Miami Beach is known for its folklore and the many cultures that it houses, among them the Cuban culture, one of the most important things about this culture is their food! You might think that you should be able to find popular Cuban restaurants in South Beach pretty much everywhere, but, unfortunately, that is not the case in Miami Beach. There are very few places that actually have authentic Cuban food. The good news is that you can find them in different places, at different prices, so everyone can afford it! And we just so happen to know the best places to enjoy these meals.
If what you are looking for is more of a casual place, almost café-like, where you can enjoy real Cuban food, then you definitely want to check out Puerto Sagua, located on 700 Collins Avenue. Not only are they famous for their delicious food, but they are also very well known for their “fast and friendly” service, and their reasonably priced menus. Puerto Sagua is open every day from 7:00 AM to 2:00 AM, making it the perfect place to grab a bite, no matter what time it is. If you have any questions, feel free to call their number: (305) 673-1115.
