Dr. Limon (Kendall)

Not a popular type of restaurant, Dr Limon is a ceviche bar and seafood restaurant located in Kendall.  For those of you that don't know what ceviche is, it is a seafood dish typically made up of raw fish cured in citrus juices and spiced with peppers.  Ceviche is known in Latin America, but mainly it is Peruvian.  Dr Limon is of Peruvian origin.  The owners run the restaurant very well.

Along with multiple types of ceviche, Dr Limon contains an assortment of seafood dishes.  There are also mny dishes made up of chicken and other spices, on top of some sort of flavored rice.  As for the ceviche dishes, my family and I ordered their most popular one, Remedio Casero, which was an assortment of raw fish cured in a hot lime pepper topped with fried corn.  We also ordered Arroz con Pollo which was very tasty.  A lot of their dishes were spicy and full of flavor.  Another one of their specialties are their fruit smoothies.  I ordered a mango strawberry passion fruit smoothie.

Thi restaurant is a little far from the Pinecrest area, but it is worth the drive.  I recommend coming with a large group so you can order "family style" and try a bunch of different dishes.  Although I see this place as more of a dinner restaurant, it is open for lunch too.

Cafe Gigi (Midtown)

This little upscale cafe is located between Midtown and Wynwood. It features an Asian fusion menu with all sorts of dishes. Most dishes have an Asian sweet and spicy flavor.  This restaurant has different specials every day that are always great. The menu also has a lot of small plates that can be ordered for a table and shared. I recommend ordering a bunc of small plates and a few of the larger plates. There is also a separate sushi menu.

I've ate at this restaurant a few times. Cade Gigi is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I've tried their lunch and dinner and have been satisfied with both. Their Brussels spout plate and Fish Buns are my favorite. This is a cool, trendy place to eat at if you are ever in the area. The restaurant is somewhat small so I reccomend attending in a small group or the wait might be awhile. There is even a bar you can sit and eat at too.
