When most people think about Hialeah, they... um, laugh. Then they think about Spanglish-inspired business names, excessive car honking, people selling groceries in the parking lot, and sweet mom-and-pop eat spots. And they might be right, but what they don’t know is there are certain things only people raised in the Floridian Havana will understand about Hialeah. Here are just a few… the icing on the bocadito, if you will.
1. Don't you ever dare confuse East Hialeah with West Hialeah
That’s like confusing a Blood for a Crip, or Chicken Kitchen for Chicken Grill.
2. Driving through West 49th St is NEVER a good idea
It doesn’t matter how bad you need that batido from El Palacio De Los Jugos.
