Looking to serve a top-notch Shabbos dinner or simply to consume more consciously? At these 10 local spots, creative, quality, and kosher cuisine is what’s on the menu. From classic kugel to dairy-free Mexican, here are the top places to eat kosher in Miami.
Trust Miami’s trendiest neighborhood to transform traditional Jewish fare into Insta-worthy cuisine. At Wynwood’s Zak the Baker, the hot spot’s deli and bakery outposts churn out contemporary takes on kosher classics. Diners can expect to enjoy fresh horseradish and herring tartines, a breakfast sandwich featuring corned beef, runny eggs, and Russian dressing, Caprese arepas, and much more.
Who says conscious consuming can’t be fun? Certainly not Serendipity Creamery, the kosher sweets shop dishing out house-made marshmallows, cookie dough, and more in its creative ice cream concoctions. Known for its unexpected flavors, the spot specializes in booze-infused desserts, such as its whiskey-chocolate and moonshine-apricot ice creams, pear-riesling sorbet, and its popular beer floats.
Serving 100% vegan, peanut-free, and gluten-free fare, Bunnie Cakes is a dream come true for sensitive stomachs—and sweet tooths. The spot’s cupcakes, cakes, whoopee pies, and cookies, all of which are certified kosher, come in tropical-inspired flavors such as Key lime, guava, coconut, and dulce de leche.
It should come as no surprise that a melting pot such as Miami is home to a bounty of fusion cuisine. Standing out from the crowd is Shnitz N’ Fritz, a locally beloved food truck serving a fusion of Argentinian fare and Israeli schnitzel, or breaded chicken. Kosher carnivores from around the city flock to the truck to enjoy super-sized portions of breaded chicken fingers, packed pita sandwiches, and more.
At the aptly named Mexico Bravo, the flavorful kosher fare will have Latin food fans cheering. In observance of kosher laws, the culinary team at Mexico Bravo doesn’t mix meat and dairy; they instead employ all-vegan dairy products. Whether you’re plant-based, kosher, or just a fan of Mexican cuisine, you’re sure to savor the spot’s tortilla soup, tequila-sautéed chicken, and stuffed corn tacos.
Operating a boutique food shop, catering business, and delivery service, The Kugel Factory is on its way to achieving its goal to “feed the world kugel, one piece at a time.” In addition to its sweet noodle, salt and pepper, apple, and other kugel varieties, the spot also cooks up home-style kosher food, such as cream sauce herring, olive dip, and chopped liver.
When you imagine beachfront dining, you may not immediately think of traditionally meat-heavy Middle Eastern cuisine; South Beach’s Pita Loca is about to change that. Dishes here range from healthy (or healthy-ish) mezze options, such as fresh-ground hummus and Israeli salad, to mouthwatering meat plates featuring homemade ground beef, spiced and sliced turkey, Morrocan tilapia, and more. Also offering baklava, shakshuka, and Turkish coffee, Pita Loco pairs well with post-meal naps on the beach.
Classic Italian-American cuisine gets the kosher treatment at Lenny’s Pizza. Cooking up spinach calzones, mushroom stromboli, and pies topped with fresh-pressed garlic, broccoli, and more, this casual eatery brings orthodox Italian to Miami Beach.
Not your average sandwich spot, Meatoast manages to reinvent a lunchtime classic. Here, rolls come stuffed with mouthwatering meats, such as schnitzel, shoulder corn beef, and brisket pastrami, topped with homemade sandwich dressings and toasted to perfection. Visit this Miami Beach spot, and banish sad desk lunches for good.
For kosher Miamians, it doesn’t get better than So Heavenly, a takeout and catering business blending classic Jewish cuisine with locally inspired Latin flavors. Sweet plantain kugel, yuca chicken pie, guava challah bread, and more all share space in So Heavenly’s multicultural kitchen.
