The popular Miami Culinary Tours has a new food tour in the Wynwood Art District of Miami. This neighborhood is being transformed by artists whose murals cover warehouses and enormous walls. The personalities and vibes that have flowed in are as distinct as the art and colors in its streets. Art galleries and studios house unique pieces of art and hungry artists.
Naturally, chefs have also moved their skills into the neighborhood. Kitchen styles and flavors are as eclectic as the artists that call this district home. Miami Culinary Tours looks to capture the diversity of the food styles and its influences. “This tour has been designed to encompass the creativity and variety (in food and art) of Wynwood” explains Grace Della founder of the Culinary Tours and who has been conducting tours in the historic districts of Miami since 2010. This is her latest creation and a unique dinning experience in Wynwood.
The Wynwood Food Tour stops at some of the best restaurants in the area including Wynwood Kitchen & Bar where guests try a juicy empanada with a side of creamy cilantro sauce and sweet fried plantains sprinkled with ‘queso crema.’ The tour visits The Butcher Shop where a beautifully presented cone is filled with a variety of cold cuts ranging from a smoked polish kielbasa to peppered salami and are accompanied by a dark Russian beer. The next stop is Jimmy’z Kitchen where guests enjoy mofongo, a traditional Puerto Rican dish made with mashed and then fried green plantains, garlic, olive oil, crunchy pork rinds, and
chicken. Across the street you’ll find the newest addition to Wynwood, SuViche, where a spicy
Japanese-Peruvian fusion plate is served. Cross back over to the west side of N Miami Ave to Pride & Joy. Here they serve deviled eggs topped with tender pulled pork before the final stop at the hidden Fireman Derek’s World Famous Pies where guests take delight in the perfect ending to a food tour – a creamy, decadent and chilled key lime pie, a South Florida tradition.
Besides tasting some of the best bites the neighborhood has to offer guests also learn about the artistic movement that has slowly taken over the district. Guests walk from place to place among enormous murals that seem to bend colors and shapes in unique ways much like the food.
