Two words.

Calle Ocho.

The only place for real down home Cubano fare. I'll see if I can find the name of the place I liked. Go have a batido de mamey for me. :wub:

I like Puerto Sagua on Washington Ave, around 7th Street, I think. Seems authentic to me, given the ethnicities of the employees, and tastes similar to the Cuban food I've had in restaurants and cooked by co-workers. You'll of course find great Cuban food in Little Havana, too, but Puerto Sagua is convenient and quite tasty.

First off, saying that Calle Ocho is the only place to eat down home Cuban in Miami is like saying Little Italy is the only place to eat down home Italian in Manhattan. Granted, Little Havana has a little more authenticity than what's left of Little Italy, there are places all over the city for Cuban food. Puerto Sagua is a good choice. If you want to stick with Little Havana and Calle Ocho try Versailles (just like everyone else does). My two favorites are a little out of the way. Las Culebrinas is on Flagler St. near 42nd Avenue. It's a bit of a trek but really good. There's also Havana Harry's. It's a little fu-fu, but the food is very good. It's on LeJeuan Rd. near US-1. As for South Beach, Puerto Sagua and maybe David's Cafe would be my recs.
