Following a split with Phuket "Cake" Thongsodchaveondee, restaurateurs Javier Ramirez and Leo Monterrey debated what to do with their space on NW 29th Street in Wynwood. They considered keeping a Thai kitchen but eventually settled on classic renditions of Cantonese fare in an area where Richard Hales' Blackbrick Chinese has long been the lone option. Highlights from Palmar’s menu include a pair of pork buns either steamed or baked, as well as fried rice, Mongolian beef, and crispy prawns.
