Known to be an inclusive community in the center of South Florida, the charming, quaint city of Oakland Park is an ideal match for the perfect dining experience. 

You can tell from its diverse population!

Located in the geographic center of South Florida, Oakland Park is an award-winning city on the RISE, covering 8.1 square miles, of which 7.5 square miles is land and 0.69 square miles is water

It is nestled in Broward County just north of Fort Lauderdale and sits a short distance from the Atlantic Ocean.

Bisected by the Florida East Coast Railway, which runs parallel to Dixie Highway through the city's downtown, the community is part of the Miami–Fort Lauderdale–West Palm Beach Metropolitan Statistical Area.

With its entire area peppered with residents who hail from Brazil, Haiti, Cuba, Colombia, and Peru-- no doubt makes for an enticing array of international cuisines! 

Whether it's a coffee run, a quick breakfast, heavy lunch, or a lavish dinner for two, Oakland Park's got you! There are laid-back and bougie options too!

There's nothing that you can't find, food-wise, in this up-and-coming city!

Here are the Top 5 Eats to try while you're here. (in no particular order)

At Salimar Ceviche Bar, you'll get a taste of the best dishes of Peru, land, and sea, plus the authenticity that can only come from a native's cooking! 

It's because the restaurant is the story of two Peruvian brothers, Daniel Corzo and Antenor Corzo, that left their native Peru to travel around the world, showing their talent in the kitchen to everyone. 

They have worked in the best restaurants in South America, Europe, and the United States. And now they decided to open their first restaurant in Oakland Park. 

The locals couldn't be so lucky!
