In Your City: Maya Tapas and Grill, Miami Beach | QueRicaVida
Maya Tapas and Grill in Miami

If you like a casual atmosphere, Miami Beach’s vibrant energy and Argentinean meat, you’ve got to try Maya Tapas and Grill, which serves up traditional Argentinean dishes with an extra Latino and European twist.

The restaurant is located five minutes away from Brickell and has a second branch on Lincoln Road. Even though there are no shortage of places to satisfy your palate in the heart of Miami Beach, Maya Tapas goes the extra mile with its homemade dishes, which include hot and cold tapas, popular Argentinean staples like grilled entraña (skirt steak) and barbecue, empanadas, and grilled chorizo sandwiches (choripán) with chimichurri sauce. You can also enjoy grilled Brie, which is creatively paired with chickpeas or enveloped in a breakfast omelet. And yes, they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner here.

If you’re not craving Argentinean cuisine, Maya Tapas and Grill also offers other tapas like hummus, bruschetta, tapenade, ceviche and traditional Spanish dishes like Iberian ham. The dishes are fresh, homemade, and diverse; the menu has an option for every taste and there’s even a kid’s menu—and by the way, the atmosphere is very kid-friendly. Oh, and did I mention that their pizzas are absolutely divine? The menu also includes pasta, meat, fish and even risotto. Small wonder that the restaurant has been a local favorite for the past 10 years.

From the dessert menu, my favorite options—and you might not be surprised here—are the classic flan with whipped cream and the dulce de leche cheesecake.

The atmosphere and service are very friendly and relaxed, and the chef even comes out to greet the clients (a little detail I love). This place makes you feels right at home.

Whether you’re in the mood for Argentinean, Spanish or Italian cuisine, Maya Tapas and Grill promises a great experience, even more so if you like to people-watch while you enjoy your meal!

Oh, and the restaurant now accepts pesos as a way to honor its Argentinean roots. What a cool idea!
