Hungry Detective

Hosted by Chris Cognac

Miami

Hungry Detective Chris Cognac investigates Miami, hot on the trail of one of its signature dishes, the Cuban sandwich. During his investigation he spots a lobster boat docked near a local fish market, hops aboard and is taken to Garcia’s, a waterfront restaurant run by the family who owns the fish market. After helping to bring in the daily catch, Cognac samples two of their specialties, conch and lobster thermidor. Day two of Cognac’s investigation begins with Arnie and Richie’s, a locals-in-the-know East Coast Jewish deli. Here he samples an egg sandwich on challah bread and shallow fried potato pancakes, known as latkas. Cognac’s investigation also includes tapas at a Latin American soul food restaurant called Canela, and the ultimate off-the-beaten path Cuban sandwich at Las Islas Canarias, an authentic hidden gem in a strip mall.
