Chimney Cake & Co.

7535 N. Kendall Dr., Miami
A European dessert known as chimney cakes — or kürtöskalács as they're called in Hungary — has made its way to Miami. Chimney Cake & Co. has opened inside Dadeland Mall and offers a modern take on the traditional pastry named for its unique shape: a hollow cylinder resembling a smoking chimney when it comes piping hot out of the oven. The menu sells both signature and customizable creations, with sweet and salty (as well as hot and cold) variations that include the "Winter Wonderland" that combines a toasted coconut chimney cake with white chocolate, pistachios, and strawberries topped with any choice of ice cream and red fruit sauce. Customers can pair their chimney cakes with Viennese coffee. 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday.

Or try unique offerings like the Spam musubi — seared Spam served on a slab of sushi rice and nori — or the "Mavericks" tacos stuffed with sesame tuna or salmon served in a crispy corn tortilla with purple cabbage, pico de gallo, avocado mousse, and sour cream. 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
