Posted on 1 CommentPosted in BB Approved, Miami-Dade County, Visits by Burger Beast, Westchester

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 […]

HuaHua’s Taqueria opened up in a little spot not too far from Shake Shack (how I gauge distance in SoBe) with about 4 counter seats and a few tables (with seats duh) outside. I got there as the people in Hialeah say, “super” early. I walked in a couple of minutes before they even opened […]

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Closed, Miami-Dade County, Visits by Burger Beast, Westchester

Folks are always talking about the lack of “Authentic” Mexican restaurants in South Florida but they must be looking in the wrong places. I seem to run into them all over the place. Even the bad authentic places are better than the brightly lit Tex-Mex “cantinas” chains all over Miami. How authentic is La Fiesta […]

You know what’s really good? Tamale at Taqueria El Mexicano in Little Havana

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in You Know What's Really Good

You know what’s really good? The tamale at Taqueria El Mexicano in Little Havana. I love tamales but seem to have trouble finding exceptional ones. I waltzed into Taqueria El Mexicano looking to enjoy a Cochinita Pibil Taco and left a giant fan of their tamale. It had a moist Pork filling and deliciously light […]

We were driving in the Orlando area and decided to see where the road would take us. After a bit of this lunacy I was so thirsty. We walked into this mini convenience store and there they were, Mexican Coke (Coke with Sugar instead of Corn Syrup). I grab one and my heart sank just […]

When Mike Saperstein and Evan David (owners of one of South Florida’s best Burger joints Charm City Burger Company) announced El Jefe Luchador earlier this year I was ecstatic for a couple of reasons. Over the course of the last couple of years I’ve become a giant fan of authentic Mexican food and I’ve been […]

Madre’s in St. Augustine, Florida

Madre’s is located in Downtown St. Augustine. It caught my eye as my wife Marcela and I were walking around checking the shops. It stood out amongst the other food chain type of establishments around. Its food is Mexican by way of California which I’m ok with as long as the ingredients are good. I […]

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Visits by Burger Beast

I get asked about authentic Mexican Tacos quite a bit and it’s kinda crazy to think but Little Havana has quite a few spots you should probably eat at. El Carnal 2 is one of those spots you need to hit up. Is there an El Carnal 1? Yes but it’s taco trailer that only […]
