Until a few years ago, nobody had any idea what a “Cuban taco” was. But thanks to Chef Mika Leon, it’s become as much a part of the Miami culinary landscape as cafecitos. Leon’s massively popular Wynwood food truck birthed her current brick and mortar where you can get lechon and vaca frita tacos, plus massive bowls of those meats plus alligator and octopus. During quarantine, Leon also started hosting cooking classes on her Instagram live, and is in the process of penning a virtual cookbook.
How to support: Head to the physical store at 808 Ponce de Leon Blvd. in Coral Gables or the Design District food truck at 95 NE 40th St. You can also order online.
