Miami Street Food?

Did Guiseppe's Italian Sausage truck go out of business. It was the real deal as far as NYC sausage goes!

Staying at Westin Diplomat on Hollywood Beach. Any great restaurants in the area?

Just ate at Suliko for the first time. It is in the Aquarius and you can eat on the Pool Deck. This is Georgian food with fabulous Kabobs served up dirt cheap. Also the The Georgian Soup Dumplings Hinkali do not come in soup they are huge and need to be eaten by hand Yum. Chicken Satsivi was served cold didn't really get the taste of Walnuts but the sauce tasted of chicken Soup. Did not try any of the appertizers, but since they will deliver to where I live on beach next door I will be going through the menu .

Fulvio's and El Goyo Pollo closed.

Sardelli on Van buren. Just off the beach.

Giorgio's has the most erratic food and weakest coffee.

GG's don't go for dinner the worst service ever but a good Happy Hour on the Bay!

aventura, hollywood, hallandale--south beach--reasonable--fresh--

Before you recommend a place please eat at the location you actually recommended! You start off with you found this great new place in Aventura. This place was not new, and Franchises are not all the same!!! Please go to this location and then try recommending it. It still won't go over on the bouad but at least it will be an honest review (at least for you ) of the location!

Ill admit I am not a fan of franchises it doesn't mean I won't frequent one esp on the road but as a rule they do not highlight local fresh ingredients and appeal to an un sophisticated palate.
That being said even among fans of particular chains that particular pei Wei has a very bad reputation even among people who like Pei Wei. That location Panera bread in Hallandale and Las vegas in Hallandale are all the bane of the franchises reputations.

All that being said the stars could have lined up and you received a miracle a good meal in a bad restaurant. It is also possible to get a bad meal in a good restaurant. BUT NOIT THAT PEI WEI! i HAVE BEEN TO ONE ALL THE WAY out by red road and it was edible.

Sorry but I will never again set foot in Kabobjii . Eating lunch one day the pita baker drops a pita on the floor and throws it back in the oven . I go and say something to the owner who does not stop his conversation with whoever and says I'll go talk to him. He never gets off the phone and the pita gets served! YUK!!!!

To the person who recommended Pei Wei all I can say is REALLY! Dishwater as soup no flavor to the food and terrible service!

I just had the cilantro ceviche @ Rizio's Federal H'way and 159th It is a legitimate contender. The Tacu Tacu was pretty good too!

Lebanese restaurants in greater Miami area

I won't go to Kabobji. Last time there baker dropped pita bread on the floor and put it back in oven!

Not really a restaurant Noors Bakery has 4 tables but mostly takeout.

Further North you have Al Salam and Kuluck. Both on Sunrise just East of University.

Goat or Lamb meat? Where can I get in South Dade?

Not exactly where you want to go but, Hellas Import in Hollywood will sell you an entire lamb. Not sure if they will cut it up for you give them a call. They will also rent you a china grill if you want to cook it whole!

TOP SUBS in SOUTH FLORIDA (Miami, Ft Lauderdale)

The Sandwicheer in Hallandale. Don't know where they get it but they have real Italian Semilina bread. Can't stand the soft pasty bread @ Sub Center. The breads @ Lorenzo's and Doris are ok but not the real thing! but they are decent.

Dirt cheap (yet quality) lunch/dinner in Fort Lauderdale?

Love Tarks, But going for the cheapest of the cheap and also one of the best places around Noor's Bakery. Everything $1.50 to $4.00 made fresh to order. While picking up an assortment of Zataar breads with different topping to go, while on Angler's Lane you might want to try some of the Lunch special's at the Rustic Inn!

Authentic Dim Sum in Broward

this must be my week for bad food. After not being able to get into uncle liu's, a Hungarian restaurant in Sunrise without a reservation Decided to go to China Pavillion for dinner. Last time I went we had the Lobster over vermicelli and beef chow fun. Both were excellent. This time Hot and sour soup out of balance terrible with no hot or sour. Roast pork app was stringy like you would get at a bad buffet. The best thing I could say about the lamb in a clay hot pot was that the tofu skins were good. the sauce put me off and what little lamb was on the large chunks of bone were stringy and not very flavorful.The chicken in black bean sauce also had problems. It was served with sauteed red onions peppers and tomatoes that totally overpowered the light black bean sauce which you could not taste. The chucks of chicken were actually larger then the awful chicken breast sandwiches served up at the Poker room at the Hard Rock.

Kabobji NMB

YUCK!!!Recommended by someone on the board. I had eaten here a few times before the new owners put in a pita oven! So decided to go for a quick 58 minute lunch! 12:40 only 2 people working the floor paying more attention to takeout then people eating. No one sits me so I seat myself! 14 minutes later get menu! waiter takes 10 minutes to pour a cup of soup!
Chicken soup was great. Chicken shawarma was dry and cold. Guy making the pita bread drops one on the floor and throws it back in oven! Check Please

Great No-miss in/near Hollywood restaurants

So are any of the other locations on a pier over the ocean??? You wouldn't catch me dead in any of the other locations!

The recommendation was for the view not the food and as such I think it is a new institution (on the PIER).

While I am relying Mama MIa really!!!!! next we will be telling people to go to Carrabas for Italian!

Great No-miss in/near Hollywood restaurants

my problem with Kabobji is that they do not serve fresh pita bread. They serve day old Lavash in plastic bags and you have to beg them to nuke them to warm them up.

I'd like to add a new Florida institution, not so much because the food is great (slightly better then average bar food) but because of the view! Quarterdeck just opened up on the Dania pier! In all of South Florida you would be very hard pressed to come up with a better view! Sand and surf to the F!lorida inlet and other the South side as far as the eye can see. In and outdoor dining!

Looking for decent Bakery (Bread)

I found a couple of places. Matryoshka Is a Russian Grocer that opened in Sunny Isles 182nd street . They make a great German bread there. They do not sell the bread alone and I don't know where they get it but The Sandwicheer on Atlantic Blvd in Hallandale has the real deal semolina bread for hero's . I don't believe I'm saying this but the old world county Rye at the Publix on Hallandale beach blvd ( have tried it at others just not the same) is pretty dam good!

best pizza

Only been to the Pizza Rustica in Hollywood and it sucks. Pizza At Anthony's all depends on how busy they are and whos slinging the pies... consistency has really gone downhill since they franchised. As far as no sauce for the wings.... DO YOU LIKE YOUR BBQ WET OR DRY LOL

Good Italian bread Hallandale

I Stopped into a little hole in the wall next to one of other favorite hole in the Walls. The Sandwicheer on Atlantic Shores Blvd between the 7 11 and Eltamarindo's.

The special of the day was a meat ball sub and they said they had Italian bread. They do not even know what they had. It was a seeded Semolina bread that would make any bakery in Brooklyn proud!
Add to that fresh mozzarella (not sliced and you have quite a winner.

Prices pretty cheap too! Place clean enough to eat in!
