Ceviche That’s Fresh!

Cholo’s Ceviche & Grill in North Miami is one of those hidden restaurants that surprises me. The food here was very good and fresh. The Ceviche Clasico is their nation’s pride and joy and I believe it. The fish was marinated in “leche de tigre“, which is lime juice and aji (a Peruvian hot pepper). Served with red onions, yams…

Steamed Shrimp Dumplings

These warm and delicious shrimp dumplings are pretty much one of my favorite so far. The savory sauce with enough spicy kick made them so extraordinary. This dish is from Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ in Brickell. Give them a try during happy hour for the best prices on the menu.

Octopus “Naranja Agria”

This wonderful dish was prepared with aji amarillo, papas bravas with Spanish paprika and jicama. A delicious plate that’s original and deliciously prepared. Health Porter is one of the owners of Uvaggio in Coral Gables and he really knows how to make you feel right at home. He has an extraordinary knowledge of wines and the dishes that go well with them. Great…

A Course to Remember.

Got invited to Dinner Lab in Miami and I was very pleased. The menu was from Chef Ryan Haigler who really gave a great show. He prepared a five course meal that was exciting and well presented. His third course was spectacular. The Crab+Mascarpone Crepe was unique and full of flavor. Check out the next Dinner Lab in your area. It’s…

Taste Like Home Goodness!

Have you ever been to a good restaurant that serves amazing food and to top it off, it reminds you of good home cooking! Casa Larios in South Miami is that place every time I visit. From the friendly service to the tasty Cuban cuisine that never disappoints.

Lorenzos on the Beach.

Tucked away on 18th and Collins Avenue adjacent to the Redbury Hotel South Beach is this casual elegant restaurant called Lorenzo. The pickled onions with shaved roasted garlic over a grilled Mahi Mahi was outstanding in flavor and presentation. The bottom of the dish had a pea purée with dabs of cream. Can’t wait to see the…

Better than Potato Chips.

Whenever you go to a Cuban restaurant and don’t know what kind of appetizer to order, try these banana chips called Mariquitas. They come with a mojo sauce that works really well with these golden sweet and crispy treats. You can find them at Little Havana Restaurant in North Miami.
