BUNS & BUNS
You can go around the world in 80 days…or you can go around the world in an hour and eat at Buns & Buns in South Miami. Opened in spring 2014, Buns & Buns takes different breads from around the world like cheese naan, brioche and focaccia and then pairs them with the cuisine of that country. The global dining experience include dishes like the Knife and Fork burger, salmon teriyaki and pork belly; all prepared in an open kitchen. The restaurant itself even has a world traveler ambience, chocked with tokens from around the world, brick accents, traveling crates and for humor, a “drunken chef game” on the wall.

Instagram-worthy moment: All dishes are served on Raku-style pottery plates. The receipt served in a wooden cigar box, is the finishing touch.
Some say nothing can compare to mom’s home cooking, but they’ve also probably never been to Whisk. Craftily nestled in the backstreets of South Miami, Whisk makes itself hard to miss with the line that winds out the door of this caterer-turned-souther comfort restaurant. If luck is on your side that day, opt for a seat near the back, where an open enclave gives guests an insider’s look into the kitchen. There, Executive Chef Brendan Connor and his team sear their fried green tomatoes and concoct the Whisk Gourmet Southern Pulled Pork Burritos.
7381 SW 56 Ave, Miami, FL, 33143, (786) 268-8350; whiskgourmet.com
Instagram-worthy moment: There’s no better time to go to Whisk that at night. Its usual daytime warmth transforms into dreamy comfort with its intimate atmosphere and candlelight–cheesy indie movie-esque moments welcome.
