There’s only one way to tell when someone’s from Miami. It’s not by the way they talk — with 65 percent of the population coming from all over Latin America, this would be an impossible test. It’s not by the way they dress — again, way too diverse.
But take a look at the things they eat, and it becomes instantly clear that they hail from the one-of-a-kind city that rests on the tip of South Florida.
You know you’ve got a Miamian in front of you when they eat a smoothie for breakfast, chicharrones for lunch, stone crabs for dinner and take down more cafesitos than you can count.
Being bred in this city means you’ve lived the perfect melting pot of Latin cuisines with South Florida ocean living. It’s strange, but only in the best of ways. If you’re from this unique town from the South, we’re willing to bet that you — and only you — can truly understand the food truths we speak about.
They grow for free in your backyard. Or in your neighbor’s. Or at your employer’s house. Or your cousin’s. Or your abuelito’s. And if you don’t have anyone in your life to give you mangos and avocados, you can buy them 6 for a dollar on the side of the road, out of the trunk of someone’s car. Never, ever at the grocery store.
