Burgie Award Winners and Velvet Creme Doughnuts Return

For six years and counting, local blogger Burger Beast has been honoring the unsung heroes of South Florida's food community with the Burgie Awards. This year's annual award show, which took place on Saturday at Milander Park, rounded up more than 25 trucks and thousands of attendees eager to see if their vote had made a difference.

It was the first time the Burgie Awards were held in Hialeah. Burger Beast says it made him extremely happy to be able to bring the event to the city since most of his readership comes from there. But the sixth annual Burgie Awards were also special because they marked the return of Velvet Crème Doughnuts, which sold 6,000 of their hole in one-glazed cakes.
