CHICA Miami Unveils New Dishes To Kick Off Fall Season

Chica NightsCHICA Miami reintroduces diners to their signature fresh, local comfort cuisine and hospitality with a well-priced menu featuring big flavors. CHICA’s menu was crafted by Celebrity Chef and published author Lorena Garcia with inspiration from classic Latin dishes. Chef Lorena’s menu is diverse and has something for everyone! The hotspot is currently a neighborhood staple and nightlife destination situated in the Miami Mimo’s district space formerly occupied by Soyka restaurant.

For the debut of their new menu, we had a chance to taste some fantastic food items. Some of the night highlights were the Shellfish Tower, a fresh assortment of lobster, shrimps, ceviche, to mention a few. The flaming Parrillada Mar y Tierra (surf and turf mix grill over live embers), an awe-inspiring presentation, and even better taste. Another favorite was the Roasted Ora King Salmon (ginger chili, nikkei glaze, confit tomato, cured lemon). As far as desserts go, The Churro Bouquets stoled the show; the entrance was quite spectacular, something like Churros fireworks right at your table. CHICA’s sophisticated decor with colorful murals combined with colonial ironwork made the perfect background for an evening of food, cocktails, and fun in the company of Chef Lorena herself. Find below the food items unveiled as part of CHICA’s new menu.
