That last post was getting a little lengthy, so I broke it up into a second.
Just like our last trip to Miami, we visited Le Tub. As always, it was incredible.
Homemade key lime pie for dessert!
Houston’s was our next stop for my favourite Hawaiian rib eye, marinated in sweet pineapple juice. Jonty and I shared that with their amazing thin, crispy fries and Seared Ahi Tuna salad.
Believe it or not, I have never tried a Churro (but always been wanting to). I was excitled to visit Sawgrass Mills mall, where they had a place called Churro Mania. I chose churros drizzled with Nutella and dulce de leche. OMG!!!
Cheesecake Factory take two! Chicken Piccata of course!
Dulce De Leche of course! We also tried a new cheesecake, white chocolate blueberry, which was surprisingly yummy, considering I didn’t think I would be such a fan.
An array of food trucks flood Hollywood Circle every Monday night. I absolutely love food trucks and was particularly excited because there are little to none here in Toronto. My parents, Jonty and I tried numerous different dishes from various trucks. Our first truck was Ms. Cheezious- a grilled cheese truck. Our pick was Havarti and spiced apples on multigrain bread. The buttery, cheesy, sweet sandwich was a perfect start to the night.
Next we headed to the Palate Party where we indulged in Crab Cake sliders topped with sweet chili jam, roasted garlic aioli, and shredded lettuce. YUMMY!
Nacho Bizness was our pick for tacos. Pictured here is grilled mahi mahi with a tropical pineapple slaw.
We spotted another taco truck and decided to go for it as well! This time we got one deep fried mahi mahi taco and one steak taco. I’m sure that you could guess that we enjoyed the deep fried taco the best!
As if we hadn’t eaten enough, we stopped off at the meatball truck. Our pick was a beef meatball sandwich paired with garlic parmesan fries.
Dessert time! Cool Haus-make your own ice cream sandwich. You pick one or two flavours of cookie, and one or two flavours of ice cream all wrapped in edible paper. Our choice was one red velvet cookie and one potato chip skor cookie with mango ice cream in between. The other one had the same kind of cookies (they were running low on flavours because it was later in the night) with red velvet ice cream and salted caramel ice cream in between. It was a pretty weird concept eating the paper, because it just tasted like paper, however I did not eat the entire wrapper.
We were getting pretty full but there were two things left that I just needed to get my hands on. First I went for a red velvet cupcake with cream cheese icing, followed by a funnel cake! I was definitely in my element this evening.
You might think we couldn’t eat for days after the food trucks, but the next day we were back at it. Pinkberry also recently made its way in North Miami. The smooth, creamy yogurt was just what I needed!
Before hitting the airport, we went to a pizza restaurant called Piola. Coincidentally, right when we got home to Toronto, they opened their first location on Queen St. West. It is a European style pizza place with unique creations, along with salads and pastas. I am so excited to try the Toronto location. Jonty and I shared a pizza with shrimp and mushrooms, and a fusilli with broccoli and chicken in a rose sauce.
That rounds up our Florida trip! I hope you enjoyed seeing what our bellys endured for two weeks!
