Pamela’s is a classic restaurant on Bird Road, and one of Miami’s only Chilean restaurants. They’ve got a big menu full of sandwiches, seafood, soups, and more. But the one thing you can find on just about every table here are empanadas. Pamela’s is deservedly famous for their delicious versions, which are mostly baked, generously filled, and pretty massive (our favorite is the shrimp and cheese). Another thing that should be on the table—besides the wonderful frozen pisco sour—is the pastel de choclo. It’s a sort of corn casserole with a golden brown surface and chunks of tender chicken dispersed throughout. The dining room is casual and quiet—good for a family dinner or big Sunday night meal.
