Little Havana/Calle Ocho Travel Guide

"Eating Little Havana" - A Restaurant & Food Guide

Spotlight On:

Taqueria el Mexicano
Glenn: If you're looking for ice cream in Little Havana and can't find the newly opened Azucar Ice Cream Company, we suggest that you get your eyes checked!

Jorge: Azucar is located in a decidedly can't-miss-location in the heart of little Havana...

Glenn: ...the mega-sized cone that adorns the front of Azucar can be seen a block away, in a downpour!

Raúl: The owner, Suzy Batlle dishes up some great ice cream in all of my favorite Cuban flavors.

Jorge: Sure, you can get many of the standard "American" flavors here -- chocolate, vanilla, rum raisin, strawberry, and pistachio, but you can get those anywhere.

Raúl: When you come to Miami, it's all about going Latin and we suggest you introduce your jaded Midwestern taste buds to some great tropical flavors.

Raúl: Batlle dishes up all of our favorite fruit flavors, including guava, passion fruit, coconut, mamey, mango -- even avocado.

Jorge: Even more enticing are flavors like mantecado, a rich Cuban ice cream that traditionally contains no vanilla; the mandatory dulce de leche, cuatro leches cake, and a plátano maduro that does banana one better with the more complex yet subtle flavor of sweet plantain.

Glenn: One flavor to look for: guarapiña -- a combination of sugar cane juice and pineapple.

Raúl: Even I had never seen that one before!

Glenn: We were introduced to the shop by a friend who brought us the store's signature dish, a combination of mantecado ice cream, galletas de María cookies, strips of guava paste, and chunks of cream cheese. Wow!

Jorge: The ice cream is based on a recipe from Batlle's grandmother from Cuba, but it's the creative flavors that Batlle has concocted that really makes this place shine.

The Details

Azucar Ice Cream Company
1503 SW 8th Street
Miami, Florida 33135
Program the address into your IPhone if technology compels you to, but it's so much easier to look for the giant crazy cone right across the street from the Tower Theater and Domino Park. As if the cone on the façade wasn't enough to get your attention, they occasionally dress someone up in a cone costume (costumed "sidewalk salespeople" are a tradition in Miami) to lure in the frozen cream deprived. On a hot day on La Calle, Azucar is just the ticket.
