Plato Deli – Medley, Florida

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved, Medley, Miami-Dade County, Visits by Burger Beast

It’s been years 5 years since I headed into Medley to eat, at Loven Ovens to be exact. I spent many summers in Medley working with my Dad on his WISE Potato Chips route. Who remember’s Haney’s Market and their Grilled Cheese Sandwiches? Ok, enough of that…I’m getting off topic. Plato’s Deli is located on […]

Our most recent road trip lasted 12 days where we drove from South Florida through Alabama, Kentucky, Ohio and then Tennessee & Georgia on our way home. When trying to pick out favorite moments from our trip I’d be hard pressed to say that my visit to Boyce General Store was my favorite stop but […]

Chef Alberto Cabrera just opened up Little Bread in Little Havana. This comes just a couple of months shy of Bread + Butter Counter‘s 2 year anniversary, B+B is his other restaurant. Sandwiches are more my speed and that’s what Little Bread is all about. The Sandwiches at Little Bread are serious business, just take the Pulpeta (without […]

My introduction to the guys (now only Rusty) behind Passion BBQ was when they were doing the BBQ at the great but short lived Lunch American Style. They’ve since opened up the Passion BBQ Food Truck and now their brick & mortar home at Craft Bar & Q. Craft Bar & Q is in soft […]

Rock That Burger – Kendall, Florida

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in Visits by Burger Beast

Anyone that  followed the Street Food Scene in South Florida from the beginning (late 2009) knows of the Yellow Submarine. They were the 3rd truck to hit Miami and really made me look differently at the Colombian Style Street Food they were serving. I was tired of all the frozen patty and recycled sauces all those […]

There’s probably nothing worse than waiting through your entire work week to finally see the “big movie” and having to deal with knuckleheads who think they’re at a pool party. There’s a couple of ways to solve this. If you’re going to be checking out some indie fare then I’d suggest visiting O Cinema to get […]

Gran Forno Bakery – Ft. Lauderdale

I was eating at Old Breakfast House when I just had to ask if they baked their own bread. They didn’t but directed me to the Gran Forno Bakery where they get all of their bread fresh daily. It was just about a mile away from their restaurant. It was a little overwhelming when I […]

Frenchie’s Bistro in West Kendall opened shop in early August. I had a great lunch there but my camera malfunctioned and I lost all the pictures. I kept telling myself I would be back to eat the days following that lunch which turned into almost 3 months. I finally made it back and got to […]

When I was last in Vegas back at the end of 2007 I remember seeing an “Earl of Sandwich – Coming Soon” sign at the Planet Hollywood hotel. I was kinda excited for some reason but I never thought about it again until I walked into the Port St. Lucie Turnpike Plaza (a plaza exists […]
