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 […]


One of the most well balanced Ceasar Salads I have ever had. And here is the remnants of the lamb sandwich . At the new SLS Brickell. We enjoyed a really relaxing lunch. It was one of those menus where you really had no idea what you were ordering but the waitress explained each dish […]

Al Carbon

The I first went to Al Carbon it was the best burger around.  Its a STUFFED Burger… with almost anything you might want.  There wasn’t much competition back then, few craft places or pub style burger joints.  Its still really really good, as are the ribs, and deserts.  If you are down Coral Way and […]

Mr. Yum

Mr Yum is one of these little sushi places that seems to have always existed.  Out on 8th street i didn’t like Mr. yum the first few times i was there.  Now, I’m ok with it.  I think  you just need to know how to order and not have high expectations.


Trendy in Wynwood, but good.  The fried rice bowl is to be experienced.  The service so slow, but friendly and the manager happily solved whatever problems were happening.  I would go back . 786-577-0150

Bay Bays

On a nice day, when you have nothing else to do, get in the car and drive up to okeechobee road for fried chicken.  The best i ever had

Lung Yao

8th Street about 22nd av?  I love it.  But come prepared.  There is often a wait for a seat in this tiny open kitchen Thai place.  The food is worth it but then you have to decide if you can live by the rules.  Mainly, order once and dont try to add on.  You would […]

La Cameronera

When I first started coming here it was standing room only.  Get a fried fish sandwich or my favorite the fried seafood in chili sauce.   My dad liked the oysters and its just a great place to go if you haven’t been.

Spring Chicken

Is it ok to say Popeyes is better, so is kentucky fried.  Im not even sure that the sides here are that good.  Know the place always feels dirty but its popular because there isnt anything else like it.
