Located in the heart of Miami Beach is a taqueria crafting authentic tacos and street fare. Taquiza opened a little over 2 years ago and has been serving up delicious homemade tacos like nobody’s business. With a food-truck type feel, enjoying some of the most authentic tacos in Miami is as easy as walking up to the counter and placing your order.
Recommended Taquiza Dishes:
To start, grab yourself one or two of their refreshing house made drinks. Their Agua de Jamaica and Horchata were our favorites and perfect for any day in South Beach.
Next, you absolutely must get some Totopos and also an order of Elote. Their totopos are made from hand torn chunks of their blue corn masa, deep fried… it’s like nothing you’ve ever had before. Crunchy on the outside, tender on the inside, served with tangy homemade guacamole. Elote is Mexican style grilled corn on the cob, slathered with cilantro jalapeño crema, and topped generously with cotija cheese… thank us later.
Finally, the reason Taquiza stands out from the rest is because their tacos are made fresh daily with the highest quality ingredients. From the vegetables, to the cheese, to their meats, and finally their amazing tortillas. Taquiza’s signature blue corn tortillas are milled daily on site and are 100% gluten free.
Furthermore, the classic Al Pastor and the Camaron are both a must. Topped with a grilled pineapple, the Al Pastor has pork and achiote seasoning; the perfect combination of sweet and salty. The Camaron has fresh shrimp, red mole, and slaw; very light and makes for the ideal beach snack.
Their meatless options leave nothing to be desired… you should definitely give the Rajas and the Huitlacoche a try. Personally, we recommend the Rajas but they’re both unique and full of flavor.
What’s even better is that Taquiza is on UberEats. Therefore, you can eat some of the best tacos right from your beach towel! Just open up your UberEats app and place your order! (use code: eats-munchmia for $10 off your first order.)
