From the Miami Food Pug—Taste History Culinary Tours: An Eye-Opening Experience

Lake Worth Commissioner Andy Amoroso greets visitors in downtown Lake Worth (his business is located at 600 Lake Ave across the street from Starbuck's)
Lake Worth's Taste History Culinary Tour is featured in the Miami Food Pug and you can read all about that using this link. For information about Taste History and to contact their Executive Director/Chief Curator, Lori J. Durante, that is at the end of this blog post.

Here are excerpts from the Miami Food Pug:

     "Taste History doesn’t just focus on food; you also get a taste of the area’s culture and past — the art league being a major part of that; it’s been around since the 1920s and is still going strong.
Nearby this stop was The Taco Lady. another Lake Worth staple.
     Having set up shop about 14 years ago, the taco lady  — yes, she’s also an actual person — is cranking out legit tacos and other authentic Mexican fare like she runs the place (she does). Not only is the food delicious, but it’s also reasonably priced for the portions. It’s a small shop, so you may have to get your food to go, but it’s soooo worth it."

     "The final attractions on the Lake Worth part of the tour ended on a high note. With chocolate and BBQ, how could it not? We gained 10 pounds just walking into Hoffman’s Chocolates and looking at their extensive selection of items from giant chocolate bars to chocolate-covered pretzels.
     Blue Front Grill and its pulled chicken, baby back ribs and Mac ‘n cheese helped counter the sweetness from the previous stop. Make sure you visit the backyard. It doesn’t look like it from the outside, but holy crap it’s hugeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. And really nice, too."
