About Portlander-Miamian

I first started this blog in 2012 as a bucket list of sorts for things to see, do, and eat in Miami. Eventually, I started documenting and seeking out all the places in Miami with gluten-free eats and that became a big focus of the blog. It also still included sights and events around Miami, plus highlighting my travels. I kept the blog pretty well updated until 2016 when I started a new job. From then it fell a bit by the wayside…

I am looking to get back into blogging but wanted to start with a bit of a clean slate. I am not as much of a foodie in how often I go out to eat. I certainly still enjoy it but I think my waistline and wallet appreciate I cook more and have other priorities (like travel!). I also, unfortunately, do not live in Miami anymore although home is never far from my heart and thoughts. I see this blog being more about travel and other interests I want to share about-  history, geography, Disney World, Harry Potter, health and well-being, and more. I will probably update this page as the new blog and content get more fleshed out.

I didn’t want to delete all the old content but wanted to keep it in one place for people who search for old posts, especially the gluten-free Miami posts (although they might be sorely out of date). Check out the Blog Past Life menu to find old posts.

  1. Welcome to Miami! And thanks for stopping by MiamifoodadVice.com! I’m actually a Seattle transplant by way of Raleigh, NC (Tasty Triangle was my blog there) I haven’t written since November but have lots of new places to review. Ciao!

  2. Read your reviews about the Pincho Factory in Westchester. I called to see if the toston burger was gluten-free. The girl who answered the phone didn’t know so she asked the chef. They said they would have to call the owner. Called the Coral Gables Pincho Factory and they said the toston burger is NOT gluten-free.

    1. Thanks for sharing that Rachel! I was told differently on my first visit. Will have to investigate. I also believe I saw it mentioned by one of the owners in an article, but that might have just been the author’s assumption. Will have to see if it’s something about the burger itself in the spices or something or if there is something unusual about their tostones (which should just be plantains). I wonder if it’s due to potential cross-contamination in a fryer. I will make a note at top when I’m near a computer until I can find out more.

  3. Hey, Portlandermiamian! We really enjoy your work from your October 2015 trip to German Village in Columbus, OH. I work for the non-profit that promotes historic preservation in the area and we’re redesigning our website. We would love to use your photos if you would be so kind to give us permission. We of course would give credit to Portlandermiamian. Please email me at mweiss@germanvillage.com. Thanks – German Village Society
