I absolutely love Chinese food. Not takeout, but real, authentic Chinese food. My mother and her side of the family is Chinese (with a bit of German), and I grew up surrounded by this magnificent culture and delicious cuisine. I was very fortunate to have had a grandmother who cooked Chinese food for us and who luckily passed on her wonderful gift to my mother. My all-time favorite is home cooked Chinese food, but when that’s not available, I have some local spots that can satisfy my cravings.
If you haven’t eaten at Pubbelly, you don’t know what you’re missing! It’s an amazing “gastropub” located in Miami Beach, in the Purdy area. Pubbelly is the original restaurant, and following its successful opening, more restaurants from the same group have sprung up: Pubbelly Sushi, Barceloneta, Macchialina and most recently, PBSteak. I have eaten at all except PBSteak, which just opened this month.
Pubbelly, like most of the restaurants in the group, serves its dishes on small plates, so it’s a great place to try many dishes. In September I went with five friends and we experienced a culinary feast!
