    Default Best Tacos in Miami 2022

    Though the words “taco explosion” sound kind of like a horrible mariachi cover band, they're the best words to describe what’s happened in Miami over the past couple of years. With the seemingly weekly opening of chef-driven taco spots -- which apparently all come complete with a back-room speakeasy -- there's been great debate over which are the best. But lest we forget, Miami is also a city ripe with authentic street tacos in grimy little taquerias, many of which are just as good as (if not better than) places with AC and spotless sanitation. So which truly are the best tacos in Miami? Here are 12 we can't get enough of.When it comes to infinite variations and regional styles of Mexico’s beloved street food, let’s face it: The West Coast reigns supreme.But second to Cali is Miami, where our Latin influence offers its own rainbow of culture, flavor, and flair. And with an ever-expanding food scene, our taco takeover only continues to grow.

    So grab an ice-cold cerveza or a refreshing margarita and let’s taco ’bout ten of the best tacos in the 305, where taco time is truly all the time.They say the quickest way to get from Miami to Mexico City is via La Santa, chef Omar Montero’s Little River taco shop. Born as a food truck in 2017 and quietly reimagined as a brick-and-mortar restaurant during peak pandemic lockdown days, Montero’s La Santa has emerged as a hotspot for those seeking some of the Magic City’s best tacos. Meat options — whether familiar al pastor or more exotic triple-decker campechano — are uniformly stellar. But so are Montero’s off-the-beaten-track seafood and vegetarian options, like his softshell crab, wild mushroom, and sweet potato versions.

    These days, the Magic City practically overflows with taco takes — an ambitious mix of menus that range from modern Mexican iterations and under-the-radar mom-and-pop taquerias to street-style taco pop-ups and Instagram-famous chefs.Old-school taco spot Mi Rinconcito Mexicano serves up some of the best tacos in Miami.A Little Havana mainstay since 2005, Mi Rinconcito Mexicano boasts a south-of-the-border cantina ambiance from the simple décor to the no-frills Mexican fare. Take it easy on the complimentary tortilla chips and red salsa or you won’t have room for the menu’s stars: the tacos. Soft corn tortillas come with your choice of pork, lamb, tongue, chicken, or chorizo and are packed with onions and cilantro. Request a fiery hit of hot sauce for an extra kick.

    Since opening its first location in Brickell, Pilo’s Street Tacos owner Derek Gonzalez has been on a mission: to operate a company employing people with intellectual and developmental disabilities while offering Miami his take on affordable street tacos. He does both at his original establishment (28 SW 11th St., Miami) and a Wynwood outpost and tequila garden where you can find the “El Pescadito” tacos (grilled or beer-battered fish with red cabbage, pineapple pico de gallo, and smoked chipotle mayo on flour tortillas) and the vegetarian-friendly “El Tizando” tacos (mushrooms al pastor, white onions, cilantro, and pineapple on corn tortillas). And don’t ignore the signature “La Pilo” tacos, served two per order for $10. Gonzalez says they evoke memories of his favorite Mexico City taquerias and swears the combination of pork al pastor, pineapple, white onion, and cilantro is as close to the real deal as you’ll get in Miami.

    Wolf of Tacos chef/founder Eduardo Lara went from hosting pandemic pop-ups in his driveway to serving hundreds of people at the 2021 SOBEWFF. Now the young chef’s real-deal street tacos are all the rage in the Magic City, and ground zero for hardcore taco fans looking for a taste of true tacos al pastor. For Lara, tacos are sacred — no fancy-pants ingredients or upmarket toppings for him. Think simple and messy: fat-slicked slivers of meat shaved directly from the trompo and piled onto a single corn tortilla. That philosophy applies across the board, each variety finished with homemade salsas and served alongside traditional crudités.

    Versions include suadero (a thin cut of beef from between the belly and the leg), longaniza (sausage), and campechano (a combination of several meats, usually beef and pork, in one delicious package), as well as a savory vegan oyster mushroom cooked till it exhibits a meatlike texture and flavor. These aren’t elevated tacos. They aren’t fancy. They’re just damn near perfect. Check Lara’s Instagram to find him cooking alongside chefs Janise Guyot-Cabana and Pablo Reyes at pop-up events across Miami.

    This spot isn’t located in the heart of “Miami'” per se. They actually have two locations, one in Florida City and another in Homestead. I visited their Homestead location. (I pulled-up to the restaurant which is literally part of a gas station. The location definitely made me a little skeptic, I mean, I’m all about small mom-and-pops, but the gas station made me think twice.) After doing a little research on the internet, I realized that Morelia’s Taqueria was actually very well-rated and in fact they were known for having “the best tacos in South Florida.” With an authentic Mexican assortment of meats: al pastor, tongue, tripe, suadero (rib meat), steak, chicken, carnitas, chorizo, barbacoa beef – the options are endless. I went all in and tasted their lengua (tongue) and pastor tacos and they definitely did not disappoint. Mmmmm!
