Yuga Restaurant in Coral Gables Offers Great Vegetarian Fare

There's no food term more cliched than "hidden gem." I'm over it and so is everyone else. But sometimes, the shoe just fits. And I can't help but put Coral Gables' Yuga in this particular category. It fits the bill all the way around.

It's not for lack of press that they've remained so unassuming. Hell, in the past they've nabbed Miami New Times' Best Japanese Restaurant and Best Pan-Asian awards. Yet this little Coral Gables spot remains completely underrated and often overlooked by Miamians in general.

Their loss.
