L’Auberge Haitian Restaurant

13315 W Dixie Hwy
North Miami, 33161
Reviews:
I really enjoy Haitian cuisine, particularly griot and fried beef, so after driving by this nondescript several times and observing the fact that the restaurant was always slammed, decided to stop by today for a late lunch. I was starving since I hadn't had breakfast, so decided to start of with an order of alka -- malanga and cod fish fritters -- which I had never tried before. Perfectly cooked, and with a bit of heat from the peppers incorporated into the filling, these were a wonderful way to make their acquaintance. Of course, I chose the griot (fried pork chunks), with rice and beans, fried plantains, and piklis (spicy cabbage salad). I cannot stress enough how tender, well-seasoned, and perfectly cooked the griot was. DELICIOUS. Fried plantains were also well-cooked and plentiful, while rice was decent but a bit bland. They serve the griot plate with a side of ox tail sauce which amps up the taste of the rice. Piklis was perfect! Hot, but not overly so as is the case with other Haitian eateries I've frequented. Another notable difference between L'Auberge and other Haitain restaurants is the fact that service is PHENOMENAL. And I do mean PHENOMENAL. My entire meal with appetizer, drink, entree, extra piklis, and a side of rice to take home for my leftover griot, was only $12.75. It doesn't get much better than that.

Eggwhites Special Event Catering

Reviews:
My office had a party that used eggwhites to cater to a big group. Everything was organized and well planed, the food was great (thanks Chef Gary!) and the service was amazing. A special thanks to Ashley and Sarah who were especially helpful. We definitely plan to use them for our next event because of how easy it was on our end to have a nice event with minimal effort. I highly recommend them.
Eggwhites Special Event Catering was a pleasure to work with! Sarah listened carefully to me when we spoke together about the event and came up with the perfect menu for a casual summer surprise birthday party for my husband. She even was able to source and provide the "must have rolls" for our sandwiches. Everything was perfect from our initial site visit to the extensive food set up and presentation. The entire team was friendly and courteous and everyone fell in love with the amazing and creative bartender, Ashley. Thank you Eggwhites for helping to create such a memorable evening.
I highly recommend this company. The food was FANTASTIC; the staff was very professional and the party was a success!

Reviews:
I liked this place so much that not only is this my first review ever but i also created the restaurant (that's saying a lot coming from me). I yelp a lot but I am more of a yelp parasite than host. I'm so surprised no one has created or reviewed this little place! I just got a 12 inch veggie sub on fresh baked whole grain bread with every vegetable you could imagine and fresh pesto for just $6 and change! They have daily specials, homemade soup, smoothies, wonderful looking coffee, fresh baked breads and other goodies. Great service, the owner is very nice. The only thing I should add is there really isn't much as far as seating is concerned, it's very small. It's more of a pick-up and go kind of place. I will be back over and over, as long as people go and support this little local north miami joint.

Konata’s Restaurant

North Miami, 33168
Reviews:
What a hidden treasure ! The owner was impeccable. ! I walked in there was several guest ahead of me ! THE OWNER announced that all food had sold out ! He did have sip and patties! Then the magic happened, The two guest ahead of me was visiting from Germany and was flying out the next day ! The sky opened up and the Rain came down ! . Konta went in the kitchen and prepare both of us a plate of food and sip and Pattie OMG ! I was so Impressed that He displayed His VERY Best Customer Satisfaction ! I left a hefty tip ! I have an announcement : This Is The Best Vegan Resturant Konata Miami please Visit Soon !
Believe the hype. Don't you just love having a fantastic meal with lots of food and not feeling like you swallowed a brick afterward? I know I do! There's only one dish of the day that you have to get when you walk in. When it comes to vegan food I don't mind going in blind but my boyfriend was a little turned off by that. The food however- chick'n nuggets, rice & peas, salad, greens and plantain- more than made up for our disenfranchised menu experience. Boy was it yummy! And if you know Caribbean food you know that it shouldn't lack in flavor, spice and color. Konata definitely does not disappoint. Everything tasted fresh and flavorful, and even the presentation was great. The cherr(ies) on top for me were the great reading material while we waited that explained the healing benefits of certain foods, the cool photos around the place, and the delicious banana bread we had for dessert. The only thing I was not a huge fan of was the veggie patty. I've had lots of patties in the past so my mind was probably expecting something different but the crust kind of threw me off. I think it was buckwheat or something. However, I still ate it. Ha ha. Would love to come back here when I'm back in town!
My group needed to stop for gas and so we decided to stop and get some food. Yelp led us to Konata's and we were skeptical. Like many reviews have stated, the surrounding area could use a makeover; however, the place itself was very clean and cozy. While we waited for our food, we noted 2 awards for being one of a handful of restaurants to have 0 sanitation violations. We also noted that the Dalai Lama had visited Konata's (no biggie). The food tasted so incredibly fresh. My whole group devoured everything. We wanted to eat the whole meal again. It was so delicious. The organic blackberry juice tasted like pure health and happiness. The cake even tasted healthy while still tasting like dessert. We're heading back to Boston soon and Konata's will definitely be one of the trip highlights.

Exquisite Catering by Robert

1800 NE 150th St
North Miami, 33181
Reviews:
I use Exquisite any time I have a special event or just want to throw together a small dinner party. They have never failed at exceeding my expectations. The food is full of flavor, portions are HUGE, prices are very reasonable, staff is friendly. All services provided by Robert are phenomenal. I recommend Exquisite for anyone who wants to have a successful event without the headache.
Last night we were attended by the great staff from Exquisite Catering for a special event held in the Miami Auto Museum. From a great open bar, to satisfying appetizers (wings, pings in a blanket and spinach pastry triangles with soy sauce) and self served food stations... I think it's safe to say the rest of the guests seemed content enough to go back for seconds. The food stations displayed veggies with different cheese and crackers, bruschetta with tomato and basil, fruits, cookies & brownies (my fave was the chocolate chip with walnuts), burger sliders and tri-colored pasta. The selection was enough to say that they served up some pretty decent food. The waiters and bartenders were so friendly and attentive.
I recently was invited to a function where Exquisite Catering was hired to provide the food and booze. I was not disappointed. The servers and bartender were top notch. These people are charismatic and completely friendly. They either get paid very well or must all be related because their attitudes were on point! The food was nothing out of the ordinary but nevertheless flavorful and worth it. My favorite was the Cheese and vegetable selections followed by the burger sliders. The drinks were really good with premium brands like Gray Goose. Good beers too. I recommend this company.

Every time I'm in the neighborhood I make sure to stop in for lunch! The food is delicious and I don't have to worry about eating and healthy and healthy. everything on the menu is fabulous!
I've been here several times now, and the food has been delicious each time. It's cooked fresh with simple ingredients, but it's always so flavorful. You leave here feeling full but light, if that makes any sense. Jean, the owner and chef, is incredibly friendly and takes a lot of pride in what he does. It's always a pleasure having lunch here.
Commissary Miami is my go-to lunch place. It's a hidden secret! Chef Jean's fresh daily soup specials are incredible...my favorite! My favorite sandwich is the avocado and tuna on multi grain bread. Truly, all the food here is wonderful...and healthy! I want to try everything on the menu, but I cannot seem to get past the daily lunch specials and the tuna avocado! Chef Jean always has a smile, and he strives to make sure that the customers are happy, The space is really inviting: contemporary industrial. For being a small space, there is a lot of room to sit down and spread out. How can food this healthy taste so good?!?!?

Ivan’s Gastro Caribbean Asian Fusion Restaurant

14815 Biscayne Blvd
North Miami, 33181
Reviews:
This restaurant exceeded my expectations! The food was great. For appetizers we had a special platter that had monfongo, akra, and tassot. Was great! The tassot was soft and not hard. The akra wasn't greasy like other places. For dinner I had the griot and the rice was great! This blows Tap Tap out the water. If you want a taste of real Caribbean and Haitian food with a nice ambiance and great staff then come here. This was a soft opening and we hear that they will have a grand opening next week. We are coming back for my moms birthday. Check out the fish my dad had. It was great! Five stars!
I've passed this place many times going to a chain-- I won't anymore! Wow! A real chef, in Florida, using fresh food!!?? Who would have thunk it? The prices were what you would pay for far inferior food as well.. I started with the Beef Mofongo! Well actually they serve a hummus plate for free before that which was AWESOME!. The Mofongo was great! It came with a salad with passion fruit dressing which was also really great.. I'm not the biggest fan of sweet dressings, but it was very flavorful! For my meal I wanted to keep it light and had the special chopped salad with grilled salmon, which was also great! I will definitely be back to try some more of this great food.. Also the chef was gracious enough to come out and see how I liked everything (I love that!) Yum!
This is such a great place to eat! Delicious and fresh! Ivan will come out and even make you something special, not even on the menu!! He's won awards on TV's cooking shows! I'm impressed! I've had many fish dishes on the menu including the crab cakes, and they have all been great! A hidden gem, for sure!

Cane A Sucre

Reviews:
Ate well with my 5 year old. We shared La Tuna, a side of fries & the Tomato Basil soup. The service was attentive, not overbearing. La Tuna as a sandwich is a perfectly seared tuna steak with hard boiled eggs, tomatoes & avocado. The fries satisfied my son. The Tomato Basil soup was enjoyed as well. Even though we came on a Sunday, it's likely this place is packed for breakfast & lunch due to the quality & location. We will definitely come back.
The food and burgers are amazing I love their breads are soo good! I'm in love
This is an awesome little sandwich shop! The sandwiches are so delicious! Very fresh and great flavors! Unique! I love everything Ive tried so far. The pollo is awesome as well as the cuban and the burgers! The soups are also really good. Try it! You wont be dissapointed!
