Miami's Best Flan: Versailles, Cuban Guys, Little Havana and More

8. Casa Lario's
Casa Lario's was our pick for Best Flan this year. But since these top ten lists are designed to give you alternatives, we chose someone else to be number 1. Flan at Casa Lario's, though, is still on point ($4.25). There's a predominantly burnt almibar, which can be a little overwhelming if you're not into caramelized sugar. We are, so it was perfect. While the texture is a little more gelatinous than we like, the sweet and creamy flavor over-powers the minor downfall.

7. Little Havana
For 15 years, we grew up eating at Little Havana almost once a week. If there's anything the place offers, it's consistency. But it also offers a great flan ($3.49). While this one is slightly sweeter than we'd normally prefer, the texture is damn near perfect. The soft, creamy, supple custard swims in syrup, and nearly does the butterfly stroke on your palate. It has a great balance of vanilla and caramelized sugar flavors, and even a hint of cinnamon.
