Caña Brava is a Nicaraguan fritanga in Little Havana that feels a bit more formal than the other fritangas we’ve been to in Miami. It has a big, wood-accented dining room with Nicaraguan landmarks etched into the mirrored ceiling. They serve solid fritanga staples—carne asada, gallo pinto, and queso frito—but the real attraction is the huge variety of dishes you may not see at other fritangas, like achiote-rubbed pork cutlets, white rice, and rich Nicaraguan refried beans, or a bowl of Indio Viejo. If you just want a few snacks, order the tacos with a generous side of crema or the crunchy tajadas. They even have a selection of homemade sweets, including buñuelos—fried dough balls enriched with cheese and crema that are drowned in caramel syrup.
