Kin Asian Street Food
This strip-mall nook tucked away in Pompano Beach offers enough flavor and flair to impress any diner. The pork buns are rich and stuffed with anything from rich pork belly to savory portobello mushrooms.

The perfect dining spot for the adventurous eater with a large stomach.

America’s Bakery may be tucked away in a strip mall, but it’s bursting with enough color and Colombian spice that you must take notice. We started with the arepa con choclo, buttery fried corn cakes topped with savory queso (cheese for us non-Spanish speakers). What followed was a plethora of grilled steak and plantains and fresh soups and salads that left us wanting more even when we finished our plates. A perfect destination for lovers of filling and flavorful Colombian food.
