Looking for a downright fresh and scrumptious taco in Miami? From pork to duck tacos, here are five spots that are serving up Miami’s most wanted tacos. Ay yai yai!
1 Panza Taco at Bodega
Bodega Taqueria has become a staple in South Beach thanks to their undeniably tasty Mexican street food. Chef Bernie Matz considers himself a connoisseur of the taco and we agree he is certainly deserving of the title. Their popular Panza taco is the proof. This bangin' taco has guajillo braised nuskee pork belly, charred onions, fried jalapenos, cilantro, and red mole sauce. Every bite is full of flavor.

2 Japanese Taco at Bazaar by José Andrés
The Bazaar restaurant is located inside the SLS hotel. Don't be fooled, this opulent restaurant can serve up a mean taco. Chef José Andrés knows a balanced dish and so it comes as no surprise that a taco can be as gourmet as this one. This Japanese style taco has grilled eel, shiso, cucumber, wasabi, and pork chicharrones. They look pretty and are simply savory.

3 Taco, Queso, or Guaco Loco at T-Mex
T-Mex is open late and offers fresh delicious tacos at very reasonable prices. Any "loco" item is a crispy taco wrapped in a soft tortilla with refried beans, melted cheese, or guacamole. Taco devotees can pick from beef, chicken tofu, bean or rice, fish, or steak and get it any of the three loco ways. Don't forget to drizzle their guacamole and honey-lime dressing on your crazy good taco.

4 Carnitas de Pato Taco at Coyo
Located in the hip neighborhood of Wynwood is Coyo. This spot claims to have "Miami's freshest Mexican street food experience." Coyo uses 100% natural ingredients and their carnitas de pato and al pastor taco are 100% goodness. We can't deicide which one wins. Carnitas de pato: crispy duck, confit style, and serrano salsa or al pastor: pork, roasted pineapple, onion.
5 Fried Chicken Taco at Huahua's Taqueria
Huahua's taqueria is located on South Beach and is a fusion of southern style food and authentic Mexican. Their fried chicken taco was featured on the Cooking Channel so it's definitely top five worthy. The award-winning irresistible taco features jalapeño cornbread, cabbage, and cilantro mixed with rich ancho ranch dressing. If that isn't an award-winning combination then we don't know what is. ¡ORALE!
