Morro Castle in Little Havana, Florida – CLOSED

Morro Castle in Little Havana had an iconic building that once housed an ice cream parlor. It was one of the original Friteros in Miami.

If you’re not into the open air type of thing, then this is not the place for you. Morro Castle is located in Little Havana. It’s one of those places you probably drive by and say to yourself, I’m going to stop there one day but never do. It’s not too far from where I live, so I decided to drop in (this Morro Castle is no longer owned by the same person as the one in Hialeah but it is the same family).

There were a couple of people being very loud when I walked in. This was just confirmation to me that I was in Little Havana.

I go to the counter to order, and the two servers were moving so slow I thought that maybe what they needed was some Cuban Coffee. After having spent some time there, now I think what they needed was air conditioning.

I’m also ordering food for my sister and father. I order a few fritas, a “grilled” cheeseburger, papitas fritas (aka french fries), some churros, and a couple of flans.

Now, the frita was very very good, that’s two verys if you’re keeping count at home. The Morro Castle frita comes with raw onions, ketchup, and their homemade tiny potatoes (julienne cut). This frita probably has the most pronounced chorizo flavor of all the fritas in town.

There’s one thing the grilled cheeseburger isn’t, and that’s grilled. It tasted OK and had that processed rubbery American cheese that your intestines will not be able to get rid of for a few weeks (I’m sickly in love with this type of Cheese for reasons I can’t explain). The papitas fritas were the regular suspects. I’ve had them before and they were just fine.

As per my sis, the churros are probably better than La Palma, and I thought so too. The flan was great, it was creamy but it had a hint of coconut flavor.

So if you’re ever in Little Havana, stop by and try their Fritas, grab a Flan and if it’s cold, then plan to wait in line for Churros.

After 55 years in Little Havana, Morro Castle closed its doors in May of 2017.
