Downtown Miami Restaurant: Elia Gourmet

Hi! It’s a brand new week, and I am happy to share a new restaurant to add to your list. Elia Gourmet is a casual cafe and restaurant located in Downtown Miami and offers fresh, made-from-scratch Mediterranean food.  Elia Gourmet prides itself in only serving fresh ingredients that are delivered daily. As a result, they  do not have a microwave, or freezer in the kitchen!

Jamaica Kitchen Restaurant, Miami

My Mom is Jamaican, so I grew up eating Jamaican food. Curry Goat, curry chicken, rice and peas, Jamaican patties…you get the picture. Miami is full of diverse restaurants from many cultures. Yet, it is not every ethnic restaurant that serves up authentic food. I’m always on the hunt for authentic Jamaican restaurants, so when I found Jamaica Kitchen in Kendall, I was thrilled to try it!

Chocolate Coquito Recipe

Tis’ the season to be jolly!

You’ll definitely be feeling very merry after a few shots of coquito. Coquito is a delicious traditional holiday cocktail that originates from Puerto Rico. Think of it as the Puerto Rican version of egg nog. Most coquito recipes use eggs, some do not.

Italian Dinner Date at Pane e Vino, Miami Beach

Years ago, I had a first date with a tall, charming, handsome guy, Mr. K. He’s in his late thirties, and reminds me of a Richard Gere.

Neither of us is sure why we did not move forward with a second date years ago, but we were happy to reconnect. We both enjoy exploring restaurants.  So, for our fourth date, we visited the unique, Miami Beach Italian restaurant -Pane e Vino.

Dinner at Kona Grill, Miami

I had an absolutely amazing dinner at Kona Grill and can’t wait to share it with you! I apologize in advance for multiple photos of the same dish, the food was just so beautiful to photograph, and even more delicious! I was invited in for a tasting and excited to try their Picasso Roll (photos later). My friend, Steven happily joined me for this food adventure, and here we go!

Kuro Japanese Restaurant, Seminole Hard Rock Casino

If you love Japanese food (sushi, anyone?!) or if you’re looking for a cool, new restaurant, for your next date, I have the place for you!

On Saturday, I was invited to Kuro Japanese Restaurant to review their new lunch menu. I’m always on the hunt for great, new restaurants to explore, so I welcomed the opportunity to learn about this restaurant, located at Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, Florida.
