While the suburb of Tamiami generally goes unnoticed by seasoned travelers and even longtime Miami residents, there's one thing about the community you just CAN'T let fly by-- its food scene!

One of Florida's largest census-designated suburbs, nestled amid a bustling metro Miami, Tamiami is one of Miami's destinations that deserve more credit.

Indeed, it's more than its famous roadway, Tamiami Trail, which connects Tampa and Miami, helping Florida's rapid development significantly

The neighborhood has a distinct offering that not many Miami communities have-- peaceful streets, close to non-existent throngs of beach-going crowds, and a simple Miami lifestyle. 

And did I mention Tamiami has an AWESOME array of restaurants too?

While the food varies from the usual world-class culinary experience that Miami neighborhoods usually have, Tamiami is known to deliver incredible Latin American food spots, including delicious cuisines like Cuban, Colombian, Chilean, Salvadoran, and Mexican!

Oh, and don't forget, the quaint suburb is nearby a few more Miami communities, so food tripping isn't limited to just Tamiami while you're here. 

Get your tastebuds and your tummies ready!

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