Daphnie Montoya

I am a multi-cultured girl who was born in New York, raised in Singapore then officially moving to the Sunny South Florida and have been here for over 18+ years. I have lived and experience a lot all through the Tri County area from community activities to being a foodie throughout and I also have many various skills. Today I am High Rise Property Manager who happens to be a veteran in the Beauty Industry but was born and raise in the food industry sooo you see where the many skills come from. So how did I dip myself back into the food world people ask. I decided to express my love of experiencing different foods by sharing where and what to eat for all types of occasions or for just because reasons.

Ayesha Fresh Baked Cornbread with Thai Red Curry Butter. These starters will have you say WTF once you bite into it. You think you could vision the taste of the cornbread by the description on the menu but what you vision is nothing close once you bite into this warm greatness. The curry flavor was not overpowering but you can tell its a butter but the taste but in a liquid form like a sauce. The warm cornbread is perfectly baked with a very light crisp on the outside and the inside is nice and moist. This dish is able to be shared by 2-4 people, it is quite a large size cornbread.
Wagyu Shaking Beef with Gem Lettuce, Black Pepper and Nuoc Cham. This is their top selling starter and I highly recommend that you get this. The presentation is amazing as well, one plate has the Gem Lettuce with cucumber and a bowl of the Nuoc Cham which is a Vietnamese dipping sauce with a light spice kick and tartness. The Beef arrives to your table on a sizzling bowl and the server pours the sauce into the bowl and you inhale the aromas while it sizzles then they will add the fried scallots and stir it all up. Once the beef is ready, you use the lettuce to create a lettuce wrap with the beef.
Jamaican Jerk Chicken Cutlets with mango scotch bonnet pepper glaze: These chicken cutlets were perfectly breaded and was topped with the cutest crispy plantain chips, glaze and a miso sauce. The presentation was just as great as it tasted.

This was an experience like no other, I may sound like I'm bragging but it was truly a phenomenal Xperience. The entire staff from the host, to runners, servers including managers are very welcoming. Our server, Joe was fantastic, very knowledgeable about the menu, and makes the Xperience wonderful because of the fun customer service that he provides to guests. This specific International Smoke is located in the exterior commercial units of the Aventura Mall which is also perfect to spend your weekend there to enjoy their Brunch with Bottomless Mimosas in a great ambiance and with all that you can also shop at many stores before or after brunch. We were the first to eat the new burger which they will be announcing on their upcoming menu change. I know you just heard me say menu change but don't worry if it is a high demand dish they don't remove it. Some items are changed if it is no longer in season or a low demand from guests. It is awesome to know the company listens to feedback of their guests to always improve to continue to be great.

Shellfish Platter should be called a dream come true at sea. This platter includes Atlantic Oysters, Gulf Shrimp, Alaskan King Crab and Maine Lobster all perfectly smoked with a lemon wedge infused with miso to squeeze over the mouthwatering platter. This dish is highly recommended and can be shared, trust me when I say you will not regret getting this dish.

One Door East was an amazing experience from the time of arrival to the time we had to depart. Elke was present to assist us when we arrived and seated us she was amazing. Our server, Greg provided one of the best service I have had in a while. He had so much knowledge of the menu, the history of the building the restaurant was built in and the partners and chefs of One Door East. The food was beyond amazing there was not a dish that did not leave us with a wow or a huge smile. The restaurant is a global based tapas restaurant but it also touches all your senses such as the aroma of dishes, to the textures and of course the flavors all burst in your mouth. Our server asked if we had any allergies and my only allergy was alcohol so unfortunately I was unable to experience the cocktail menu or the milk served with cookies but Greg made it happen. He surprised me with a Mojito Mocktail made by the bar and also received regular milk to dip my cookies.
