When you spot the decorative cacti out front, you’ll know you’ve arrived at Bakan. This lovely Wynwood restaurant offers traditional Mexican dishes far removed from the taco joints that proliferate throughout Miami. Here you’ll find Oaxacan mole dishes and whole grilled fish (and quesadillas and guacamole if that’s your jam). If you’re feeling adventurous, look for the “Los Exoticos” section of the menu. Try the gusanos de maguey, pan-fried agave worms served with blue-corn tortillas and a side of guacamole; and the escamoles, a rare ant caviar sautéed with butter, serrano chilies, and epazote and then wrapped in a blue-corn tortilla and topped with a spoonful of guacamole and pickled vegetables. Wash down your incomparable meal with a selection from Bakan’s list of 200-plus tequilas and mezcals. New Normal: Bakan’s gorgeous outdoor terrace, accented with rock gardens and aloe plants, has been expanded onto the sidewalk for additional outdoor seating.
