Be careful when entering Hokasan into your GPS or ride-share app, though. It might think you want to go to Hakkasan, the fancy Cantonese restaurant at the Fontainebleau. You do not. You want to go to Hokasan in Brickell and get some of the best dumplings in Miami. The steamed dumplings are fat and hot, and the pan-fried dumplings have a perfect, thin crisp on the bottom. Stick to the dim sum chunk of the menu, and get something with the word “spicy” in it if you want your mouth to lightly burn the whole ride home.
Hokasan is permanently closed.
