It was just a few short weeks ago that I mentioned The Salty Donut, time flies as their Pop-Up in Wynwood starts tomorrow (Wednesday).
Last week I was lucky enough to try 6 of the Donuts created by *Chef Max Santiago: Guava + Cheese, Boston Creme, Maple Bacon, Popcorn + Porter, Brown Butter + Salt & Olive Oil + Citrus.
I had to find out from one of these delivery services about the existence of Fat Moe’s and it’s right around the corner from my HQ. Upon further inspection I learn that Fat Moe’s is located inside of the Gas Station on the corner of 57th & Flagler, right across the street from El Palacio de los Jugos.
I was so excited while looking over the menu, so on my first order (which I had delivered) I chose Moe’s Legendary Burger, Moe’s World Famous Steak Sandwich, Beer Battered Onion Rings and Hot Wings. Continue reading
Truffle Lovers Burger (Gruyere Cheese, Mushrooms, Onions & House Truffle Aioli)
If you haven’t dropped in at 109 Burger Joint in a while. it might be a good time as they’ve just redone their menu. My favorites like the The Blue Moon and Truffle Lovers Burger are still on there as is their ridiculous Mac & Cheese. I’m looking forward to trying some of the new additions except the Salads….just because.

Normally I’m the one driving which makes it difficult to scope out new spots to stop & eat at. Luckily, Chunktronics was driving which meant I could sit back and enjoy the ride around Westchester. Then all of sudden I spotted out of the corner of my eye a restaurant I had never seen or noticed before, A-Mari-Mix Fresh Mex Fusion. We had just had a late lunch so it wasn’t likely we’d be stopping in just then but the next day was wide open.
I did a little bit of investigating and checked out their menu online so I’d have an idea of what it was that I was going to be eating. One thing I didn’t expect was a “Specials” board for the day but for my first time I figured I would stick to the regular menu.

“We wuv Wuv’s…and we’d love you to wuv Wuv’s with us!”
“A Fresh Idea in Fast Food”
“Get Fresh at Wuv’s”
Any of those sound familiar to you? Well, if you were around from 1976 through 1981 then there’s a pretty good chance you’ll remember Wuv’s Hamburgers.
Wuv’s was founded by Jack Penrod (Nikki Beach) who got his start in the restaurant industry at McDonald’s in 1961. At the age 20 he was the Grill Man then worked his way up to Manager and eventually the largest franchisee of McDonald’s in South Florida, 16 total.
In early 1974 Jack was making plans for his own chain of Burger restaurants to be called Wuv’s. Then, in May of 1975 the McDonald’s corporation purchased all of Jack’s stores and a few days later Wuv’s Inc was incorporated in Florida.
Wuv’s was known for their fresh never frozen Burgers, toppings bar, fresh cut Fries, Chili, Biscuits and Wuv Juice (Passion Fruit based drink) amongst other things. Continue reading
