1ST EVER SOUTH FLORIDA BURGER WEEK(END)
– The Burger Week Goes to South Florida May 9 & 10, 2014 –
The Burger Week is a 7-day celebration of trendsetting chefs and unique burgers with a series of daily events.
One of my favorite things to do is travel and when I do it, I like to eat Burgers where ever I am. It’s a great way to connect with other Burger fanatics, try regional specialities and to turn even your business travels into a mini-Eatcation. That last one is part of the motivation in taking The Burger Week down to South Florida, which is way outside of it’s origins in New York. But, one event, the Burger Beast Burger Brawl that is, does not make a Burger “week.” However, I figured I could kick off the idea by adding another event and calling it the The First Ever South Flordia Burger Week(end.)
Upon obtaining the Burger Beast’s blessing (which went down kind of like this), I then asked if he could suggest the perfect restaurant to partner with and bring the Burger Week’s signature off-menu Burger Brunch to South Florida. Without any hesitation he suggested the Pincho Factory. They are known for really crazy specials and unique Burger builds based on different regional and ethnic Foods and I’ve been DYING to eat there. After only one very excited conversation with owner Nedal Ahmed, I knew we were in the right hands.

The Pincho Factory has made their name of serving unique and quality Foods, especially around their Burger menu. Ever since The Burger Beast told me about them, I’ve wanted to eat there. It was cemented once I saw the Burger Beast take George Motz there on the Miami episode of “Burger Land.” Thanks to an introduction to by Burger Beast to owner Nedal, it’s now happening.
On Saturday, May 10th, The Pincho Factory will turn over there Coral Gables location to the Burger curious of South Florida for an off-menu Burger Brunch. You’ll be treated to 4 of their speciality items that are constantly being requested; a Chuck Brisket Croquetessa, 2 different Burgers and Toston Fries. It will also come with a beer tasting, from Lagunitas. Don’t wait to get your tickets, there is only one seating and only a limited amount of Burger fanatics will get to join myself and The Burger Beast for this awesome one-time meal.
From my first conversation with Nedal, I thought this event was going to be great. When he sent me the menu, I knew it was going to be awesome. I started counting the minutes until it happened. You would think that after 9 days of eating 44 different Burgers, I would have no palette or stomach to eat more but that was not the case. I could not wait for this one.

Thank you to fine Burger fanatics of South Florida for joining us. I saw a lot of smiles and happy faces. I also heard a lot of “Wow’s” and “Oh My God’s” as you were eating the Food. I agree with you, it was awesome, ESPECIALLY the Croquetessa. A big specific thank you to Shop Coral Gables for the support and the awesome #poptpof (pictures of people taking pictures of food) photo. Thank you Nedal and the entire Pincho Factory staff. THAT WAS AWESOME. Trying to fit in a weird event with items you don’t normally serve while still trying to run regular business is something most restaurants could never do. I guess they have a lot to learn from you guys. Everything ran smooth, seamless and without any issues or complaints. The Food was fantastic, the service was impeccable and the event was super fun. Let’s start planning 2015 now! Thank you to Burger Beast & Señora Beast, without you, this would not have happened. Thank you also for adding several more dishes to our meal just to make sure we got a full tasting of what the Pincho Factory can do with Food. The Dogs were great! To Doolius, a sincere pleasure to dine with you again. Thanks for joining us and of course posting drool worth photos! Thank you of course to Burger Maker and Chip Crenshaw for helping The Burger Week to now happen in a 2nd city!
