King's Ice Cream

1831 SW 8th St.
Miami, FL, 33135, United States
TEL: (305) 643-1842

Not much has changed since King’s opened for business back in the mid 1990’s, and though that isn’t necessarily a positive for the shop’s interior (think neon signs, dingy glass windows, and amateur photos of menu items), it doesn’t stop Little Havana locals from frequenting the ice cream parlor. Besides old Havana flavors like guanábana and mamey, both tropical fruits native to Central America, this strip mall eatery is also known for its homemade churros. Try an order of six served hot with sugar, chocolate, dulce de leche (sweet caramelized milk), and guava.

Insider Tip:

Before visiting King’s, enjoy lunch at the next-door restaurant, El Rey de las Fritas. This popular café serves authentic fritas cubanas, or traditional Cuban hamburgers.
