News about Alberto Cabrera’s (formerly of the Local in the Gables) new concept restaurant Frita Shop was outed by my bud SteveBM a month ago. The 1st Frita Shop will be opening in a former Farm Stores location in Kendall near Havana Harry’s in a few months.
Frita Shop made its “unofficial” debut at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival’s Grand Tasting Village event on Saturday afternoon. Their Kimchee Frita (Kimchee, Sriracha Ketchup, Cilantro, Onion on Potato Bun) was handed out to the masses, more than half of which probably have no clue what a Frita is.
I did not attend the Grand Tasting but my wife brought back a flyer Frita Shop was handing out plus she snapped a couple of pictures of their “station” and the actual Kimchee Frita.
Not much info of note has been released other than yes, there will be Fritas as well as liquid nitrogen shakes (I’ll go out on a limb and guess Mamey & Mantecado). I’ll keep you posted as the meat data aka la carne trickles in.
