Jennifer’s Cafeteria is a casual Honduran restaurant located right off 163rd street in North Miami Beach. They make some good baleadas, but the best thing to order here is their pollo frito ceibeño. It features a fried chicken leg quarter smothered in a mild tomato sauce, and showered with shreds of a sharp cheese that reminds us of cotija. It’s served with freshly fried green banana chips (not to be confused with the plantain variety) and a colorful cabbage salad with tomatoes and a pile of cilantro. It tastes like the very Miami answer to chicken parmesan. Jennifer’s also serves one of our favorite breakfasts in Miami, the desayuno hondureño. This traditional breakfast includes carne asada, refried black beans, over easy eggs, a puddle of mantequilla (AKA Honduran sour cream), a wedge of fresh cheese, and one of the best handmade corn tortillas we’ve ever had. The best part: it’s available all day and makes a killer hangover cure. Just remember that Jennifer’s is closed on Sundays.
