Pinch Kitchen Miami Egg in a Hole

Sometimes I wake up and want brunch and sometimes I wake up and want Pinch Kitchen's brunch! The Egg in a Basket is always my go to. It's a homemade potato bowl filled with egg and potato foam, served with a tiny mountain of speck and whole wheat toast. All seemingly simple elements but when put together it's perfection! I may also be slightly allergic to one of the spices used with the speck but it's just so good that I continued to suffer through the itching over and over again.

Hillstone Miami Cuban French Dip Sandwich

Secret menu item at Hillstone Coral Gables !  They can make a "cuban" style version of their famous french dip by adding cheese and pressing it. Who knew? Even old classic favorites can sometimes surprise you.

Pinch Miami Kimchee Guacamole

It's funny how the simplest of ideas can wow a table. Our friends live in Morningside and after we raved about Pinch Kitchen, we offered to meet them for dinner one night. While the regular menu at Pinch Kitchen is full of great dishes, I look forward to their specials. This week's specials included kimchee guacamole. Who knew that the marriage of guacamole and kimchee would be such a winning combination?  Everyone at our table angled for the last bite. So good!!!!  Like I said, it's the simple things....done well.
