Miami New Times' Description

A tiny space packed with hungry patrons who know what Cuban food is all about. It may take three people to finish the bistec uruguayo, a breaded palomilla steak filled with Swiss cheese and ham. All the daily specials are wonderful and are gone quickly. Suggestions: half chicken with mojo, pigs' feet la andaluza, oxtail stew, and fried whole snapper. If there's room, try the deceitfully delicate tocino del cielo, a flan made with egg yolks and cinnamon syrup -- sublime.

    Tried the croquetas from here a few days ago and fell in love - so good! They offer catering, so if you're planning an event for people who enjoy good Cuban food, this is the place to turn to!

    An age old argument amongst Miami's Cuban population still hasn't really resolved which Cuban restaurant in town is tops. Islas Canarias is pretty high up there, if not at the top. [Eater 38 Member]
