A friend of mine recommended Finka Table & Tap, it looked good, but I thought that it was far away from home. When I found out that it was less than fifteen minutes away from where I live, there was no time to waste; we had to run to this restaurant and try the appetizing offerings on the menu.
Chef Eileen Andrade created Finka Table & Tap. She thought that Kendall needed something different and took it upon herself to put together a chic and unique restaurant in the area. Chef Andrade fused Cuban, Korean and Peruvian cuisines (her three favorites), and created a menu that is both familiar, unusual, fascinating, and always delicious. The bar offers impressive and refreshing cocktails, and craft beers on tap.
We went there on two occasions, so we sampled a lot of dishes, twelve, to be precise, and we were enchanted with all of them.
