A Look Back At Prost Wurstgrill and Bierhouse In Brickell, Florida

A Look Back At Prost Wurstgrill and Bierhouse In Brickell, Florida

Prost Wurstgrill and Bierhouse in Brickell seemed to be all over the twitter-sphere one week and by the following week it was gone. Phil Bryant formerly of Swine was the consulting Chef at Prost and had invited Gio from Chat Chow TV and I in for a tasting. I’m pretty sure it was the last meal served out of Prost before its closing.

The Riesen-Bretzel, Chicken Sausage and Hasenpfeffer were the…

El Rey De Las Fritas Sweeps Frita Showdown Numero Dos

El Rey De Las Fritas Sweeps Frita Showdown Numero Dos

Frita Showdown 2k14 Winner

I jokingly asked everyone in social medialand (Facebook, Instagram & Twitter) if there was anyway that one of the 6 restaurants might sweep and not only win the Judge’s Award (known as the Best Frita en el Mundo) but also the GOYA People’s Choice Award. I didn’t really think it would happen but as my wife puts it, I was wrong. El Rey de las Fritas returned to Magic City Casino to defend their…

Los Bobos Cafeteria & Deli - Doral, Florida

Los Bobos Cafeteria & Deli – Doral, Florida

Los Bobos Outside

You wanna talk old school Cuban cafeteria? Los Bobos is located in the warehouse area near Rowland Coffee Roasters (Cafe Bustelo and Pilon) in a pretty non descript building. They’ve been doing their thing here for over 30 years. There are no seats, only standing counter space. And you will find a great cross section of Miamians eating here, anyone from truckers to guys in suits stopping in for…

The menu features all the addictive Shack stuff like the ShackBurger, & SmokeShack who I’m so well acquainted with that we’re almost family. Just like…

Miller’s Ale House - Doral, Florida

Miller’s Ale House – Doral, Florida

My fascination with the Miller’s Ale House started back in 1996 when a co-worker told me about the Pines Ale House. What I remember most about my first visit was their micro-brews (which were horrendous by the way and no longer served) and their spicy Chicken Strips aka Zingers which were not. I’ve never really come to the Doral Ale House with the intention of ordering a Burger but I have ordered…

Longhorn Steakhouse - Doral, Florida

Longhorn Steakhouse is one of those places where they do one thing pretty good and that’s Steaks. I’m not gonna lie and say that I don’t like a couple of things off of the Menu but the Burgers are not those items. The funny thing is that they have 5 different Burgers on their lunch menu but only one on their dinner menu. So I was with my bud Dietcolalola and my wife Marcela. We were starving and…

Shorty’s Bar-B-Q - Doral, Florida

Talk about an old BB post, Shorty’s Bar-B-Q - Doral, Florida from 02-15-09

Shorty's Bar-B-Q - Doral, Florida

I had seen MiamiDon’s Seven Burgers post at the Roadfood site and it inspired me to check out a few of the places on there.. One of those being, Shorty’s Bar-B-Q which I have not eaten at in a good 7 to 8 years. I’m not the biggest fan of ribs but it seems that this is what you should get when you come to Shorty’s. By the time my wife Marcela and I arrive, my friend Ed is already at the table…
