ITO Mojitos & Cafecitos – Miami Beach (North), Florida

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in BB Approved, Miami Beach, Miami-Dade County, North Beach, Visits by Burger Beast

ITO is located at the bottom of a hotel in the North part of Miami Beach. It has a parking area separating it from the Beach but this is the part of Miami Beach that I like, not filled with sunburned tourists. I take a seat at one of the outdoor tables and without even […]

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 […]

I’ve been waiting for Doce Provisions to open. Justin Sherrer and his wife Lisetty Llampalla have come up with a really great comfort food menu that’s not dumbed down for the masses. I met Justin a few years back at his regular gig, Chef at Cinebistro while Lisetty’s background includes working under Ralph Pagano for a […]

Just a little over 2 and a half years ago I wrote about Chef Alberto Cabrera and his just opened Bread + Butter Counter in Coral Gables. This past December I told you about his new sandwich concept in Little Havana called Little Bread which seemed to take the parts that worked best at B+B 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 […]

Sandy’s Cuban Cafe – Naples, Florida

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Gulfcoast Florida, Naples, Visits by Burger Beast

Every summer my family rents a home in Marco Island for a week. At some point, normally early on I get impatient and go for a drive through Naples. A year ago I drove by Sandy’s Cuban Cafe with plans to hit it up but it was closed for the day by the time I […]

Little Bread – Little Havana, Florida – CLOSED

Chef Alberto Cabrera just opened up Little Bread in Little Havana. This comes just a couple of months shy of Bread + Butter Counter‘s 2 year anniversary, B+B is his other restaurant. Sandwiches are more my speed and that’s what Little Bread is all about. The Sandwiches at Little Bread are serious business, just take the Pulpeta (without […]

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 […]

Munchies Cafe 2 – West Kendall, Florida

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 […]

Chico’s in Hialeah, Florida – Open 24 Hours

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

Chico’s has been serving Hialeah crowds for almost 40 years now. It never closes, yes it’s open 24 hours a day. It can be best described as a Cuban Diner. It’s currently going through a renovation and everything probably looks better than they year it opened. Many years ago I worked at Best Buy in […]
