Where To Eat in Miami - #ExploreMiami Part 1

We've been living in Miami for about a couple of months now, and I'm a little ashamed to admit this: we have eaten out A BUNCH!

Not sure how much money we’ve spent on food in the past couple months, but I’m pretty sure it was A LOT. But hey, we’re still in slight “vacation mode” and I honestly don’t know when it’s going to stop feeling that way, but with that said, we have tried so many restaurants, so many types of different food that I think it was time for me to write a round-up of restaurants, coffee shops, and dessert spots to check out in Miami. I also shared some recommendations on what to order so you can skip guessing on what’s good.

I didn’t include ALL the places we visited. I’m only sharing places I recommend. I hope that you find this post helpful!
