Ivan's Gastro (NMB)

The Chowfather | May 9, 201502:18 PM

Ivan Dorvil recently opened a restaurant in North Miami Beach next to Oishi Thai. You may recall him from Nuvo Kafe and seen him on Chopped.

He has a Haitian background but he told me he wants the restaurant to be international. (menu calls it Carib-Asian Cuisine)

Anyway, I enjoyed my first visit and opted for two Haitian inspired dishes Island Akra (Malanga Fritters) with watercress sauce. Nice texture & perfectly cooked.

The Tasso (Goat) was also very good. Very tender and nice flavor.

I really want to try the oxtail next.

Interesting and tasty complimentary starter - hummus w soy sauce and plantain chips. It worked.
