La Santa Taqueria is an up-and-coming Mexican eatery, which, by all means, is not your average taco joint. After years of traveling and working in top-rated restaurants throughout Mexico and the US, chef Omar Montero brings an authentic taco project to Miami. La Santa started in 2017 with several food trucks, which quickly earned a place in the heart of Miami’s locals and tourists alike. Now the first brick-and-mortar is gaining immediate attention with genuine Mexican street fare in an uplifted dining atmosphere at an honest price. The menu at La Santa includes the most wanted Mexican street eats — tacos, quesadillas, fresh seafood tostadas, and delicious homemade sauces to accompany the meal. Guest favorite tacos include Al Pastor, Bistec y Queso, Carnitas, Baja Shrimp, and Tacos de Pulpo, as well as several delectable vegetarian and vegan options. For drinks, indulge in colorful concoctions of Mezcal and Tequila mixed with the freshest tropical fruits and aromatics. The interior is colorful, chic, and artisanal, bringing the warmest Mexican mood. Chef Montero not only pays tribute to the food, but also to the rich culture, with imported hand-built dishes by Oaxacan craftsmen, Michoacan hand-carved hearts, and a tribute mural to Las Soldaderas, the women who fought during the Mexican Revolution. It is the type of Mexican taco joint Miami has been craving for all along. 201 NE 82nd St. Miami, FL 33138; (305) 906-1149, lasantataqueria.comTues – Sun 12:00 -10:00 p.m.
