A day before Croquetapalooza I dropped in to Munchies Cafe 2. I had last visited their original location a little over year ago after a BB reader mentioned that their Croquetas are a must try. I was torn as to which appetizer to start with so I did the only sensible thing, I ordered the […]

They’ve been doing their thing here for over 30 years. There are no seats, only standing counter space. And you will find a great cross section […]

Los Chamos has been stalking the streets of South Florida for almost 2 and 1/2 years now serving up their Venezuelan comfort food favorites like Empanadas, Arepas and Tequeños.

Chef Jamie DeRosa’s Burger back when he was at Tudor House blew me away. But it wasn’t only the Burger that did that but also the Fried Chicken, the Cuban Sandwich and the Desserts. There is something very special about what he does with food. I wasn’t sure what to think when he announced that […]

You know what’s really good? The Pan con Lechon at Papo Llega y Pon. Papo Llega y Pon is located in the Allapattah part of Miami. I’ve probably driven past this place a few hundred times and never even noticed it. It looks more like an outdoor laundromat than the home of probably one of […]
