Snowbird Dining Guide: Ten South Florida Restaurants to Hit Up

Categories: Interviews, Lists
So much whiz. So little napkins.
2. Direct From Philly
It's probably counterintuitive to put a place that specializes in Philadelphia fare on a list of places to frequent in South Florida, but if you show me a place that can do it better, I'll retract this entry. You can order cheese steaks all over Broward and Palm Beach, but have you ever ordered one from a place that operates out of a gas station? Direct From Philly is one of the few places around to serve its sandwiches with Cheese Whiz and on bread shipped from the cheese-steak homeland (Amoroso's). It has killer garlic teriyaki wings too.

1. Latin Bohemia Grill
If the extent of your Latin food experience is Pollo Tropical, you may or may not need to try Latin Bohemia for authentic Cuban grub. Last time I was there, I had churrasco, but definitely try the masas de cerdo (fried pork). You know it's legit when the beans have soaked and simmered and don't come out of a can. Extra points if you can order in Spanish.

@Jill_farber jills all those places are so dank I'm so hungry


@pinkieohfour Let's finish the list by the end of the year


Tom Jenkins & Ga Pig are only good by SoFla standards. Porky & Beth's BBQ at Bedner's in Boynton is a good one.
