The Best Thing We Ate Last Night, SoBe Edition: Chicken at Pubbelly

Greetings from sunny Miami! Before we head out to all of the events that are taking place as part of the South Beach Wine and Food Festival, we are going to spend some time sitting by the pool. We were, that is, until we gorged on the comfort food at PubBelly, a pork-centric Asian gastropub. We may not be as buff after downing that kimchi fried rice, some duck and pumpkin sliders, a glistening slab (or three) of pork belly and tasty cuts of Serrano, but - worth it.

And especially worth it after that serving of fried chicken. True, Yardbird gets a lot of the attention as far as poultry is concerned, and there was no pig in this dish, but the lightly fried, juicy bits of thigh went so well with the mustard miso and kimchi, especially when wrapped in a crunchy leaf of bibb lettuce. Bathing suit grub? Not so much. But who wants to go swimming when you can dive into creative fare like this?
