If you’re looking for a cheap lunch in Miami, the Wynwood restaurant’s recently launched special offers one of the most generous and affordable options in the city.El Chinito Latino Bar, the Latin-meets-Asian establishment affiliated with the Dirty Rabbit Group (The Mad Butcher, La Tiendita), has just launched a special all-you-can-eat bento box that lets you test your hunger.

“When it comes to Chinese food, ‘all you can eat’ often takes the form of a buffet, but that’s not exactly the atmosphere we were going for here,” Carlos Torres, vice president of operations at Dirty Rabbit Group, recounts. the new era. “With this, our customers have all kinds of options for combinations in a real Chinese street food environment that makes you feel like you are in the corner of an authentic Chinatown.”
Along with the all-you-can-eat bento box, El Chinito offers unlimited fries with a Wagyu burger topped with a crunchy onion ring, cheddar cheese and spicy truffle mayo, as well as a Korean fried chicken sandwich with slaw and kimchi. Yuzu mayonnaise and maple syrup.

Torres points out that El Chinito recently launched a new festive evening, Salseame Fridays, hosted by Salseame locals Rico Miami and Andres Magia. Starting at 9 p.m., the evening includes free salsa and bachata lessons. Women get one free drink until 10pm
“Wynwood is very popular for reggaeton and late-night partying, and sometimes things can feel the same,” Torres says. “With everything we offer, our goal is to bring something completely different to the neighborhood.”
