Miami New Times' Description

There is more to Miami Lakes, which is squeezed between Hialeah and Miramar, than residential neighborhoods, golf, and a shrine to sports legend Don Shula. Residents have been hiding a shopping-center tapas gem for almost four years. Complete with a Spanish flag, cork-covered tables, and two terra cotta walls decorated with wine bottles for the picking, the quaint locale whisks patrons off to Spain even though it's located just a few feet from a convenience store. Three employees run the 12-table restaurant most nights; they recommend just the right wine to accompany more than 60 tapas including croquetas de bacalao ($5.95), tortilla española ($5.95), and garbanzo frito ($7.95), in that exact order. For those looking for a fuller meal, the suburban hush-hush also serves larger dishes such as paella valenciana ($26.95). Owner, part-time chef, and Spaniard Mylo Gonzalez remembers every face and makes sure visitors return to his little piece of Andalusia.

    It's a cozy little local spot that I love to come an unwind on Friday evenings.. With a glass of sangria, a tortilla, a tabla Iberia and good company & you'll have a great dining experience.

    Come on a night when the Real Housewives of Hialeah aren't out and about, but other than that, delicious food and sangria. Get the Mejillones al Mojo de Cilantro. Best thing we ordered.
