Blocks Pizza Deli in Miami Beach – Some of the Best Pizza Around (aka Home of the Mother Dough)

2 Dec ConnorsTasteBuds and the Pizza Chef at Blocks Pizza Deli

I was on Miami Beach renting a Trikke with my family when we decided to stop and have some pizza.  When we went inside, the restaurant was small.  I ordered the bacon and rosemary pizza which was very good.  My sister had the basil and cheese pizza.  She liked it also.  We also had some cheesy focaccia bread sticks.  They were a bit too cheesy for my taste.  We ended the meal with an awesome banana and nutella pita.  Mmmmm good!  I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are on Miami Beach.

ROK:BRGR – Lunch at Rok Burger in South Miami

11 Aug

My family and I ate a Rok Burger for lunch. The food is very good the service is ok. They have inside and outside seating. We ordered the slider sampler it has eight sliders.  My favorite was the “bacon jam” burger.  We had bread pudding for dessert.  I would definitely go back.

Dinner at El Carajo (“The Gas Station”) in Miami

18 Oct

Would you eat dinner at a gas station? I would, if it is El Carajo.

Inside, it looks like a combination of a restaurant and a bakery.  Once you walk into the restaurant, it looks like a Spanish tavern.

I started the meal with a bowl of lobster bisque.  It was so thick and creamy, I could eat it with a fork.  Next we ordered the garlic shrimp.  It arrived sizzling hot and tasted good.  Then, we shared a tablet of fish, scallops, mussels, calamari, chicken, pork, steak, potatoes, and tostones.  It came with three delicious sauces to eat with the meal.  My favorite part of the tablet was the scallops.

We ended the meal with a chocolate torte. I love chocolate and this cake was amazing.

I would recommend this restaurant even though it is in a gas station.

Flaming Cheese at Maria’s Greek Restaurant in Coral Gables

14 Oct

Last week, my family and I went to Maria’s Greek Restaurant for dinner.  The food was so good, my family thanked me for picking the restaurant that night.

I ordered the flaming cheese, also known as Saganaki.  The waitress lit it on fire right next to me.  It was so hot that I could feel the heat on my face.  It was served with warm, soft pita bread.  It tasted stupendous!

Next, I ordered the chicken kabob platter.  It was served with a salad, french fries and yogurt sauce, also known as Tzatziki. I enjoyed them very much.

I would recommend this restaurant if you want Greek food.  I give it three out of five stars.

Whisk Gourmet in South Miami

6 Oct

I had dinner with my family at Whisk last night.  The food was awesome!  The restaurant looked amazing as always.  I like to sit next to the kitchen so that I can see the chefs cook my dinner.  We ordered the herb salad with fried green tomatoes.  I liked it a lot.  We also ate the buttermilk fried chicken with mashed potatoes.  It was delish!  For dessert we had the corn meal pound cake.  It tasted lemony and sweet.  I liked it a lot.  If you have not tried Whisk I think you should.  SEE YOU NEXT TIME.

A Delicious Burger at Blu in South Miami

30 Sep

 

The burger was really good. The only problem with the burger was it fell apart in my hands.  Also, the parmesan pesto fries were a little too crispy.  But, I would still go back again.
