ROOM WITH A VIEW
THE VIEW FROM THE ROOFTOP AT THE BETSY HOTEL
So, we flew to the the most fab hotel ever in Miami - The SLS! Oh my god, this place is so stunning and we had such an amazing time there! As this blog post is all about food however, I won't go into too much detail about what we did and focus on the restaurants!
We did have breakfast in the hotel to start the day, I was still pretty tired so just had a simple green tea and avocado on toast where as hubby went for patatas bravas with an egg - sounds pretty hardcore, looked pretty hardcore and tasted it too!
The first restaurant that we visited was a really basic and simple place but the food was awesome! it was called 'La Sandwicherie' and was on South Beach. Vicky at the SLS concierge highly recommended it and she was definitely not wrong! I went for a tropical salad and hubby had a giant sandwich! Seriously yummy, but then had to pass out infront of the pool after to recover ha ha!
CHICKEN SANDWICH - ON ANOTHER LEVEL!
That night we then went for dinner at the AMAZING Katsuya in our hotel. This place so absolutely gorgeous! Fab Japanese food and perfect for me as you can roll out of the restaurant with a full belly up into your bed ha ha!
We had some delicious food, I don't think I took pics of everything as I was a bit too excited, but you know the food must be good when you order sprouts and your husband eats most of them ha ha! They were like a deep fried teriyaki sprout - still salivating thinking about them! We also ordered edamame - because hey! who doesn't right?? Black cod plus some other munchies!
We also had a dessert which they ever so sweetly did a 'Happy Birthday' design on. It looks a bit weird - kind of sweet soup but tasted delicious! I think they had big marshmallows in them
Sorry about the quality of the pictures but I just needed to tuck in :)

A warm caramel milk chocolate custard, white miso cake, charred marshmallows and a sugar lace crunch
So, that was my birthday! The next day we decided to go for a walk around Lincoln Avenue and found that there were loads of restaurants about so we ended up eating at Paul for breakfast. this became a bit of a habit and we ate there everyday! Can't beat pastries for breakfast ;)
PASTRIES AT PAUL
Then, lunch was at the hotel but dinner was a naughty one! As we walked around Miami we discovered there was a Shake Shack there - now unfortunately we can not walk past this place without going in... so yeh... that was our dinner! Of course, if you're having a burger for dinner, then you got to follow it with ice cream right?? RIGHT!
2 CHEESEBURGERS AND CHEESY FRIES - YEH NOT SO MUCH A FAN OF THE FRIES
BEST ICE CREAM EVER! - STRAWBERRY OF COURSE!
Then, the next day we went for dinner at the 'ever so cool' Baoli' in South Beach. Very cool venue where we had lamb chops, squid salad, teriyaki salmon, asparagus and tiger prawns! yummy!
Then, on our final day we visited Cleo across the road for lunch. They did a really simple sandwich lunch menu so we ordered a roasted veggie and also a chicken sandwich - such a nice place and we had the sweetest waitress ever!
So that was my trip! What a way to spend my 30th! If you ever have the opportunity to visit Miami I highly recommend it. Such a great vibe about the place, lots of shopping and my oh my - lots and lots of amazing restaurants!
Hope you enjoyed the pics!
