Hg2 : The Hedonist


With numerous nods from the James Beard Foundation over the past few years, it’s fair to say that the food at Pubbelly, found in trendy Miami Beach, is as good as the restaurant is popular. Chef José Mendín’s small dishes are packed with flavour and marry ingredients that will surprise even the most jaded diner. Shrimp bolognese, anyone?

A gastro-pub with an Asian twist, Pubbelly has sleek, yet quirky interiors–all drop lighting, peace symbols and communal benches–making it a fun spot to while away the hours. The menus here change daily, but fans of pork belly are usually in for a treat. This reliable Pubbelly staple bulges from the menu in creative guises; the pork belly dumplings with onion marmalade, su-shoyu, and schichi in particular are a knock-out.

Any day of the week, the delicious dishes are best washed down with a few offerings from the extensive drinks list (think: craft beers, creative cocktails, wine, and plenty of sake). But on Sundays, the bottomless mimosas are the way to go; they’re a great accompaniment to the tantalising brunch menu, which features everything from the oysters du jour and softshell crab benedicts with heirloom tomato, biscuits, and shiso hollandaise, to maple bacon glazed doughnuts.
