My friends will tell you, I always seem to know the best places to eat and unusual things to do. Here are a few of my tips for Doral.
Patagonia - Scandalously, I think they have the best empanada in Doral. Almost as good as my mom makes!
Sushi Joes - I consider this to be the best Sushi in Doral. They also have a fabulous lunch special.
La Sultana - Some of the best middle eastern food in Doral.
Pepito's Plaza - Every town needs a great hot dog joint, and here it is done Venezuelan Style.
P.F. Changs - Check out the happy hour at P.F. Changs - dim sum!
Things to Do:
Doral Dog Park - Probably the most happening thing in Doral. I've seen 100 people there on a Sunday evening.
City of Doral Events - If you have kids, check out the Doral events.
Spot the Manatees - So manatees like to hang out in the canals in Doral. One recent day, I spotted no fewer than 8 manatees, happily playing. They seem fat, healthy and relatively scarfree, but you should know that wildlife officials are monitoring them in case there's a problem.
Check Out the International and Dolphin Malls - People-watching is my sport of choice when visiting these malls. Look for the extreme shoppers - folks who've brought an extra suitcase to the mall to lug home their loot. The average Brazilian visitor to Miami spends over $5000 on purchases during their visit. Much of this may be resold to others to defray the cost of the trip.
