Take me to Miami Spice

July 24, 2014
Miami Spice 2014 Logo

Miami Spice is fast approaching. If you are a foodie and especially living in Miami, it is the number one summer activity you must not miss.

Miami Spice is any food lovers dream. It's a promotional time were participating restaurants showcase the best of Miami cuisine. Most restaurants offer a three course meal of their featured dishes at a reduced price. Lunch is at $23 and Dinner is at $39.

This period is the time that I am able to be Taste Tester Supreme and have the opportunity to sample new food and venture into new restaurants.

This concept is a brilliant idea. It was initially introduced to help boost activities at restaurants during the
Iron Fork Miami Spice 2014
summer time. It had such a great reception that even some of the big wigs decided to become a part of this feast treat

Prior to the start of the "season" there is a Kickoff event dubbed Iron Fork where you would be able to get a preview of what the participating restaurants have to offer. There is also going to be a cook off (Iron Fork) where two chefs face off. Tickets for this event can be bought here. $50 General and $85 VIP.
