Filet Mignon Sliders and Stuffed Chicken Wings From Sauced Up Food Truck

Sauced Up
South Florida, the food truck loves you: warm weather all year long, a melting pot of culture and cuisine from Broward to Palm Beach, and hungry people eager to stand in line for whatever can be procured from a giant kitchen on wheels.

Since the food-truck trend started several year ago, the meals on wheels have appeared in packs, overtaking neighborhoods, unleashing feeding frenzies in parking lots as far north as Jupiter and Wellington and all the way south to Miami.

Each year, still more hit the streets for the first time, hoping to win the crowds with special takes and fusions with the familiar favorites. So it comes as no surprise that one such food truck, Sauced Up, has taken the slider and chicken wing and upped the ante.

Candela in Wilton Manors Mixes Mediterranean and More

Categories: Review

In Spain, food has a different meaning. It's both fuel and fun, consumed and enjoyed in a series of small, snack-like bites throughout the day. This all begins with a family meal, meat from a whole pig's leg sliced onto bread for a portable breakfast.

As the workday rolls to a halt, you quiet a growling belly with a quick stop at the local tasca, the working man's tavern, where tiny pintxos, tapas, and montaditos are washed down with wine and beer.

Later, you'll stroll home to enjoy the final meal of the day, a late-night feast and a few bottles of wine shared with friends and family that can stretch long past midnight.

In South Florida, where the recent small-plate obsession has tainted our palates (and pockets) with pricey, upmarket concept foods, we have no understanding of the Spanish art of celebrating food and drink.

Sbarro, Food Court in Galleria Mall Temporarily Closed Due to Roach, Rodent Activity

Categories: The Inspector

Sbarro has long been the "go-to" place for a quick slice and a Coke at shopping malls and airports, maintaining its business by being the "safer" alternative to a fast snack than, say, a hot dog or a pulled pork sandwich at the food court. Until now.

Third Annual FondueRaiser Supporting Lynn Cancer Institute's League of Ribbons Initiative

Categories: Happening


Three for three is the breakdown of times and years that the Greater Boca Raton's Chamber of Commerce Boca Festival Days, the Alliance Association Bank and Boca Raton Regional Hospital have partnered up to promote the Lynn Cancer Institute's League of Ribbons initiative.

The League of Ribbons strives to support patients at the Institute in need of financial assistance during their treatments as well as for wellness education, wellness programs and secondary support areas; which are all worthy peripheral endeavors.

The Melting Pot, the restaurant of sizzling oils and cheese/chocolate pots has not shied away from getting involved in the endeavors of these organizations in the past and the Boca Raton locale will host this year's "FondueRaiser."

Beyond Meat's New Beast Burger 'Sizzles, Sweats, Satiates' Says CEO Ethan Brown

Courtesy of Beyond Meat
The Beast Burger, being beasty.

Meat is delicious. Nobody said it wasn't (well, almost nobody). But it's also wreaking havoc on earth's environment, screwing with human health, and leading to the violent deaths of billions of animals a year. Raising meat for food is problematic, at best.

Lucky for everyone, there are innovative companies working to make even better versions of the real thing, so carnivores can have their cows and eat them too.

Leading the charge is Beyond Meat (you may have seem them on The Today Show? Ellen? Good Morning America?). We spoke to CEO Ethan Brown on the company's new Beast Burger, how plants make better meat than, well, meat, and MLB players eating plants.

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.

Florida Beer: Maple Orange Imperial Caramel Cream Ale From Due South Brewing

Doug Fairall

It's #FloridaBeerFriday. Every Friday, we take a look at a beer brewed in the Sunshine State, giving analysis to the burgeoning craft-beer movement of Florida.

This week, we look at a self-described beer "curiosity" in the form of Due South Brewing Co.'s inaugural entry in its Curiosity Series, a range of beers that aims to push the Boynton Beach brewery's brewing envelope.

"For our first release in the Curiosity Series," the company stated, "we started with our Imperial Caramel Cream Ale and incorporated the flavors and aromas of Florida oranges and maple syrup for a unique flavor profile we've never tasted anywhere before."

If a food truck is good enough for Phillip Phillips, it's good enough for us!
South Florida food trucks were the focus of a Good Morning America segment on the safety and cleanliness of the mobile eateries.

Blogger Burger Beast alerted us to the three-minute feature that cites a recent study conducted by the Institute for Justice. In the report, titled "Street Eats, Safe Eats," the civil liberties law firm researched more than a quarter of a million restaurant and food-truck inspection reports in seven cities, including Miami.
