A culinary tour of Wynwood covering food and art

The same group of passionate foodies who brought you the South Beach Food Tour and Little Havana Food Tour have launched the Wynwood Food Tour. Stroll through the vibrant neighborhood of Wynwood learning how the area came to be, admire countless works of art and eat your way through it all. In a few hours you’ll visit up to seven different restaurants, making it the most unique and only dining experience in the area. Meet chefs who will explain their savory dishes, discover hidden shopping and gallery gems and even catch a few artists working on their street murals.

The Wynwood Food Tour stops at Wynwood Kitchen & Bar, located at 2550 NW 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33127, where guests will have a juicy empanada with a side of creamy cilantro sauce and sweet, fried plantains sprinkled with cheese. The tour will then visit The Butcher Shop, located at 165 NW 23rd St, Miami, FL, where a beautifully presented cone filled with a variety of seven cold meats ranging from a smoked polish kielbasa to peppered salami will be served accompanied by a dark, Russian beer with notes of chocolate and espresso. The next stop is as Jimmy’z Kitchen, located at 2700 N Miami Ave, Miami, FL 33127, where guests will enjoy a traditional Puerto Rican dish, the chicken mofongo – composed of mashed, fried green plantains, garlic, olive oil, crunchy pork rinds, and chicken. Across the street you’ll find the newest addition to Wynwood, SuViche, located at 2751 N Miami Ave, Miami, FL 33127, where a spicy Japanese-Peruvian fusion causa will be served. Cross back over to the west side of N Miami Ave to Pride & Joy, located at 2800 N Miami Ave, Miami, FL 33127. This stop will serve the most divine deviled eggs topped with tender pulled pork. Room for dessert? Great! The final stop at the Wynwood Food Tour is at the hidden location of Fireman Derek’s World Famous Pies, 2600 N. Miami Ave Miami, FL 33127, where guests will take delight in the perfect ending to a food tour – a creamy, decadent and chilled key lime pie.
