Casabe 305 Bistro
Pictures Diego Jose Texera
Casabe is a cozy place with private parking at Coral Way. It is a very tidy place, even in full light. The subtlety of the decorations and attention are very intimate. Its menu is based on a healthy diet, with high quality organic ingredients, where the intention is to make the diners happy, evoking memories of the Venezuelan and Caribbean culture.
You can’t leave without trying the cheese sticks with guava sauce and chipotle, the empanadas with dogfish and white cheese, the colorful Yucatecan tostones with ceviche, the beans and guacamole and the explosion of tuna and onions with jasmine rice and chops.
If you want a more complex dish, it is going to be hard to choose among the churrasco, rack of lamb, quinoa, couscous, and tabbouleh liven up this party of flavors. Like any celebration, it ends with a good dessert of chocolate fondant, wasabi, and ice-cream of organic vanilla, 100% Venezuelan cocoa.
On Sundays, there is a special brunch with scrambled eggs, shredded meat, black beans, chops, avocado, grilled cheese, arepas, and cream to share with the family; and Mimosas if so you choose.
There are also other options that deserve your attention like the deviled eggs, Pabellon Criollo, and the shredded dogfish.
The most certain of this experience is that you are going to sit at the table, talk as the dishes come, and listen to what the ingredients have to say. You can’t miss it!
Diego Vicente Texera is a Venezuelan chef who has brought his passion for a healthy lifestyle and quality nutrition to Casabe 305 Bistro.
Early in his career, Diego studied Naturopathy at the Kushi Institute in Boston (former East West Institute) In 1971, he returned to Venezuela and opened the “Zen-tro Macrobiótico.” Over time, he opened “Naturalia,” 28 stores of natural food in Venezuela and Puerto Rico. One of them had its restaurant where Diego reborn.
After many years, he returned once more to Venezuela. This time he settled in a small colonial fishing village named Choroní, the birthplace of the original “Casabe.” It was a precious village, surrounded by a tropical rainforest at a short distance of the Caribbean Sea. In his restaurant, the waiting list for tasting 7 of his dishes was about six months. Unfortunately, Diego had to sell his creation due to the crisis in Venezuela. He also had to find a new place to Casabe…and in 2012, he opened Casabe 305 Bistro in Miami. A place that embraces the cultural diversity of the city, but always staying true to his Venezuelan roots.
