Little Havana

Miami's historic Eighth Street, known locally as Calle Ocho, is America's Cigar Central

La Camaronera (fish and seafood)
1952 West Flagler St., Miami; 305-642-3322

This hard-to-find fish restaurant is small but acclaimed. Local papers have ranked it a top fish spot, and cigarmakers come for the fried fish. A few dollars gets you a simple and memorable lunch: a fresh piece of fish, breaded and fried on a bun.

La Rosa (Cuban)
4041 NW Seventh St., Miami; 305-541-1715

"It's one of the best Cuban restaurants," says Jorge Padrón, president of Padrón Cigars. If you're hungry, go for the masitas de puerco fritas, or fried pork chunks. For something lighter, there's the Cuban staple of camarones al ajillo, or shrimp in garlic and oil.

There are new cigar places since 2008 people might be interested in checking out, such as Palacios Cigars right by the Seminole Hard Rock Casino. Cool, hip place with pool table, music, big 60" TV. It's a cool lounge to hang out at and they have great sales. 3 generations of cigar making since Cuba 1937. Super nice, down-to-earth people, very knowledgeable of the business. Cigar Aficionado and Cigar Aficionado fans should check them out. Great vibe there. ;-)
