Foodie or Art Fan? Either Way a Winner.
What could be a better combination than food, art, and a beautiful sunny day?
We ventured on a Miami Culinary Tour of Wynwood and played tourist with a mostly local group of new friends. Wynwood is a rapidly transitioning area of central Miami that is home to the now-famous Wynwood Walls, galleries and amazing restaurants. During this walking tour, our exceptional guide Mirka did a great job of keeping the group together while explaining the story behind the iconic art and artists as well as details about the food we tasted. It was a foodie dream.
Although food options may change depending on the tour, even those of us who had been to Wynwood many times, came away with some new info and experiences.
A quick rundown of our tastings:
- GKB for Peruvian ceviche and pork taquito slice
- The Taco Stand (a California-based enterprise) for an exceptional handcrafted chicken taco
- Wynwood Kitchen & Bar, where it all began, for a ropa vieja empanada, maduros & tequeno
- Nationally renown Zac the Baker for a potato knish and babka tasting
- Recently opened, Flavian for uniquely flavored gelato (think walnut & fig or pear & ginger)
Servings were ample, and trust me, you are not hungry after this 2 ½ hour tour. Somehow, I was too busy eating to take any pictures of the food.
