Hailed as one of Miami's choice, up-and-coming areas, whether it be for tourism or owning a home in Magic City, the Upper East Side, or MiMo-- short for Miami Modern-- is another top spot for eclectic cuisines in the city.

Apart from its perfect location with wide, tree-lined boulevards, thousands of mature canopy trees, tropical vegetation, abundant bird, marine, and aquatic life, acres of public parks, and sweeping Biscayne Bay and Miami Beach water views, Upper East Side's eclectic community translates into its food scene-- it's as well-rounded and diverse as can be!

In fact, the entire stretch of Biscayne Boulevard between NE 50th street and NE 70th street, internationally renowned for its unique mid-century modern style architecture, is home to many old buildings that have been lovingly restored to their old glory to house some of Miami's best restaurants

But we're not just talking about run-of-the-mill choices. Here, dining establishments represent a significant mix of all kinds of cuisines.

Think Italian, Indian, French, Japanese, New American, Mexican, and Mediterranean dishes, etc., and a generous lineup of diners that serve classic and hearty American staples such as grilled cheese sandwiches, hamburgers, and chicken strips.

A mini-version of Miami's melting pot of culinary cultures, if I may say so myself.

If good food is something that tickles your fancy, read on and get insider tips for the best-ever dining experience yet!

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

Offering an extensive menu of shareable plates that capture the soulfulness and passion behind precious family-rooted recipes, Phuc Yea is spearheaded by its owners, chef Cesar Zapata and his partner Aniece Meinhold, who have found a permanent home in MiMo.

Inspired by their Vietnamese heritage and third Coast culinary roots, the two have come up with Phuc Yea, which started off as one of Miami's first dining pop-ups and has grown into one of the neighborhood's go-to for delicious Vietnamese traditional fare AND uniquely Texan specialties that fuse Cajun and Vietnamese flavors.

At Phuc Yea, guests are invited to marvel at Biscayne's blossoming Mimo District, embrace 90's hip-hop and street-cool music, and enjoy Cesar's version of Viet- Cajun cuisine - a lively mash-up of fresh and colorful Vietnamese ingredients pumped up with spicy, bold Cajun flavors.
