We’re officially in to Week 2 of 2017, but we’re not quite ready to say goodbye to 2016 just yet and are taking one final chance to reminisce about our “Year in Food” in 2016. In looking back at some of our best bites (and sips) across Miami this past year we’re adding in a few more opinions this time around, with some favorites from our new contributing writers as well. 2016 was a great year of growth for us here at MMTM Headquarters and we couldn’t have done it without them. We’re excited to let you get to know them even better in the year to come. And, of course, we couldn’t do any of this without you… Thanks, as always, for following along on our foodie adventures.
As we all know by now, Miami has been really coming into its own over the past few years, with a community that is coming together more and more over a collective love and desire for cultural and culinary creativity. On the food front we’ve seen a new crop of restaurants opening up, concepts are highlighting local ingredients and flavors, and our food festivals are focusing less on celebrity and more on local talent. Leading that charge for years now, has been Chef Jeremiah Bullfrog, chef/owner of gastroPod Miami and creator of the popular PIG (Pork is Good) events that for the past six years has brought together some of Miami’s most exciting chefs to showcase the power of the mighty pig. But now, he’s set his sights on a different protein: fowl. And, this past Saturday this group of hungry gourmands gathered together for a delicious game of Duck Duck Goose in Wynwood.
Earlier this month, one of our favorite gals, Ms. Cheezious, made her way into Ponce de Leon and became a Coral Gables resident – aptly on National Grilled Cheese Day. Long ago, she stole our hearts and healed our cheese cravings with her delicious offerings at what was then only a food truck obsession. When a brick and mortar location in MiMo became a reality more than a year ago, we rejoiced with happiness. Now, we’re melting at the thought of a second location with new offerings to make this menu even more enticing.
She’s hot, steamy and going around town…serving delicious, cheesy creations. Ms. Cheezious is one of the many food trucks that have taken over the Miami Food Truck scene in the last few years. A little sexier and more risqué than your other cheesy food truck selections, this Ms. offers a variety of bold flavors in unexpected combinations that leave you wanting more.
It seems like only yesterday that Food Trucks were all the rage here in Miami. Anywhere you looked, you couldn’t help but run across these innovatively delicious restaurants-on-wheels, conveniently found on strategic street corners offering gourmet “fast food” options for local foodies and families alike. Nowadays, it seems the fervor has subsided and finding a truck isn’t as easy as it once was. So, what happened?
