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 šŸ˜€

First Taste : Palat

There are a lot of Italian restaurants in Miami, but none similar to what you find at Palat.

Palat is bringing modern Italian to the Buena Vista area. Palat comes to us from Chef Pippo Lamberti, who has had restaurants in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and more. Palat is the first restaurant from Lamberti in Florida.

At Palat you can find local ingredients turned into traditional Italian dishes with a modern spin. Palat is focused on a small-plates experience so you can try and share multiple dishes at the same time.

Check out the full menu here.

A stand out dish for me was the Sea Urchin with squid-ink pasta and crabmeat.
