El Rinconcito Latino – Westchester & Beyond…

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in BB Approved, Dade County, Hialeah, Kendall, Visits by Burger Beast, West Kendall, Westchester

Just a few blocks from my parent’s house in Westchester is a Cuban restaurant they frequent, El Rinconcito Latino. There are actually 6 other locations. My first recollection of seeing/hearing about this place was their spot across the street from Leo’s Pizza. My parents eat in or take out from here a couple of times a […]

Manhattan Chicago Pizzeria – Kendall, Florida

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Kendall, Miami-Dade County, Pinecrest, Visits by Burger Beast

I’m not an expert in Pizza much less in “Chicago-style” so you’re not going to get the word “Authentic” out of my mouth since too many people throw that word around without really having extensive knowledge about what they’re discussing when using it. I am however well versed in things that I think taste great and […]

The Fish House – Miami, Florida

The Fish House…..that’s right a seafood place. How did I end up here? It’s a great question so let me explain. Months ago someone mentioned to me on Instagram that there was a seafood spot I needed to check out located in the gray area between Westchester and Kendall that was serving up a Pat […]

You Know What’s Really Good? Tortilla Española from Delicias de España

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Kendall, Miami-Dade County, Visits by Burger Beast

You Know What’s Really Good? La Tortilla Española from Delicious de España. My Mom makes really great breakfast omelettes but it wasn’t until I visited my dad’s mother (La Gallega) in Glendale, California that I tried a Spanish Omelette (Tortilla Española) for the first time. At that point in my life I thought all omelettes […]

A Look At Barley & Wich

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved, Kendall, Miami-Dade County, Visits by Burger Beast

A few things happened to Jorge & Jorgie Ramos’ B&S Gastropub since I was last here in early September. In October, due to issues tied to construction B&S Gastropub could not continue to operate in its current form so the restaurant shut down. At the end of that same week B&S Gastropub competed at Croquetapalooza and […]

Barley – Kendall, Florida

Before we get into the thick of things, there is free valet parking in the building where B&S Gastropub is located. There you go, now you can’t complain about the parking situation. Onward…. Chef Jorgie Ramos runs the kitchen and his father Jorge runs the front of house. You may remember them from their first […]

Pizza Johny’s – Kendall, Florida

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Kendall, Miami-Dade County, Visits by Burger Beast

It’s always great to come across an unexpected surprise. My wife Marcela called to inform me about this new Pizza Shop called Pizza Johny’s (one n not two) that had opened up in the old Slice & Ice spot on Sunset Drive. A friend of ours had just mentioned how much he liked it. Other than […]

Polo Norte and their Cuban Style Pizza

Posted on 6 CommentsPosted in Kendall, Miami-Dade County, Visits by Burger Beast

Most folks think of Polo Norte for 2 things, Ice Cream & Cuban Style Pizza. I’ve never had dessert much less ice cream any of the times I’ve eaten here. Fans of Cuban Style Pizza come here to fulfill their fantasies. The Croquetas here are divine. They are a bit on the large side and […]

Latin House in Kendall, Florida

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in BB Approved, Kendall, Miami-Dade County, Visits by Burger Beast

They’re baaaaaaack! That’s right, Latin House Grill now Latin House is open. It had been a while since I had eaten from LHG since they’ve been working on this project for the last few months. I know the menu by heart and it’s always very difficult when trying to decide what to have. The restaurant […]

BGR Burger Joint – Coral Gables & Kendall, Florida

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Closed, Coral Gables, Kendall, Miami-Dade County, Visits, Visits by Burger Beast

BGR Burger Joint has made a name for itself as the “Best Burger” in every city that it’s been franchised in. It arrives in South Florida and it gets lost amid all the Burger players here. Why? Whoever scouted the locations for BGR Burger Joint did a bad job. The Coral Gables location was originally […]

Sweetness Bake Shop & Cafe – Kendall, Florida

Posted on 7 CommentsPosted in BB Approved, Kendall, Miami-Dade County, Visits by Burger Beast

I stumbled (luckily) upon Sweetness Bake Shop because of a Twitter RT (for the non Twitter folks out there, a re-tweet aka re-post) and started to follow them. A couple days passed and I noticed that they tweeted a photo of some delicious looking cupcakes. I had wanted to visit several times and failed to […]
