I ate dinner at El Jefe Luchador Hardcore Mexican Street Food located at 27 S Federal Highway, Deerfield Beach, FL 33441. The inside had cool luchador masks and pictures of Mexican wrestlers on the walls. I had two Tacos al Carbon with spicy sausage, or chorizo, with cilantro and cheese on top, $5.50, chips & queso for the table, $4.50, and a Coke to drink, $1.75. I got to choose between a lot of meats, so it wasn't just spicy sausage available. My tacos were OK, they had a bland flavor. I wish I chose another meat. My dad and brother had braised pork shoulder and steak tacos. They said they were really delicious. I'll try them next time. The chips and queso were great, we ate all of it. I give El Jefe Luchador 4 sporks up!
I ate dinner at Gimme A Burger, located at 1200 E Hillsboro Boulevard, Deerfield Beach, FL. The inside was really bright, and I mean that literally. The light bulbs had a yellow film over them, giving the whole restaurant this funky yellow glow. The service was nice and friendly, our cashier was Frank. I had the WOW Burger, $7.95, a burger made with spicy Turkish sausage. Mine had lettuce, cheddar and onions on top with fries on the side and a coke to drink, $3.00. The burger tasted like hot dog meat, but the onion ring sauce on the side and the fries were actually pretty good. They also say that their 'Big Single' burgers are big, but mine wasn't that big. Gimme A Burger is right down the road from Charm City Burger, and I would rather go to Charm City than Gimme A Burger. I give Gimme A Burger 3 1/2 sporks up!
I ate dinner at Charm City Burger Company located at 1136 East Hillsboro Boulevard, Deerfield Beach, Florida. The inside was small, colorful and cool. I ordered the El Diablo chicken sandwich, $6.50. It was a chicken patty soaked in 'Volcano Sauce', topped with jalapenos and melted pepper jack cheese with tater tots on the side and a Coke to drink, $3.00. It reminded me of the Big Red Chicken Sandwich from Miller's Ale House that I had a while ago. I took a bite of my sandwich and it was warm, a little spicy and very flavorful. The tater tots were really crunchy, but a bit too salty. I really enjoyed my chicken sandwich and I would like to come back and try some burgers. I give Charm City 5 sporks up!
I ate dinner at The Office located at 201 East Atlantic Avenue, Delray Beach, FL. The inside had a unique feeling, there were old Hollywood lights and books, cool cowhide chairs and mirrors. The table had place mats with funny quotes about not working, bosses and offices. The service was very friendly and fast, our waiter was named Oscar. Before we ordered, we met the manager, Marcel Buruiana, and the chef, Alex. They were very nice and informative about the menu and restaurant, we exchanged business cards. For an appetizer, we had the Grown Up Tater Tots, which were large fluffy tater tots with bacon and chives inside, served with sour cream and ketchup. They were like clouds in your mouth! The tots tasted like loaded baked potatoes. I loved them, they were the best tater tots I've ever had. For my meal, I had the Prime Boss Burger with fries. The burger patty was huge, tender and juicy. The office sauce was like tartar sauce with a kick and gave the burger extra zing. The bun had "The Office" name branded into it, like Burgerfi. The warm toasted bun tied all of these delicious elements together in the form of an amazing burger. Again, the best that I've ever had. To top it off, the fries were light and crunchy. For dessert, we had chocolate crust key lime pie, a red velvet cupcake and salted caramel bread pudding. I was amazed just by the looks of these desserts! The key lime pie was my favorite and actually better than mine mine! It wasn't quite as tangy, but made up for it in flavor! The chocolate crust was a nice touch too. The red velvet cupcake had cheesecake chunks inside and ice cream on top. This was my first time trying red velvet, it was very rich, sweet and fantastic. The bread pudding had a great salted caramel flavor and reminded me of my mom's monkey bread. I really enjoyed myself and had an awesome time, I would love to visit again someday. I give The Office 5 sporks up!
I ate dinner at Vic & Angelo's Coal Oven Enoteca, located at 290 East Atlantic Avenue, Delray Beach, FL 33444. The inside had cool chandeliers, red paint (which smells like blue paint) and wine bottles on the walls. We ate outside in big comfortable green chairs, which I really liked. Our waitress was Karen, she was friendly and helpful. We were served an awesome family style dinner. To start off, we had cheesy garlic bread along with chilies, pepperoni & cheese. The garlic bread was crispy and really cheesy. The chilies were amazing! They were a little spicy and super flavorful. The pepperoni and cheese were nice too. Then we had the Old School Kobe Meatball, a giant meatball with whipped ricotta and marinara sauce. It was huge, juicy, tender and delicious. Then we had the Originale Pizza, it was mouth watering. The crust was crispy and sprinkled with sugar and salt, it was the best pizza crust I've ever had. Then came the Oregenatta Trio, a plate of breaded calamari, lobster, and shrimp. The calamari was kind of rubbery and bland. The lobster and shrimp were OK. Next was the Spinach Salad with dried cranberries, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, Gorgonzola and a white balsamic vinaigrette dressing. I generally don't like mushrooms, but the salad itself was pretty good. Then we had Nona's Sunday Gravy (I really like that name), which was rigatoni with an Old School Kobe Meatball, pork, sausage and sauce. It looked like a mountain and was wonderful. Then I met the executive chef and creator of such awesomeness, Erick Miranda. He was really nice and obviously very skilled. Finally, the dessert came out. Holy crap! It was a colossal amount of cotton candy over a glass filled with marshmallows and gummy bears topped with a sparkler, served with a slice of banana cream pie, vanilla cake and zeppilies with powdered sugar and dipping sauces. The cotton candy was fresh. The banana cream pie was creamy and tasty. The vanilla cake was the best cake I've ever had! It was soft, moist and the frosting was heavenly. The zeppilies were like giant doughnut holes and out of this world. The dipping sauces were so rich that after each bite, I needed a glass of water in a good way. I really liked Vic & Angelo's and I'd love to come back. In a Wyatt Taste Good first, I give Vic & Angelo's 10 sporks up!!!
I ate lunch at Oceans 234 located at 234 North Ocean Boulevard, Deerfield Beach, FL 33441. The inside had high ceilings, cool chandeliers and was blue and white like the ocean. My mom and I ate outside on the patio. It had a beautiful ocean view and the ceiling fans kept us cool. The service was great, our waitress was Nicole. I had the sushi special, which was about ten pieces of sushi. It was made with eel, soft shell crab, avocado, cucumber and cream cheese. It was wrapped in seaweed and rice with eel sauce on top. It was served with wasabi, ginger, extra eel sauce and soy sauce. This was my first time eating sushi, and it was delicious. The eel tasted like chicken, the eel sauce was sweet and tasted like tea a little bit. The cream cheese and avocado were creamy, the crab was nice and tender. At the end of our meal, I got to meet the general manager, Tommy Mirisola, and the executive chef, Victor Franco. They gave me a tour of the kitchen. It was like my school kitchen, but shinier. After lunch, my mom and I took a nice walk on the Deerfield Beach International Fishing Pier. I had an awesome afternoon and I can't wait to go back, I give Oceans 234 5 sporks up!
I ate dinner at The Whale Raw Bar & Fish House located at 7619 North State Road 7, Parkland, FL 33073. The inside looked like a fishing sports bar with lots of cool mounted fish, whale bones, license plates and fish traps hanging around. Sean was our waiter. He was friendly, but a little slow. I ordered the blackened Mahi-Mahi sandwich with whale fries, $12.95, and a water to drink. When my sandwich came out, it was on a small plate, unlike everyone elses, and it didn't have my whale fries. They arrived later. The fish was tender and flaky, the bun was soft and warm, and the blackening seasoning was spicy and flavorfull. The whale fries were nice and crunchy, I could tell that they were homemade. I think the whale fries should be called chips, but that's just me. I hope to come back sometime. I give The Whale 4 sporks up!

This was my first time at The Whale, it was also my second interview (and my first one on TV)! I was interviewed by news reporter Janine Stanwood and her cameraman Donnie from Local 10 WPLG! The interview started at my house, where they asked me a lot of questions about food and my blog. After that, we went to dinner at The Whale. Janine and Donnie were really friendly and I had a lot of fun. I give them and my first TV interview 5 sporks up! Watch it here!
