Bourdain at the Lincoln Theatre

This is directed towards any of the other south florida chowhounds who were at Anthony Bourdain's book reading tonight at the Lincoln Theatre (or anyone else who might be able to help).

At the very beginning of the Q&A someone asked him where he has had his best meal in Miami. He fumbled for a couple of seconds and then said he had recently had a great meal at a spot in north miami. After announcing the name the crowd went into a mini-frenzy and many people stood up and starting yelling corrections and/or cheering. Tony corrected himself and even though I was listening vigilantly, I was sitting very far up on the balcony and could not hear exactly what he said. It sounded something like "hero yakoson" and that is what I wrote down in desperation. Unfortunately, after trying innumerable spellings and going through over 100 pages of miami restaurants on yelp I have been unable to find anything that even comes close to what I heard. If anyone who was there knows what he said and can offer me some insight, or if this name rings a bell for anyone, please let me know because I would love to try this mysterious place out.

  1. Try Hiro's Yakko-San, in North Miami. It's been great for many years for" Japanese soul food."

      Yeah that would be it, and may I add one of my favorite places in the florida to eat Yakko-San I would best describe to my friends as a Japanese Tapas place.I could eat there every day.

    2. Here are more of his faves, as excerpted from tonight's interview with New Times:

      New Times: Like everyone else, Miamians like to hear about themselves. Do you have any local favorites, food spots or otherwise?

      Anthony Bourdain: Anything to do with Michelle Bernstein, I love. And there's the taco place across from Club Deuce. Love it.

        Any idea what the taco place is? Only thing I know thats right around there is La Sandwicherie, and that's definitely not a taco place.

          Right next door to Sandwicherie.

          Incidentally, I was driving down Calle Ocho a week or two back and saw a little sandwich spot next to the Shell station. One of the guys who used to make sandwiches at LeSandwicherie was behind the counter. The menu was practically identical also.

            It used to be called San Loco and is now called T-Mex.

            I would go occasionally when it was called San Loco. It is nothing exceptional, and I am convinced Bourdain only recommends it due to its proximity to Club Deuce. I'd be willing to bet he's never been there sober.
