Bee­hive Kitchen – 6312 N. An­drews Ave., Fort Lauderdale, 954-541-8787. The bowl craze tak­ing flight at many fast ca­sual eater­ies is also abuzz at Bee­hive, where qual­ity in­gre­di­ents with global in­flu­ences and bold sea­son­ing make for very sat­is­fy­ing meals. Or­der­ing can be con­fus­ing with all the op­tions. The sweet potato glass noo­dles with shred­ded pork is ex­cel­lent. In­ex­pen­sive. Lunch, din­ner. Re­viewed 7-26-17.
