First Taste

First Taste : International Smoke

If you haven’t been to Aventura Mall lately, it’s become a food hot spot. It is officially a destination for everyone who loves food. Joining restaurants like Shake Shack, Tap 42, Poke 305, Genuine Pizza, Pubbelly Sushi and more is the latest edition to Aventura Mall’s new wing, International Smoke.

International Smoke is a collaboration between Ayesha Curry and Chef Michael Mina. The inspiration for International Smoke came from their discovery that the word “Barbecue” has different culinary interpretations internationally.

At International Smoke, they try to re-create that special feeling reminiscent of a backyard barbecue, where you get to experience a variety of different flavors and cultures with family and friends. With locations in San Francisco, San Diego and Houston, International Smoke is a welcome addition to Miami at the Aventura Mall.

On the menu at International Smoke, you could find Smoked St. Louis Cut Pork Ribs, Smoked Burrata, Bone-In Short Rib, Smoked Salmon and more. One thing you will find a lot of at International Smoke is smoke. Not just smoke to add flair to a dish, but smoke to give it that international taste and a special final touch.

I would definitely give International Smoke a try. You and your stomach will be very satisfied with the results.
