Owner Melissa Vias originally unveiled Malanga Café not only to share the exotic dishes crafted from her meticulous collection of Cuban recipes, but to transport diners to the music- and amusement-filled atmosphere of Cuba itself. Head chef Haydee Porras blends traditional ingredients to forge from scratch items such as crispy croquettes, steaming tamales, and a traditional suckling pig that smokes and crackles as it rotates in its sweltering roaster. Meanwhile, succulent morsels of shredded pork nestle into pillowy baguettes to craft the pan con lechon, whose popular recipe arrived from Santiago de Cuba via Vias's husband. Postmeal, patrons can amuse other senses with games of Cubilete or the rhythms of a live band, then sign a giant mural awash with famous Cuban sayings to personalize a part of history and provide an effective alibi against sushi-eating accusations.

When working in the kitchen at Savor crafting Cuban fare, chef Ariel Alvarez draws on culinary training in Havana and years of restaurant experience, including time at El Floridita, where he served former president Jimmy Carter, Giorgio Armani, and Naomi Campbell. He passes between cooks, who chop fish for ceviche and simmer cauldrons of paella, while forging a menu that adds hints of European cuisine to traditional Cuban recipes. Servers deliver platters of crab-stuffed plantains and oxtail cooked with wine and fresh herbs past photos of Cuba that ornament the walls alongside chalkboards scrawled with the daily specials.

Tinta Y Café is a traditional Cuban café that serves its Little Havana neighborhood well. Centrally located on Calle Ocho, this diminutive eatery offers little in the way of parking or seating, but doesn’t skimp on flavor. The café con leche – offered warm or on ice – is a must, and the rest of the menu isn’t far behind. Look for classic Cuban sandwiches, empanadas and flan, plus sought-after croquettes offered with ham, spinach and bacalao (cod). The interior mimics a library and patrons are encouraged to take down a Spanish-language book and enjoy with their coffee, though the volume is much higher than you’d expect at a quiet place of reading. Thanks to its location in the heart of Little Havana, Tinta y Café offers a nice spot to savor a cup and do some great people watching.

Open since 2000, El Rinconcito Latino is a family-owned establishment in the heart of Coral Gables. The menu features well-priced large portions of Cuban-style chicken, deep fried pork, black beans, liver steak, yellow rice, grilled skirt steak and pasta with shrimp, the latter being offered with either a creamy white or hearty red sauce. There is even an extensive offering of daily specials that push the limits of the diminutive kitchen even further. Located in a strip mall, El Rinconcito is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, while also doing takeout. Inside, wooden cushioned chairs and faux marble table tops are set in rows across a calming gray tile floor. The restaurant usually has a wait for Sunday brunch, but it’s well worth the time spent.

Located in West Little Havana, Morro Castle serves fast-casual Cuban food. The menu includes the classic Cuban breakfast of scrambled eggs with ham, toast, café con leche and fries; Cuban burgers (known as fritas) with potato strings, onions and buttered buns; and churros with hot chocolate. Of course, this being a fully-operational mom and pop shop, there’s the endlessly rotating selection of daily specials, along with side dishes like rice and beans. Despite its small size and somewhat unloved features, Morro Castle continues to deliver fresh food, keep prices low for the neighborhood and somehow manage to impress with their portion size.

The family-owned La Rosa Restaurant has been treating diners to upscale Cuban fare for more than four decades. House specialties run the gamut from stuffed beef tenderloin to Valencian paella, and the menu offers more than a dozen fresh seafood dishes, including crab-stuffed snapper, lobster Creole, and mahi mahi in savory garlic sauce. Meat-lovers can fill up on pork churrasco, baby filet mignon, or rack of lamb, while Cuban-style sandwiches and croquettes make for lighter options. To accompany these savory dishes, the staff prepares mango pie and cream cheese custard and fills glasses with Spanish, Italian, and Australian wines.
