The classic Vietnamese sandwich is executed to perfection at Tran An, but you won’t get charged extra for the gourmet quality. At $9, it’s a pretty massive sandwich stuffed with two kinds of house-made pork (pork roll and roasted), pâté, maggi butter, cucumbers and pickled slaw. It’s served on a crusty French baguette that’s soft but still sturdy enough to hold it all together to transport your sammy, say, somewhere like the beach.
October 2020: If there’s one thing we’ve learned over the last few months of lockdown, it’s the value of great, inexpensive food. And we’re not talking about the many boxes of macaroni and cheese we’ve consumed either. The current crisis has given a renewed importance to affordability when it comes to dining out in Miami, whether it’s picking up a craveable sandwich in Little Havana or sitting down to a feel-good Caribbean feast in Little Haiti or tending to your hangover with a heaping rice bowl at your neighborhood restaurant. At Time Out, we’re committed to helping you find the best cheap eats in Miami and that means scoping the city for excellent food under $10. Below, our picks of the top affordable dishes to tuck into right now.
Where are all the cheap eats, Miami? You may very well have thought this to yourself while reluctantly handing over your credit card for one too many overpriced and underwhelming dishes. Miami has a rep for being an expensive city. We get it. Sometimes it’s deserved, like when you’re forking over $15 for a Bud Light at one of the best South Beach clubs or dropping some crazy dough on a date at one of the most romantic restaurants in Miami. But, rest assured, not all of us can afford to do that very often. So when it comes time to eat like a normal person, we turn to these places to feed us delicious food at prices that don’t require the bank account of a famous rapper. These are the heroes Miami stomachs deserve.
