Redlander Restaurant

Schnebly’s Winery has added a fresh new restaurant that offers farm to table dining experience.

   Since 2003, Schnebly’s Winery has offered South Florida a one of a kind experience, featuring the brightest and most unique flavors of wine you could possibly imagine. What better way to keep the tradition of using local and fresh ingredients than by adding a new edition to their team and introducing The Redlander Restaurant. Led by Chef Dewey LoSasso, my dining experience at the Redlander was anything but ordinary!

 I am going to get straight to the point and say that from beginning to end, my taste buds were overjoyed by each plate that was brought to the table.

I went to two different extremes with the appetizers and had the Mahi Mahi Ceviche and the Crispy Guava Chicken Wings. The ceviche was fresh, light, and had a great balance of citrus and spicy flavors, accompanied with an avocado and corn mash.



As for the wings, I don’t want to be biased, since I like everything extra crispy, but they were definitely my top choice in appetizers. Smothered in sweet yet tangy Guava, the wings had a perfect texture and every bite was as succulent as the first. (oh and crispy!)


I probably should have gone on the lighter side when it came to my entrée, but who are we kidding! The Pork and Grits dish was on the heavy side, but if you are looking for comfort and flavor, then this is the dish for you! The creaminess of the grits with the intense juicy flavor of the pulled pork had me on cloud nine!   The Redlander Burger had an interesting hint of mint and pepper to it and went really well with the coleslaw and fries.


Now if you are adventurous like me, you will not go wrong with the Avocado Flan Brulee for dessert. The avocado and flan combination has a refreshing, sweet and velvety taste to it. However, if you are not one to eat sweet avocado, then I suggest the Flourless Chocolate Torte. It was rich in chocolate flavor and fudgy for those of you who are skeptical about the “flourless” part of the dessert.



I highly recommend that you try The Redlander Restaurant when vising Schnebly’s Winery for a close to home, fresh, farm to table experience.

                  Remember, there is no need to rush! Take your time and savor every bite.


The Redlander restaurant is currently promoting their Miami spice menu, giving guests a chance to experience a 3 course meal at $23.00 per person for lunch and $39.00 per person for dinner. (Non-inclusive of tax, service, and beverages.)

Panaderia 20 de Julio

After moving to a completely new area in Kendall, I decided it was time to explore and check out the few breakfast options that were available to me. In this exploration I stumbled upon a small, almost hole in the wall, Colombian bakery called Panaderia 20 de Julio.

    As someone who comes from Colombian roots, I always tend to be a tad bit picky about restaurants that claim to be serving authentic Colombian couisine. I have to say that Panaderia 20 de Julio did not disappoint!!

   I started off with a simple Bunuelo, a small fried doughy ball that consists of queso fresco (curd white cheese), that had just been taken out fresh from the kitchen. I could already see that the color was absolutely perfect, having a golden crispy looking outside. The bunuelo was just as it should be, buttery, cheesy, crunchy on the outside and with a fluffy sponge like texture on the inside.



 I paired my bunuelos with a guanabana milkshake. Guanabana is a massive green fruit with a white fleshy inside. Its flavor is a combination of strawberry and pineapple with sour citrus flavor notes contrasting with an underlying creamy flavor similar of coconut or banana.

I have to admit that the Atmosphere at Panaderia 20 de Julio took me back to time spent in Colombia during my childhood, having breakfast at the corner bakery right before walking to school.

But it wasn’t just the cheesy bunuelos and milkshakes that have made me a loyal customer, it is their housemade aji ( Colombian hotsauce) and the chicharron platter that have me coming back almost every morning ! Chicharron, or fried pork belly, is a very popular side dish in some of Colombians most popular meals. Chicharron, however, can also be a great addition to your breakfast! Dip your chicharron into some spicy aji, and you will have an explosion of fresh hot flavors!


Panaderia 20 de Julio lives up to its Colombian roots and serves a variety of popular Colombian dishes, drinks and desserts.   

 If you are looking for a change from pastelitos and sweet morning breakfast treats, than I highly suggest that you try Panaderia 20 de Julio, where you will get an array of baked options as well as full on breakfast platters ranging from $1.25 to $8.50.

         Remember there is no need to rush! Take your time and savor every bite!
