Miami New Times' Description
Jose Mendin, Sergio Navarro, and Andreas Schreiner were far from the first to flirt with the small-plate trend, but their presentation of Asian-inspired snacks at Pubbelly proved so popular they've since opened Pubbelly Sushi next door. The formula is pretty much the same: tasty, creative food at a good value in a welcoming pub setting. But as the restaurant moniker indicates, this time the menu is baited with raw fish, as well as cooked seafood. A sushi roll of barbecued pork belly and fried clams with kimchi coleslaw thrills; a soft-shell crab BLT is also bright and delightful. Many of the nonsushi snacks come from a robata grill, including pork belly, short ribs, pinchos de pollo, shishito peppers, and a skewer of meaty, delectable Amazon paiche fish brightened by lemon-miso glaze. Other highlights: smoked salmon rillettes and Wagyu beef carpaccio with roasted shiitake mushrooms and a slow-poached egg. Plus there's a beer belly of brews, many imported from Asia.
Tips from foursquare
In one (non) word: McBelly. 'nuff said. [Eater 38 Member]
Everything on the menu is delicious! Try the pork belly sandwich (order 2) and the pork belly dumplings.
Best of Miami 2011 Winner for Best Restaurant on the Beach! A truly locals' spot - the McBelly with kimchi ($6) and forget about your diet, bc everything on menu is delish.
The menu can best be described as Japanese with a tapas twist -- think pork belly-and-clam rolls served with kimchi coleslaw.
