I would consider myself to be a local when it comes to Miami. I moved here when I was 4 years old, so I was pretty much raised here. So when I decided to go on a food tour of South Beach this past weekend, I did not think that there was much that could be taught to me about the area, let alone the food scene. I’m usually the one that helps other people find good eats, so when I was told about the whole concept of the tour and how we would taste things from different destinations, I did not expect any surprises. Little did I know, that even though this tour is meant to show tourists what Miami is all about, it is definitely worth it for a local to go experience it as well. I left the tour with a new appreciation of what the city has to offer and even got to add a few places to my repertoire of where I can munch on when hanging down in the Deco area.
The tour began with The Angler hotel as a rendezvous point, where Anna, the tour guide, very graciously introduced herself and asked everyone else to do the same. Once everyone got acquainted, Anna explained the whole purpose of the tour and began building anticipation by telling us what was in store for the day but did not reveal exactly what we would be doing. For example, she would tell us what we would be eating but not where or she would tell us that we would be getting a little treat from a certain place but would leave the “treat” as a surprise. As she was speaking, the employees of the hotel brought out an upscale take on a Hispanic classic. Short –rib empanadas were brought out with an accompaniment of a chili sauce, which paired well with the appetizer. The slight spiciness of the sauce countered the fried dough and richness of the meat within the crust.
Next, we headed to Bolivar, a Latin restaurant where we got to try a Colombian drink called refajo, which is sort of like a mix of beer and cream soda. Being Colombian, I was very appreciative that food and drinks from my hometown were being represented in this tour. The facts given by the tour guide were very accurate and she was educated in the food and drinks being offered. In this restaurant, we got to sample a papa rellena, wish is a mashed potato fritter filled with meat and spices. Along with this sample came a ceviche, which was made from swai and acidic fruits. Although the typical ceviche is usually cooked using acid from citruses such as lemon and orange, this particular restaurant made theirs with passion fruit. This change was very welcomed among the group, since it added a sweetness to the dish that made it more appealing to people trying ceviche for the first time. I appreciated the fact that the tour was offering more modern and fun takes on classic dishes since this is a way of representing what Miami is all about. We get things that are typical throughout the country but add our own Hispanic twist to it, so the fact that this was represented in the tour was very appealing. One of the treats we got to try came from an Argentinian/Uruguyan bakery called Manolo. Here, we sampled a Dulce de Leche filled churro. The churro was perfectly fried and covered in sugar and very minimal salt. The salt accentuated the sweetness from the other ingredients and made it palatable and not too overbearing.
At this point, we took a break from food and walked over to Ocean Drive, where the tour guide gave us information on what Art Deco was and showed us some examples. Anna was very informed and made sure that everyone understood the history of the area. Even as a person who has lived here most of their lives, I learned many new things in this portion of the tour. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and funny when she had to be. She highlighted the quirkiness of what Miami beach is by pointing out how some of the locals behaved. She did this is a manner where people understood what makes Miami Beach such a fun place to explore.
At this point, we went back to the food portion of the tour by heading over to David’s Café for a quick cafecito stop. We stopped at the window to order, and the fact that we got to do what locals do was good to see and experience. It made the tourists in the group feel welcome in the city and provided them with an idea of what a typical day for a local is. We then headed to Polo Norte to try some Cuban food. Here we got Vaca Frita sliders drenched in chimichurri with a large plate of plantain chips to share. One of my favorite parts of the tour occurred here, since by this point the group was starting to feel comfortable with each other. The plate of chips was placed in the center of the table for everyone to share and the sliders also came in groups of three. The fact that it is sort of a communal activity was something I enjoyed since it showed the hospitality of the people of this wonderful city. Next came a delicious pizza pocket from a place I had never been to before. Blocs Pizza is a destination that I am sure I will return to, since this was a new place for me. It served extremely good food, and although not Hispanic, it is a nice hole in the wall type of place that I am surprised I discovered through a tour. It was definitely impressive. We finished the tour at Milani Gelateria, where Anna again explained what we were having and surprised me with her knowledge about the difference between gelato and regular ice cream. Just like everything else in the tour, the gelato was of very high quality and did not disappoint.
Overall, this tour was one I would not mind taking again. The food was plentiful and incredible (especially the ceviche, churro, and pizza pocket), the tour guide was charming and educated, I met wonderful people, and it was a blast. I have no issues with recommending this to anyone, even if you are a local. You will leave with a new appreciation of the South Beach area, and you may even leave with a new favorite restaurant in the city.

The Fine Beverage, Chocolate and Food Show, which took place in the picturesque Pinecrest Gardens during March 9 and 10, was an event where artisanal food, chocolate, and beverage vendors exhibited their products and got the chance to promote their business to the attendees. Besides that, there was an added section to the event that included vendors dealing with cigars. I got the chance to attend this event and was surprised to discover some artisan vendors that I had no idea were part of the Miami food scene. Although there were some vendors that I recognized from events such as farmers markets and food truck gatherings, there were others that were completely new to me.
Most vendors were giving small samples of what they were offering, but I saw this mostly with the beverage section of the show. Although some food vendors offered samples, it was less frequent. Nonetheless, everything I sampled was impressively prepared. Besides that, I got the chance to make my way from stand to stand and meet some of the vendors. You could tell that they were all proud to be exhibiting their products and they were extremely educated and professional when it came to dealing with people walking up to their stands. No one was pushy to the point of it getting obnoxious and you could tell that the vendors were genuinely interested in just getting the word out about their products.
One of the things I enjoyed most about the show was the fact that the people attending had free access to watching all seminars and live demonstrations. I got to witness some demonstrations being made by some chefs promoting their products and they were all educational, informative, and entertaining to watch. Not once during the show did I get bored or feel like it was just someone trying to sell me his or her product. The audience was allowed to ask questions and everyone was extremely helpful.
Besides the vendors, there were a couple of food trucks next to the beverage section of the show providing their services to the attendees. The lines never got too long and everyone seemed to be having a great time. There were beverage stations placed throughout the whole event and entertainment was always available. I would not hesitate in going back to an event such as these in the future. It provided me with a broader overview of some of the artisanal vendors that can be found in the city, and the fact that these companies were allowed to get some exposure is more than enough reason to support shows such as this one. These are the types of businesses that can drive Miami to be a better city, and I was glad to see how they became more known in the public eye.

When I’m in the mood for Cuban food, Polo Norte is one of the places I’m bound to go to. Although there are a couple of other restaurants that I prefer for this type of cuisine, this place provides a good representation of what an experience at a Cuban restaurant should be. The ambiance is very homey, the service is most likely going to be given by Spanish-speaking servers, and the food is plentiful, rib-sticking, and extremely satisfying.
My favorite thing on the menu is the Croqueta Preparada sandwich (which I’ll talk about on another day), but on this particular visit I was more in the mood for a home-style meal. This time around, I chose the Milanesa de Pollo. This dish is composed of a breaded chicken breast topped with marinara sauce, ham, and cheese. The chicken itself is perfectly seasoned and the breading stays crunchy even though there is marinara sauce topping it. The sauce is applied sparingly and the sweetness coming from it is a nice change of pace coming from the saltiness of the ham and chewy texture of the cheese. The cheese itself is not the most flavorful, but it sort of acts as a glue that keeps all the ingredients together. It is a wonderful dish that is only made better by the serving size. All entrees come with two sides, and I chose moros (rice and beans) and yucca with mojo (cassava with marinade). The moros tasted heavy of bay leaf and cumin with a richness coming from pork fat. The yucca could have been better, as I found them to be boiled to a point of having an extremely mushy texture.
I also had the chance to taste a half ham and pineapple/half Italian sausage and pineapple Cuban pizza. I admit that I am not the biggest fan of Cuban pizza, as I always find it to be extremely bready, but Polo Norte makes the best one that I have tried. Sadly, on this particular visit, my experience with the pizza was not as good as previous times. I do not think that the pizza was baked long enough, as the crust tasted more like soft bread than pizza crust and the toppings were applied too generously (if that’s even possible). There was too much sauce, which is very good when used in the right amount. Because so much was used this time, the pizza tasted way too sweet and made it a bit hard to enjoy the other toppings. On top of that, the person preparing the pizza placed way too much ham on it. I have never seen so much ham on a pizza. I know for a fact that this pizza would have been more enjoyable if it was more proportional in toppings because I have had it prepared correctly before, but if there were my only experience with this particular dish, I would not suggest it.
For dessert, I got the Molten Chocolate cake with a scoop of Coconut Almond Ice Cream and topped with cookie crumbs. This version of the classic dessert was just as good as you would expect. The star of the dessert was the ice cream, as there were pieces of slivered almond found throughout it. This texture, plus the taste and creaminess of the coconut found in the ice cream base provided a nice change of pace to the warm and rich ice cream.
Polo Norte is a very affordable restaurant where you feel as though you’re eating in a Cuban grandmother’s kitchen. Although, there can be some problems with consistency on certain dishes, there are others that have been executed well every time I have gone. Like I mentioned previously, this is a restaurant I visit on a regular basis, so I have no problems with suggesting it.

Before you arrived, the pizza in Midtown sucked. I remember the days when Primo Pizza was here and although it was good at the beginning, they went down like the Titanic and they finally silently split from the neighborhood as if they were ashamed of their legacy. You probably took your parmesan and oregano shakers in the middle of the night because the next day you were out. I don’t miss them. Then, a new “I love NY something pizzeria…” which gives pizza a bad name took over the space. Then, a few blocks away, you arrived. Thank you.
Let’s start by talking about your staff. They are so well trained, not sure if you copied the model from Starbucks or the girl at the cashier is on something, but who cares. She should win a medal for “Miami service; as good as it gets.” Seriously, she is adorable and not sure if she cares much, but she surely makes you feel like she does.
On Fridays I usually order over the phone and then go to pick it up. I do not like your location with that annoying loud music from Lime plus your lightning inside is a little bit too bright for me. I am not 20 any more so light makes all the difference – and I do not like to wear my Ray-Ban glasses at night. I usually order the margarita pizza or the 4 cheese pizza. By the way, if you call or eat there at 5:30 PM everyday, the margarita pizza is $5.5. You won’t be able to get a lemonade for that money here in Midtown so I say splurge a little and take advantage. If you want to pay 4 times more because you are all about throwing around celebrity chef names to your “friends” in Brickell, then go to Harry’s Pizzeria which is a few blocks away. Trust me, Harry’s is going down lately or the guy making the pizzas probably missed the training. Your call.
At Spris, the pizza crust is thin, delicious and the cheese amount is fair enough for the price. Actually, more than fair, the cheese is the perfect balance between dough and topping ratio. They bake it to perfection. Now, they are small or I can eat a lot, either or, make sure to order more than one. I usually order one for the road (3 blocks) and one for home.

LoKal Burgers and Beer is a restaurant that opened in Coconut Grove on 2011. This restaurant brings a concept to the neighborhood that is appealing to all ages and people of different interests. By this I mean that people interested in food will find very surprising dishes on the menu while people interested in beer will find what is probably the best beer selection in all of South Florida. Matthew Kuscher, the owner, originally opened up his business under the concept that he would provide the South Florida area with very sustainable food at a price that would be affordable to anyone. His mentality is that a person should not have to pay premium prices for premium food and quality. Although the word “burgers” is in the name, the concept is to provide all types of sustainable food that is as local as possible to customers, which should link them to the community and bring a sense of pride and joy to Miami. In this aspect, Matthew is succeeding since all his vegetables come from farms in Homestead, all his beef and proteins comes from Florida farms and businesses, and his bread is made in South Floridian bakeries. The fact that he is helping other local businesses and that they are helping him is something that builds a sense of community between the food industries in the city. Matthew also makes sure that everything in his business is recycled and tries his hardest to be as sustainable as possible with it comes to decorating and building his business. On top of that, the whole restaurant runs on sustainable energy. The concept that Matthew is employing at his business is something that other restaurants in the city should try to mirror, since it would steer the Miami area in the right direction when it comes to dealing with what we eat.
Every item that I have tried at LoKal has been very well prepared and absolutely delicious. Throughout multiple visits I’ve gotten to try some of their more popular offerings, such as the Frita by Kush. This burger is very well thought out, as it takes inspiration from a pastry that is very dear to the people of Miami. The flavors of a guava and cheese pastelito are mimicked in this burger by topping a patty with guava paste, Gruyere cheese, bacon, and potato sticks between a challah bun. The salty and smoky bacon accentuates the savory profile of the beef. The potato sticks add crunch and texture to the whole package while the guava paste is there to provide sweetness that immediately reminds a person of the Cuban treat. The cheese holds everything together and the richness coming from it is perfect, as it does not overpower any of the other toppings. This burger is my personal favorite at this restaurant and one I highly recommend.
On the menu, you’ll also find something for people feeling more indulgent. The My Childhood Dream burger is Matthew’s take on the Luther Burger (patty between donuts instead of buns). This burger is as sinfully delicious as it sounds, and you are even given the option of adding a fried egg to the combination, because why not. Although I wouldn’t get this selection everyday, I have tried it before and recommend it to the person looking for a fun and different experience.
If I didn’t talk about the sides and sauces at this restaurant, I’d be doing you a great disservice. All the sauces (ranging from honey mustard, to ketchup, to bbq sauce) are made in house using local ingredients and are some of the best in the city. The sides are expertly prepared as well. I usually go for a combination of regular French fries and sweet potato fries. Just tell your server you want 50/50 fries when they ask you for your side. If you’re not in the fry mood, I highly recommend the cole slaw, as it is very refreshing, crunchy, and very satisfying.
Overall, this is a restaurant that should on everyone’s radar. The fun atmosphere, along with the concept of bringing sustainable food to the city should be enough to draw all types of people in. The fact that the beer selection is so great is only a benefit, since you will find some beers here that you won’t find anywhere else. I am a fan and I know that if you come, you will become one too.

Black Brick restaurant in Midtown opened just a few months ago. And of course I gave it a try more than once by now. As I live in the neighborhood is easy at lunch to just get tempted around here and I’m sure everyone on my building is happy to see new restaurant options. Who can take Mercadito and Sugarcane all the time?
Right next to Salumeria, which should be a tough competitor for any restaurant to open right next door. Well, I’m not saying Salumeria is the best Italian restaurant in Miami, I would say is not the best place for much but hey, my Italians know how to cook a pasta dish…
The chef from Black Brick restaurant is not new to the neighborhood, with Sakaya kitchen opened for years now across the street from Salumeria, and having faithful followers, this chef knows the dynamics of Midtown.
Lets get to Black Brick and let me take a breathe. First time; amazing. Second time; great. Third time; the octopus serving changed, the fried rice not the same.
Now I like this chef and I want to like his food even more. I like local chefs who walk around the neighborhood with their families; wife and children, but give me the octopus back please, the same way you did it the first week you opened.
I have been at this restaurant at least 5 times since they opened. The one dish that did not let me down are the fried dumplings. The crunch is worth the visit and having the wine on non-stem glasses (I hate that Black Brick). They are juicy on the inside and crunchy on the outside. They are a bowl of happiness I hope won’t change the next time I sit for lunch by myself and blog about it on my phone.

I do not care much for their fancy tiny plates of overpriced pasta to be honest with you. I think it is extremely hipped for what they serve. Don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t taste bad, but I don’t eat like a bird (unfortunately), and if I am asked to pay for a dish more than $20, I expect to leave happy. Here, I never did.
Oh and also, I HATE when fancy, overpriced restaurants have a “happy hour” and they don’t include their wines on the list. Bocce, there is nothing “happy” about your happy hour. Why is that you have amazing wines on your wine list and you offer a crappy wine on your happy hour menu? That is like me telling people “Get 50% OFF the Wynwood Art District Food Tour” and then cutting the food in half, is like you don’t do that to the community that supports you.
People like me and Paul will go to your happy hour if there is a real value to it, but unfortunately we left very unhappy last time and promised each other not to return.
Well let’s get to the positive part of this review. People probably think I am crazy at restaurants, at least the ones closed to my apartment in Midtown. Sometimes I think that when waiters see me coming they go like “oh gee, here she comes again, the crazy food lady from Miami Culinary Tours” but I really don’t care. If I pay the salty prices here around this neighborhood, I expect not to get food screwed.
The desserts at Bocce are FANTASTIC. Every time I went in there, I walk straight to the kitchen area and with my loud voice and thick accent I say “is the genius in the house today?” He is the only one making me come back here. He is a relatively young guy, don’t know his name but I like him. His desserts are some of the best I have ever tried. Plus they are as visually appealing (food is art). I crave his desserts often and it is a dangerous zone for me on Friday nights. The last time I was there I tried the pistachio polenta cake with sweet cherries and cream. It was worth the calories. There is a cannoli dessert that should win an oscar. He also has on the menu a chocolate cake that I take home once in a while that I should recommend you eat before you die at least once.

Korean restaurants are far and few here in Miami. So I did a bit of research and I checked out Yukihana, a small Japanese and Korean restaurant out in the area of Doral, right next to Walmart. I am not familiar at all with Korean cuisine, and felt a little intimidated with the menu, so I stuck to chili fried chicken, and bulgogi, a common Korean dish which is simply marinated skirt steak.
The waitress first served me what seemed to be an assortment of pickled side dishes such as kimchi, bean sprouts, jalapenos, and broccoli to accompany the bulgogi. Like I said, I am not too sure about how and what the food is going to be like, but I braced myself and tried the safest thing. The bean sprouts were good; nothing too crazy, but they did have a kick. The same thing with the kimchi; it was like a plain tasting cabbage but with some kind of spicy added to it. The spice was not overwhelming at all.
Both the chili fried chicken and the bulgogi were served with a bowl of white rice; portions were very generous.
Then came the chili fried chicken came, and it had a nice sweet-spicy flavor to it. The chicken was very crispy, and the sauce was a sticky-spicy concoction with bits of crushed dried chili. But I wished there was more of the chili sauce, as I felt the chicken was slightly dry without it.
Next, the bulgogi was pretty good. If you’re wondering, this restaurant does offer cooking Korean bbq at your own table, but in this case, I just wanted the food already cooked for me. They served the bulgogi with onions and sesame seeds. The smokiness of the steak cooked on the hibachi grill was apparent. The portion serving was very decent for it’s price ($14.75).
Lastly, I tried the thai donuts. Yukihana offers it with either chocolate, vanilla, or green tea ice cream, and drizzled with condensed milk and powdered sugar. Yum, indubitably. The thai donuts were my favorite part of the visit to Yukihana.
Overall, the food was not bad, but not amazing.My only complaint was that they have the restaurant listed to close on Saturdays at 11pm, but upon arriving at 9pm, they seemed to pressure us to eat fast so they can close up early.
I would come back for those thai donuts, though.
