Miami New Times' Description

Some of the best tapas in Miami can be found in a gas-station convenience store at the corner of South Dixie Highway and SW Seventeenth Avenue.

A bottle of wine with your meal costs retail plus ten bucks, tapas are almost all less than $10, and the $18 tabla de carne - an assortment of grilled skirt steak, lamb and pork chops, chicken breast, sausages, potatoes, and roasted peppers - will easily feed three hungry diners. Also check out the generous salpicón de mariscos and intensely garlicky gambas al ajillo; then finish with a rich, creamy guanabana flan.
