Pilo’s Street Tacos: A Brickell Gem

Last month, we spoiled ourselves with tacos in San Diego. It seemed like a good decision at the time, but trying our favorite Mexican dish over on the West Coast made us realize what we were missing over here in Miami.

But a few recent visits to Olla opened our eyes to cuisine beyond tortillas and melted cheese.
