As I understood it from our slightly chongalicious waitress, themenu gets changed frequently, so the food I'm reviewing may not evenbe on the menu anymore. Oh well, te jodiste. First up, istheir Tamal En Casuela also known as Florida Corn Casserole. Thisbowl of heaven was pretty much spiced up grits with a delicioussmoked oxtail ragu, a fried lake meadow egg and toasted garlic allover the top. My best friend and I nearly clawed each other's eyesout fighting for the last bite. The flavors were delicious, slightly spicy and the overall texture was creamy and inviting. When our waitress came overto check on us my best friend told her (in true Hialeah style), "Yea,tu crees que me puedas dar un tanque de eso pa llevar pa la casa?"Clearly, he liked it as much as I did.
Up next I got their Frita China, this may be the most politicallyincorrect name for a frita I've ever heard. Considering the fritacontains kimchee, cilantro, diced onions, ketchup and homemadepapitas, there ain't much of anything "Chinese" in this frita.Either way it was delicious. Only problem is the size is slightlylarger than a slider, and with all the flavor going on you just wanta big ol', piled high frita to stuff your mouth with. The frita wasserved with a skimpy serving of freshly made mariquitas. Themariquitas were perfectly cooked, potato chip thin and well seasoned.My only gripe was how few of them were served, another handful ofmariquitas would've been perfect.
I'll definitely be back, again andagain. Overall, all of our food was delicious and our waitress wasvery attentive. The place is not a huge restaurant and even on aTuesday during the day, it was quite busy.
