Miami's Best Flan: Versailles, Cuban Guys, Little Havana and More
|"Biggest surprise" flan.|
We're gonna be honest -- Sazón wasn't our first thought when we were trying to compile a list of the ten best flans in Miami. In fact, it wasn't even a thought at all. The only reason we ended up trying one was because a friend said it might be good to see if any on the Beach were worth a mention. We were slapped in the face with surprise when a spoon-full of Sazón's flan met our mouth ($3.95). It was creamy, and sweet, and eggy, and the almibar didn't over power a thing. Best of all, it was another example that the best flans are not always the most expensive.

5. La Carreta
This was another surprise. As the flagship for La Carreta, its Calle Ocho location has seen its fair share of wear and tear. And with 8 locations, including the one in terminal D at MIA, it's almost expected that recipes get watered down, and food loses that special touch. We can't speak for the rest of the menu, but rest assured the flan regular ($3.25) at La Carreta's original location hasn't lost a bit of that magic. Topped with a maraschino cherry, the flan is baked perfectly. Once again, there's a symphony of sweet flavors not unlike what you'd expect from an old-school Cuban restaurant.
