What should we see and eat in Little Havana?

Hola! I’m curious to know if anyone has any recommendations about places to see in the Little Havana area of Miami. I'm going to my cousin's wedding down there and have already done the South Beach scene so I’d like to see something new. I'll probably be exploring with my cousins who are around my age (20s).  Would love restaurant recommendations in that area too!

Hola Lizzie!   Little Havana is a fun spot!  Definitely walk through  Calle Ocho.  It's a main street through the neighborhood that's full of stores and restaurants.  Great for window shopping and snacks and you check out a cigar factory ( Padilla Cigars is a popular one) and see people play dominoes like you would in Havana.

For restaurants,  Versailles is probably the most popular for Cuban food.  Their cafe con leche and plantains: OMG!  It's a decent sit down place.  For an even fancier place,  Jamon Iberico Pata Negra Restaurant Tapas & Wine Bar is, well... their name pretty much describes them!  Great tapas, plus great paella!  Another one of my favorite Cuban restaurants in the neighborhood is  El Exquisito and  Paseo Catracho is great for Honduran food.  Both very authentic.

I hope you have fun and let me know if you have any other questions about Miami!

Hi Lizzie, 

I'd recommend Mr. Yum - Asian Cuisine. The sushi is infused with familiar-to-locals ingredients like mangoes and sweet plantains. Go see Maximo Gomez Park, or "Domino Park" to see the old-timers playing dominoes. :)

Arroz con pollo is chicken and yellow rice...a favorite of many.  Picadillo, Cuban sandwiches, midnight sandwiches...Cuban food is delicious you can't go wrong.

Versailles is very good but don't count out a mom and pop cafe. Cuban restaurants are everywhere in Miami.
