Fooq’s Offers a Fantastic Miami Spice Menu

With over 200 restaurants to choose from, Miami Spice can be daunting for diners. Figuring out which restaurants are worth your money is a mission; there are just so many menus to review. We’ll make your decision easy: Run — don’t walk — to Fooq’s for Miami Spice.

When it comes to Miami Spice, we look for a few things. The main thing, though, is variety. We’ve encountered our fair share of restaurants that phone this two-month promotion in with boring options like chicken breast or another bland choice.

Instead, Fooq’s puts some of its best dishes up on display. Appetizers like the Four Hearts of Sharazi (cucumber, celery hearts, spiced nut vinaigrette) and Crispy Honey Glazed Brussels Sprouts with green garlic yogurt are to die for. With regards to the latter, we left nothing on the plate. (Note to self: Get the recipe for that yogurt). We wish all vegetables tasted this good — we’d be a lot healthier if they did.

You can’t go wrong with either of those two choices or the Fooq’s Meatballs, a menu staple. Just make sure to save room for one of three Miami Spice entrees. The beloved bucatini, which has been on the menu since Fooq’s opened, is available as is a new favorite of ours: the Kebab Platter. 

Kebab platters don’t usually invoke much excitement in us, but damnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn. The lamb, kushari rice and mint yogurt together make one heck of a first impression. The vegetarian option — Khoresh Aloo — is another standout with sour cherries and carrots that you can’t stop eating once you start. 

You have two options for dessert. Those wanting to keep things simple can opt for the Local Gelato Sampler (in our case, pistachio gelato). It’s no nonsense, fragrant and delicious. Does your diet start Monday? If so, then get the Blonde Cremeux. It’s not often we say something like this, but it’s the best dessert we’ve had in a loooooooong time (and we love our sweets). Roasted white chocolate mousse and stout cake crumble put this treat over the top for us. We would gladly pay the $39 for this alone — that’s how impressed we were.

You have until September 30 to enjoy Miami Spice at Fooq’s. We suggest you don’t waste any time and head over ASAP. Today, tomorrow, next week … just go.
