in milk and dark varieties. They are priced three for $1. Grab some of the creations, whose shapes change seasonally and are a favorite among children.

9. Dolmas at Jerusalem Market & Deli

Dolmas are deliciously briny bundles of joy. At Jerusalem Market, you can get meat-filled grape leaves for 85 cents or two vegetarian rice-filled ones for $1. They are full of flavor and fluffy rice.
