Miami New Times' Description

It's 3 o'clock Saturday morning, and you've been out drinking around Brickell. There's a good chance you'll be among the other hungry partygoers who flood this small restaurant for a hangover-curing, Colombian-style fast-food fix. But fast food at 3 a.m. is not the only reason people flock here. Weekdays at lunchtime, the humble spot is packed with execs and others in search of homey Colombian dishes. If you dare, try the SuperMoon perro ($5.85) - a hot dog topped with six sauces, crushed potato chips, and a quail egg - which was featured on the Travel Channel's Man vs. Food. The Moon burger ($5.50) and chicken burger ($5.50) are good choices too. And you can't go wrong with the daily lunch specials ($8.55): Wednesdays, enjoy the traditional ajiaco, or stop in on Thursdays for braised brisket with rice, potatoes, yuca, and salad. Service is friendly but spotty. Still, for reasonably priced Colombian fare that tastes home-cooked, La Moon fits the bill.

    Authentic arepas, Colombian hot dogs with toppings like quail egg and late hours to satisfy the drunk frat boy in all of us. [Eater 38 Member]

    Adam opted for the Supermoon Perro, a Columbian-style hotdog with unexpected, yet delicious toppings. As seen on Travel Channel’s Man v. Food Nation.

    This spot is open till 6 a.m. Thursday through Saturday, but it still attracts a normal crowd during the week. They have daily Colombian specials, and most of their menu items are under $10.

    Arepa hamburgers are to die for - never thought that some could make better arepas than me! ;0)
