Have you had the pleasure of taking a food tour? Ok! Better question, have you had the pleasure of taking a South Beach Miami Food Tour? I did, and it was simply the best!
Upon arrival, the tour guide introduced herself, gave a brief overview of our itinerary and off we went. Our first stop was the Bolivar restaurant. The atmosphere was cozy, and the food was delicious. Each bite seemed to be better than the next, and to top it off theRefajo, was to die for!!! Lucy, from 2genbeauty, and I are still talking about the amazing cocktail.

Our next stop was a cool hip place called, Manolo’s. Here is where I experienced the taste of a Dulce De Leche Churro for the first time. As soon as I took my first bite, the burst of rich filling exploded in my mouth and I forgot all about napkins, and well you can see what happened next from the pics below. I would make a mess of myself at the beginning of the tour! Food Tour Problems! Lol!

One of the cool things about the “Sobe” Food Tour is that even though the majority of the restaurants are located on Washington Ave., we also explored Ocean Dr. This is where the tour guide filled us in on all of the historical facts about what made South Beach the hot spot it is today. We saw every thing from cool cars; old and new, to Verace’s infamous mansion.
Our third spot was, Polo Norte, this cafe style Cuban restaurant has some of the best beef Slider’s and plantain chips I have ever had. Simply Delicious! It is good the tour consists of lots of walking, with all of the tasty bites it was needed.

Full Yet? I hope not because we still have a ways to go. Next on the list of tasty places was the, Block’s Pizza Deli. The Sundried Hippie Panouzzo was excellent. The perfect thing about this deli is that they cook with only the, “freshest ingredients, organic seasonal produce, all natural deli meats“. When I think about the Panouzzo the only thing’s I do are, “SMH” and say one word, “yummy”!!!!!!
Charlotte’s Bakery was next! This Latin American urban spoon bakery has the best Chicken Empanada’s ever! From the tender flaky crust to the savoy flavors waiting for you on the inside, it just doesn’t get any better!

To say the least, my first food tour was a wonderfully delicious experience, and I can’t wait to participate in more. I walked away with a hugeeeee smile on my face and a full stomach. Mission accomplished!
