But which option offers a better deal? To find out, Short Order recently visited Toro Toro for both meals. Pictures of the smack down after the jump.
Lunch at Toro Toro will set you back $25 plus tax and tip. The price includes a soda, coffee or tea, and a churro after your meal.
"Downtown Miami residents and workers are always on the run and we wanted to be sure to offer a quick, affordable and delicious lunch option for our guests while still incorporating that pan-Latin Toro Toro flair," explains executive chef Eric Do.
During our visit, the buffet included a tower of delicious deviled eggs. This was our favorite part of the whole buffet. There was also tortilla española.
We craved more protein, so we wandered over to to the meat station, where you'll find unlimited offerings of picanha, chorizo, achiote chicken, and the meat of the day.
On Thursdays, Toro Toro serves glazed pork ribs. We recommend going on Wednesdays, when the restaurant proffers a tasty leg of lamb.
During our visit, side dish options included papa a la huancaína, patatas bravas, saffron rice, and kale.
