Miami Street Food Fest Rolling Into Town this Spring

The Miami Street Food Fest could one day be bigger than the South Beach Wine and Food Festival, but it'll have to get its wheels on the road first.

This spring, the first annual Fest will welcome carts, trucks, vendors, tents, and the people who love them to some as yet unnamed slab of concrete for gratuitous edification of flavor receptors, or to, you know, eat.

The festival is the brainchild of Cristina Sotolongo and Burger Beast Sef Gonzales who have already created a festival website, Facebook, and Twitter account. All they've gotta do now is get a location, vendors, licenses, and people to show up.

Those are just details. The idea is great because the festival can bring together all the great flavors of Miami. From Dr. Spice and his fresh machete'd coconut drinks, to Bullfrog's low brow gourmet takes on the classics, authentic thai spring rolls, Caribbean chicken, Colombian steak, Peruvian Ceviche, Mexican tacos, Barbados smoothies, there's plenty of fire in Dade County. Compounding it all into one culinary cultural mashup is one hell of an idea.

We're looking forward to it.
