Tequeno mania

Hours:MONDAY7:00AM to 7:00PM

Tequeñomania, which has locations in Kendall and Doral, is one of the best places to grab these Venezuelan cheese sticks in Miami. If you’ve never had one, it’s basically the Miami version of fried mozzarella, except made with squeaky queso fresco and wrapped in a strip of dough to look like a bready barbershop pole. What we really love about Tequeñomania, though, is that they don’t stop at the traditional cheese tequeños. We really fell in love with the carne mechada and gouda filling featuring juicy shredded beef (kind of like ropa vieja) and gouda cheese that melt together into one of the tastiest phallic-shaped foods we’ve tried in Miami. Don’t forget to add a squirt of their addictive green sauce.
