Small Bites

12275 S Dixie Hwy, Pinecrest; 305-255-7799. Open Monday through Friday 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Sunday 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Philly Cheese Steaks are the specialty here -- eight-inchers for $4.75, foot-long monsters for just a buck more. They're made with thin sirloin; they come with a choice of grilled onions (a must), green peppers, or mushrooms; and they're topped with real melted cheese, not that processed stuff from a can. You also have a choice of either a white or a honey-wheat hoagie roll, but don't worry about this joint ruining a street classic with silly fancification. "French style" just means they toast the roll. For non-purists, there are some tasty variations on the classic Philly (for just 35 cents more), the best -- if not messiest -- has cream marsala sauce. Teriyaki peppers kick butt too. If you don't feel like a Philly, choose from a variety of other subs, including a nice Italian cold-cut model, and an egg/pepper/onion hoagie for herbivores. For more high-brow eaters, there's a new line of designer sandwiches, like a Chicken Waldorf or a veggie thing with sprouts.

5683 NW 36th St, Miami Springs; 305-887-2212. Open for lunch Monday through Saturday 11:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., dinner daily 5:00 to 10:30 p.m. Suvi proves that if an eatery is going to go the now-predictable Thai-sushi route, the best approach is abundance. So what if the tom yum talay is so light on the chili fire it ends up tasting like hot lemonade? There are a half-dozen other Thai soups to try, and the wonton was loaded with nicely textured chunks of chicken. No conch today? Try quail eggs. There are seven appetizers, five salads, nine entrées, six curries, eight shrimp dishes, nine fish and squid offerings, four preparations of duck, four types of fried rice, seven noodle-based selections, fourteen vegetarian choices, and the same number of house specialties (including two made with frogs' legs). Oh, plus seventeen lunch specials. And that's just the Thai menu. There is an equally vast range of Japanese-style dishes. The sushi was just fine -- half the items very good, half not so great. But simply reading through Suvi's menu (squid stuffed with salmon and asparagus, chilled seaweed and sesame) is quite an experience, and no one can complain about a lack of choice.
