A ton of perks come with being the official gateway to the Americas. Miami is blessed with access to restaurants serving awesome food from exotic locales beyond the home of processed cheese. One such place is the Bahamian Pot, a trip to the Caribbean that doesn't require a passport — just your hungry belly. The menu overflows with island favorites such as oxtail, plantains, stewed fish, johnnycakes, and chicken or pork souse. As an ode to good ol' American eatin', the menu also includes soul-food staples such as fried chicken and waffles and pork chop sandwiches. The chefs here have perfected the art of just-right spice; never bland yet nothing that will knock your taste buds from your tongue. And because everything at the Pot is affordable, your wallet will be as full as your tummy. The entire menu is sublime, but a must-try is the guava duff, a fruit-filled ball of boiled dough.
