This little spot in Doral is not a dine-in restaurant (at least not anymore), so don’t walk through the door or they’ll tell you to walk right out. But there is a ventanita where you can order what we think are Miami’s best Venezuelan empanadas. You’re going to wait at least fifteen minutes for these golden pockets of greatness, so call and order ahead or enjoy a chicha while you wait. The empanadas are both crispy and soft, like goose down in freshly starched pillow covers. Our favorite is the salty/sweet cazon y platano. They have other options like arepas, burgers, and cachapas. But it’s mostly just a great place to pick up a giant empanada, bring it back to the office, and make everyone there incredibly jealous.
