Mina’s Mediterraneo: A 79th Street Favorite

Mina's Mediterraneo - Inside

We don’t usually head up to North Miami, but a Flywheel class was calling our name and we have to maintain these bodacious blogger bods somehow. Fortunately, the Flywheel gym is in the same shopping center as Oishi Thai, so we headed right over with fellow foodies after our fun exercise session.
