El Carajo

Some of the best tapas in Miami can be found in a gas-station convenience store at the corner of South Dixie Highway and SW 17th Avenue. Past the shelves of motor oil, sodas, and potato chips is El Carajo. This thoroughly charming wine and tapas bar offers a 2,000-bottle wine list and a roster of tapas and main plates almost as extensive. Even better, wine and food are exceptional values. The tabla de carne, an assortment of grilled skirt steak, lamb and pork chops, chicken breast, sausages, potatoes, and roasted peppers, will easily feed three hungry diners. Finish with a rich, creamy guanabana flan.
