Sometimes I feel like people think South Miami is overrated. For those of us who grew up in Miami we definitely spent a lot of time wandering the floors of Sunset Place – going in and out of PacSun and Hollister. But now, there are so many awesome places to visit for a beer or maybe just some good for you food!
5831 Sunset Dr, South Miami, FL 33143
What you are getting: I stumbled in here one day, and was so happy I did when I ordered the dreamboat parfait. It had just the perfect amount of sweetness with the chia pudding, coconut and cashew cream, topped with blueberry, strawberry and candied pecan. Delicious and good for you!
7382 SW 56th Ave, Miami, FL 33143
What you are getting: You must go to Whisk for brunch! Order the eggs benedict. It comes with your grilled country ham, toasted muffin, poached eggs, hollandaise and just a touch of red pepper coulis for that extra Southern kick.
Station 5 Table & Bar
5845 Sunset Dr, South Miami, FL 33143
What you are getting: You must get the tacos. Either the braised short rib, the pulled pork or the sriracha shrimp for those that like a kick.
Buns & Buns
5748 Sunset Dr, South Miami, FL 33143
What you are getting: Make sure when you come here you aren’t on a “diet.” If it’s a nice day take a table outside and order the spinach poofs and the BBQ pulled pork sliders. The bun is so perfect you won’t want to share.
1548 S Dixie Hwy, Coral Gables, FL 33146
What you are getting: I have been eating Misha’s cupcakes for so long now I can’t tell you which one is my favorite. But, I can give you options! Right now, they have some pretty awesome seasonal flavors like banana cream pudding, pumpkin dulce de leche, and peanut butter n’ jelly. You could always go more traditional and get the guava with cream cheese, cookie dough, or vanilla.
Rok BRGR Miami
5800 SW 73rd St, South Miami, FL 33143
What you are getting: These guys make a mean burger. They have a bacon jam that comes equipped with a creamy Brie and maple bourbon bacon jam. And, they have the Cuban, which comes topped with Swiss, ropa vieja, house made pickles, crispy plantain chips, and a mojo aioli.
5701 Sunset Dr, South Miami, FL 33143
What you are getting: These guys are the originators of the Classic Southern Pizza. They pride themselves in creating a pizza crust that is half white and half whole wheat. All I can say is that the crust is out of control. And, if I were you I would order the Holy Shiitake Pie. End of story.
