There’s a high likelihood of getting lost on the way to this colorful Spanish spot since it’s located on a backstreet along the Miami River you’d never drive down unless you live there. But Jamon Iberico Pata Negra—which is decorated with dramatic paintings of matadors (one of which appears to be fighting a marlin)—is worth hunting down. This place is a tad more expensive than your average casual tapas spot, so brace for that. But the food is very good. Start with the anchovies in vinegar and piquillos peppers filled with codfish. Then move onto one of the broken egg dishes or rices of the house, like the egg-crusted rice with scallops and shrimp. It’s big enough to feed about four people or one-and-a-half hungry dramatic matadors.
