You Know What’s Really Good? Week Of Monday June 17 – Friday June 23rd

For a little over 3 years I’ve written something called “You Know What’s Really Good?” whenever I came across one dish that I thought really stood out.

You know what’s really good? Cheeseburger at Daddy’s Grill Food Truck

You know what’s really good? The Cheeseburger at Daddy’s Grill Food Truck. Sure, there’s the much larger Big Daddy’s Burger (with Bacon & Ham) which is still half a pound.

I hadn’t been to Loven Ovens in a few years since I moved. I was hungry and only their Fugazza Pizza would do. I drove over to their location in Doral only to realize they weren’t there anymore.

You know what’s really good? Everything at Karla Bakery

You know what’s really good? Karla Bakery. Back when I leeched off of my parents, I loved awakening  to the smell of Pasteles and fresh Cuban Bread from Karla Bakery on Sunday mornings.
