Tongue & Cheek, Miami Beach.

I had brunch at Tongue & Cheek located at 431 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach, FL 33139. The inside was modern, industrial and very unique. There were funny paintings of bulls with hats on and cool things like that. Our waitress was very nice, her name was Claire. I ordered the 6 oz. skirt steak with potato hash, scrambled eggs and a sticky bun on the side with grapefruit juice to drink. The steak was cooked to perfection, it had great flavor and melted in my mouth. I can honestly say, it was the best steak that I ever had. The potato hash was like tater tots, good crunchy, zesty and delicious tater tots. The eggs weren't runny at all! The sticky bun had nuts and icing, it was warm and amazing. It tasted like something my family makes at home called 'monkey bread'.

Today, they had a special brunch called Little Monsters Halloween Bash. There were some Halloween themed menu items for the little kids and they were collecting non-perishable food donations for a charity called Feeding South Florida. Charity is always good. There were a bunch of kids wearing their Halloween costumes, including my little sister Ellie. Alyssa from Balloon Masterz was there and even though I may be too old for it, she made some really cool balloon art. I had a fun time and left full and happy. I would love to come back for brunch the next time I'm in Miami Beach. I give Tongue & Cheek 5 sporks up!!!

Chipotle Mexican Grill, Deerfield Beach.

I ate dinner at the Chipotle Mexican Grill located at 777 South Federal Highway, Deerfield Beach, FL 33442. Chipotle is a taco bar where you tell them the ingredients you like and they make you a burrito, taco, bowl or salad. The inside was brand new, nice and shiny. It kind of reminded me of Burgerfi. Everyone that worked there had a good attitude and a smile for me. I had a barbacoa burrito with the hot salsa, rice and lettuce, $7.20, chips & salsa, $1.95, and a Coke to drink, $1.80. It was a pretty big burrito and kind of hard to eat with my one good hand. It had a lot of flavor and just the right amount of spicy heat. My mouth was still watering after we left. Can't wait until the next time, I give Chipotle 5 sporks up!!!

W is for Wyatt.

My summer started out fun and relaxing, then something bad happened. I was skateboarding in front of my house when I hit a bump, fell backwards and broke both of the bones in my left forearm. It was a compound fracture, that means the bones came through the skin. My parents rushed me to the closest emergency room. There, the doctors gave me some morphine and tried to lay my arm as flat as they could before transferring me to a hospital that specialized in child treatment. An ambulance picked me up and took me to hospital number two. About eight hours after my injury, they finally reset my arm. They gave me sedatives that made me loopy afterwards, I did not like the way they made me feel. The next morning I had surgery where they cleaned out my arm, reset it a little better from the inside and gave me a cast. Luckily, I didn't need screws or pins. When I woke up from surgery, I was tired and a little sore. I had to stay one more night in the hospital just to make sure everything was OK. My arm doesn't hurt anymore, which is good, but I can't do a lot of things while it's healing, which stinks. I should be in a full arm cast for six weeks, then a short arm cast for four weeks, then a clam shell arm brace for about six months or so. Even though this was the most horrible experience of my life, it could have been much worse and I'm trying to make the best of it.

 My arm made a "W" for Wyatt.

Here I am charter fishing (with one arm) a couple of weeks after I got hurt.

Pasquale's Pizza Company, Coconut Creek.

I ate lunch at the Pasquale's Pizza Company located at 4690 North State Road 7, Coconut Creek, FL 33073. The inside had high ceilings, stacked stone walls and many TV's. It was pretty nice, especially for a pizza place. We ordered a large pepperoni pizza, $19.45, for my brother, sister and me. My parents got Caesar salads. This was the best pizza that I've ever had! It was fresh and hot from the oven. The crust was delicious, not too crispy or too soft, just right. I liked mine with garlic, red pepper flakes and Parmesan cheese on top. Pasquale's is now my new favorite restaurant for pizza and I would love to come back again. I give Pasquale's 5 sporks up!!!

Snapper's, Key Largo.

While I was still on vacation in the Florida Keys, I ate dinner at Snapper's located at 139 Seaside Avenue, Key Largo, FL 33037, MM 94.5. We ate outside, the weather was beautiful and we had an amazing water view. Our waiter was super friendly, his name was Finger, that's right Finger! For an appetizer we got the conch fritters, $10.49. They were served with fritter sauce. They weren't as good as the Key Largo Conch House fritters, but they were OK. I ordered the original mahi fish sandwich, $11.99. The fish was juicy, tender and had a nice blackened flavor. For dessert, I had the key lime pie, $3.75. It was more sweet than tangy, but still delicious. I will definitely go back the next time that I'm in the Keys, I give Snapper's 5 sporks up!!!

Key Largo Conch House, Key Largo.

When I was on vacation in the Florida Keys, I ate lunch at the Key Largo Conch House located at 100211 Overseas Highway, Key Largo, FL 33037, MM 100.2. It is known for it's conch fritters. The place was pretty small, so we ate outside under the tent. Our server's name was Maria, she wasn't especially friendly or fast. We had three orders of conch fritters, $8.95 each. As you know, I love conch fritters, these were the best fritters that I had on my entire vacation. They were good sized, warm, soft and delicious dipped into the tangy fritter sauce. I really enjoyed myself and we always try to stop by the Key Largo Conch House when we visit The Keys. I give the Conch House 5 sporks up!!!

Benihana, Coral Springs.

I ate dinner at the Benihana located at 1695 N University Drive, Coral Springs, Florida 33071. It was my dad's birthday. The inside had a lot of bamboo and Japanese characters. Our server was Becky and our chef was Kam. Becky was nice, but slow and Chef Kam was amazing. He did cool things with the food the the was preparing. He took onions and made them into a volcano! He took the shrimp tails and flipped them onto the top of his hat! I ordered the spicy hibachi chicken with chicken fried rice, $19.50. First we were served Japanese onion soup. I really liked the soup, it tasted a lot like French onion soup. Next came the shrimp. It was especially good dipped in their cream sauce. When Chef Kam gave me my chicken, I was astonished that he could put on such a show and cook so well too. The chicken had a weird spicy flavor. It wasn't buffalo, jerked, or pepper hot. It was another hot and I liked it. It was very tender and I enjoyed eating with my chopsticks. For dessert, I had the sherbet. It was very creamy and fruity. I hadn't had sherbet in a long time, and it was very good to have it again. I had a lot of fun and I would love to come back for my birthday! I give Benihana's 5 sporks up!!!

My South Beach Food Tour Experience.

I went on the South Beach Food Tour with my mom. Our tour guide was friendly and very knowledgeable, her name was Marie. In between the restaurant stops, Marie told us about the local history of South Beach. We also learned about the different kinds of architectural styles from different time periods in the area. It was a very interesting and I learned a lot. Our first stop was a Colombian tavern called Bolivar, 661 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach, FL 33139. The inside had a lot of wine bottles on the walls. The adults were served a drink that was a Colombian beer mixed with Colombian cream soda, I just got the soda. It was like a lot of other cream sodas I've had, but it was red. We were served Colombian ceviche, a corn empanata with potatoes and beef inside and ahi sauce on the side. I've never had ceviche before. It had a mustard citrus marinade with onions and popcorn, which was just popped on the inside. It was a nice change of pace compared to other fish that I've had before. The corn empanata was crunchy and the filling was very hearty.

Our next stop was Manolo, 685 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach, FL 33139. Manolo is an Argentinian cafeteria and everything is made from scratch. We all had churros. Okay, let's start with the outside, it was covered in cinnamon and sugar. The inside was amazing, it was filled with warm and sweet dolce de leche. It was the best churro that I've ever had and I would love to go back and have another one.

Our third stop was at a Cuban joint called Habano's, 1200 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach, FL 33139. It used to be called Polo Norte. We had mariquitas, bacafrita sliders with chimichurry sauce and a ham croquette. The sliders were tender and had a little kick to it from the chimichurry sauce. I didn't really enjoy the croquette. It is what I imagine a dog treat tastes like.

Our next stop was The Tides, 1220 Ocean Drive, Miami Beach, FL 33139. It was a restored old bar with the original floors and turtle shells on the walls. It was very cool. The adults were served a mango margarita. I had a mango smoothie, but my mom says that they tasted about the same. It had a sweet tropical flavor. I got quite a few brain-freezes.

Our fifth stop was an Italian pizza place called Blocks Pizza Deli, 1447 Washington Drive, Miami Beach, FL 33139. We had the sun dried hippie pocket. I was a big fan of the bread. The inside had sun dried tomatoes, feta cheese, spinach and kalamata olives. It had a nice tang and cheesy flavor. I would get it again, definitely.

Our last stop was at an Italian gelato shop called Milani's Gelateria, 436 Espanola Way, Miami Beach, FL 33139. It had a rotating wheel of gelato flavors! We were given two scoops of our choice. I had the pistachio and Oreo gelato. It was the best gelato I've ever had! It was creamy, sweet, nutty and salty. I would love to try Milani's again.

I left the tour full and satisfied. It was a very fun afternoon and I would love to take another one of their tours. As a Wyatt Tastes Good special event, I give the South Beach Food Tour 10 sporks up!!!
