Mex in Miami isn’t as easy as other Latin American cuisines, but if you look hard enough, there are some excellent finds. Here are some of the best bets for top-of-the-line tacos and more.

1 Talavera

Talavera takes Mexican cuisine up a notch with dishes you might find in a gourmet restaurant in Mexico city. Their signature dish is a lightly toasted huarache, layered with black-bean puree, lettuce, salsa verde and goat cheese. The dish is served with a choice of chili-rubbed grilled fish, shrimp, tuna, salmon, chicken or beef.

2 Rosa Mexicano

The beloved NY restaurant, known for their table-side guacamole, has two Miami outposts. With chic Mexican-inspired decor and a high-quality ingredients, this isn't your usual taco and margarita joint. Look instead for frozen pomegranate margaritas and handcrafted artisanal tacos with vegetable escabeche.
