This Cuban Pizzeria on Red Road just north of Calle Ocho is one of the coziest restaurants in Miami. Its split dining room and yellow walls gives us a warm and fuzzy feeling that’s the perfect accompaniment to Miami’s best comfort food. The chef here (whose name is not Bulila, by the way) loves to poke out from the kitchen and survey the happy diners munching away on fluffy pizzas with a look of contentment. Compliment him on his pizzas, and you’ll be rewarded with twinkly eyes and a warm smile. Our favorite pizza to order here is topped with empella, which is unsalted pork fatback that gets crispy and golden brown in the oven. It’s a less salty alternative to bacon, which doesn’t overwhelm the cheese and well-seasoned tomato sauce. On top of pizzas, Bulila Chef also specializes in discos voladores, one of our favorite types of Cuban sandwiches.
