For Our Locals: Must-Try Spots
With the breakneck speed that new restaurants pop up in Miami (and the often just-as-fast closures of said restaurants), it can be truly hard to find the latest hotspots. Here are three relatively new spots that you simply have to try:
1) Phuc Yea (7100 Biscayne Blvd) – This outpost of Vietnamese and Cajun food will definitely satisfy any craving for unique spices, aromas, and textures. From their Jambalaya to their Bao Buns, this place serves up the best from East and West, all with 90s hip hop in the background.
2) Paradigm Kitchen (1834 Bay Road) – from the creators of JugoFresh come this delicious vegan/vegetarian spot that will hit the spot without compromising healthy ingredients. From sweet potato brownies to their famous avocado toast to their unique coffee/matcha tea drinks, Paradigm is full of guilt-free deliciousness.
3) Upland (49 Collins Ave) – This new, California-inspired kitchen is undeniably serving up the goods in the form of pistachio pizza, their now-famous roasted short rib, and their extensive wine collection. The restaurant also has a sleek interior, complete with leather booths. We can’t wait to check it out and be Cali girls for a little while.
Of course, there are many places to try in Miami, but these are 3 great places to start! Happy eating!
