Over the weekend I helped celebrate Yelp’s 10th year anniversary at the Yelpies at the Coral Gables Museum. I have been part of the Yelp community for a while so it was really cool to get together with other Miami foodies just like me. While I was there I obviously tried to eat as much as my stomach would allow and I want to share with you a few of my favorite spots.
1. Robeks: I know we are all on the diet trend, right? Aren’t we always? I don't eat raw kale on its own but when it is mixed with other veggies and fruits I dig it. They were serving up a smoothie with kale, pineapple, papaya, and coconut water to bring it all together. I could and would drink this everyday if they had a store near me.
2. Wynwood Brewing Company: They were serving two of their beers – La Rubia and the Pop’s Porter. I have to admit that I am still not a huge fan of dark beers so I gravitated more towards La Rubia, which is actually the lightest beer they brew. I really loved it because it wasn't too bitter and full of sweet flavor.
3. TK’s: I love sweets, and when their head chef gave me their tres leches cheesecake to try I literally died and went to heaven. I probably ate it a little to fast, but wow it was honestly out of this world. Everything about it was perfect.
4. SpecialTEA: Anything and everything is really good when you go to SpecialTEA. One of my favorite things (you know I love sweets) are their cookies. I will drive 30 minutes just for their cookies. Not only were they serving their crème brulee ice coffee but they were given out chocolate chip cookies that melted in your mouth – I took a few, I will admit.
5. Swine: I am normally not into having fruit as part of as part of a “meal” per say, unless it’s dessert, but I decided to try their prochetta with watermelon and it was surprisingly delicious! This isn’t something I would usually choose as an appetizer at a restaurant, but I am really glad I tried it because now I might!
6. Jimmy Z: Who doesn't love cheese? Let me ask a better question. Who doesn't love fried cheese? They were serving on a platter these heavenly fried cheese balls that were so delicious! Can’t wait to check this place out and try their mofongo – that’s what they are known for.
7. La Mexicana Cantina & Grill: One of my last stops of the night was to their booth, and boy am I glad I stopped by. They were giving out two flour tortillas with shredded meat and chicken. Real authentic Mexican food.
