Burgers are becoming gastronomic creations.

This is most evident with Gimme a Burger, a fast-casual burger restaurant chain with locations in Pembroke Pines and Deerfield Beach founded in South Florida by Yasmin and Serhad Oktay. Its infused burgers are something to consider the next time you're in the mood for more than lettuce, tomato, and beef.

Thai iced tea is made from strong-brewed Ceylon tea.
With a neon orange hue and pungent, herbal aroma, Thai iced tea is a perfect way to beat the end-of-summer heat in South Florida. It's also something you don't often see on the menu at your local Thai restaurant. In Southeast Asia, however, it's the drink of choice.

In Broward and Palm Beach counties, only a handful of restaurants are known to serve it. One family of restaurants makes it from scratch almost daily -- no pre-made mixes or fake food coloring.

Killer Pastrami Sandwiches at Blue Willy's Barbecue, But Only on Thursdays

Nicole Danna
The brisket pastrami sandwich from Blue Willy's Barbecue in Pompano Beach.
Most Texans will tell you the secret to blue-ribbon brisket is hours and hours of slow, smoky, moist heat. It's what helps transform the meat's connective tissue (all that collagen) to a gelatinous, tender state. Most barbecue places take a hunk of flat cut beef to undergo the process; rarely do you see a place that takes the navel plate end of the brisket to make pastrami.

Lucky for us, Blue Willy's in Pompano Beach is one of them.

It's not every day you get to sample something so decadently delicious. Which is probably why owner Will Banks doesn't serve it every day.

Gov. Rick Scott Approves Medical Marijuana: Five Places to Pick Up Some Munchies Before You Get Stoned

Categories: Eat This

Rhino Doughnuts & Coffee
Well, we did it, Florida: Medical marijuana has been signed into law by Gov. movie villain Rick Scott.

While it's not time to pull the bongs out just yet -- the bill allows only the use of a noneuphoric strain (it won't get you high) to treat certain diseases -- it's a major step forward in our half-conservative state.

Anyway, we just want to make sure you're ready in case full legalization goes into effect. Or just to give you some advice for your ahead-of-the-law habits, in case you're in need.

Rather than be at the mercy of chain delivery pizza or greasy Chinese takeout, we've compiled a list of five dishes to pick up before you get stoned.

Green Bar & Kitchen Now Serving Gluten-Free, Nut-Free Vegan Ice Cream

Categories: Eat This

Ice cream is one of the world's greatest pleasures. In fact, we love it so much we may or may not have had a tab at the local parlor as a kid.

While most of us try not to eat the icy lactose-filled treat often due to dietary concerns, there are some poor souls who can't eat the sweet milk of the gods period.

Others abstain due to ethical concerns.

Either way, we feel bad for the non-ice-cream-eating segment of the population.

Green Bar & Kitchen has taken matters into its own hands. The vegan, gluten-free hot spot is now serving vegan ice cream that's suitable for most allergies, even nuts.

Reef jerky is real.
The legalization of marijuana throughout the United States is a growing reality. More and more, citizens are lobbying their states to legalize pot. So far, Colorado and Washington have OK'd pot for medical and recreational use (albeit with regulations and restrictions) and several other states have legalized medical marijuana. The movement is growing, with Florida voters deciding on whether to legalize medical marijuana in November.

That means that we're going to need more pot. And there's more than one way to "smoke" weed. Introducing "Reef Jerky", the totally brilliant product for the Paleo pothead in you.
