Swine Southern Table & Bar: Hello, Old Friend by Miami Food Pug

If you can’t tell, Swine is all about the almighty hog. There are other proteins available, but the major one across the board is pork. And as you’d expect, you’re going to want to leave your diet at the door. Giant portions abound, and we speak from firsthand experience when we say you’ll probably have leftovers for days. That’s exactly what happened to us as we ordered massive bites like the Black Angus Burnt Ends and Smokehouse Chopped Salad, which were so big that we couldn’t finish them.

When people talk about Swine, the former item always pops up in conversation. We were reminded why on our recent visit: The burnt ends are juicy, tender and large, and the tater tots that accompany them taste great mixed with the sauce and blue cheese fondue. It was our hope to balance this dish with the chopped salad — gotta be a little healthy, right? — but it arrived in a bowl bigger than both our heads with loads of burnt ends and pork belly. Now we know why it costs $22 (and is worth every penny).

45 Top Barbecue Spots from Coast to Coast

If you’ve ever been to the South Beach Wine & Food Festival, you might have heard of Swine but not had the chance to taste its grub — that’s how quickly it sells out. All the more reason to visit the restaurant’s home base in Coral Gables and get your full share of inventive spins on Southern cuisine. Swine, which bills itself as “the house of worship to the porcine pursuits,” offers dishes that employ just about every part of the pig (including the head, in the Charleston Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka sauce). Pork of every persuasion permeates the menu; even the shrimp and grits arrive in a smoked bacon broth. There are also hearty Southern-style snacks like deviled eggs with redneck caviar, fried green tomatoes with smoked onion ranch dressing, and pimento cheese spread with bacon marmalade. And if you really want to embrace what this place is all about, swing by on Saturdays and Sundays for a “foot-stompin’, soul-healin’” brunch and tell them we sent you.
