In a city where it seems hype goes a lot farther than substance, it’s great to run into the real deal. Chef Jeremiah and his gastroPod Mobile Gourmet seem on their way to unleashing a whole bunch of awesome stuff Miami’s way. I became familiar with Chef Jeremiah because of the Cobaya blog. The menu below is a work in progress but it’s off to a great start.
The first thing I tried was the Old Dirty Dawg. The Dog was served with “Stupid Slaw” on Potato Bread. The Menu says “maybe Mustard if you’re nice”. I didn’t get mustard, hmm…Did I mention the Hot Dog was Short Rib? Yeah, you need to get on this, it was way good.
Next up was the Sloppy Jose on White Bread. I didn’t find Jose too Sloppy but I did find him irresistible and also muy bueno.
Batting third was Pulled Pork Sandy on white. The pork had a great smokey flavor. Great taste, loved it.
And finally the Triple Decker Slider Burger on potato bread. A burger stuffed with pork belly? Damn right and it was awesome (although some cheese couldn’t hurt anyone).
Right when I was about to leave I ran into Smurphio (from local band Afrobeta). We went to school together back when grunge was in season. After some catching up, I said my goodbyes to the gastroPod as he went to place an order. No doubt, he didn’t leave disappointed.
