NQC Drive-Thru in Miami Lakes

This post goes out to all the people who claim they’re from Miami Lakes but actually live in Hialeah. C’mon, guys, you’re not fooling anyone, lol

If you wake up & say to yourself, “No quiero cocinar (I don’t want to cook),” even if you don’t speak Spanish, I’ve got a great spot for you in Miami Lakes. Yes, it’s called No Quiero Cocinar, or NQC for short.

In a former Farm Stores double drive-thru, you’ll find NQC serving Cuban comfort classics along with dishes like a chorizo & egg bagel sandwich, sweet potato hash, or an avocado chicken wrap.

The menu is impressive, especially when you consider the space. It proves that where there’s a will, there’s a way.

NQC is a breakfast & lunch spot that closes on Sundays, so you will need to plan accordingly.

I’m all about their pan con tortilla with ham & Swiss cheese; X marks the spot (look at the pic).

The croquetas are great, and the smoked ham croquetas are begging to be in a sandwich which is why there’s a croqueta preparada on the menu too.

I’m a Cafe con Leche connoisseur, and their oscuro is 🔥…make sure to savor every sip. I need to just have a cafecito cause I have a feeling it’s probably one of the best in town.

In late 2021, my pops & I ate breakfast at NQC in Miami Lakes for the first time. The majestic breakfast bowl named Marquez Skillet made our morning: a four-egg scramble with Spanish chorizo, mushrooms, onions, chives, patata scoops, & Mr. Mylo’s Mojo Aioli.
