Bodega South Beach
Bodega is a hip, vibrant spot in South Beach that offers outrageously good Mexican street food and beverages. Labeled as an “antojito” (craving) on the menu, the Bodega Guacamole features avocado, red onion, cilantro, and tomato. The order of chips is served with salsa verde, salsa ranchera, and salsa brava. The Al Pastor tacos are a must with spit-broiled pork, charred pineapple, red onion, cilantro, and salsa rosada. And the Pescado tacos are a favorite with grilled Mahi, charred pineapple slaw, pickled onions, cilantro, and chipotle-cotija dressing. You can thank Chef Bernie Matz, creator of the Bodega menu and a self-proclaimed “connoisseur of the taco” for all the explosive flavors. Wash it all down with a Don Diablo cocktail, which contains Illegal Joven, Mezcal, passionfruit, lime, hellfire bitters, topped with hibiscus jarritos. Just order at the taco truck window and enjoy each and every bite of bold, authentic Mexican food. Make sure to pay the bathroom a visit too after finishing up the guac.

Located in Sunset Harbour, “Tequiztlan Tequileria and Cocina Mexicana” by El Rancho Grande, opened its doors on May 20, 2013. Since then, it has created quite the buzz in the Miami Beach community. Tequiztlan is a chic, yet casual restaurant with a lofty feel that serves up delectable authentic Mexican food. The guacamole is made tableside with fresh avocado, tomato, onions, cilantro, jalapeños (depending on how caliente you like it), and salt & lime to your taste. Although, the guacamole is big, we have a feeling that one for the table just won’t be enough. Not only does tequiztlan have a killer guac, they are also known for their Parillada, which serves up to two people. What’s the parillada you ask? A rich combination of steak, chicken, shrimp, fish fillet, grilled to perfection with bell peppers, onions, bacon, and fresh tomatoes served with rice, beans, crema mexicana, guacamole, and a basket of flour tortillas. To top it all off, this Mexican eatery specializes in the art of drinking, offering a plethora of tequilas and mezcales to pair with your meal.

The Coyo guacamole is freshly smashed when ordered and features hass avocados, cilantro, and pico de gallo. Can’t get enogh of that guac? Coyo has a solution for that and it’s called the guacamole bowl, here’s how it works: choose any taco, Coyo guacamole, rice and beans, pico de gallo, all mixed together in a bowl and there you have it, an avocado aficionado’s dream come true. Whether it’s their carne asada taco with seared angus steak, smoked bacon, and chicharron de queso, or their camaron taco with flour tortilla, seared gulf shrimp, mango slaw, and chipotle aioli, everything is fresh.
