It’s been well over 5 years since I posted anything on the Burger Beast blog about my favorite Mexican place, Mi Rinconcito Mexicano in Little Havana. My wife’s Mexican born friend swears by the food here and well, so do we. We eat here at least once a month. I’ve never had a bad meal in the over 100 times I’ve visited. Mi Rinconcito Mexicano is the “Shit” for lack of a better word and/or my limited vocabulary.
I’m not about to bore with what this dish is and what that dish is, you can check out Wikipedia for that. I don’t eat Tacos here but they’re still very good, Jacalito is my spot for Tacos in case you were wondering.
If it’s the weekend you need to order a Tamale but they’re only available in limited quantities and by early afternoon they’re sold out. Most importantly if Cochinita Pibil is on the daily specials board just go ahead and order that beauty. If you’re a first-timer, Combinacion #3 is the dish to get and share or you can hog it up by yourself. It’s up to you. It’s got a great variety of what Mi Rinconcito Mexicano is about.
In the back of Mi Rinconcito Mexicano is La Migaja Mexican Bakery. You might possibly overlook its existence but there is no way you can ignore the intoxicating smells emanating from there.
During the Mexican Holiday El Dia de los Muertos, they serve up Sugar Skulls, Pan de Muerto and all that good jazz.
If they’ve got the Pan de Elote (Corn Pie) then it’s a must and it goes perfectly with Coffee. I’ll be honest, everything is pretty good. I always take something to go from La Migaja, always.
