I remember the first time I heard of Sergio’s. It was the early ’90s and my sister & her friends would go there late at night on the weekend to get Cafe con Leche (Cuban coffee with steamed milk). I had already made it out in my head to be this place where all these hipster kids would hang late and talk about how bad they had it but I was the one who had it wrong. I ate there with her one time and I was hooked.
Sergio’s is a restaurant that serves Cuban comfort food and in rather generous portions. There are 2 reasons I eat here: the Croquetas and the Pan con Tortilla (Omelette Sandwich with Onions, Ham and Swiss Cheese).
If you’re into Croquetas, these are one of my favorites in Miami. The Pan con Tortilla is massive and enough to share. This is as good of an Omelette Sandwich as you’re ever gonna have.
There is a Frita on Sergio’s menu and it’s a bit of a let down. It pains me to say that because I love this place. All the right toppings were there: Onions, Ketchup and wait a second….canned Potato Sticks. Yeah, that’s a big no-no, either you go the fresh julienne potatoes route or go home. It just did not add up to a good Frita. I just didn’t like the seasoning of the meat either. It could be a good thing though which means I’ll always get the Pan con Tortilla whenever I eat there.
And don’t forget to get a shot of Cuban coffee on your way out.
