Cool Off With a Frozen Treat at La Michoacana Paleteria Ice Cream
Stuff everything you love about Mexican food into one tiny storefront, and you have La Michoacana. The brightly colored building draws you in with promises of paletas (popsicles) and ice cream, but this small-but-mighty space has your other savory favorites as well. Meaty tacos, gooey quesadillas, or hearty tortas are a great place to start your eating adventure, all washed down by a Mexican Coca-Cola. Then it’s onto the sweets. Choose creamy slow-churned ice cream or fresh paletas in flavors like tamarind, tequila, or lime elote. You simply can’t find options like that in most places. And the prices? That’s where you’ll really be amazed. For such large portioned, well-prepared food and sweet treats with exotic and fresh flavors, the prices are unbelievably low.
Find La Michoacana in East Little Havana, at the intersection of 1st Street and 11th Avenue. The storefront opens daily at 9 a.m., just in time to cool off at the beginning of a hot Miami day.
