Indeed , Subrageous

Subrageous is a great little spot hidden in one of the many strip malls along 8th street , better know in local circles as the  infamous Calle Ocho . Located at 1553 SW 107 AVE , Just across from Florida International University this is a spot that focus on one thing good food at a good price . Just a heads up to all the FIU Students out in cyber space they offer a 10% discount with a FIU student I.D. Card . First thing youll notice when you walk in is that more than likely there is a line . Dont worry though , once you get up to the counter to yell your order to one the many older women behind the counter everything is quick , almost frantic.You never are too sure who you are talking to, which is kind of disconcerting until you take your first bite of the delicious sandwich. Even with all the craziness that was ordering everything was perfect.The sandwich had everything I asked for, but more importantly nothing you didn't. The best part about the whole outing is how gentle it is on your wallet.the average sub costs between $4.50 and $8 . For that you get your choice of hot or cold sliced deli meat, choice of cheese and fresh veggies all on an entire loaf of delicious white out wheat bread. One thing these ladies don't know is an empty stomach. There is a nice little dining room to sit down and eat, but know that they do charge a $0.50 fee for a refill on fountain drinks. Just like must sub shops they have the usual assortment of chips and cookies. . This place is definitely a fantastic place to stop in and grab lunch when you are in the university park area of the sweetwater neighborhood of Miami.

Marlins Park Edition

I know that it isin't a local little place , but the hottest new place in Miami is located on the spot of the historic Orange Bowl in the little Havana neighborhood . Thats right Marlins fans , We have a Ballpark now. Besides watching the 'Fish take home  a win , my second favorite park of going to the ballpark is the food .
You can get the typical ballpark fare , but also local specialties best enjoyed in the city .  One big thing when taking the family out to the ballpark is just how much everything costs, but the marlins have things to ease the strain on your wallet when it comes to feeding the family . They have a refillable popcorn bucket for $6.50 , and a refillable soda in a collectable cup for about $8 . The refills are unlimited , and available at basically every food vendor around the concourse .

Now for the good stuff . One thing that you don't see in the typical ballpark is fresh seafood . But it would be almost foolish to call Marlins Park a typical ballpark . The fish from the miami institution Don Camaron , avaible at the Taste Of Miami consession is fantastic . The fresh fish ceviche is the BOMB! no other way to describe it . Priced at only $10 its a fresh taste for a fresh new momument to Miami . Don't worry though , they dont get the fish from the  home plate backstop. More to come as the season progresses at Marlins park. Go Fish ! in un related news Congratulations to Chris Bosh on his first born son Jackson. What a great way to celebrate than to put the Miami Heat up 3-0 against the Knickerbockers in the garden.

And in the Beginning there was hunger

South Florida is the playground the for world elite . But what if you aren't one of the upper crust , and your stomach is fiending for something that isin't served looking more like a Picasso than a meal . My whole mission is to show culinary treasures off the beaten path . To showcase the people and flavor of south florida .
