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.
