South Beach can be a bit much with the pools, drinks and chi-chi scene. Sometimes you just want something downright delicious where the people are friendly and the prices good.
Playa Cafe is a Latin restaurant with choices from all over Central America and the Spanish Caribbean. I was literally the only non-native Spanish speaker but the menu has pictures and the ladies behind the counter will answer questions. So many good choices and everyone looked happy and the food amazing. Decided on a Cubano (why not, it’s Miami) and the thing exceeded my already heightened expectations. Both savoury ham and crispy shredded pork with melted cheese out the sides pickles and who cares deliciousness; you could easily share this monster. An extra $2 gets you fries and drink and it’s still $10.
Food gets an 11/10 and service was efficient and friendly. It’s certainly NOT fancy and if you like Senior Frogs this is NOT for you (but lucky you, it’s around the corner!).
Could not be happier and can’t wait to go back and try something else!
