Eats for Under $7: Rice Balls and Spinach Rolls at Carini's
You'll have to do a little ordering at Carini's to get a filling "meal" for under $7, but it's worth the effort. Carini's is a New York-style pizza joint on Federal Highway in Hallandale Beach worth visiting for the cheap appetizers alone. The mini rice balls (which are about the size of an apricot) are stuffed with cheese and beef before being battered and fried. The result is stunning: a light and crispy outside with soft gooey cheese-infused rice on the inside. If you tire of the rice balls before you're full, switch to the mini spinach rolls. It's pizza dough stuffed with spinach and cheese and topped with poppy seeds and garlic butter, then rolled cinnamon-bun style and baked to a golden brown. Four rice balls and four spinach rolls come out to just six dollars and should keep you satiated until you're ready to come back with a few more dollars to try the pizza.
Carini's Pizza & Pasta is located at 814 N. Federal Hwy. in Hallandale Beach. Call 954-457-4444.
