Milanezza Kitchen Bar and Market in Key Biscayne

You never know what you’re going to get when you accept suggestions for dining out. The pictures you find online may not do the food justice.

However, in the case of Milanezza Kitchen and Bar Market in Key Biscayne, it’s the opposite cause everything is better than it looks, if you can believe that.

If I were alone with Marcela, I would not have been able to try more than one starter. Luckily, John was with us, which allowed me a little leeway with the ordering.

We’re in South Florida, so starting with croquetas is the only logical thing to do. Each order brings three prosciutto and three cheese (parmesan, provolone, mozzarella) croquette orbs with a cognac-infused marinara sauce. It’s a tough call whether to roll the croquetas in the marinara sauce between bites or use a spoon to slurp it up. It’s for you to decide.

The simplicity of a well-made choripan sandwich can not be understated. You need a great Argentine chorizo bombon sausage, crusty bread, and a flavorful chimichurri sauce; that’s it!

Sharing Milanezza Kitchen‘s three to four-biter choripan could be shared, but don’t do it. Be greedy.

Another favorite of mine is provoleta, which is melted provolone cheese with olive oil and spices. Once the server placed the sizzling cast iron skillet on the table, I lost all self-control.

Marcela is not a big fan of cheese, and John took one bite and said it was all mine. I kept it at the table the entire as I snacked on it in between bites of everything else. So, yes, you need this in your life.

Empanadas Talk

Probably the best way to gauge the caliber of an Argentinian restaurant you’re at is by sampling their empanadas. Empanadas can make or break an Argentinian restaurant‘s reputation.

Milanezza Kitchen offers five varieties: beef, chicken, ham and cheese, spinach and cheese, and tuna. These beauties are baked in a brick oven.

Since I was leading the charge, one ham & cheese and one beef were the chosen. According to the menu, the beef is made of hand-cut premium angus beef. It was our favorite of the two.

I’m usually a ham and cheese guy, but I’m not a mozzarella and ham kind of guy. Was it good? Yes, but I’m still team beef at Milanezza Kitchen.

The minute you see a bright red or green vegetable, you should know that it was Marcela‘s meal. Don’t get me wrong; I’m a Lomo Saltado fan, but not when milanesas are waiting for me.

So, Lomo Saltado is sautéed beef with tomatoes, red onions, cilantro, white wine garlic soy sauce served with white rice and french fries. I’m all about dishes with double starches, while Marcela loves the tomato and onions mixed with smaller portions of beef.

I forked a piece of beef with onion, a tomato, and some rice. Now, that was a tasty bite.

At last, the milanesas are here! If you’re a Schnitzel fan, you will love them. I mean, who doesn’t love breaded cutlets pounded thin with toppings? If the answer is not you, then click here.

Milanezza Kitchen milanesas are available with angus beef, bone-in pork chop, bone-in veal chop, chicken breast, or eggplant. They recommend deep-frying, but an oven-baked option takes at least 25 minutes more. We chose deep-fried chicken for both.

Milanezza Celia is served with fresh mozzarella slices, cherry tomatoes, and basil leaves with olive oil and balsamic glaze drizzles. It tasted great, but it’s not my style. I don’t like cold on hot food.

My choice was the D’Artagnan Milanezza with mozzarella, provolone, and cheddar cheese. This decision was my first and only rookie move today. I love cheese, but it was a little one-note. I knew that when ordering.

It should have been the Margaret Milanezza with fresh tomato sauce, mozzarella, and basil. A sauce of some sort would have added much-needed depth to the flavor of the D’Artagnan Milanezza.

Again, that was my fault, but at least I asked for a side of the roasted wild mushrooms, which helped. The most important takeaway should be that the milanesas themselves are delicious, but choose your toppings wisely.

Yes, Dessert

Marcela and John made sure we made it to dessert. While they enjoyed the Volcan de Nutella (chocolate lava cake with Nutella), I finished up the provoleta with some espresso.

I’m not sure exactly when my next trek to Key Biscayne will be, but I need to figure out how I can work a Milanezza Kitchen milanesa into the equation.
