As you probably guessed, Sonia’s specializes in patties - and they’re delicious. This popular shop has been in the same Kendall location for more than 30 years, and all of the patties are flaky, baked fresh, and made to order. Unfortunately, due to COVID, the shop only carries three of the dozen patties that it used to: beef (mild and spicy) and curry chicken, and all three are arguably some of the best in Miami. The patties are golden, the beef is spiced right without the scotch bonnet pepper taking the lead over the other ingredients, and the filling is finely minced instead of mixed into a paste. Keep in mind that when they say “spicy” here, they mean it. So, we recommend you sandwich a spicy patty between two pieces of coco bread. It will help balance the heat of the spice and the temperature of the patty that will most likely be steaming hot fresh out of the oven.
