Corinto Restaurant is located in that strange pointy shaped building on Dixie Hwy at Prospect Road in Oakland Park, FL. You know the one with the ‘A’ frame roof and all the windows? We finally stopped in for breakfast recently and found a cool little local spot offering comfort food and Latin cuisine.
We beat the crowd and got seated right away. The inside is clean and consists of all table seating with emerald green table cloths and wooden chairs. They do a brisk take out service here and we could see orders lined up at the front counter. You can also see into the kitchen a bit as they seem to take advantage of every space in the small unique building.
The breakfast menu has your regular favorites here from eggs, French toast, pancakes and omelets. Our server was friendly and working solo and kept the dining room running along well. The kitchen seemed to be a little behind as it took our breakfast maybe 25 minutes, but not that big of a deal since we were relaxing.
222 ($5.95) – 2 French Toast, 2 eggs and 2 bacon. While French Toast is a rare item for Jeff to order, he liked it here. The powdered sugar was the perfect finishing touch. The bacon had flavor, but was oddly pale in color and also a bit thin. The eggs were fresh and cooked as ordered.
The star of Jeff’s breakfast was their house made hot sauce. This alone gave Jeff the motivation to want to return again for a lunch review. And according to the waitress, they even have the sauce available for purchase.
2 Eggs over hard with bacon and hash browns ($4.95). The same bacon was used on my order and even looking at the pictures we took it looks pale. The hash browns were the patty variety (the server did let me know when I chose them over hash browns) and I found them a bit too greasy. Stick with the home fries and you will probably be happier. The price was actually quite low for this plate of food too.
We liked our visit to Corinto Restaurant and would stop in for breakfast again sometime. We definitely want to make it in for lunch to try some of the Latin specialties, especially if the hot sauce is any indication on the quality and flavor.
