La Camaronera

There's some sensation of eggy richness, but it definitely doesn't taste like chicken.

In Cuba and in Miami's Little Havana, huevas fritas ($7), literally "fried eggs," are a chance product supplied by female fish. At La Camaronera, whose source is the abundant mahi-mahi, an oblong that resembles this egg mass from a cod is sliced into tater-tot-sized rounds and deep-fried. The insides remain soft, granular rather than gooey.

Unlike tater tots, these huevas fritas weren't addictively salty. They had a sneaky astringency that parched my mouth before I knew it, and no combination of fresh-squeezed lime and fish-counter sauces seasoned them quite to my taste. You might try splitting an order with a friend, but you'll probably also want something fried, for yourself, from the fleshier parts of the fish.

Previously: an oyster cocktail (small, currently $4.25), dressed by me with lime juice, salt, and hot sauce; the neon namesake of this "seafood joint & fish market."
