Eating out is fantastic but unless your are ingesting poison from the fast food industry, it can be prohibitively expensive. While Miami Spice succeeds in making our most luxurious restaurants "affordable" for a couple months, it does nothing to address the limited access Miamians have to quality food at reasonable prices.

Soyka serves a wide array of American comfort food and has always maintained a solid reputation for delivering good food at truly sensible prices. They have gone even a step further in the value chain with an Italian menu served only on Mondays. Patrons can dine on large plates of their Italian favorites for only $10. They can choose from various types of pasta and pizzas as well as meat lasagna and both chicken and eggplant parmesan.

We're looking forward to Grovetoberfest.
Just about had it with summer? Between killer mosquitoes and alternating burning sun and thunderstorms, we're looking forward to the relative cool of autumn. That -- and beer.

October is traditionally the time for beer and, while Germany's Oktoberfest is world famous, Miami has its own unique celebration of brew. We're talking about Grovetoberfest.

The one-day cavalcade of beer returns to Coconut Grove's Peacock Park on Saturday, Oct. 18, and this year promises to be bigger than ever. Translation: more beer.

ABC Restaurant Supplies: Outfit Your Kitchen Like a Chef

It's a culinary scavenger hunt.
Home cooks know all too well the woes of cheap kitchen equipment. There's the Dutch oven whose enamel begins chipping after only a few forays into a 300-degree oven; the sautée pan with the hot spot that burns part of your omelet and leaves the other half just barely cooked.

This isn't to say every kitchen should be fitted out with the over-priced, perfectly marketed doodads and useless tools that line the shelves at Williams-Sonoma or Bed Bath and Beyond. The rubber-handled mango pitter that both stores push like cheap freebase to itchy junkies is the most useless thing since vibrating weight loss belts.

What you want is quality stuff that can stand years of abuse. Look to the kitchen supply stores along North Miami Avenue just west of the Adrienne Arsht Center. Sure, they're a collection of musty warehouses without pretty displays or 20 percent off coupons. What they all do have, however, is a lineup of pots, pans, bowls and every other kind of kitchen tool imaginable all designed for the harshest environment: the professional commercial kitchen.

National Ice Cream Month (July, if you were wondering) can leave vegans feeling a little left out. Sure, we can snag a box of Tofutti or a pint of Rice Dream at the supermarket, but getting anyone to serve us a scoop or mix us up a shake? Dream on.

Luckily, Whole Foods Aventura has our backs. This Sunday, they'll serve vegan milkshakes for $5 from 1 to 3 p.m., in honor of the holiday. But even if you can't make it into the store, you can whip up your own at home with this recipe. Enjoy!
