Good Food.

had the mofongo, and a coconut guava cookie. it's kind of a hole in the wall in a strip mall, but food is solid! Not a spot for a romantic dinner. & bring an appetite.

We found this place thanks to the "routard" guide (French)! You can't find the place if you don't know it, because not in the overcrowded area of Miami Beach! But it's really worth it! I discovered the Puerto Rican and I loved it! Just try the Mofongo (the speciality)! You won't be disappointed! Tasty food and substantial portion! And the... More

Jimmy’z Kitchen serves home-style foods but with ingredients that you don’t have at home, portions are large and their prices are reasonable. Food is ordered at the register, you pay in advance, and when ready, the food is taken to your table. The employees are always ready and attentive, and we recommend this place when you have little time to... More

Jimmy'z Kitchen at the corner of 15th Street & Alton Road looks like a nothing of a restaurant... but what it lacks in pizzaz, it makes up in taste, quality, and consistency! I have eaten there at least 200 times in the past four years, and I love, love, love it! Skip the Mofongo, but definitely try the Ahi special... More

So I'd seen a show on the Food Network on making MOFONGO and it got me very curious. It looked so good. I searched the Food Network and of course could not find the show so could not see where it was, only recalled in was in the Miami area. Well with some research I found some mofongo raves associated... More
