California Pizza Kitchen

Hello daily viewers, this is Blake Rubenstein, mostly known as your FOOD DUDE. I am writing live from California Pizza Kitchen in Miami, Florida. So, with that in mind, I searched the menu for something that would satisfy me. The most appealing main dish to order for me was the margarita pizza. I added some sausage to half of my pieces of pizza. It was NOICE! I had a GREAT meal. The pizza was fresh, and hot. It had the right amount of sauce to cheese ratio, and the cheese was exceptional. I really liked the crunchy crust and the tomato sauce was tasty. I also really liked the sausage. The sausage was spicy, but not too spicy, it was spicy to a good extent. The sausage went really well with the pizza. I loved the meal, and so did the Rubenstein family. I had a blast, and so will you! California Pizza Kitchen earned 8.45 golden stars out of 10 golden stars. Y'all will have a pleasant meal there, and you and your family will enjoy.

Hello folks, this is Blake Rubenstein, reporting live from Samurai in Miami, Florida. My journey began this morning, and took a couple hours to make it to Samurai. So, when I arrived at this Japanese wonder, I was enlightened. The pictures on the wall were cool, I was so thrilled! That's enough about the environment, later, I ordered the chicken and shrimp special, with their specialty fried rice on the side. Despite the price, the food was unbelievable. It was amazing! It was marvelous! It was perfection! I loved the fried rice so much, it had many mixtures to it, and they all were grilled in front of you so you could see the making of perfection in front of your eyes. The rice was full of flavor, and made my eyes water due to its amazingness. The chicken was great, it was grilled and slathered with a squeezed lemon and soy sauce, and it was beautiful. The shrimp was mighty fine, with a different lemon squeezed from above, and it stole my heart. I was shell-shocked, some might say I was in a different world. The most appropriate rating one may designate to Samurai is 10 GOLDEN stars. It was truly fantastic, it was a fantasy. I strongly suggest that when you are able to, you must travel to your nearest Samurai.

Sub Shack

Hello daily blog viewers, this is your FOOD DUDE, here to discuss the local restaurant known as Sub Shack. Unfortunately, I could not take a visit to this magical place, I had my mom hand-deliver it to me. So, I ordered a grilled steak sub on white bread, with steak and cheddar cheese. The steak was great, it was savory in my mouth, and was hot. The steak helped to support the cheese and melt it eventually. I really liked the white sub bread, it was so soft, and kept everything inside of it stable. The cheese was cheese, meaning it was pretty solid (no pun intended). The overall meal was splendid. I was thrilled, my grandma was thrilled, and even my father was ecstatic with the food's taste! The rating I designated to Sub Shack was 9 out of 10 golden stars. So, congrats to the Sub Shack organization, y'all should have a good night!

Hello folks, this is your food dude! So, with that in mind, I went to Miyako in South Miami to eat dinner with my family. I am not a big sushi fan, so I tried the grilled chicken with teriyaki sauce, and it came with a bowl of white rice. The chicken was grilled to perfection, fresh, and warm as soon as I received it. As I embraced my chicken slathered in teriyaki sauce, the rice was placed among me and my family. The grilled chicken was nice and not too crunchy. The teriyaki sauce was sweet and savory with the freshly made chicken. I was thrilled with the white rice, it wasn't too plain and had some flavoring. This food at Miyako in South Miami really impressed me, and I felt content when my family loved it as well as I did. To conclude, I feel that Miyako deserves a 9 out of 10 gold star rating.  The chicken was perfect, went along greatly with the steaming teriyaki sauce, and the rice was exceptional. I strongly advise the visit to Miyako in South Miami.

Pei Wei

Hello daily blog viewers of, today your food dude has a special post for you guys. I am celebrating my 3rd official restaurant review for tonight, and I wanted it to be extremely special. So, with that in mind, I traveled to the local Pei Wei. I ordered the honey-seared chicken with white rice on the side. I was pleased with what I ordered. The honey-seared sauce was very flavorful, and was sweet and made a great addition to my chicken. With the hot honey-seared sauce steaming with the chicken, my eyes' opened wide expecting a bite out of this delicious food. My nose was also urging to grab a bite of this exquisite cuisine. Not only did I enjoy the sauce with my chicken, but it also provided a good taste to the white rice that i ordered. To be honest, this Pan-Asian food really surprised me on how well it was prepared. Pei Wei deserved an 8.33333. I feel this is a fair rating due to the lack of taste in the white rice. Although I expected  little more from the rice, the overall meal there was awesome!

Hello daily viewers, this is your food dude. Today, I journeyed to the IHOP in Pinecrest, Miami feeling excited to eat a good meal to start my day. I was more than satisfied with the range of options given to the customers. I pleased myself to 5 buttermilk pancakes with chocolate chips and freshly made whip cream. I was eccentric when I received my order. The buttermilk pancakes, oh the buttermilk pancakes, so warm and tender, freshly baked. The layer of syrup was a perfect addition to my pancakes. Later, I added my hot chocolate chips and whipped cream to my pancakes, I was amazed on how well IHOP made my breakfast. My overall rating for IHOP was an 8. I feel IHOP really deserved an 8 due to its amazing food which led to the political stability in my mouth and stomach. The pancakes were freshly made, and so was the new amazing feeling in my stomach after having IHOP! It was a really great boost to begin my day, and I would not have survived without IHOP. Thank you IHOP for your great food and helping me out when I really needed it!

Hello daily viewers, this is your food dude. Today, I went to the Chipotle in Pinecrest, Miami feeling anxious for a good meal. There it was, glimmering in my eyes, the sign for the mighty fine establishment Chipotle. There were many options to choose from but after a long moment of deciding, I chose to get a bowl with steak. The steak there was cooked to perfection, with a hint of spiciness. I later requested the freshly graded cheese and warm black beans to be added to my bowl of cilantro mixed white rice. It was amazing, one would call it an eye-opening experience. It was as if I were a baby, opening my mouth to this new world of flavor. The cuisine had spicy food, and had chips with a bit of lime and salt. The food was outstanding there, but there is was one flaw with the food. The food at Chipotle is very spicy, and if you are not a fan of spicy food, then caution. Overall, on my scale, Chipotle was given an 8.2 out of 10 stars. The food was great, and I highly recommend Chipotle be included in places to go in Miami, Florida. That's your food news from your friendly food dude.
