Where I’ve Been – South Florida

*Updated 3/21/20*

I travel to South Florida for work a couple times a year and normally I find a memorable bite or two along the way. Admittedly, the term ‘South Florida’ encompasses a TON of cities and square miles but, to an outsider, this is the best way to share this group of places. I hope you enjoy!

Atlantic’s Edge Restaurant – Islamorada

B Square Burgers & Booze – Fort Lauderdale

This was a damn good burger from @bsquareburgers down on Las Olas Blvd in @visitlauderdale. What we have here is the OMG burger stuffed with American, Monterey Jack, and cheddar cheeses, and topped with caramelized onions, green leaf lettuce, tomato, and B-Square spread. Great little spot in a happening area so check it out if you need a place to grub in Fort Lauderdale! . . . . . . . . #burger๐Ÿ” #burgerlove #cheeseburgerporn #cheeseburger๐Ÿ” #hamburger #hamburgersofinstagram #fortlauderdale #fortlauderdalefoodies #austin #atxfoodguy #stuffedburgers #cheese #lasolas #lasolasblvd #atxfoodies #floridafoodie #burgerme #burgergram #cheeseburgers #cheeseburgersofinstagram #burgerdream #hamburgerlover

@goodspiritsftl down on Fifth & Fed in Fort Lauderdale is a great restaurant with a fantastic happy hour and fairly robust menu. This is the Cowboy Chopped Steak made with twelve ounces of beef then topped with Gorgonzola cheese and caramelized onions paired up with purple potatoes, brussel sprouts, and mushrooms sitting in delicious demi glace. This was definitely enough food to cure the ol' hunger pangs! Hit up their happy hour for a great selection of half priced drinks and reduced cost small bites! . . . . . . . . . #fortlauderdale #fortlauderdalefoodies #fortlauderdaleeats #discoverunder50k #atxfoodguy #discoverunder10k #florida #soflafoods #sofla #goodeats #foodies #choppedsteak #demiglace #american #ftlauderdale #foodblogger #travelfoodie #travelingfoodie #haveforkwilltravel #fatkidstatus #cleanplateclub #floridafoodie #foodietime #steak #beef

Havana Harry’s – Coral Gables

Hometown BBQ – Miami

View this post on Instagram

Just a bit of BBQ from Miami, @hometownbbqmiami to be exact! ๐Ÿฅฉ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ—๐Ÿฅ“๐Ÿ—๐Ÿ–๐Ÿฅฉ Tried to get a bit of everything on my first visit to Hometown BBQ Miami including a half pound slice of moist brisket, quarter pound of pulled pork, quarter pound of turkey, pork ribs, queso mac and cheese, smoked pit beans, corn pudding, and their amazing cornbread with honey butter ๐Ÿคค. We wiped this tray out pretty quick and even had to order more mac and cheese because it was so good. The brisket was on point, the ribs were so tender, the turkey was juicy, and the pulled pork had amazing flavor. Definitely worth a visit as this is probably the best BBQ you'll find in this part of the country!

Islamorada Shrimp Shack – Islamorada

Laspadas – Various locations

I know, I know, every trip to South Florida results in a new @laspadashoagies post but seriously they're killing it! This is the godfather which is a combination of an Italian sub and a meatball sub. It's pretty absurd especially when you realize this is a small… ๐Ÿ˜ฒ If you ever find yourself near a Laspadas, I highly suggest you don't miss your chance to have one of their delicious hoagies! . . . . . . . . . #hoagie #hoagies #laspadas #boca #discoverunder50k #atxfoodguy #bocaraton #discoverunder10k #meatballs #meatballsub #italiansub #italianhoagie #southfloridafoodies #southflorida #soflafoods #sofla #fatkidstatus #fatkid #cleanplateclub #travelingfoodie #travelfoodie #sandwichesofinstagram #sandwiches #bocarestaurant #visitbocaraton

Marker 88 Restaurant – Islamorada

Max’s Grille – Boca Raton

Ms. Cheezious – Coral Gables

View this post on Instagram

Was down in Coral Gables the other day around lunchtime so I popped on over to @mscheezious to try out one of their awesome grilled cheeses. I went with the Buffalo chicken grilled cheese made with country fried @murrayschickens tossed in their house buffalo sauce, provolone and creamy bleu cheeses, with green onions on sourdough bread. Any time I hit up a grilled cheese spot I absolutely love getting the Buffalo chicken, if it's an option, something about the creamy melted cheeses and spicy buffalo sauce just does it for me. Check them out at any of their locations, you won't be disappointed! . . . . . . . . . . #grilledcheese #grilledcheesesandwich #buffalochicken #googlepixel #buffalochickensandwich #toast #toasted #meltedcheese #southflorida #southfloridaeats #coralgables #coralgableslove #Miami #miamirestaurant #miamifood #miamiflorida #atxfoodguy #delicious #tasty #chicken #friedchicken #friedchickenbreast #letsguide #bestfoodmiami #topmiamirestaurants #eatermiami

Rocco’s Tacos and Tequila – West Palm Beach

View this post on Instagram

It's Taco Tuesday ๐ŸŒฎ! I got this trio of tacos from the (mostly) Florida chain @roccos_tacos. From left to right we have a cochinitas achiote taco, a grilled pescado taco, and a delicious chorizo taco all held in housemade corn tortillas. I gotta say this was a pretty delicious lunch in West Palm Beach down near the water, I just wish I had my @litragear Torch to fix the lighting I was working with, oh well, they still look pretty tasty! ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ ———- Where are you ๐ŸŒฎing today? ———- . . . . . . . . . #tacos #tacolove #fishtacos #cochinita #chorizo #chorizotacos #westpalmbeach #westpalm #tacotime #tacotuesday #tacotuesdays #letstacoboutit #grilledfish #pescadotaco #pescado #carnitastacos #corntortillas #tacotrio #atxfoodguy #atxfoodies #austin #tacogoals #tacolife #tacosarelife

This was so good we had to order it twice! This is the Spicy Sustainable Bluefin Tuna Chop Chop from @therebelhouse in the Mizner area of Boca Raton.

Rebel House is a cool and eclectic departure from the hoity toity kind of places you'd expect in Mizner. I'll definitely be back and you should check it out, too! . . . . . . . . . #tuna #bluefin #bluefintuna #sushi #miznerparkboca #mizner #boca #discoverunder10k #atxfoodguy #bocarestaurant #bocaratonflorida #bocaraton #southfloridafoodies #southflorida #soflafoods #sofla #appetizer #appetizers #delicious #seafood #fish #discoverunder10k #foodporn #foodie #foodies

Here's another one from @therebelhouse in Boca Raton but this time it's their burger. This is a big boy burger topped with white American cheese, "charm city" sauce, pickled tomato, and crispy onion, all on a sesame seed bun but you know I had to add bacon and a fried egg to it when they asked me! The Rebel House is putting out some tasty grub so keep it on your radar should you find yourself in South Florida! . . . . . . . . #baconcheeseburger #cheeseburger #hamburger #discoverunder10k #boca #discoverunder50k #burgerandfries #fries #atxfoodguy #burgerporn #baconeggandcheese #baconburger #friedegg #hamburgerporn #burgerlover #hamburgerandfries #frenchfries #cheeseburgers #baconeggburger #fatkidproblems #fatkidstatus #cleanplateclub #bocaratonflorida #bocaraton

Troys Bar-Be-Que – Boca Raton

View this post on Instagram

Popped on over to South Florida for a quick work trip earlier this week and stumbled on the new location of @troysbbq in Boca Raton and convinced my coworkers to go try it with me. This is their brisket and ribs combo with mac and cheese and possibly the sweetest baked beans I've ever had. The brisket was quite flavorful and the St Louis style ribs were equally as good needing that perfect amount of pull to get the meat off the bone. I've only been to a couple BBQ spots in Florida, at this point, but I can honestly say this has been the best so far. If you find yourself in Boca Raton or Boynton Beach, look up Troy's Barbeque, you won't be disappointed! . . . . . . . . . . #bbq #barbecue #barbeque #brisket #ribs #stlouisstyle #stlouisribs #beefbrisket #beef #pork #bbqcombo #discoverunder10k #atxfoodguy #southflorida #sofla #bocaraton #bocaratonflorida #floridafood #boca #floridaeats #southfloridafoodies #soflaeats #soflafoods #floridabbq #discoverunder50k #travelfoodie #travelingfoodie #haveforkwilltravel #foodporn

Usagi Tokyo – Miami (Wynwood)

View this post on Instagram

Coming in hot is this bowl of ramen from @usagitokyomiami inside @1800lucky in Miami! ๐Ÿœ๐Ÿœ๐Ÿœ๐Ÿœ๐Ÿœ๐Ÿœ๐Ÿœ The best noodz you can get are in the form of ramen and this bowl hit the spot last night. This Tokusei Shoyu Ramen is packed up with chashu, scallions, menma (bamboo shoots), and ajitama (marinated egg) in a delicious shoyu broth made with soy sauce and a chicken, pork, fish, and veggie broth. The umami was awesome and the hot broth was perfect for the 60 degree weather Miami is experiencing lately. Usagi is located in the 1-800-LUCKY Asian food hall and is worth a stop next time you're in Miami to get this and a lot of other great food options!

Wynwood Diner – Miami (Wynwood)

View this post on Instagram

I was finally able to check out the hip @wynwoodmiami neighborhood on this last trip to South Florida. Stopped in to @wynwooddiner for some brunch before walking around the area to take in the art and people. This is their huevos rancheros with a side of home style potatoes and a black bean purรฉe. I could tell the food at this restaurant is prepared with the utmost care and that they take pride in the flavor and appearance of the food they put out. I can easily recommend them! . . . . . . . . #miamiflorida #miamirestaurant #miami #wynwoodmiami #wynwoodlife #wynwood #huevosrancheros #brunch #brunchgoals #brunchtime #miamibrunch #wynwooddiner #atxfoodguy #austin #miamieats #eatmiami #streetart #brunchmiami #miamifood #miamifoodie #eatermiami #bestfoodmiami #austinfoodie #breakfastgoals #breakfast

Yakitori Sakรฉ House – Boca Raton

View this post on Instagram

It's sushi Sunday! When I was in Boca Raton this past week I went with a couple coworkers to @yakitorisakehouse in @miznerpark for some sushi and drinks. In the background we have a spicy tuna roll from their happy hour menu, next is a crazy dancing eel roll which is a California roll topped with unagi, then we have a sea port roll. Pretty delicious dinner and it was fairly reasonable in price for the amount of fish in these rolls! I love love love unagi (freshwater eel) and tuna, of all kinds, the most, what about you? What is your favorite sushi offering? . . . . . . . . #bocaratonflorida #bocaratoneats #bocaraton #bocafoodie #southflorida #southfloridaeats #sushi๐Ÿฃ #sushiroll #unagi #spicytuna #spicytunaroll #atxfoodguy #southfloridafoodies #mizner #miznerpark #miznerparkboca #seafood #fish #eel #rolls #maki #makirolls #yummy #sushisunday #sushidinner #sushihappyhour
