Last time I attended Miami Culinary Tours’ Wynwood Food & Art Tour was in 2015. This year I had a chance to attend the tour with Miami Bloggers and we explored new arts and restaurants in the area. Wynwood is the first place I take all my friends and family to when they come to visit me. Sometimes, it’s nice to be a tourist in your own city, especially when the city is always changing. If you’re ever in Miami, take a day to plan this tour. A lot of sightseeing and the best part, a lot of food! And if you’re a Florida local, you should definitely plan a tour and check out multiple amazing restaurants in one day. It’s a fun activity to do in Miami for friends, family, and couples.
Our tour guide Marie was super friendly and patient. She knew all about Wynwood and the amazing food we had. We stopped at 5 places in total!
WYNWOOD KITCHEN AND BAR
The first stop was at the Wynwood Kitchen & Bar, located right next to the Wynwood Walls sign. We had the Ropa Vieja Empanadas, Fried Plantain with Queso Fresco, and Tequeno in Green Mustard Sauce.
I have never noticed this little place before. Hidden in the corner, the GK Bistronomie truly surprised me. We had Mahi-mahi Ceviche, which was amazingly refreshing during the hot Miami day!
ZAK THE BAKER
Zak the baker is a popular spot in Wynwood. Their fresh bread makes people wait in line before the store even opens. Once you’re inside, be prepared to wait in line a little more. It’s always crowded, but believe me – it’s worth the wait.
Yasss to this Zak the Baker Boreka!
THE TACO STAND
Another hidden little spot, I didn’t know about. I believe this place is fairly new to Wynwood. The inside is super bright and different than all other modern restaurants in the area.
We had the chicken taco at The Taco Stand, and of course, it was delish! Luckily I have never had a bad taco yet. Tacos will always be a favorite of mine. Which means this place also just became my favorite.
FLAVIAN GELATERIA ARTIGIANALE
Ended the fun Wynwood Food & Art Tour at the Flavian Gelateria Artigianale. The tour guide Maria told us to choose our favorite flavor. It was so hard to choose but had to go with pistachio. This is such a cute place to stop by after a long day under the Miami sun. And a perfect way to end the famous tour.
There are gorgeous arts everywhere, but take a moment to look down too – it will make you smile.
Thank you Miami Culinary Tours for such an amazing day.
