THE BAO

no soup dumplings until after 5 pm So we got finger bao along with scallion pancake with beef and string beans. The beans were great. The pancakes good. The dumplings flavorless We spent most of lunch picking places where we can hopefully grab a baguette

WALTER’s

OK, i’ll tell you what it is… first let me say that the country fried steak and fish and fried shrimp were as good as we had hoped.. sadly, dessert was not tempting until our lovely server mentioned the cook could throw a blueberry muffin on the grill and serve it up with ice cream.. […]

MESA MAR

On Giralda, tonight we brought the dog and sat outside at Mesa Mar.  Bug city.  I don’t recommend the outdoor seating at this time of year but I loved this place.  It has everything it takes to be a new favorite. Great food, including a magnificent Chocolate Mousse.  we ate off the Miami Spice Menu. […]

PEKING DUCK HOUSE

28 Mott Street. Chinatown The Original. What an amazing treat. Not only ws the duck out of this word but we had good dumplings and string beans from heaven.

A NEW FAVORITE

AROMAS DEL PERU, how have we waited so long to try you. Pisco Sours, Fried corn with green sauce, a fish fry, and the most delectable piece of Corvina – cooked and spiced to perfection. Paper napkins would be my only hesitation… but those of you who know me know I have developed the habit […]

No Name Chinese

in south miami and i won’t be going back.  With a terribly limited menu and an aftertaste to most of the dishes that I found distasteful this overpriced chinese restaurant is not making it to the top 25.  A limited menu, a pretty, well designed place which has so much potential fell flat.

SHERWOODS

OMG.   OMG.    OMG. And it only gets better. When we pulled up I thought, looking at the neighborhood, that even I might not want to get out of the car.  But this was wonderful.  Perfect in every way.  Cloth napkins, salt on the table, a huge wheel of Parmesian cheese with honey and bread […]

Tabernia de Ignacio

I love Wednesday nights. I never know what might happen or where we might end up. Tonight we were stuck up in Hialeah and Todd had selected this nearby place which he passes regularly, a little Spanish place that we really enjoyed. The food was superb. We both had fish and I had a garlic […]

You can get MONKEY BREAD in south miami

I am loving the Madruga Bakery.  The picture above is not the monkey bread.  It is a small bun of cinnamony knots of sweetness that was devoured before I even thought to take a photo.  But the bakery is lovely, conveniently located in South Miami behind the publix.  They have a limited lunch menu.. its […]

Ms. Cheezeous

I love my mom and we loved the backyard at Ms. Cheesious (near the 79th Street Causeway). They have opened a gables location.. I haven’t been.. but when I go, I’m going to save room for the s’mores dessert.
