Culinary Miami Tour: From a Delicious Ham Bocadillo to a Lovely Glass of Verdejo

A perfect day in Miami is a day on the beach and going for a Spanish gastronomic experience that only this palm-tree filled paradise can provide

Begin your day by driving over the Rickenbacker Causeway from the big city, surrounded by turquoise water and lush vegetation. A gorgeous sunrise will welcome you on your way to Key Biscayne Island. Key Biscayne has terrific beaches and the added appeal of being sandwiched between two major parks – Crandon Park to the north and Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park to the south, the views are just breathtaking!

When you arrive at the National Park, take a moment to walk in the sand  towards the lighthouse to open up your appetite and if you follow our suggestions you have already ordered ahead and packed a delicious breakfast: sandwich with Jamón Ibérico from the online store, Iberico Club. A heavenly delight for lovers of Spanish cuisine! The store has a cured meats selection of the finest artisan gourmet products from Spain.

Rent a bike and enjoy a ride around the island. Many wonders to discover and so much nature to see.  Once you have soaked up the sun, you might begin to think about your next unique gastronomic experience. We’ve got you! Just a 20 minute drive away, you will find Bulla GastroBar, right in the heart of Coral Gables and next to Miracle Mile —a nice area to walk and shop. Bulla GastroBar Restaurant is a destination for those who enjoy Spanish tapas and cocktails. Bulla offers a view of the bustling open kitchen that allows you to see the delicious dishes they prepare on the spot. Enjoy the outside patio, and a special lunch menu featuring a variety of tapas and tasty entrées. If you have room for dessert, order “churros con chocolate”, a choice you won’t regret!  If you feel like walking a bit after the banquet, there are many things to do in the same area: Granada Golf Course is a beautiful place to watch the sunset or visit the famous Venetian Pool to cool off!

Finally, you can’t miss the iconic Wynwood neighborhood, home to art galleries, retail stores, antique shops, eclectic bars and more. Visit the Wynwood Walls, the Urban Outdoors Graffiti Museum and to end the evening right, enjoy a nice dinner at LEKU Restaurant.

LEKU features innovative cuisine without losing sight of its Basque roots. The restaurant also offers ‘al fresco’ dining and some of the best Spanish wines such as Albariño (Galicia), Hondarrabi Zuri (Basque Country) and Garnacha + (Rioja), among others. Such a delightful way to end an evening in the beautiful city of Miami.
