David's Cafe 


South Beach is hardly Miami-Dade’s ground zero for Cuban food, so both branches of David’s have, for years, been a lifeline for diners jonesing for ropa vieja, masas de puerca (fried marinated pork chunks), sopa de frijoles negro (black bean soup), a frita Cubana (Cuban-style hamburger), or a fresh mamey shake. It’s true that you’ll pay twice what you’d pay in less glitzy areas of town for these traditional Cuban specialties, so diners might instead want to try some less traditional, more creative fare that can’t be obtained anywhere but David’s, like Caribbean chicken in mango and brandy sauce.
