And Now For Something Completely Different ...

How about some actual Miami foodstuffs as a palate cleanser between all these Spain updates?  A couple particular items of note:

The South Florida Dragon Boat Festival at Haulover Park is always a fun excuse to spend the day outside by the water, but this Saturday (10/2/10) it will offer the additional, significant bonus of a gathering of some of our city's finest food trucks (many of which I've personally not yet had the good fortune to try). You'll find Sakaya Kitchen's Dim Ssäm à Gogo, La Camaronera's Fish Box, Latin Burger, Jefe's Original, and Wing Commander. The festival runs 9am - 5pm, but I'm not sure all the trucks will be there for all that time.

And another thing:

Chef Douglas Rodriguez's latest venture, De Rodriguez Ocean, in the Hilton Bentley on South Beach, opens this coming Thursday. We got something of a sneak peak at the oceanfront venue and D-Rod's ceviche stylings at our last Cobaya dinner, but now it's for real. Here's a look at the menu, courtesy of UrbanDaddy.

  1. Wow, that is one ugly menu.

  2. I liked the menu - sure it's a little busy, but I think it's got some charm.

  3. The only thing I want to be charmed by is the food. Looks like some over enthusiastic graphic designer got too excited. Also, doesn't the Specials board look like lines of coke?

  4. Miami Trailer Custom Food Trucks & Trailers wants to continue to welcome all of the new Food Trucks here and the New ones getting ready to join in. If we can help anyone thinking about opening a Custom Food Truck please feel free to call us.

    Congrats again,
