Because of its proximity to Cuba, Miami hosts a wealth of Cuban restaurants, making Peruvian eatery El Huarike Peruano a distinctive destination for those hankering for South American cuisine. The restaurant’s homemade dishes, such as sautéed beef, Peruvian-style stir-fried chicken, and seafood ceviche, quiet rumbling bellies with their savory flavors and fresh ingredients. Desserts including arroz con leche and helados donofrio sate Spanish-speaking taste buds.
Though pastas and other Italian specialties find their way onto the menu, the chefs at Argentina Steakhouse primarily highlight the culinary culture of their restaurant's eponymous country. Using traditional cooking methods including the parrilla grill, they fill empanadas with beef or plantains, sizzle rib-eye steaks, top breaded chicken with fried eggs, and stuff argentine sausages. The chefs let the aromas of their cooking fill the dining room to help lost busboys find their way back to the kitchen. They also customize catering platters for a range of events, from anniversaries to business meetings to quinceañeras.
VeganAroma's owners, Sabina Torrieri—dubbed a "health food guru" by Daily Candy—and chef Grace Augier, know that any specialty diet, and healthy eating in general, can be extremely difficult to maintain while eating out. So they created VeganAroma in order to help diners get access to healthy foods that are 90%–100% organic.
The duo actually takes healthy eating a step farther by following the raw-food diet, which relies on uncooked fruits, whole-grains, and leafy green vegetables, nuts, seeds, beans and superfoods to nourish the body and help aid digestion and weight loss. Some of the food is never heated above 116 degrees so as not to destroy important enzymes and nutrients. Cooked vegan entrees are served up as daily.
The plant-based meals are yeast-, dairy-, and 95% gluten-free (excluding sandwiches) and handcrafted using vitamin-rich ingredients, such as kale, quinoa, and cashew cheese. Juices, served up individually or for 3- or 7-day juicing detox cleanses, are made fresh from leafy greens. Desserts such as raw cheesecake and chocolate macaroons satisfy any sweet-tooth cravings, as highlighted by the Urban Times, which raved about the chocolate-mousse pie.
The "ARTernative vegan café" also attempts to better the community by displaying a colorful collection of locally made artwork. It spreads the word about raw eating through regular cooking classes and offers wellness programs that teach healthy lifestyle habits, such as how to floss using celery strands.
