Masa Craft Kitchen’s (10400 NW 33rd St #150, Doral) owners are good friends of mine. Nayra was a customer at my Oh, The Horror DVD Shoppe while Los and I connected over our mutual love of old-school wrestling.
Los was a long-time employee of MIA Beer Company which is where I met him before they took over the kitchen. Speaking of MIA Beer Co, Los and Nayra were married at MIA Beer Company, which Marcela and I attended.
Now that I’ve got that out of the way, on to the food talk!
We usually hit Masa Craft for their nachos, burgers, and croquetas. We’re also known to dabble in the wings, tacos, and a soft pretzel from time to time.
Who Does What at Masa Craft Kitchen?
How did they get involved in the turbulent croqueta world and win at Croqueta Palooza? Nayra’s (she’s Filipino & Spanish) family owns the Spanish restaurant Los Gallegos on Bird Road. She brings credibility to their fried spheres.
You know I’m always about the ham croqueta but damn it, that mushroom veggie croqueta is a close second.
Los comes with a strong hand in the fresh beef burger game. My Boy Blue features candied bacon, caramelized onions, blue cheese crumbles, and roasted garlic aioli. MBB might sound very intense, but that’s cause it is. He’s also freakin’ delicious.
The burger to get is the McLos, a double-deck hamburger. It comes with shredded lettuce, and I happily ate it. I’m not sure what exactly came over me since I’m so anti-lettuce. American cheese, onions, special sauce, and pickles rounded out the rest of the sandwich.
One last food shoutout to their nachos, available with bistek adobo, citrus grilled chicken, mushrooms adobo, and pulled pork. They come layered with black beans, housemade queso sauce, tomatoes, red onions, jalapeños, sriracha aioli, cotija cheese & cilantro on freshly fried tortilla chips.
