July 2019: Miami is still a pretty young city, and our collective palette is ever-evolving. Thus, we’ve taken care to consider the city’s expanding tastes, adding three new items to our list of the most quintessentially Miami foods. We’re in the thick of summer now, so it’s no wonder fresh ceviches, healthy juice bars and ice cream have finally claimed their space on this list. Peep our updates below, which include nostalgic scoops from Cream Parlor, plant-based super-foods from Love Life Cafe and mouthwatering citrus-cured ceviche from Sabor a Perú.
People think Miamians spend their days noshing on Cuban food and taking swigs of cafecito every chance they get. Well, this is only partly true. We certainly eat our share of Cubanos but a 305-ers’ diet is also heavy on Miami stone crabs, arepas and more of the foods that represent our coastal lifestyle and the city’s melting pot of cultures. Miami is a place where eating around the world is as easy as hopping in your car and driving to Little Havana or Wynwood, and that’s just what locals do when they’re craving these only-in-Miami eats.
