I am starting to discover my perfect place, the one that shows up on my dream – that perfect quick bite place, oh gee, the two times I have been in Sugarcane in Midtown Miami, the experience has been perfect! (it’s such a refreshing surprise to find a smooth experience in Miami), and when I find it, I just fall inlove (I know, it’s weird). So I walk in this beautiful day in midtown Miami (perfect weather, blue sky, a bit chilly, people are smiling). As soon as I walk in Sugarcane, the hostess – which by the way not only she is gorgeous but professional, friendly , and accommodating. I get quickly seated I a perfect spot (all around this place is a perfect spot – good interior design layout).
Love it when the waiter comes quickly to acknowledge your existence. After all I am the one paying for his/her bills (I know this first hand – I have been a waitress all throughout college so don’t judge me for the comment).
I have been offered at Sugarcane their house filtered water, I think it is $2 for it, mhh, you are not going to sell me house filtered water for that price, so I answered “TAB water” when got the water question asked.
The waitress is smiling, attentive and quick, not too pushy, not too “hi I am here, I want to be your friend forever” – she is just very well trained. I say “very well trained” because I do nto think anyone is born with serving talents =) plus she is young, maybe 24? – at this age either you are told how to provide superb service or it is just not there.
Okay, I need to get to the food part of this post cause I feel I am loosing you. I ordered the Brussels sprouts with orange and sweet soy. Oh gee (by the way, I am blogging and sitting at the restaurant right now). I have to stop writing – I am having a moment. Okay, I am back from food heaven. These are the best brussels sprouts I have EVER had. Where to start telling ?! crispy all in the right places, roasted to perfection. There are perfectly cut squares of orange in it which gives a superb acidic yet sweet kick and the sweet soy is to – well, I pretty much would have a barrel of this sweet soy sauce and chug it down right here, right now – I do not care who is looking!
Then the daily flatbread arrives (total surprise as the ingredients are not described in the menu), but I am feeling positive so I go with it. (hold on again, I am coming back from this delirious , delicious flatbread). Oh my, so flavorful, roasted onions, delicate mini urugula leafs, salted and peppered to PERFECTION. Covered with a cheese that melts in your mouth even after it got cold because I am writing, taking photos, shooting the video – but when I went back to the dish, the same flavors remaind.
Side notes. I needed access to the internet, the floor manager quickly gave me the password – now, that’s nice.
