Updated: OMG Brigadeiros Miami, Brazilian Sweets

 

Brigadeiros Miami

 

At OMG Brigadeiros Miami I felt like Alice in Wonderland in a dollhouse, with its pretty pink walls, tea room like tables and chairs, alluring scent of chocolate, and lovely chocolate confections. Now with 2 locations –  The Brigadeiros Miami shops, at 2205 SW 23rd Ave on Coral Way and another at 6912 Biscayne Boulevard feature the favored Brazilian confection for celebratory occasions.  Made of Belgian cacao, butter and condensed milk,  in 15 different flavors, it satisfies a sweet craving, and the size of the bite is the probably the reason the Girl From Ipanema keeps her svelte figure. Also, they have expanded their menu with dessert cappucinos, cakes in a jar, milkshakes, Brigadeiro cake Miami, gift items and more.

Goldbelly, Best Eats of USA

Going out on a limb here, but I had the best burger ever shipped to me from Goldbelly. Good foodie friends, Mr. W who is a serious burger guy, and the New Yorker magazine agree. Now it’s not one of these over the top burgers where everything is piled high and more is more. It’s a “refined” burger from Raoul’s in New York City. If you don’t know about Goldbelly, you’re seriously missing out on eating some of the best and most famous foods from restaurants, purveyors and eateries across the USA. Here’s the scoop about the burger and my Goldbelly review.

Good, Crazy Fun: Sugar Factory

Wouldn’t you go if you got an invite to try the Insane Double Stack Rainbow Pancakes? And if that didn’t get you going, how about a Donut Burger, Cookie Monster milkshake or smoking Mimosa Goblet? It sure got my family going to Sugar Factory on Ocean Drive for much needed good, crazy fun for all ages. They’re all part of the new breakfast menu served from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. You have to see these pics to believe it!!!

Forte dei Marmi Miami, Divine

A wonderful sensation, finally, to feel as if I had left COVID-19 behind. That’s the way I felt at dinner Saturday night with Mr. W. We got dressed up, date night style, and headed off to Forte dei Marmi Miami where I’ve been numerous times before. Somehow it was extra special — the stylish veranda with its crisp white tablecloths and white rose adorning each; the buzzy atmosphere; the elegant Italian managers in their tailored dark blue suits and suede loafers; and the tableside service. Then there was a divine menu. I’ve gone to Forte dei Marmi Miami numerous times since it opened, and it has always been a favorite for its ambiance, cuisine and service. About a year ago the management changed along with the chef. I went back to check it out twice (once before Saturday with a picky Parisian girlfriend), and we all found the food better than ever (plus, they observe the safety protocols).

The Boys Farmers Market, A SoFL Experience

If you’re a foodie, or just really appreciate fresh fruits and vegetables and enjoy the gourmet market experience, you must put a drive to The Boys Farmers Market on your “to do” list. There’s nothing even close to it in Miami in terms of variety and quality of fruits and vegetables, price point,  as well as having a wide selection of other food items in one place. If you know Fairway Market in New York City, this is similar, but on a smaller, though not small scale. Plus, it’s an experience being there, worth the drive to Delray Beach. So what in particular will you find?
