Although Fireman Derek only recently opened his official storefront, Miami has been fortunate enough to have access to his desserts for a couple of years. Before having an actual restaurant, Derek’s creations have been available at wholesale locations and through his foodtruck. Whether it be his chocolate dipped flan or his array of pies (which include selections ranging from Key lime, to cherry, to apple), you cannot go wrong with ending your night at this bakery. Our personal favorite is Derek’s Key Lime Pie, as it is a spot on rendition of South Florida’s favorite dessert. It is tart, rich, and creamy, practically becoming a textbook example of what Key lime pie should taste like.
Where to try it: Fireman Derek’s World Famous Pies. 2600 North Miami Avenue, Miami, FL 33137. (786) 449-2517
