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. […]
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 […]
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 […]
I do love BBQ. And Dickey’s did not disappoint. The pork and brisket may have been too moist if that’s possible. All three sauces- sweet, hot, regular- were good, really good. As was the brownie I had for dessert. “What could they do better?” I asked myself. Not much.. maybe clear the table […]
ELLA’S Oyster Bar
1615 SW 8th Street. Opening Night Tonight I’m upgrading the blog, wish me luck. I’m going to try for photos in real time. Here at Ella’s Everything was stupendous! Thats the best recommendation you are going to get from me.
109 Burger Joint
And beer. THE BEST MENU
Why I am not a regular here I don’t know. I have eaten here twice, its in the neighborhood, the price is right, the place is comfortable and the food really is very good. A step up Italian eatery with a varied menu…the chicken viola was unique, delicious and there was a big enough portion […]
Hands Down my favorite, even though they don’t have a dessert I love. For the first two years I came here I got the Papparadeli Short Ribs. I had tasted it and knew nothing could compare. Then one night I tried a piece of fish with risotto, then I tried the short rib, then another […]
This had to be one of the most memorable nights ever. We dined in the yard of a lovely house on the miami river, drank rum punch, met fun people and watched a cargo boat being tugged by.
