Awash Ethiopian restaurant

 

 

My friends and I have commented on how we crave different, super tasty food as in exotic, ethnic dishes other than the usual Latin American and Japanese fare. And it’d be dishes we wouldn’t usually cook because you need to have so many special ingredients you wouldn’t want to buy for a one or two time run. My takeout has included favorites of Persian, Indian, Vietnamese, and Ethiopian food. I’ve also added Thai, with the recent reopening of a Miami favorite, Nai Ya Ra. Note that all have delivery, but where possible try to pick up the food since it saves the restaurants the big cut for the delivery service. Happy to share the names of the best ethnic restaurants in Miami,  favorite dishes and other tips. Enjoy!

Mother’s Day in Miami: The Splurge

You deserve it. So much cooking, cleaning the kitchen, scouring pans. So here’s Miami’s Mother’s Day splurge. It’s my favorite menu having seen others around town, and it’s from one of my favorite restaurants. It’s pricey, but there’s a lot of food. And maybe you can get a few people together to split the cost. A bonus — you get a bottle of Louis Roederer champagne included.

Crazy Delicious Miami’s Pavlova with Dulce de Leche

Of all the desserts, my number one choice to be quarantined with, the Pavlova takes the cake! If you’ve been to New Zealand or Australia or are just a dessert lover, you’ve probably heard of the pavlova, a meringue based cake named after the Russian ballet dancer Anna Pavlova. It’s such a popular dessert for special occasions that the culinary world in both countries is dueling to this day over the nationality of its creator. And here in Miami there’s Piononos bakery and its divine version of the Pavlova.

Miami Farmers Markets Offering Delivery and Pickup

Add tasty, low cal excitement to your in home eating with local produce from Miami’s Farmer’s markets, now offering delivery and pickup. Vegetables in particular are at the peak of freshness and you can find items that aren’t often available in other markets. Sunday Mr. W and I went to the Redlands Community Market, ordered on the spot, and nabbed meaty, large oyster mushrooms; the freshest bell peppers we’ve eaten in awhile; crisp baby bok choy; to die for baby eggplants, and other goodies. We never had to get out of the car. They put everything in the trunk . Plus, it makes for an outing (and only took us 30 minutes of driving from Brickell Avenue). Here’s a list of seven markets.
