7. Etzel Itzik 18757 W Dixie Hwy, Miami, FL 33180

Unless you've got a good tip from some locals, you might not even know this place exists, but you should. You’ll receive a grand selection of salads with pita bread the moment you sit down, and it’s one of the few places in town that serve chicken heart. Oh, and if that's not for you, they also have Moroccan spicy sausage, kebab, and falafel.
