At Earls Kitchen + Bar their secret is simple. According to them no matter the size of the gathering you’ll find it at every table and in every drink. You will find it in everything that they do. It’s called Soul.
You may have never heard of Earl’s prior to seeing them over at Dadeland Mall because this well-established chain was actually started and is headquartered up in Vancouver, Canada. Having over 50 restaurants all over Canada last year they decided to take their talents to the states, and opened up their first restaurant in the USA right in our backyard, and I am really glad they did.
First, I was pleasantly surprised when I walked in and saw the décor and restaurant set up. Like every restaurant is has your dinning area, but what’s cool about Earl’s is that they also have two bars set up with several flat screen TV’s, and also a pretty nice outside dining area. Great spot to take family, friends or for a birthday celebration.
Now when it comes to their menu it is seasonal so make sure to order the BBQ pork buns before they take them off the menu. These little guys come three to an order and let me tell you that the softness of the buns mixed with the sweet chili sauce and BBQ pork is divine.
For your entrée I suggest you try their famous Bronx burger, which comes stacked high with beer battered onion rings, red pepper relish, aged cheddar, arugula, and a hand smashed patty. And make sure to order a side of yam fries. If burgers really aren’t your scene, don't know how that could be possible, then try their slow braised rack of BBQ back ribs. The meat literally falls off the bone. And make sure it comes with their homemade warm potato salad.
For dessert you really have two options. You are either getting the chocolate hazelnut bar with salted caramel and vanilla bean gelato, or the warm chocolate sticky toffee pudding. Both are out of this world.
P.S. They also have a stellar cocktail list. With libations made with fresh ingredients you can’t really go wrong. My personal favorite is the Earl’s Old Fashioned.
