Ten Best Restaurants in North Miami Beach

North Miami Beach is extremely confusing. First, its name is a misnomer. It is not part of Miami Beach (or North Beach) and no longer has a beach in its city limits. It is also distinctly different from neighboring, similarly named North Miami.

Though Miami doesn't have a Chinatown, Thai Town, Japantown, Little Italy, or Little Lebanon, North Miami Beach comes close. It is here that ethnic food -- beyond Little Havana -- intersects and offers a more varied and authentic taste of the world in the 163rd/167th Street stretch than almost anywhere else in Miami-Dade.

We present you with our countdown of the best places to eat in North Miami Beach, and it spans the globe, with Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, Lebanese, Italian, Honduran, American, and Uzbek food represented.
