|Up Close with The Frita Dulce|
Maybe it's too early for a frita and you need some Cuban breakfast to start your day, in that case El Rey has you covered with some of the cheapest (and most delicious) breakfast you'll find in the 305. Seriously, $3.75 will buy you two fried eggs, papitas, bacon, Cuban toasts and a cafe con leche. Another breakfast option is the Victoriano breakfast sandwich, named after el rey himself. It's a massive sandwich comprised of two eggs, ham and cheese on Cuban bread, price is $3.75. There are also pan con tortillas listed in the sandwich section of the menu. For those who are unfamiliar, a pan con tortilla is a large omelette topped with papitas and sandwiched in Cuban bread. My go-to is the pan con tortilla de chorizo y queso aka a chorizo omelet sandwich with cheese.

I won't deny that the fact that El Rey De Las Fritas' Hialeah location being so close to home makes my opinion just slightly biased. However, whether I walk into the Hialeah location or the Little Havana location I am always treated like I just walked into my Tia's kitchen. The staff is always welcoming and eager to feed you. Whether you're grabbing a quick bite during your lunch break or having a leisurely breakfast, they always accommodate you and make you feel at home. I recommend this place to any and all tourists who ever approach me about Miami "must eats" and now I'm recommending it to you.
