Recently I was given the opportunity to go on a food tour, courtesy of Miami Culinary Tours, through the South Beach area.
Out of all the stops on the tour, I think that Blocks Pizza Deli was the favorite for my husband and I. We both love to get organic and all-natural food whenever possible, so this type of restaurant is right up our alley. (I just wish it was literally right up our alley... then again, if it was closer to our house, we'd probably be broke!)
So what do they serve at a natural, whole food, pizza deli? Well, pizzas of course... along with calzones, salads, and the Blocks Pockets that we got to try. We were each given a pocket called Sundried Hippie, filled with some of my favorite things, like feta cheese, delicious kalamata olives and spinach. Sun dried tomatoes and basil pesto tops the pocket off and gives it a bit of zing. The most surprising thing about the first bite was the light perfection of the bread, and each bite was delicious. I mourned the loss of an olive that accidentally dropped to the floor. After a few bites I tried out their infused olive oils by splashing a bit onto my pocket. The oils they had to choose from were plain, garlic-infused, rosemary-infused, and jalapeno-infused. I tried all but the jalepeno, and the rosemary was my favorite.
Before we left Blocks, we grabbed a take-out menu for future reference and we thought it was cool that they have an option to buy an uncooked pizza and bake it at home. This is perfect for us since we live far away, but we'd still love to share their food with our family.
I'm so glad that I was able to taste this on the food tour. There are so many great restaurants in Miami, and even if I had a million dollars, it'd be impossible to try all the awesome food out there. It was a real treat to be able to go on the sampling tour with Miami Culinary Tours.
