Similar to the city of Miami, La Isla blends elements from many cultures—Mexico, Spain, Argentina, and the U.S.—but leans heavily on Cuba as its primary influence. Inside this colorful family-style restaurant, chefs churn out traditional homemade Cuban food and desserts. Meals here begin with fried yucca, mariquitas, and other shareable treats before moving into entrees such as vaca frita, a popular dish consisting of shredded beef and onions soaked in a tasty mojo sauce. The dessert selection, meanwhile, includes the restaurant's version of tres leches; during prep, chefs soak this spongy Latin American cake in various kinds of milk, just like astronauts need to be before they return to Earth.
