Hidden Gems in BR


So, I posted previously we're doing a Food and Drink web series, and we're starting to plan season 2 right now.

What hidden gems should we include?

I drive by La Reyna all the time, but I've never gone in. What should I order?

I don't know if Zeeland is a hidden gem, but their Acadian sandwich (pot roast, bacon, cheddar) is the best sandwich in the city.

Would Pocorello's be considered a hidden gem or do most people know about it?

Yeah, this is the 3rd or 4th time I've heard La Reyna. I've also heard the same people say they don't want to see what happens in the kitchen, so I'm torn.

This is for 225 magazine's web series: "Into the mix" ( LINK)

Yeah...pretty legit place.

The other one on Siegen over by Office Depot is pretty good too. It is called Taqueria La Mexicana.

It's just a restaurant, not the Thunderdome.
