Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Burger Beast Events, Burger Beast Feasts, News

Croquetapalooza and Frita Showdown came about when I was thinking about not only creating a very “Only in Miami” kinda event. All the food, music and decor revolve around my upbringing in a Cuban household with my maternal grandparents, my parents and my sister. It was important that this event was right on the money since […]

Chicken Tenders, A Love Affair

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Stuff and Things

I remember when you were looked at with a sour face if you ordered Chicken Tenders or Chicken Strips at a restaurant. Mostly I would get the “that’s for kids” isn’t it? It’s not like it stopped me but luckily, we now happen to be in a Chicken Tender period of renaissance. Chicken Tenders aren’t […]

A little over 7 years ago I visited a food truck called Latin House Grill. I was instantly enamored with their food and two years later they opened their first full fledged restaurant, Latin House.

My family tries to hit up Marco Island for a week every summer. We go into hiding and spend our days obsessing over where to eat. I’m usually the first one to wake up so I’m the one out there looking for the breakfast goods. I’m currently on a bagel kick so Empire Bagel Factory […]

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in News

Let’s get this out of the way first, I love Arbetter’s. Arbetter’s opened up in 1959 on Flagler then moved 8th Street and 58th Avenue (sharing a space with a Dairy Queen). A second location came later in 1963 at a former Dairy Queen (9000 Bird Road) spot down the street from its current and […]

It’s been quite a while, almost 5 years since the Burger Beast blog wrote about Tio Colo’s Bocaditos de Helado (Ice Cream Sandwiches). In that time, they’ve expanded from only selling those little addictive Bocaditos de Helado to adding Pizza Cubana to their food arsenal. If you think it doesn’t get any better than those […]
