It’s worth coming to La Cocina whether or not you’re interested in the very good food from Stephen’s Deli, which is where you’ll find this place, just past the bathrooms. This tiny cocktail bar in Hialeah is a blast all on its own. The drinks are great, you can order food in case you do start craving Reuben croquetas or an excellent burger, and there are these little Miami inside jokes sprinkled in every corner of the room - from the names of the drinks (the Pata Sucia is actually quite good) to the Royal Dansk cookie tins that cover the bar.
