Everyone knows I love food; which is why it might seem shocking that many years ago I was a picky eater. It would drive my mom crazy when I would fold my arms and scowl at the vegetables spread around my plate. It didn’t matter how much area the green beans covered on my plate, my mom always knew I hadn’t eaten a single one. Over time, the list of items I refused to eat became shorter, and the list of items I loved grew longer. Once I moved across the country, I became crazy about food. Florida opened my taste buds to an entirely new world of yummy deliciousness. No longer scared to try something new, I would find myself at many different Miami restaurants trying things I had never even heard of. Here is one blogger’s where to eat list with lots of reviews on Miami restaurants; and here is my shortened list that will please almost any appetite.

Emeril’s

Miami is known for its beaches, and eating from an outdoor terrace with an ocean front view makes Emeril’s one of my favorite places to go. Spend the day at the beach and settle down in a romantic setting while eating French or Creole cuisines with a dash of Caribbean flavor.

Barton G

Barton G is a chef who knows how to make a lasting impression on his guests. Juicy steaks, crisp chicken, and mouth-watering seafood are all on the menu, along with many other tasty appetizers and desserts. Whenever I go to a restaurant, I typically order water as my beverage, but not here, drinks are a must!

Pubbelly

One word: delicious. This place is better than good, it is amazing! I had heard of this place long ago and thought I would give it a go and see if it really was as good as people claimed. To my delight, it lived up to all the hype. The ribs, dumplings, and BBQ pork wings were all delicious and made me feel right at home, but what would shock my mother the most is how much I loved their green beans. Yes, the vegetables are to die for.

Sergio’s

When planning a vacation, eating fancy is always something I like to treat myself to, but some meals need to be both affordable and delicious. This family-friendly restaurant is the perfect place to sit back and eat an unforgettable sandwich and a sweet pastry. Plan the day with entertaining inexpensive activities and then stop at Sergio’s for a fun environment that serves Cuban cuisine on a budget.

Azul

For those wanting an unforgettable experience, Azul is the place. This is fine dining at its finest, and although it is on the more expensive side, the waterfront view and food are well worth it. Serving Mediterranean food, Azul is one of the most popular restaurants around; reserving a table is a must.

Latin Burger and Taco

The first time I ate here I was honestly hesitant. The idea of eating from a truck was new to me, but boy was I in for a surprise. The tacos have a unique taste and eating them along with French fries is a strange combination of yummy. A stop here won’t be regretted.
