Club Tipico Dominicano


1344 NW 36th St, Miami
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

This classic Dominican restaurant and nightclub has been around since the ‘80s. From Monday to Thursday, El Típico functions as a restaurant and serves solid versions of Dominican staples, including a great tripe soup with light, tender pieces of tripe. Other hits include one of our favorite versions of stewed oxtail in Miami, a generous serving of stewed goat, and one of the best chicken tamales we’ve tasted (that’s made even tastier with a dunk in their creamy pink sauce). There are plenty of tables to eat at, but we like to pull up to the bar, where it’s very easy to strike up a conversation with a stranger. And while it definitely looks like you’re dining in a nightclub, weekdays here don’t feel clubby. It’s actually an ideal place to enjoy a quiet, casual weekday meal. Even on weekends, when they may have a live music act straight from DR, the vibe feels more like being at a house party than a club—and you can still get something tasty to eat.
