Last week I had the pleasure of going on tasty little stroll through South Beach with Miami Culinary Tours. I’ll walk you through the tour with me. You may be heading to South Beach yourself, or perhaps you just need a little vicarious vacation. Either way, I’ll take you with me every step of the way.
I was in Miami for the big food blog conference called BlogHer Food. I took the C bus down to the meeting location and decided that Miami public transportation was super useful as a visitor to this crazy city. Don’t be scared people. Take the bus. Taxis will only lead to a leaky wallet.
We were directed in to Bolivar, an unassuming Colombian restaurant. We were served a mixed drink, a crunchy empanada with one heck of a spicy sauce, and a ceviche. I don’t drink alcochol so I enjoyed the original beverage which is apparently popular in Colombia. It was quite tasty and reminded me of a cream soda.
I was immediately blown away upon first bite of the ceviche. The fish was so fresh. Living in San Diego, I’m used to Mexican ceviches where the cut of the seafood is much smaller. The ceviche had both lime and passion fruit as the acids and I found it to be an amazing combination. Can you ever go wrong with passion fruit?
The empanada was crunchy, making it slightly different than what I have become accustomed to. It came with an incredibly spicy habanero sauce that I wanted to drink. Some of my fellow bloggers did and I can’t blame them!
We took a short stroll down the street to Manolo’s where we enjoyed a dulce de leche stuffed churro. Seriously, it was just as good as it sounds. I could have easily eaten the entire plate. I have got to figure out how to replicate this wonder because it was incredible! Melty dulce de leche oozing out of a crisp churro is simply a culinary life experience everyone needs to have.
