What food is indigenous to Miami?

KAZ | Sep 30, 2013 07:24 AM

I need some help from Miami 'hounds. Each week I am recreating dishes indigenous to areas around the US and Miami is up next. I need help deciding what dish to cook (and potentially what drink to serve with it).

I don't necessarily want the first thing that pops into mind, but rather something that locals treasure. For example, without your help, I'll probably fall back on a Cuban sandwich, but we can do better than that.

To help give you an idea, Buffalo NY and Cleveland OH were recent takes. I avoided Buffalo Wings and went with Beef on Weck ( For Cleveland, I made the Cleveland Polish Boy ( What dish do local Miamians treasure enough that there is a wikipedia page for!

Hopefully that gives you an idea of the type of thing I am looking for.

Thanks in advance.
