It’s almost Friday, which is one reason to be happy. Another reason is the South Beach spot where grabbing a drink and a bite won’t drain your bank account. That’s why it’s tonight’s Cheap Thrills.
Cheers, South Florida! Welcome to Talde Miami Beach at the Confidante Hotel.
Dale Talde, chef: “Food is very fun. It’s meant to share. It’s a very jovial space. Great takes on Asian classics with an American point of view.”
Talde is the brainchild of Chef Dale Talde.
If Dale looks familiar, then bravo, you’re a reality cooking show fan.
Dale Talde: “‘Top Chef,’ I did three seasons of that. You might recognize me from that.”
The restaurant got its start up north and has a very New York vibe.
Dale Talde: “We wanted to bring a little bit of Brooklyn, a little up north, down to South Beach.”
And their new happy hour will have you feeling very happy.
Dale Talde: “Here at Talde Miami Beach, our happy hour is from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., and it’s seven days a week.”
Maybe they should call it — half off hour.
Dale Talde: “For happy hour, our drink program, everything is half off, so if it’s wine, specialty cocktail, or beer, it’s half off.”
And since you’re saving a bit of green…
Dale Talde: “I love the Green Lightning. It’s green tea, vodka, crushed ice. Super refreshing.”
Talde’s food will fill you up and not empty your wallet.
Dale Talde: “The Kung Pow Wings are $1 apiece. Going back to old school when you are in college.”
From the samosas to the Bao Buns, the happy hour menu has some of Talde’s most popular dishes.
Dale Talde: “For our happy hour, pricing our pretzel pork and chive dumplings, it’s 2 for $3.”
Customer: “It’s a great happy hour. It’s always fun to come to the restaurant. It’s a great crowd.”
Dale Talde: “We take what we do seriously, but we don’t take ourselves seriously.”
