El Carajo

Top choice spanish in Little Havana

Pass the Pennzoil please. We know it is cool to tuck restaurants into unassuming spots, but the Citgo station on SW 17th Ave? Really? Really. Walk past the motor oil into a Granadan wine cellar and try not to act too fazed. And now the food, which is absolutely incredible.

Bacon-wrapped stuffed dates are pure decadence on a plate, while fluffy tortillas (thick Spanish omelets) have just the right bite. And don't miss the sardines – cooked with a bit of salt and olive oil till they're dizzyingly delicious.
