Nestled between Miami and Fort Lauderdale is a town that many people confuse with its more famous namesake in California. Most of Florida’s Hollywood residents probably like it that way. It keeps the historic city under-the-hype radar, which helps to maintain its funky, colorful, and small-town vibe that has helped it earn it the nickname "Hollyweird."
Amid its 1920s architecture and tree-shaded streets, the town is home to a melting pot of cultures with a dash of old-school Americana that makes for perhaps one of South Florida’s most interesting dining scenes. Whether you are savoring Korean food in a strip mall, scooping up melted raclette cheese in a quaint downtown, or exploring the flavors of Armenia while watching the waves crash, Hollywood definitely offers some diverse eats. And since it's where I-95 and the Turnpike practically kiss, it’s easy to get here from virtually anywhere.
Below are 14 of Hollywood’s more original culinary destinations listed in alphabetical order. See a favorite missing? Or a newcomer that absolutely needs to be on our radar? Hit the tipline, the comments, or in the forums to make your case.
