MIA: Current Favorite Dish/Item for Less than $10?

JFarah Jul 9, 2009 02:47 PM

I love fine dining as much as the next guy. However, for a good and inexpensive lunch or dinner I always flock to the same few places. I was hoping to get a good thread going on delicious dishes for under $10 in the Miami area. Please list your favorite dish, the price, and the restaurant you get it at. Thanks for sharing!!

I'll start first...

The Camaronera Sandwich (Fried shrimp sandwich on cuban bread with onions and a spicy sauce) -- $5 -- La Camaronera on Flagler and 19th ave

      Chez Rosie-pretty much everything's under $10 and they also do an under $5 lunch. I had stewed chicken with a big pile of okra (which are in season now) and a ton of rice and beans, like $7. Photos here http://dailycocaine.blogspot.com/2009...

                          Can't wait to check this place out! As a little kid my grandfather used to make us chicken heart skewers. My brother and I would fight over them. Haven't had them in years.
