Sex, Drugs, and Waiting Tables on South Beach UPDATED
|Working on the Latin Burger truck.|
So for the past few months, I went behind the scenes, working undercover at three local restaurants and a food truck, shadowing and interviewing servers. Here's a taste of what I learned:
"When I began work on the food truck called Latin Burger and Taco this fall, I quickly learned it was far smaller than it appeared from the outside -- and much hotter. It didn't help that it was about 89 degrees outside. The griddle and fryer made the truck feel like a small metal box heated to about 350 degrees."
For the rest of the story, which details my work at high-end South Beach restaurants as well as GreenStreet in Coconut Grove, read my first-ever feature story, "Working at Miami Restaurants and Food Trucks: The Inside Scoop."
Update: Check out my interview with WLRN on the story.
