Since starting the blog, we’ve interviewed many members of the hospitality industry, and one constant among the interviewees has been a profound love for their pets. We thought it would be great to share this love with our readers.

That’s why we launched an ongoing feature called “Wag Wednesday” to showcase industry peeps and their pets. Know someone who wants to be featured? Email us at bark@miamifoodpug.com.

Coyo Taco Brings Tasty Tacos and Tortas to Brickell

Coyo Taco - Brickell - Welcome

Brickell residents and visitors have a new place to get their taco fix: Coyo Taco. The Wynwood eatery opened a second location at Axis Brickell (1111 SW 1st Avenue) back in May, bringing its beloved Mexican street food experience across town. Guests can expect many of the classics from the original outpost, plus several items specific to the Brickell branch.

When we’re in Brickell and in the mood for Mexican food, we usually think of Cantina La Veinte. However, that’s not a place we can afford to eat at every day … but Coyo Taco is. Having visited Coyo’s Wynwood location and the now-defunct Shore Club location, we know to expect quality food at a reasonable price point.

For us, Coyo Taco is just what the neighborhood needs: a reliable fast-casual Mexican restaurant that won’t break the bank and is open late. And now with even more delicious items on the menu, it’s no surprise that Coyo has quickly become a neighborhood favorite.

We’re in Love With the Coyo (at Shore Club)

If you ever pass by Coyo Taco in Wynwood, there’s almost always a line. Because of the restaurant’s popularity, it was only a matter of time before a new location popped up. For their second outpost, the team behind Coyo chose Miami Beach’s Shore Club to house their operation.

With so many taco spots already on South Beach, Coyo has their work cut out for them. But after checking out the place for ourselves and trying out menu items old and new, we think Coyo will do just fine amidst the competition due to its damn good food. Read more
