With all of the attention Miami Spice gets this time of year, you probably had no idea that the 6th annual Taste of Central America starts today at the Intercontinental Hotel in Doral right now.

A world of cuisine will be prepared from Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua prepared by chef Marcial Cañas, who's being flown in from Costa Rica to be in Miami on September 11-15.

The chef will feature dishes such as pacayas from Guatemala, pejibaye with mayonnaise and onion from Costa Rica, baleadas from Honduras, pupusas from El Salvador, and guiso de pipian from Nicaragua.

The smorgasbord of Central American eats will await you at the Armillary Grill. There a special lunch buffet ($20.95 for adults, $12.95 for kids) served til Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. A four-course dinner ($23.95 adults/$13.95 kids) is happening on Saturday the 14th from 5-11, and the Central American Independence Day on Sunday will see a brunch ($26.95 adults/$14.95 kids) from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Reservations are highly recommended.

This event is particularly meaningful for the hotel because it is joining forces with Avianca and WorldCity to benefit Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos USA, a global organization whose mission is to provide a permanent family and home for orphaned, abandoned, and at-risk children who live in conditions of extreme poverty. NPH has orphanages in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua, among other locations.
