I went Miami for a blogging conference, and I just had to share all of the places that I got to eat with you all!! Since I was there for a conference, I wasn’t sure how much time I’d have to go and try the local restaurants, but luckily I was able to eat at a few great places! And here’s a snapshot:

Salsa Fiesta in Miami Florida

Up first – Salsa Fiesta. I was with a group of girls, and a few were craving Mexican food, so a quick search on Yelp brought us to Salsa Fiesta that was within walking distance of our hotel. They had fresh Mexican food – with everything from tacos to tortas to salads. I got a mixed taco plate, and ate way more than I thought I could. A few girls with me got the Acapulco Salad that had fried plantains tostones that looked amazing!

Checkers in Miami Florida

When I’m traveling, I usually like to steer clear of chain restaurants, but I felt like I needed to mention these fries. There was a Checkers right across the street from our hotel, and a late night craving for milkshakes and french fries brought us to Checkers. The milkshakes were ok, but the fries were actually really good. I’m pretty picky with my french fries, but I’d totally get these again!

Swine Restaurant in Miami Florida

The highlight of the food for me would have been Swine Southern Table and Bar. Amazing food. I could tell I was going to love it when I walked in and you could smell the wood burning.

We started with the homemade cornbread that was served with jam and maple butter. So good. I could have easily stuffed myself with these muffins, but luckily I saved some room for my entree.

Because wow – it was good. BLT Benedict – which was homemade buttermilk biscuit crumble, soft poached organic egg, house-cured bacon, cherry tomato salad, frisee and Hollandaise. Seriously amazing. Especially the bacon. It literally melted in my mouth. I ate every. single. bite.

I also had to show a picture of the Farm Eggs and Maple Sausage Sandwich. I’d totally order that next time, too. :)

City Hall Restaurant in Miami Florida

On Saturday night, a big group of us were hungry and the concierge at the hotel recommended City Hall. It was within walking distance from the hotel, so we all headed over. They were super nice there (especially for coming in with a group of like 30 people!!) I ordered the Homemade Mozzarella Pizza that was delicious. A couple people at my table ordered the Iceberg Lettuce Wedge that looked amazing, and their Sweet Potato Fries and Truffle Parmesan Fries were very good.

Warm Chocolate Chip Cookies from Morgan's Restaurant in Miami Florida

I had to throw this one in there, even though I didn’t actually go to the restaurant. After City Hall, a few of us headed to have some girl time and fresh, warm chocolate chip cookies from Morgan’s Restaurant at the penthouse that Jenny, Amanda, Lauren and Barbara were staying in. These cookies were so delicious. And I’m totally going to Morgan’s next time I am in Miami. I saw photos from several different bloggers and from what I can tell, Morgan’s is the place to go for brunch!!

MIchaels Genuine Food and Drink in Miami Florida

I had a late flight on Sunday, so a group of us went to Michael’s Genuine Food and Drink for brunch. I’m not gonna lie – I almost laughed when our food started to come out and we saw how small the portions were! Luckily we ordered a lot between the 5 of us so that we could sample. My favorites were the Peanut Butter “Elvis” French Toast, Wood Oven Roasted Corn, and the Lemon Blueberry Bars.

I feel like I just barely got a taste of the Miami food scene and hope that I get to go back again one day!!

      Nothing to be embarrassed about – there are SO many restaurants in Miami. It would be impossible to know about all of them! You definitely need to try Swine, though. It was amazing!
