The Best Taco Spot in Miami Beach

When you first glance at the menu, you’re swept away by its simplicity. Once you dive into the ingredients, you’ll find this is not, by any means, your average Taco Shop. Just around the corner from Hi Miami Beach, Taquiza is conveniently located in the fifteen hundred block of Collins Avenue. Voted BEST tacos for 2015 by the Miami New Times, this little jewel not only serves delectable bites, but the ambiance is also perfection. When you walk through the doors your senses are kissed with the fresh scent of Blue Mesa Corn Taco Shells that are made by hand daily, and other fresh ingredients. Your tastebuds will be delighted when you bite into flavorful shells that are filled with joy and fused with ingredients like coffee, chiles, mole, cinnamon, and clove. What makes this more unique, is Steve’s use of varying ingredients such as edible cactus, as well as the tradition of huitlacoche (corn fungus). It's no wonder Taquiza was voted Best!


You can catch a glimpse into the wondrous world of Taquiza by watching owner, Steve Santana’s, interview with Edible South Florida. The video, hosted by Lauren Bernat, discusses many of the restaurant's choice of beverages such as the local  brews from Biscayne Bay. Steve also discusses the tradition of making handmade taco shells with the corn imported directly from Mexico.  

There’s nothing like a day at the beach indulging in one of South Beach’s most desired spots and washing down a gourmet taco with one of the area’s home brewed cold beers.  Try a cold glass of Miami’s Pale Ale concocted by the Biscayne Bay Brewing Company.  A pure delight on a hot Miami day.  Another appreciable fact about this hot spot is, vegetarians can indulge in these delicious eats, too! Tacos can be made to satisfy your needs.

While visiting or swinging through the area, make this your first stop for the Best Taco Spot in Miami Beach “Taquiza”.
