Taste of the Town

On a recent trip to South Florida we did a Culinary Tour of South Beach in Miami.  Known for its many colorful, chic and exotic dining choices, its hard to know what to try.  The Miami Culinary Tour proven a great solution.

Bolivar Restaurant

Cuban Coffee

All total we made 8 stops where we sampled everything from scallops to Colombian chicken.  We visited Larios on the Beach, a restaurant owned by the singer Gloria Estefan serving “Old Clothes”, traditional shredded Cuban beef, rice and beans, plantains. There were French ham and cheese sandwiches, Cuban coffee, specialty cookies, bubble tea and delicious gelato.

The bites were generous and on the stroll from place to place Mirka provided a bit of history.  We got to appreciate the food, architecture and culture of this unique area.

Miami Culinary ToursWell-organized and nicely paced – each restaurant was ready and expecting us.  At the end we were given a list of the places we visited to make it easy to return on our own.

It was such a great experience that I look forward to trying the Little Havana tour as well.

It also prompted me to look for culinary tours in other cities.  Have family visiting for the holidays?  Seattle offers a similar dine around tour.  Chicago, San Francisco offer several and other major cities do as well.  We’re scheduling one in Scottsdale while visiting my sister and her family over Christmas.  I’m getting hungry just thinking about it!  Bon appetit!
