UPDATE: We're giving you permission to chow down on some of these must-trys this weekend. Again. This story originally ran April 10, 2012.
There are a lot of reasons to live in Miami. The culture. The climate. That whole thing where you're surrounded by endless skies and blue ocean as far as the eye can see. But that all pales in comparison to the food. With Latin American flavors and world-class chefs, we've got some of the best grub in the US of A. So, with all the Cubanos in the city, it's safe to say you won't find better Cuban cuisine without a short, illegal (for now) boat trip. To save you time and legal fees, we’ve rounded up 10 of our favorite Cuban specialties, sorted by your craving and needs, and all available right here in your own hometown. Prepare to drool, and let us know what we might have missed out below (your abuelitas' sopa china doesn't count, either).
