Imagine walking into an event with the smell of Cuban croquetas perfuming the air. Multiple tables presenting their best savory filled and fried tubular goodness, along with more croqueta inspired dishes. What’s great is that you can taste all of these croquetas and eat as much as you can, until they are all gone. This is Croquetapalooza, a Croqueta celebration going down on Sunday, October 12, 2014 at Magic City Casino in Miami, FL. This indoor event will take place at Magic City Casino’s Stage 305 from 1-4pm with not only croquetas to taste, but a variety of soft drinks, Cuban Batidos, and more. The Croquetapalooza is produced by BurgerBeast.com, who throws some of the best food events in South Florida that I have attended. This event is not to be missed!

In addition to tasting the all of the croquetas from 10+ Miami restaurants, a Croqueta Eating Contest will be going on for those who want to flex their croqueta eating skills! This will be refereed by South Florida blogger, Fatgirl Hedonist.
To sweeten up Croquetapalooza, a Flan competition will also be part of the event. The Flantastic! Competition will feature 10 restaurants competing to find out who has the “Best Flan in Miami” and will be judged by a panel of esteemed judges.
