Miami is a place where you can find expensive gourmet dinners by world-class chefs that will set you back a few hundred dollars. But it's also a place where you can find a thriving food truck scene, dirt-cheap holes in the wall, and neighborhood eateries that will make sure you get the best bang for your buck.
When we talk about restaurants that are a good value here, we're talking about cash-only cafeterias as well as popular business lunch spots that provide hefty portions for your dollar.
We're talking about places like the ever-popular El Palacio De Los Jugos, which began as a Cuban juice joint where expats and others could enjoy some guarapo (straight-up sugarcane juice) or a batido de trigo (puffed wheat milkshake). Here you'll be able to stuff a box full of ready-prepared foods like tamales, congri (Cuban-style rice and beans), yucca, and pan con bistec.
We're also talking about foodie hot spots like Blue Collar, the Upper East Side, homestyle restaurant that's exactly as it sonds. On the menu? Think pulled pork benedict, dry ages burgers, and cheese grits.
