Good Eats: Miami
Wherever I go, finding good food is at the top of my list of things to do. During a recent visit to Miami I had the opportunity to eat at some amazing places.
Della Test Kitchen

My first stop after landing was the Wynwood Yard. This pop-up entrepreneurial hub has good food, good music, and good vibes. Being surrounded by so many amazing food trucks was so hard for someone as indecisive as myself. I decided on Della Test Kitchen and they did not disappoint! Della offers healthy and flavorful options. I had a Caribbean Bowl and a Green Lemonade. The Caribbean Bowl is a flavorful combination of black coconut rice, adashah, plantain, kale, avocado, toasted coconut, and yellow sauce.
World Famous House of Mac

Looking to indulge? The World Famous House of Mac is the place to go. Wings, burgers, waffles, and of course mac and cheese. This truck is also in the Wynwood Yard. The boyfriend had the World Famous Five Cheese Truffle Mac and Cheese. Of course, I had to get in a few bites. It was dangerously delish.

Also in the Wynwood Yard lies Mr. Bing. This unique twist on ice cream gets its origin in Taiwan. The best way I can describe it is ice cream meets shaved ice. Cylindrical blocks of ice cream are shaved into paper thin ribbons and served with a variety of toppings and drizzles. I had the dairy free coconut ice cream with chocolate syrup and pistachios. Yummy!
While looking for a light breakfast, I stumbled across Vitality Bowl. This superfood cafe has tons of options. It took us a while, but we decided to share a Nutty Bowl. It was filling and refreshing; perfect for a hot summer day. Aside from açai bowls, their menu also includes juices, smoothies, panini's, soups, and salads.
Under the Mango Tree
If you're looking for a healthy option near South Beach, give Under the Mango Tree a try. This place is super cute and cosy. I had the Turmeric Frappe (almond milk, turmeric, cinnamon, vanilla, agave, and ginger) and Avery had a Local (banana, strawberry, and almond milk). We both had the Spicy Kale Melt. I think Avery is slowly getting on board with vegetarian (or at least pescatarian) life. He's always surprised how delicious and filling vegetarian meals can be.
While in search of a late night meal, we were referred to Moshi Moshi. Both locations are open until 5 in the morning and have award winning sushi... sold. If you're ever there, try kimchi fried rice or one of their house specialty rolls.
