Mangez! A Pop-Up Creperie Serves Dinner and Dessert at Bar Stache

Mangez! Facebook
Typically, a pop-up bar or restaurant is the sort of thing you hear about through a friend or someone always in-the-know when it comes to all things edible in the local area. Temporary eateries are intriguing places, whispers of some high-profile chef collaborating with a local venue to offer patrons a glimpse at something cutting edge in the culinary world. They often leave your taste buds singing -- and then disappear without a trace.

But the pop-up restaurant at Bar Stache 1920's Drinking Den in Fort Lauderdale is nothing like that, and it isn't going anywhere anytime soon. At least, we hope not.

With the polar vortex dumping buckets of snow, this has been an intense winter for those up north.

While our northern brethren have been freezing their asses off, we've been chilling out in the sun with one of the warmest Florida winters on record.

As much as we'd like to brag, it's spring break season now, and our beaches are starting to fill up with wasted college students looking to catch a tan (or a burn, really).

Spring break is about to take over Fort Lauderdale Beach, which means we're going to have a ton of coeds looking to find some cheap eats.

Whether your always on the hunt for a deal or you're trying to find an affordable alternative to McDonald's and ramen, we've picked five places to eat for less than ten bucks on Fort Lauderdale Beach.

First Look: Colombian Food at Los Parceros in West Palm Beach

Nicole Danna
The Los Parceros burger with two tostones "buns."
When you think of Colombian food in South Florida, the first thing that probably comes to mind is Colombian fast food -- those overstuffed hot dogs and hamburgers with every topping known to man (and then some). And you'd be correct; The Colombians have taken these simple American eats and turned them into edible masterpieces, piled with a colorful collage of ketchup, mayonnaise, rosada and salsa piƱa -- the essential pineapple puree -- all atop boiled hot dogs and hamburger patties finished with cheese, potato chips, bacon and shredded beef or chicken.

But finding truly authentic Colombian fare north of Dade County -- especially in Palm Beach -- isn't easy. Now, it doesn't have to be thanks to Los Parceros, a restaurant named for the Colombian slang term that roughly translates to amigo -- but more like your "partner in crime" type amigo. Here, the partners in crime would be co-owners Amanda Olmstead and Karina Patino, who opened Los Parceros early last year, just off the Florida Turnpike at the Okeechobee exit. Together, they offer traditional Colombian fare, from the familiar empanadas and tostones, to more culture-specific dishes like aborrajado, salchipapa, rellenitos and a family recipe for bandeja paisa.

Poutine Dog
Classic Canadian poutine from Poutine Dog in Lake Worth.
South Florida food lovers, meet Poutine Dog in Lake Worth -- one of the first restaurants of its kind to bring an authentic taste of the unofficial national dish of Canada to the area.

What is poutine? Basically, it's a simple combination of seasoned fresh-cut fries, homemade gravy, and soured milk (OK, cheese curd). In other words, comfort food -- Canadian-style. And at Poutine Dog in downtown Lake Worth, they've taken the traditional fast food dish to the next level, adding an assorted array of gourmet toppings. You can choose from lobster, smoked meat, BBQ pulled pork, chicken, braised beef brisket, sausage, bacon, veggies and a range of sauces to drench it with.

Starbucks For a Buck? Here's How

Starbucks iced coffee is a buck today.
Starbucks. After all that's said and done, the coffee chain that made the Venti Frappuccino a household word is still one of our favorite places.

Maybe it's the fact that no matter where you go on the planet, Starbucks still looks like your neighborhood coffee house. Maybe it's because we need a place to charge our freaking iPhone for 15 minutes. Or, maybe because they sell caffeinated beverages in a world that tires us out every minute.

La Michoacana Natural: Authentic Mexican Ice Cream Stand in Lake Worth

Categories: Dirt Cheap Eats

Nicole Danna
La Michoacana Natural serves up authentic Latin flavors like this, their version of mamey fruit ice cream.
There seems to be a perennial line at the walk-up window to the small stucco building at the corner of Congress Ave. and 2nd Ave. N that houses La Michoacana Natural, the Mexican ice cream shop in heart of Lake Worth. Whether it's the middle of winter, or a blistering-hot summer day, they come -- dozens at a time -- for a small taste of some of the best homemade ice creams, ices and authentic Mexican street fare around.

While it's not strange to see nearly every ethnicity in South Florida standing in line at La Michoacana, if you're not a Spanish speaker do yourself a favor and do a little research on Mexican ice cream before visiting -- or at the very least bring a smartphone with a translater app or a street-wise Latin American with you. Many of the staff don't speak a word of English, and if you have questions beyond what a single pointed finger can convey, they may go unanswered.

Time to pay your taxes.
Today is April 15, the annual deadline to file your income tax returns.

Though there's really no one who actually likes filing taxes (let's face it -- even if you get a refund, the fact that you have to save a shoebox of receipts each year is enough to kill any joy derived from the fact Uncle Same has decided to give you back some of your own money).

The only good thing to come from tax day?  The freebies and deals that some restaurants offer as a way to compensate the headache of it all. Here's a list of some of our favorite offers:
