Burger Beast loves a great Croqueta as do most South Floridians. If you ever visit any other parts of the United States you’ll notice that this delicacy has not made its way there……YET! Is there any better way to celebrate something we love than with a festival? And so the idea for Croquetapalooza was born.
Breadman in West Hialeah is only a few months old but has already built a repertoire on a par with the Cuban bakeries founded by emigrated families. Its Nutella and Nutella with cream cheese-filled pastelitos give this novice joint a contemporary twist.
Former marketing man Andy Herrera opened this minuscule bakery along southbound Palmetto Expressway (5804 W. 20th Ave., 305-273-2362) three months ago, and already it’s a favorite. He picked up his skills from his father, who worked in commercial kitchens doing catering gigs and filling up the rickety lunch trucks that sustain the city’s construction workers.
