First Taste : Pinch Kitchen

Small bites, Big Impact is Pinch’s motto and Pinch Kitchen shows just that!

Partners John Gallo and Rene Reyes decided to open up Pinch Miami and we could not be happier with their decision. Pinch Kitchen is located at 8601 Biscayne Boulevard near El Portal neighborhood. Everything at Pinch is locally sourced and the menu clearly reflects that. Everything we tried on the menu at Pinch was incredible and has us wanting to come back for more.

One of the favorites we had was the Duroc Pork Secreto. What makes it so great? For one, the pork wasn’t dry, but the Pinch Creamy Potato is out of this world. You will have to try it for yourself to understand.

Check out the full menu here.

So what are you waiting for? Make plans to check out Pinch Kitchen tonight!

Most notably the newest menu item turning heads is the ‘Parm Pizza’ a.k.a. Heaven!


Parm Pizza is exactly what you think it is. Chicken Parm Pizza. It’s not a normal pizza either. The crust is the actual chicken. Then add some cheese and sauce and BOOM, you have chicken parm pizza! It’s delivered to the table atop a pizza rack and comes with spices like dried black olives and fresh honey, that will enhance the flavor of the pizza.

Check out the full Quality Meats menu here.

So next time you visit Quality Meats, add the Parm Pizza to your order. Your stomachs will thank you!

If you want that fusion, head over to Obba Sushi.

Obba Sushi has two locations in Brickell and Coral Gables. At Obba, you can find everything from your classic sushi to a sushi sandwich, which is amazing! If sushi isn’t your thing, Obba also offers warm dishes like Chicken Teriyaki and more.

Some of our favorite rolls we had were the Jalapeño Popper Roll (Shrimp tempura, jalapeño & cream cheese with chili mayo & grated Parmesan cheese on top) and the Ceviche Roll (Fried shallots, cilantro, steamed shrimp, daikon sprouts & while fish on top with Peruvian ceviche sauce & sriracha sauce.)

We recommend visiting Obba and ordering a few Obba Sandwiches aka Sushi Sandwich.
