Try Meyer's Latin Bistro

If you like your fish a little spicy, you'll want to try Meyer's Latin Bistro. Meyer's Latin Bistro was previously known as Meyer's Latin Flair in Jacksonville, Florida. You'll now find them at 2528 N University Drive, Coral Springs, FL 33065. Their telephone number is 954-780-9150. Check out their website at

Please read on to learn more about the heritage of Meyer's Latin Bistro ... Meyer Pinchssow is still serving up that spicy Latin food, but how it is a bit of a drive from Jacksonville, Florida!!

My experience with the tasty Latin food of Meyer Pinchssow! We had a most delicious dinner last night and I promised the chef and owner Meyer Pinchssow that I would be writing about it today! So, that's what I'm doing -- writing to tell you about this fabulous cafe known as Meyer's Latin Flair. It's located at 9041 Southside Blvd. just north of The Avenues Mall.

This was not our first visit as we've been there quite a few times. Normally I order the same item every time I eat there -- Spicy Fish -- Pescado Picante, which is a fresh fillet of fish topped with homemade creamy rocoto (hot pepper) sauce. That was what hubby ordered with two etceteras -- black beans and yellow rice. When Meyer told me he could give me that creamy rocoto sauce on another entree, I opted to have the Macho Fish -- Pescado a Lo Macho. That's fresh fillet of fish normally topped with special homemade creole sauce with mixed seafood of shrimp, calamari, scallops and mussels. There was a hint of garlic in the creamy rocoto sauce that topped my Macho Fish -- let me tell you, the taste was so incredible that I can use this often over-used expression: it was TO DIE FOR!

I asked Meyer what were his suggestions as the 2 etceteras. He recommended tostones and fried yuca. OMG, the friend yuca was outstanding and of course so were the tostones. Some of the other etceteras are corn cake (arepa), red beans, and sweet plantains.

As our drink item, we opted for a bottle of Coperidge White Zinfandel which was personally opened by the chef himself. To top off this excellent meal, the chef surprised us with a chocolate cake like mousse, that was sinful it was so good, with a side of vanilla ice cream.

So, if you live in or near Jacksonville, FL, you owe it to yourself to make a trip to this fine eatery! FYI, there was a table of patrons who were from Miami, FL. They said this was the most flavorful Latin meal they had anyplace other than Miami! Wow -- that's quite a testament.

P.S. This fabulous restaurant closed a few years back. I do believe they moved on to South Florida. I've been trying to find out where they went. It was good while it lasted!
