Japanese Peruvian fusion restaurants are a dime a dozen in Miami these days, and with good reason. Peruvian food has a lot of Japanese influences. I had been eyeing Sokai for a while, and even walked in once to take a look at their menu and felt my jaw drop at their prices. Still, I
I’m not sure how it works in other parts of the country, but Miami has a penchant for hiding snazzy little restaurants in place where you would least expect them to be. That’s where Olivos comes in. It’s a small Argentinian-fusion type restaurant located in a shopping plaza that contains one a very poorly organized grocery
Super Arepa, located around Kendale Lakes, is a counter-service joint that serves Venezuelan-style casual fare. As the name implies, their signature offering is the Super Arepa, an arepa (you remember what an arepa is, don’t you?) stuffed with your choice of meat, pico de gallo, grated cheese and special house sauce.

It’s been a while since the food truck craze took off in South Florida. Yet, I haven’t exactly visited very many of them myself. That is kind of a shame, considering the massive amounts of comfort food that these trucks promise. As a food blogger, it was a big failure on my part to ignore
Coral Gables Restaurant Week (CGRW), like Miami Spice, is something that I look forward to every year.

Have you ever let a friend talk you into giving an ex a second chance? No? Good then. I have a similar perspective on restaurants. If you burned me once, I’m not likely to pay you a second visit. Unfortunately, exceptions must sometimes be made. Like, when a close friend that you have known since
The quest for awesome Peruvian food in Miami continues. This time, I ventured out to MPP Brickell. Their parent restaurant, Mi Propiedad Privada, has been in business in Lima, Peru for 12 years. They have a pretty solid reputation, so we’ll see how they measure up.
