Great little Latin restaurant in Miami

miaclockman | Jan 13, 2005 09:48 PM

I've lived in Miami for 25 years now and, of course, Latin restaurants are a dime a dozen. However, while shopping in the Kendall Mall one night (SW 88th Street and Mills Drive - corner of SW 117th Ave in Kendall), I found a little restaurant called "Charcoals". My wife and I love Carne Asada (sort of a thin steak grilled with onions and other spices), so I checked out their menu. The restaurant is small, but very inviting. I found the staff to be friendly and very helpful. I ordered from the take-out list - the main dish and two sides(I got congri which is beans and rice mixed together and sweet plantains). The whole thing for two orders was less than $15.00.
The food was delicious and the portions were just right for each of us - not too little, not too much.
I've gone back several times since then and never been disappointed.
So, if you're visiting the Kendall area (southwest Miami suburb), check it out... I felt it was a nice little restaurant with good food at a decent price.
