What local restaurants or businesses do you recommend?For Thai:Bangkok City – everything is good. Especially the fried rice and the peanut sauce. The peanut salad is incredible. Origins on the Key is also great. They have a bunch of different cuisines - Thai, Malaysian, Japanese – but it’s not fusion. They have different dishes from each style. The Malaysian roti is really good. For Tacos: El Toro Taco – we get everything, it’s all well made, and you can’t go wrong. Las Carnitas – the mole is real. You would never pull over and think to eat there. It is a little window with seating on 8th street. You need to be taken there.
What local restaurants or businesses do you recommend?Every Sunday or Monday evening, like clockwork, I get take out from Tropical Chinese. Also, Madruga Bakery. My wife is French and her parents are French and make baguette requests when I go to see them in Clearwater, FL.

What local restaurants or businesses do you recommend?If you are in Fort Lauderdale, there is a place called Green Bar. They have great vegan food. I am vegan, but once a year I have poke in Hawaii. For a good bottle of wine, go to Happy Wine in Coconut Grove. You are surrounded by wine and can sit in the middle and order some food. If you eat seafood – they have a great grilled octopus.
What local restaurants or businesses do you recommend?Anything that chef Niven Patel does. Ghee is our all-time favorite and he just opened Mamey in South Miami. Then, we go every week to Babes Meat and Counter. We just ride our bikes there. Darren toggles between the Bahn Mi and the Cuban sandwich. I toggle between the BLT and the burger and Scout always gets the BLT.
What local restaurants or businesses do you recommend?Maria Corona Produce. It's a local farm and they have a really killer selection. It's close you your warehouse at 184th and 157th ave. If you're willing to take a drive out to eighth street street, Taquerias El Mexicanos is one of the best taco places in Miami. It's one of the few restaurants that get something different every time. There's Miwi, which is a local good Cuban place. There's Al Rancho Grande, another great Mexican spot. And, there's El Tambo Grill for Peruvian rotisserie chicken, rice and beans.
