Read On To See Why This Restaurant Is Funk-in’ Awesome

Food & People

If music is the soundtrack of life, then soul food is the riff that gives the songs meaning. Oh yeah… it’s that kinda post… where things are about to get really groovy… really soulful… and mostly, … really Funky.

If you didn’t get the reference, then you haven’t experienced one of Boca’s favorite hangouts for live music. Located in the heart of the downtown action (aka anywhere within walking distance of Mizner Park or Royal Palm Plaza), it’s known as a hotspot for late night jammin’ – or depending on your age, “groovin” all the way up to “raging.”  Funky Biscuit is the place that has it all.

And just when you thought things couldn’t get more “rad” or “fetch” or “AF” – Funky Biscuit now offers lunch that features smoked BBQ meats and other items provided by Pigsty BBQ. If you haven’t read my salivating review of Pigsty, here is all the background that you need to know: CLICK HERE FOR BBQ NOMS.

While Pigsty offers a variety of Kansas style smoked BBQ items (thanks to Smoke Master Bryan), the Brisket Tacos are exclusive to Funky Biscuit, and so I just had to nose dive in to something new (I’ve dined at Pigsty so many times that I have literally – and not in a Kardashian way – I really mean literally – tried every item on their menu at least once). Served street style on a corn tortilla with onions, cilantro and lime, you’ll quickly realize that you don’t need to cross the border to have a fiesta in your mouth.

Did I mention that the handcut, twice fried fries are also sourced from Pigsty? I was lucky enough to celebrate National French Fry Day learning how to properly slice, prep, fry, and season these potato gemstones with Chef Bryan Tyrell, and I’m glad that Boca will now get a taste of the Holy Grail of Fries. Oh yeah.  ….  and there was a hot dog too. In all honesty, there’s no real way to eff up a hot dog. But there IS a way to make it extra, and this dish delivered that. I only ordered a hot dog bc I had tried all the other meats on the menu (again, refer to the article link from above), but if you have never tried any of Pigsty’s smoked meats, then make it a priority to order that. Of course this dawg was just as delicious as a decent hot dog should be, and they don’t skimp on the size, but unless you are super craving a giant frank, I urge you to see why the meats smoked by Chef Bryan and provided by Pigsty will have you coming back for more. For reference, check out all the foodgasm-worthy menu options:

For my readers that enjoy BBQ, smoked meats, and Southern comfort food, I have one question: What are you Funk-in waiting for?!?


***I received complimentary noms in exchange for this post, however, you cannot bribe me with food, so all opinions are my own.
