While shopping on Lincoln Road in Miami we stopped for lunch at the Sushi Samba chain restaurant. Their cuisine is Peruvian and Japanese fusion. I’ve eaten at Sushi Samba Rio before in Chicago and liked it so we decided to take a table outside and people watch. Lincoln Road is great for that. We saw a lot of interesting looking people and the cutest dogs!

Jerry’s Famous Deli

During our trip to Miami for the South Beach Food and Wine Festival we stopped at Jerry’s Famous Deli for lunch. Jerry’s has locations in California and Miami and are known for their extensive menu – over 600 items! Here’s what we ended up ordering:

Cuban sandwich with slaw and potato salad


French toast with a side of fresh fruit


The food wasn’t really noteworthy. Basic diner/deli style food. We gave it a try because we heard that the history of the building is pretty neat.


It was originally called Hoffman’s Cafeteria when it opened in the 30’s, then it became the Warsaw Ballroom. In the 80’s it was a gay nightclub that celebrities like Madonna and Gianni Versace frequented. It was also a building that was used in Miami Vice!

Stonyfield Farm Oikos Organic Greek Yogurt

March 11, 2009


Seriously Oikos, where have you been all my life. I had you for the first time and you blew my mind.

The BF is a big yogurt fan – me not so much – but we usually buy in bulk to have on hand, although I never thought to buy organic Greek yogurt. My frugality leads me to the Kirkland brand at Costco, but after my life-altering experience with Stonyfield Farm Oikos Organic Greek Yogurt, I will never buy any other yogurt again. ever. I’ll shell out a few extra bucks for this liquid gold.

I tried the honey on the bottom flavor – a yummy combination of sweet and tangy. The yogurt was light and fluffy which made it incredibly refreshing, which I normally don’t think of when I’m eating yogurt. The honey was great too. I know what you’re thinking…that’s a dumb flavor because you can just add your own honey to plain yogurt, but trust me on this one. The consistency of the honey was perfect for blending into the yogurt. When I’ve added honey to yogurt in the past it’s usually too thick straight from the bottle.

Sounds insane, but I was  happy and sad at the same time as I was eating it. Halfway through I was so happy I had found something that tasted this great. This stuff is definitely something I know I wont get sick of. Then I started to get sad as I was reaching the bottom of the cup. I only gotten 2 at the store to try – 1 for me and 1 for the BF. Stupid!

I’m not usually this crazy about brands, but this is different. I even went to the Stonyfield Farm website to check it out and guess what?! There are coupons!
