Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved, Biscayne Corridor, Miami-Dade County

I’m not sure how long I’ve been telling myself that I’m gonna hit up Doggi’s Arepa Bar but I finally dropped in to their location on Biscayne Blvd. I made sure to seat myself by the window to get some natural light action aka how to have the best looking photos. I was familiar with […]

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 […]

You see that buttered bread in a basket (pictured above), that’s a sign you should be looking for when you arrive at a Cuban restaurant. The bread basket along with a cup of iced water is their way of saying, welcome. And if the bread is nicely toasted and buttered perfectly then you should strap […]

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved Food Trucks, Closed, Food Trucks, Visits by Burger Beast

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. I’ve eaten from their truck here and there over the years but it wasn’t until the last couple of weeks that I could say it’s blossomed […]

Che Grill has been on the streets of South Florida for almost 2 years now. Since day one I’ve been mesmerized by the baked Empanadas they serve, in particular the Spicy Beef.

Sunny Restaurant is located on the corner of a strip mall right near Arbetter’s Hot Dogs in Westchester.

You know what’s really good? Karla Bakery. Back when I leeched off of my parents, I loved awakening  to the smell of Pasteles and fresh Cuban Bread from Karla Bakery on Sunday mornings. There’s nothing better than ripping open that little white box of goodies other than of course stuffing your face with them. Is […]

I recently read about La Camaronera on food for thought‘s Best Cuban Sandwiches in Miami post. He mentioned that the Best Fried Fish Sandwich in town was at La Camaronera. As luck would have it, one of the food trucks happened to park near here a few weeks back. I decided to walk in and […]

Lucarella’s In Oakland Park, Florida

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in Visits by Burger Beast

Marcela and I are lost in Oakland Park, seems I made a wrong turn looking for Jack’s Old Fashion Hamburger House. As we’re driving around, we come across the Tortilleria Mexicana which Marcela has been to before and in the same strip mall is Lucarella’s. I figured we’d come in, get a slice and be […]

I remember the first time I heard of Sergio’s. It was the early ’90s and my sister & her friends would go there late at night on the weekend to get Cafe con Leche (Cuban coffee with steamed milk). I had already made it out in my head to be this place where all these […]
