Delicious Jamaican Cuisine At Island Restaurant in the Hammocks, Miami

Island Restaurant is a little gem of an eatery that is close to where we live. I have been going there for years but never even thought about writing about it – the food was too familiar, not exotic enough. It was time to pay some more attention to Caribbean cuisine. The food served here […]

Barley – An American Brasserie In Downtown Dadeland, Miami

Barley is a restaurant that has been on my radar for a while. The reason it took so long to visit is that it is open mainly for dinner, at 5:00 pm, and I am primarily a lunch person. With the time change, came the light, so why not have an early dinner? The inside […]

Harry’s Pizzeria in Downtown Dadeland, Miami

September was not an easy month. Between Hurricane Issa and Hurricane Irma, everything seemed to be upside down. It was time to get back in the groove, relax, and have some pizza. The reason we went to Harry’s Pizzeria was that there was outside seating and the day was cool enough to sit outdoors. It […]

Indian cuisine is one of my favorites, so when my mother told me about Ghee Indian Kitchen, we could not wait to pay a visit. I had to break my “lunch rule” and go for dinner as they open at 5 pm except for Sundays when they open for Brunch at noon. The restaurant is […]

We visited Aromas Del Perú again to have a quick lunch, but this time it was not only about the food – I needed a safe place to play. The staff at this restaurant knows me and are aware that I am always taking pictures of their food. This time though, I was dabbling in […]
