Got the Late-Night Munchies? Brickell Does, With New Colombian/Venezuelan Fast-Food Restaurant
|The Super Munchies Burger ($6.95) includes lettuce, onion, tomato, ham, egg, cheese, bacon, ketchup, pink sauce, herbs, pineapple sauce, and Munchies special sauce.|
Down the street from Colombian restaurant La Moon, which has held a monopoly on this cuisine on SW Eighth Street, the Munchies opened Saturday night. It offers a menu of flavor-packed, special-sauce-doused (five, to be exact), and ingredient-stacked Venezuelan and Colombian fast-food favorites.
Breakfast from 7 to 11 a.m. includes smoothies, shakes, and healthful muffins. From 11 to 2 a.m., the menu shifts to "Munchies Dinner and Late Night Munchies" such as Munchies Steak and Cheese Sandwich (special bread, steak, cheese, Munchies Herb or Munchies Spicy sauce; $8.95) and Munchies Pincho Mixto (chicken, beef, pepper, and onions served with arepas or baked potato with Munchies Herb sauce; $7.75). There are also "Signature Late Night Munchies" such as salchipapas (sausage with French fries; $4.75) and arepa con chorizo (pancake with sausage; $5.75.) Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, the restaurant shifts into late-night mode; it's open until 6 a.m., with delivery available at all times.
