Schnebly's Winery - your take?

It is great to see that someone is investing their time & resources to our local economy even if it is not your taste. The wines are great mixed to make martinis or spritzer for something different.

Buying Produce in Miami

I normally try to hit Lucky's Oriental market on Bird Rd and PK Oriental Market on Sunset are on the asian side of produce but different. If you take Krome off of Kendall there are a number of places to try including self pick. Peppers, tomatoes, strawberries when in season and some exotics. Winn Dixie on Bird Rd & 147th has fresh produce all the time and in good shape.The manager of produce there is very helpful

near the Biltmore Hotel, Coral Gables

Key West by the Gables 2238 Red Road went there a little while back. Nice place with comfy decor and clean inside of old grocery store. The food was good and prices were reasonable for portions. Try the crab croquette and fried shrimp. This place is not far from Biltmore at all.

corned beef for people who hate corned beef

I boil the for about 2 hours take out and score the fatty part into diamond pattern not going all the way down to bottom of meat. I mix together brown sugar, and grain mustard together and smear over top of corn beef and pour ginger ale on top while cooking at 350 continue to baste top with ginger ale. This makes a great carmelized version and goes well with saute cabbage not boiled.

Cafe Demetrio Coral Gables - Opinion for breakfast

I am looking for scenery. My friend is deaf and I heard it had a nice courtyard. Biltmore is probably out of my league even for breakfast. Place where we can sign (talk) without being starred at.

Vietnamese in South Florida

I have eaten the Pho at this place and you can get a small bowl or regular. This was probably a small. The broth is great by itself. They have a good menu not huge but something for everyone. Try the whole fish with lemon grass. I hear the short ribs are great when they have them.

If you are from South Dade you have to take a trip to the local Flea Market on weekends in the old packing house on US1 (Green Building) on right about 280th. They have about 20 different little sheds set up selling a kinds of mexican food. We ate lunch there I had the best tacos al pastor and corn on cob w/mexican cheese on top that was great. Check it out for fun. The prices are incrediable.

Miami- Wheres the best Indian?!?!

I tried Lazeez last night and had a wonderful take out dinner. Ordered Chicken Korma, Saag vegetable curry and garlic naan with green dipping yogurt. I enjoyed the food greatly with nice taste and heat. Place is sparse in decor and no one was eating there. The gentleman who cashed me out I believe was also the cook. A must try for take out but not sure I would take a date there.
