Any place that serves Juane or Chonta?

Coming to Miami soon, and Juane and chonta are one of the few things that are impossible to find in NYC that I miss terribly from trips to Peru. Are there restaurant that serves these? I did find Florida Cookery to serve a version of Chonta, but I rather find more "authentic" version...

For those who are unfamiliar, Juanes is a tamale-style jungle food that is rice-based which is sold on streets for 1-3 dollars depending on type of meat that is inside along w/ a single marinated olive that condiments the dish. My friend & I used to eat this w/ mixture of crushed pea-sized very hot pepper & salt. Chonta is a simple shaved fresh hearts of palm salad tossed w/ oil & salt +/- lime.
