Easy to miss, Palmar Cafeteria is in an industrial area of Hialeah across the street from a popular Spanish news studio. The cafe does breakfast and lunch, serving up some of the best Cuban food in the area. But let’s talk beans for a moment. Beans are a staple in Cuban cuisine and it’s surprisingly hard to find really good beans in Miami. However, the beans at Palmar are not just really good, they’re f*cking great. The only bad thing about these beans is that from now on you’re gonna have to lie to your abuela about her beans being the best. They offer black or red daily, and alternate a special “potage,” or bean stew. The masas de puerco are exceptional too, they’re cooked with mojo until tender then fried up to order. Get these with a side of black beans, rice, and platanos maduros.
