Cuisines of the Damned

Vecherny Vostok

Sobrebarriga a la criolla is the stomach of beef, a cut and treatment similar to braised brisket. The soft, flavorful flank was topped with diced onions and tomatoes in a thin beef jus, with two boiled potato chunks on the side; main courses also come with plantain spears. A long strip of churrasco steak, is, at $10.95, the most expensive menu item. It's also the most popular, and perhaps the best. Another savvy pick would be crisply breaded pork cutlet with ham and melted cheese in the center. Snapper is available five ways, chicken six, and a few pastas are offered, such as fettuccine Alfredo and spaghetti and meatballs. Good Colombian beer, Aguila, too.

If you order the right dishes, and if they have them, Mi Bosquecito is a decent, inexpensive eatery, certainly worth checking out if you live in the area. Vecherny Vostok, though, is a real find, and easily makes my Top 20 list of best ethnic restaurants in Miami. Make that Top 20 with a bullet.
