Are you traveling to Miami, Florida and looking for top-notch gluten free restaurant recommendations? I've got you covered!
We recently visited Miami, Florida in January 2020. Here's where we ate, and what we ordered!
Boteco Copacabana: When we asked where to get some good local Cuban food, the concierge at our hotel pointed us to Espanola Way, which is a little restaurant village with lots of....ITALIAN food. Luckily we found this awesome Brazilian spot nestled in-between all the pasta. It has a lovely outdoor patio and authentic Brazilian cocktails, grilled meats, and yummy sides!
We Loved: gluten free Linguiça Acebolada (Brazilian Sautéed sausage with onions, served with yuca sticks), gluten freeChurrasco no Espeto (Mixed meat cuts grilled on skewer with onions, mixed red and green peppers), gluten free Fried Yuca, Black Beans, Rice, and Sweet Plantains. Don't forget the gluten free Yuca flour to dip your sausage into! It's heavenly. No Brazilian lunch would be complete without passion fruit caipirinhas!
OLA: This Latin-American restaurant on Collins Ave. in the Gates Hotel has a gorgeous outdoor patio overlooking a small pond. They are known for their ceviche, grilled meats, and homemade gluten free rolls (!!!!) The rolls are insanely good. Like, I won't judge you if you eat 4 of them.
We Loved: The gluten free homemade rolls! They are so worth the hype. The gluten free Salmon Ceviche (Spicy mandarin juice, cucumbers, shallots, chives, cilantro, topped with crispy capers), gluten free Roast Cuban Pork, served with garlic yucca mash, black bean broth, creole style pepper salad, and mustard mojo, and the gluten free de-constructed Key Lime Pie (Key lime custard, toasted meringue, vanilla bean ice cream).
