When it comes to food South Beach Miami stands out as one of the best destinations in the US to enjoy Cuban cuisine. The city’s close proximity to the island and relative large population of Cuban migrants has allowed restaurants with the island’s food to flourish everywhere, yet there’s another favorite food among locals and travelers everywhere that cannot be forgotten. Mexican food is very present in Miami as well, and there are a few restaurants in South Beach where you can enjoy whatever suits your fancy: from simple tacos and quesadillas to more complicated dishes like Chiles en hogada or Pozole.
We’ve selected our favorite Mexican restaurants in South Beach considering three factors: proximity to our very own Red South Beach, value for price and quality of the food. These are our choices!
