The burger can be found sizzling on the flattop at chef Ortelio Cárdenas El Mago de las Fritas. El Mago’s frita Cubana is a beef-pork blend well-seasoned with paprika, cumin and pepper, then topped with a squirt of ketchup and a tumbleweed of fried shoestring potatoes.
The frita Cubana is packed with Cuban history, and the best version of it is served at El Mago de las Fritas in Miami's Little Havana neighborhood, according to Food + Wine magazine.
