Real deal Cuban cuisine for affordable prices make this one of the most popular Cuban eateries in Miami South Beach, an institution that first opened in 1962. The décor has barely changed since then, giving the feel of a low-key 70s diner with wood-panelled walls, orange bar stools and a long Formica bar which serves as a backdrop for the colorful local crowd. Legions of loyal local fans range from neighborhood politicos to hungry post-clubbing hipsters, who all flock to Puerto Sagua for the hearty Cuban flavours of seafood paella, grilled lobsters, fried plantains, marinated kingfish, and a hearty fish soup abrim with generous chunks of grouper. Puerto Sagua’s shrimp dishes are the signature here, including a tangy shrimp in garlic sauce. Perfectly encrusted empadas and smooth, spicy potato balls are some other savory favorites, as is the roast chicken with rice and black beans; and all taste great washed down with a Cuban Tropical beer. Take-out is available, so for an impromptu picnic you can walk to the beachfront Lummus Park and enjoy your Cuban feast while taking in the sunset over the shimmering Atlantic ocean.
