Caja Caliente is the self-proclaimed inventor of the original Cuban taco, which is essentially just a seven-inch flour tortilla with generous portions of Cuban things like lechon and vaca frita. Both of those are good, though we prefer the crispy gator tacos, which taste like fish sticks and chicken fingers that got into a fight. Caja’s first brick-and-mortar location is in Coral Gables, and it’s a casual little space that feels somewhere between a tiki bar and a seafood shack.
