Back At Molina’s Ranch Restaurant In Hialeah After 20 Years

The FGH kills me every time with her photos from Molina’s Ranch Restaurant in da Hialeah. In fact, it was that picture of the Bistec Artesano from Molina’s that gave me the couple of sleepless nights that caused my visit here. I had not been in Molina’s since it was at its previous location across the street, we’re talking at … Continue reading

Daddy’s Grill is a Miami Food Truck & Cafe in Hialeah

The first thing that caught my eye about Daddy’s Grill’s Menu was the “Discos Voladores” aka Flying Saucers on the menu. I haven’t eaten those since I was a kid. What’s a Disco Volador? It’s a sandwich made on the special contraption below. Daddy’s Grill actually had theirs brought over from Cuba which I guess makes them as authentic as you’re going … Continue reading
