Karne

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Karne is one of the newest restaurants on the Miami scene as of June, 2019.  They have moved into the large space in the Waterways shopping center in Aventura that used to be occupied (through early 2019) by Fuego.  And, their business model is not all that different from Fuego's.  Like Fuego (in its prior iteration in this space), Karne has a menu that includes sports bar appetizers, grilled meats, burgers, and sushi, only serves wine and beer (no liquor), takes advantage of the large outdoor seating area, and tries to cater to both families on vacation in addition to adults out for a nice dinner.  However, unlike Fuego, Karne does a better job on a number of fronts: better service, more reasonable menu prices, and (at least since they've opened, which has been during the quiet summer months) has not lost itself in the sea of annoying tourist families.

Our first experience was very enjoyable: attentive and friendly wait staff, constant refills of water, explanations of menu items, tasty and fresh food, appropriate menu prices.  The Pinchos de Pollo were a great menu item when ordered with Black Beans and Plantains to experience the restaurant's Latin influence.  The burgers were juicy and beefy, too.  The chicken wings came out crunchy and were doused in Buffalo sauce that had the correct flavor (real buffalo - vinegar, pepper, and fat - and not some honey bbq that they erroneously call Buffalo).  However, they do need to do a better job with feather removal (as is a problem in a lot of South Florida establishments).

South Florida did not need another place like this (there are already a lot of casual restaurants that serve sports bar appetizers, grilled meats, burgers, and sushi).  However, this place is better than the average, and with its desirable location, it is certainly worth selecting for your night out.

Miami Marlins Kosher Korner

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Kosher Korner at Marlins Park is a fully functional kosher concession stand at the ball park.  Although there is a lot of kosher food available across Major League Baseball, this is actually one of the only concession stands that is built-in, under strict hashgacha, and has true cooking equipment, including a grill, steamer, and deep fryer.  While a lot of ball parks offer hot dogs, this concession also has items like french fries, chicken tenders, and burgers.  They even have kosher nachos with a parve cheese dip.

Right in front of Kosher Korner, they have a minyan at every weekday evening game.

In front of the stand is a toppings bar which is not under the hashgacha of the concession stand.  However, they generally have kosher ketchup and mustard with a hechsher.

There is nothing better than watching a game with a kosher dog!

Subway

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Miami's kosher Subway outlet is one of very few kosher subway outlets left around the world after rapid expansion in prior to 2010 followed by a number of outlets closing down shortly thereafter.  For South Florida, it is a mainstay.  Located on the campus of the Michael-Ann Russell Jewish Community Center in North Miami Beach, it attracts a steady crowd of folks after school and all throughout the day.  Eating at a kosher outlet of a large fast food chain is a fun thing to do, and this is one of the very few places to do so outside of Israel.

Its menu is full of the Subway classics that are available at non-kosher Subway outlets.  The quality of the ingredients is superior, and the prices are not prohibitively expensive such that even a non-kosher consumer would feel comfortable with the prices.

There's a large indoor seating area, and some tables outside as well.  They do a lot of catering, too.

Nona Bakery & Pizzeria

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

 Nona Bakery & Pizzeria is a new addition (as of March, 2019) to the Surfside / Bal Harbour Harding Avenue Kosher strip.  It compliments an existing line-up of great kosher restaurants with an Israeli-style bakery and pizza shop.  Note that upon opening, Nona was known as NOMA, but changed its name after two months.

The bakery items include both sweet and savory (cookies, pastries, cakes, breads, bagels, challahs, and burekas).  The Pizza come served on a thicker-than-usual crust, and is served by the slice or whole-pie.  The crust is doughy and crunchy - it is not typical NYC style, but instead is the type of pizza you'd eat on the streets of Tel Aviv.

The burekas come in a long list of varieties, including both cheesy and parve.  

There's not much seating in the store, but there are quite a few counter seats in addition to three small tables-for-two.

Kosher Grill

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Kosher Grill is a great way to end a busy day in Orlando.  It is designed for the Orlando vacationer: great for kids, extensive menu, huge portions, and a convenient location.  The service and food quality is better than you'd expect for a restaurant that doesn't need to build a longstanding relationship with its customers (because they're rarely frequent repeaters).  The crowds can be difficult to navigate through during prime vacation weeks, but otherwise, it is easy to get a table and even easier to order food to go.

The Israeli dishes are the best bets on the menu.  The hummus was very fresh and smooth and the toppings were hot and flavorful.  The french fries were also a highlight: very crispy on the outside, but soft and hot on the inside. 

The location is within a strip mall right off of International Drive near the entrance to Universal Studios.  However, it is worth the fifteen or twenty minute drive from Disney too.
