Hialeah’s Hub

Hialeah’s 49th Street is part of the history of the Hispanic community. Its streets have been the scene of celebrations, protests, parties, carnival troupes and parades. See how the commercial corridor has evolved.

Hialeah is often associated with Cuban food, but diners can find much more than local fare these days on West 49th Street, where restaurants serve dishes for all tastes, including the most refined palates.

Although more than 75% of its residents are of Cuban origin, this city is home to other Hispanic communities, including Puerto Ricans, Mexicans, Nicaraguans and Hondurans. That has led to restaurants making efforts to cater to customers who speak the same language but whose gastronomic traditions are different.

Hialeah’s 49th Street even has its own hamburger, named after the owners of Trigo Cafe, located at the western end of the commercial corridor.

Trigo Cafe

Since it opened six years ago, Trigo Café has sought to offer the most traditional Cuban food in an innovative way. The wheat shake, which inspired its name, is a puffed wheat shake mixed with milk and sugar, a nostalgic flavor for the Cuban community.

The restaurant will soon expand to become Trigo Tapas & Wine. It offers the typical “arroz a la cubana,” made with rice, fried eggs and sweet plantains as Hialeah Comfort, an ideal dish for brunch.

If you’re looking for a quick meal instead, there’s the 49th Street Burger, served with caramelized onions, cheddar cheese, bacon and a fried egg.

Also on the menu are salads, sandwiches and main dishes of meat or chicken.
