Blue Sky Food By The Pound


5751 Bird Rd, Miami
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Food by the pound is such a beautiful concept, and Blue Sky nails it. This Cuban restaurant is basically one long steam counter with over 30 delicious choices. It’s a great option if you’ve been tasked with finding food for your cousin’s baby shower. But if you don’t like loud family parties (we understand), the $12.95 dinner gets you a big styrofoam box full of juicy vaca frita strips, rice, thick black beans, and maduros—which you can eat alone even though you’ll never be able to finish it in one sitting. These dinners aren’t charged by the pound, but we weighed it anyway, and it clocked in at 1.75 lbs. In case you were curious.
