We know Will Smith’s famous ‘Miami’ song and CSI Miami, but what do we really know about Miami? Not much as turnt out, but luckily we had a long weekend filled with the most adventurous, fun and tast things the city has to offer.
Being a meltingpot of cultures, Miami has so so much to offer food wise. We went on a tour with Miami Culinary tours in Little Havana, where we got a taste of authentic Cuban cuisine AND lifestyle. One of my favourite experiences were the tasty (and strong!) Cuban coffee we got to try, along with the best ever Cuban sandwiches. The tourguide was great, overloading us with fun stories and interesting information about Cuban culture and the food and drinks we got try. This is such a fun way to get to know Miami, a must-do.

NIU kitchen does experimental cooking at a completely different level. Forget level, they’re a world on their own! What I’ve often found about restaurants that do lots of original combinations is that I’m not a fan. But NIU kitchen was something else. My favourite dish was the poached eggs with truffled potato foam and black truggle, unreal. And also the dish as seen below, which was a super tasty crudo tartare with delicious avocado and lobster. A must-eat while in Miami, you’ll love it.
Love a place that does brunch, lunch and dinner! We had dinner at Icebox at first night and loved the fresh, healthy dishes ad great variety. Our favourite was the spicy cauliflower and made-to-order fresh juices. We couldn’t have gone to a better place after just landing in Miami from Amsterdam, with our bodies being in need of greens, veg and healthy goodness. The brunch menu looked equally amazing, score!
