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 […]

Normally I’m the one driving which makes it difficult to scope out new spots to stop & eat at. Luckily, Chunktronics was driving which meant I could sit back and enjoy the ride around Westchester. Then all of sudden I spotted out of the corner of my eye a restaurant I had never seen or […]

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

All I had ever heard about Bru’s Room was how great their Wings were. A few years back I tried them at a Food Truck event in Broward where they had a Food Trailer. I never really had the inkling to drive up to the 954 to check out the entire menu however I was […]

I grew up eating at the IHOP with my grandfather that was in the same spot where La Brasa Rotiserrie & Grill is now located. The building looks totally different inside but there’s no denying by looking at the structure what it once was. After reminiscing a bit with Chunktronics about it we then get […]

A few weeks ago I came across Night Owl Cookie Company online and I thought what a great idea. I figured I would wait for the right opportunity to order from them. Last night my wife Marcela was out with our friend Yislin at the Depeche Mode concert which left me alone at home with […]

La Fiesta Mexicana in Westchester, Florida – CLOSED

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

Folks are always talking about the lack of “Authentic” Mexican restaurants in South Florida but they must be looking in the wrong places. I seem to run into them all over the place. Even the bad authentic places are better than the brightly lit Tex-Mex “cantinas” chains all over Miami. How authentic is La Fiesta […]

In South Florida if you want to hit up an indie Donut shop you would have needed to either drive way South to Mandarin Doughnuts (which is now closed) or Dandee Doughnuts (in Hollywood & Pompano). Good news for you donut-o-holics, Mojo Donuts just opened in Pembroke Pines with the type of Donuts that will […]

A little over 10 years ago a friend of mine was always talking about this place he loved to have lunch at in Kendall (107th & Kendall Drive) called Chicken Kitchen. I lived a couple of blocks from there but when he mentioned what exactly was on their menu I didn’t think much of it, […]
