Not JUST a Miami Beach Hostel
Hostelling International Miami Beach offers one of the most unique food and beverage experiences in Miami Beach. Nestled on the ground floor of HI Miami Beach is a gourmet experience of delicate tacos and clean food made from scratch to order! Chef Steve Santana's Taquiza, a pocket-sized Miami Beach taqueria that serves traditional Mexican fare like huitlacoche (a corn fungus), nopales (edible cactus), and squash flowers - on house nixtamalized and pressed tortillas. At Taquiza everything is made inhouse. Heirloom corn is cooked and ground to make fresh tortillas and chips. Nixtamalization is an ancient technique used by the Aztecs in which dried corn is soaked and cooked in an alkaline solution that breaks down the skins, and makes it easier for the body to absorb its nutrients. The ground results, called Nixtamal, is used in everything from pozole to tamales and arepas. To complement the food at Taquiza, we serve a wide variety of beer and wine including local and mexican favorites.
Taquiza combines the delicate palate and tastes of Mexico with a modern flare inspired by the beautiful and fast-paced lifestyle of living and visiting Miami Beach. Such an offering is rare in Miami. Have a seat in a comfortable outside environment filled with patrons, beautiful palm trees and modern architecture.
