Unless you live in Key Biscayne (KB) or you visit someone who lives in KB, chances are you might drive towards KB but probably stop and park by the long, sandy, expanse  of beach to enjoy the wave-less, wading waters or Biscayne Bay’s water activities.  However keep on driving and venture into the Village of Key Biscayne and you’ll find an island packed with wealthy South Americans who enjoy comfort, tasty restaurants and crafty shops.

 

 

One of the latest eateries to establish themselves on the Key is Kazumi.  It’s a smallish Japanese restaurant that prides itself on fresh ingredients and flavorful dishes.  In all truthfulness, I’ve only been there once and just for lunch.  However, my one time visit there proved to be delicious.  Four of us sampled the daily $10 Bento Boxes and they were…versatile and mouth- watering.  Then mid-day Bento Box is only available during lunch time and offers an inexpensive meal that the restaurant hopes will reel in clients for the pricier night time menu.

 

Besides the lunchtime soups and salads, all priced under $10, the Bento Boxes offer a spectrum of dishes that excite the taste buds.

 

Bento One includes edamame, California roll (4 pieces), beef yakitori and a sampling of the chef’s salad for $10.  Bento Two presents Chicken Katzu, miso soup, house salad and white rice.  Bento Three offers a seaweed salad with a spicy tuna roll (4 pieces), honey shrimp and gyoz-as.  Bento Four consists of fried rice, spicy crab hand-roll, tempura veggies and miso soup.  Bento Deluxe One will have your taste buds enjoying a white fish ceviche, house salad and two Nigiri or sashimi selections with edamame.  There’s much more about their super affordable lunches but shouldn’t you just check it all out for yourselves?
