Comments Off on NEWS: Hemingway’s expanding north to Atlanta’s Krog Street Market
Atlanta will soon get a taste of Tampa with Hemingway’s expanding north to A-Town’s Krog Street Market in spring of 2020. Hemingway’s is currently located inside the Armature Works food hall in Tampa Heights and serves Cuban dishes with a focus on Tampeño food such as Cuban Sandwiches (WITH salami).
Chef Felicia “Phe” Lacalle is a previous winner of the International Cuban Sandwich Festival. She worked in the past as an Executive Sous and Regional Pastry Chef at Roy’s and Executive Chef at Samba Room.
Make sure you try the chicharrones, they are not to be missed.

Comments Off on RUMOR: Nine Spices Hot Pot expanding to Tampa’s Uptown near USF
A new hot pot place has appeared on Fowler Avenue near USF and Tampa’s Uptown called HotPot BBQ.
There isn’t much online for it yet, but the license for the location points to Nine Spices Hot Pot in St. Petersburg as the owners of the location and this spot is in the old Hong Kong House spot in front of M.D. Oriental Market at 1120 East Fowler Avenue Tampa, Florida 33612.
The current selection for hot pot in Tampa is very limited so fingers crossed that this is real. The owners have not responded yet to requests for comment.
