El Palacio de los Jugos, of which there are nine in the Miami area, is a combination produce stand and eatery — a truly authentic Cuban institution. Orange, mango, papaya, watermelon, and pineapple juices are squeezed on the spot, and if you want coconut water, an expert will deftly chop one open with a machete and insert a straw. True Cuban food, including exemplary Cuban sandwiches, is served in abundance and at very reasonable prices.
