Chef Creole is a local chain of super casual Haitian spots with a diehard fan base. And like many beloved Miami spots, this place’s popularity has nothing to do with ambiance or service. Instead, it’s all about the food. It’s hard to go wrong with anything on the menu, but the conch stew and conch fritters, along with the stewed oxtails and whole fried fish, are always good. They have five locations around town, but we like the one in Little Haiti best because the line always moves fast and you can also call in your order ahead of time.
