The Dolphin outlet mall, International Mall and the recently opened IKEA are all situated at the very western edge of Miami in an area known as Doral. The Dolphin mall offers lots of interesting shopping choices, including a Bloomingdales outlet and Saks Off 5th. Good eats are also available here. Check out Texas de Brazil, an amazing steak house, that could also make a vegetarian or pescatarian swoon. IKEA opened its first Miami-Dade outpost across the street from the Dolphin mall in the summer of 2014 and Miami International Mall is a few minutes away.
