    Why am I showing you a YouTube of the Transformers theme song?  Because one of the opening lines of the song is “more than meets the eye” which is exactly how I felt pulling up to this Upper East Side Miami Eatery.  All I saw was a neon sign on the outside of this restaurant connected to an old motel with a small parking lot....

  One of the things I enjoyed most about Miami Beach were the bicycle rentals that could be found throughout the city.  For $10 bucks you can rent a bicycle and ride it anywhere for 2 hours.  The traffic laws on Miami Beach are very conducive to cyclists as well.  Towards the end of my 2 hour block, I came upon a rental station and this place caught my...

  Day one in Miami, after all of my research online on best breakfast spots in the area, my plan was to make my way to Espandola Street and try out A La Folie Cafe, however when I arrived, they were shooting a movie or T.V show in front of the eatery, and they had just lost their electricity.  I decided to check out a place close by, and Oh Mexico was the...

The city has to have great fine dining.  New Orleans has many options in this category.  2. The city needs great street food.  NOLA’s got it.  3. The city needs to have food that is unique to that city....

  2015 has certainly brought me good fortune when it comes to BBQ places.  A few weeks after trying a great new place in Holladay, I finally made it down to Orem to try well recommended Five Star Barbecue.  When it comes to ranking my favorite BBQ places, I boil it down to three different categories:  meat, sides, and sauce.  For the meats I like to see a...
