South Miami Heights


Our spot at Larry & Penny Thompson Campground (right next to Zoo Miami)

Yesterday we found a cool little hole in the wall spot for lunch that wasn't too far from our campground and had good reviews on Yelp and Urban Spoon, so we decided we'd give it a shot. It was called Enis Seafood. It's right down the road just before you get the Turnpike at the end of a strip mall, and has security bars covering the entire front of the place. It's definitely not the sort of spot you'd ever see and say "Hey! That looks cute! Let's try it." Luckily, we have the internet.

The decor inside was all blue and white with a beach/seafood theme, with a ton of those four dollar patio chairs, a 2D/3D ocean mural running the length of the place, and lots of cool signage hanging from the ceiling advertising their specialties.


We had lobster croquettes, shrimp ceviche, and both of the specials of the day (langostine enchilado, and fried fish). The specials came with small sides of sweet potatoes and plantains and everything was fabulous. Recommended…even if you don't speak Spanish. And even if it looks kind of scary from the outside. 

**Enchilado: A Cuban dish (different from a Mexican enchilada) of seafood cooked in a mildly spicy tomato sauce. Served usually with rice and fried plantains. Here's a recipe.
