With its many locations, El Palacio de los Jugos is hispanic food at its purest form. At all its locations, the food tastes as if your hispanic grandmother has made it! It is popular not only for the locals, but it is a very tourist driven eatery because of all its hispanic food choices. This is one place everyone should visit not only for the food but for the exotic culture surrounding it.

‘This is one of my favorite places to eat, I really enjoy the pork and the juices they have to offer. It’s really easy to get to and you’re served quickly so it is a great place to stop when you’re in a hurry and just want to eat,” freshman Andres Hurtado said.

Makoto is very well known for its fresh sushi.

Even though it is not a restaurant with a lot of food choices,  Panther Coffee is a local favorite because of its signature coffee. Since opening its doors in the heart of Wynwood in 2011, Panther Coffee is the ultimate stop. Here, you can even call ahead and plan to host an informal cupping event which teaches how to identify flavors of certain coffees. This spot may not be the most diverse, but its artsy atmosphere makes it a local and tourist favorite.

“This place is so great, both its atmosphere and coffee. I love the Wynwood location and the sense of creativity that surrounds it. It’s always a great time when my friends and I get together for a cup of coffee here,” senior Julene Valmana said.
