Dinner at El Carajo (“The Gas Station”) in Miami

18 Oct

Would you eat dinner at a gas station? I would, if it is El Carajo.

Inside, it looks like a combination of a restaurant and a bakery.  Once you walk into the restaurant, it looks like a Spanish tavern.

I started the meal with a bowl of lobster bisque.  It was so thick and creamy, I could eat it with a fork.  Next we ordered the garlic shrimp.  It arrived sizzling hot and tasted good.  Then, we shared a tablet of fish, scallops, mussels, calamari, chicken, pork, steak, potatoes, and tostones.  It came with three delicious sauces to eat with the meal.  My favorite part of the tablet was the scallops.

We ended the meal with a chocolate torte. I love chocolate and this cake was amazing.

I would recommend this restaurant even though it is in a gas station.
