First Taste : Pez Miami

If you have been looking for Baja-Med cuisine in Miami, you don’t have to go far because Pez has just opened in Downtown Miami.

Pez comes to use from Chef Javier Plascencia. Pez cuisine comes from Tijuana and infuses food with Mexican and Mediterranean flavors.

On the menu at Pez, you could find tacos, tostadas, and more. The wine selection at Pez is great too. You’ll find wines straight from Mexico and a great selection of tequila and mezcal.

Check out the full menu here.

A few weeks ago, I got a chance to check out Pez for myself, along with one half of Mitch and Mel Take Miami, Mitch.

Check out some of the dishes we had:

Pez Miami is located at 20 West Flagler St. in Downtown Miami.

First Taste : The Daily South Beach

Searching for an all-around restaurant that can make everyone happy isn’t exactly the easiest thing. But leave it to me to let you know that this Miami staple has a second location that is larger than the first and better than ever.

The Daily Creative Food Co. is where you should stop at. We all love The Daily from their first location on Biscayne Blvd. Their great breakfast, sandwiches, and so much more, make The Daily a Miami staple. Well if you didn’t know, they opened a bigger South Beach location a few years ago and I think this is the perfect time to check it out and see why I believe The Daily is better than ever.

The Daily’s South Beach location has been open for a few years now, but most people wouldn’t even know it. Their South Beach location is spacious and easy to get to, which makes for the perfect way to give The Daily a re-visit.

I recently took my own advice and decided to visit their South Beach location to remind myself why The Daily is so great.

Here are the dishes I ate:

The Daily Creative Food Co. is located at 959 West Avenue in Miami Beach.

First Taste : Duck and Dim Sum Sundays at NOVIKOV Miami

There’s nothing more I love than a good Peking Duck and Dim Sum for a Sunday Funday. Lucky for you and I, Novikov makes our dreams come true.

Every Sunday for $49, two guests share half a Peking duck, plus ten assorted dumplings like Spicy Prawn Moneybags, Saffron Sweet Corn Dumplings, Chicken & Morel Siu Mai, Shrimp & Cilantro Dumplings and Kimchi Wagyu Dumplings. Not to worry, if you’re looking for more tasty bites, the entire menu is available as well. I suggest adding a Wasabi Martini to your order.

This is such a great deal for one of my new favorite restaurants. If you have never been, this is the perfect time to check it out for yourself. I promise, once you go, you will want to come back over and over again.

A few weeks ago, I got a chance to experience Duck and Dim Sum Sunday for myself and I cannot wait to come back. Novikov did bring me a few extra bites, but you cannot go wrong with anything at Novikov Miami.

Here are some of the dishes I had:

Novikov is located at 300 South Biscayne Boulevard in Downtown Miami.

First Taste : Malibu Farm Miami Beach

You would think in a city like Miami Beach, there would be many amazing beach side restaurants with bomb food and killer views right? Well I could probably only name a handful of them.

There is no doubt, I can add Malibu Farm to that growing list.

Malibu Farm Miami Beach is located inside the Eden Roc Miami Beach. This is the first East Coast location for this restaurant. You come here for the food and the killer views.

Malibu Farm Miami Beach serves breakfast, lunch, brunch and dinner. You know that photo of that Avocado Pizza your friends have been posting about? Yeah, you can find that at Malibu Farm.

I highly recommend Malibu Farm for brunch or lunch. The views here are just as amazing as the food.

Check out all the menus here.

I checked out Malibu Farm for lunch a few weeks ago and here is what I ate, plus the views 😀
