Lazeez Asian Cuisine
This dinner-only restaurant in West Kendall is the only Pakistani restaurant we've found in Miami so far (there are more in Broward). They make excellent meat-heavy dishes of Mughal descent, like nihari, which consists of beef shanks cooked overnight in a velvety gravy. They also make amazing kebabs with nuanced combinations of spices, like the seekh kebab and croqueta-like shami kebab. We highly recommend ordering the chicken haleem here. It’s a traditional breakfast dish made with cracked wheat and a variety of lentils along with shredded chicken that all just melt into each other. Make sure to finish with a bowl of rich, and not-too-sweet kheer, which tastes like rice pudding if it went to finishing school. Right now, Lazeez is only doing takeout, and we suggest calling ahead to place your order.
