Wynwood in Miami has become one of my favorite destinations over the past few years.
I mean what’s not to like: beautiful weather, eclectic street art, awesome nightlife and a lot of great restaurants. The traffic can get pretty crazy, but that’s what walking shoes are made for. Now, with the addition of Smorgasburg Miami, you’ve got everything you could possibly need to have a great time – all within a few blocks.
I’m no stranger to the Smorgasburg scene. Since it’s earliest days in Williamsburg, Brooklyn this food feast has become one of my go to hangouts, not only to stuff my face, but to also meet up and coming chefs who are testing out new dishes before they fully invest in a restaurant or food truck. Whether we’re talking about NYC or LA, many great chefs have found their footing at Smorgasburg. So I expected nothing but the best.
I made sure to get there early to bypass the huge crowds. But by time I got there it was already packed. I started my food journey, stopping at Mao Boas first. I’m very familiar with given their main hub is in NY. This turned out to be a great ideas because their colorful assorted dumplings helped me soak up all the drinks I indulged in the night before.
From there I paid a to as many vendors as I could. And trust me there’s a lot. From the delicious jerk chicken and island vibes at Jrk! to the vegan menu at Coney Burger. Each bite was better than the last and I ate until I was too full to stand up. Unfortunately, I couldn’t bring back any food for you guys. But I did bring back a bunch great photos. Use these to make a list of your favorite munchies before you make you way over to the next Smorgasburg.
