EATS: Miami Beach Finga Licking, Art Basel and MORE!
ART BASEL ISN'T JUST ABOUT THE ART EXHIBITS, IT'S ABOUT THE FOOD CULTURE TOO!
We visited Miami, FL this past week to attend the Art Basel 2016 festivities and we had to stop by these amazing spots for good eats.
1. Miami Beach Finga Licking - "American comfort food & a fast-food ambiance set the stage for a celeb hip-hop scene."
This place was incredibly good and not too busy when we arrived around 9pm on a Monday evening. We started with their Famous Mystery Drink -a bit too sweet for me - and ordered a variety of entrees from the Fried Menus including Lobster Bites, Shrimp, Turkey Wings and the Lemon Pepper Wings with various sides.
The Finga Licking sauce was the best runner up to BBQ I have ever tasted. I wanted it bottled up to go. Overall, a delicious meal and quick service!
2. El Palacio de los Jugos - "Humble outdoor stand where Cuban comfort food is offered with fresh juice from the market next door."
The restaurant was clean, employees were sweet despite not speaking much English, the food was delicious and prices are cheap for large portions. El Palacio de los Jugos is where we ate before heading back to the airport for departure. Very delicious, authentic Cuban food.
3. Jimmy'z Kitchen Wynwood - "Eclectic fare that includes sandwiches, salads and "excellent boricua" entrees at affordable prices."
This was our first stop upon arrival in Miami before partying in Wynwood. We were very hungry but wanted a light meal to soothe our stomachs and no give us a food baby. I ordered the Fajita Salad while my best friend ordered the cottage fries (one potatoes cut and fried). We gnawed at the dishes that hit other customers table and vowed to come back for their poke, however, we didn't make it back during this trip. The food was perfect for the occasion.
We at at a few other places such as iSushi and HuaHau Taqueria but I forgot to take pictures. Needless to say, there are so many delicious, authentic restaurants in Miami Beach that you just have to explore and be open to trying them out.
