La Palma is a Cuban restaurant where you can find things like masitas de puerco (fried pork), ropa vieja, discos voladores, and more classic staples. But a lot of people also come here when it’s cold outside (Miami cold, at least) to order churros and thick hot chocolate. It’s a pretty big tradition at this point, and lines are huge on very cold days. It’s a lot of effort just to dip some tasty churros into a little cup of hot chocolate - but we don’t get many chances to enjoy “winter.”
