Le Lambi is a tiny and casual restaurant in Kendall, not far from where I live. The menu is a tribute to Haitian cuisine, bursting with the genuine flavors of the Caribbean.

We started with Marinade de Morue – Cod fritters served with homemade cocktail sauce. Tasting these made the chickens and I hum with delight. They were crispy-brown on the outside, soft, creamy and succulent on the inside, just brimming with the flavor of the sea.

The little one had Chef Yole’s Wings, which were also very delicious. They come with either fried plantains or fries. She chose the fries.

 I had the signature dish: Lambi a la Yole which was conch simmered in a creole sauce. I took one bite and tears of joy almost came to my eyes, the taste reminded me so much of something Lera would cook, back in Grenada. It was simply an explosion of Caribbean flavors and spices, the conch was obviously treated with a a lot of love during the preparation, gently simmered and served with a sauce full of onions and sweet peppers.

Issa had the deep-fried fish and gave me a bite. The fish tasted like if it was seasoned from the inside out, the morsel I tasted was just pure perfection.

The three of us loved this place with a passion. There was only one drawback: the service was a little slow but this was because there was only one person taking orders at the table and on the phone and also serving and being a cashier: she needed some help. This will not deter us from coming back; Le Lambi was a little gem in a little corner of Kendall.

We wish it a long life.
