Islas Canarias


Cuba isn't that far away, but it's pretty far to go for dinner. And so is Spain. So instead, head to Islas Canarias Restaurant and enjoy cuisines from both nations. Islas Canarias has been a Miami staple since it was opened in 1977, and it continues to dish out original family recipes like oxtail in wine sauce, tamal en cazuela, and chicken filet stuffed with seafood in pink sauce. But everyone knows that you come to Islas Canarias for some of the city’s best croquettes, oblong fried treats reminiscent of hush puppies with chicken or ham inside. The restaurant is as vibrant as the plates it serves, with large, colorful murals covering much of the wall space and lots of room for larger parties.
