Councilman Elvis Maldonado Honors Two Time SoBeWFF Winner Chefs on the Run

Local eatery, Chefs on the Run, won the Miami New Times Sunday Best Bites on the Beach award for the second year in a row. Just like last year, they were the only restaurant from Homestead to participate in the South Beach Wine and Food Festival. This year, they honored their hometown again, defended their title and brought it back home. Councilman Elvis Maldonado was happy to honor the back-to-back champion.

“I am proud to announce that one of our hometown restaurants, Chefs on the Run, was recently bestowed the Miami New Times ‘Sunday Best Bites on the Beach’ award for the second year in a row!” said Councilman Maldonado during a special presentation at the March 2015 Council Meeting. “They are a pillar in our community and excellent representatives of Downtown Homestead, making constant efforts to honor our city.”

Chefs on the Run won the Best Bites title of 2015 thanks to a returning favorite, their Ahi Tuna Sliders with horseradish remoulade. To accompany the sliders, they served their now award-winning Baby Baguette Bahn Mis with cucumbers and red onions, and Do Chuas with soy lime ginger aioli. To receive the honors were Chef Jodrick Ujaque, his wife Jessica Ujaque, and co-owner (and mom) Nelida Estrada.

“Our purpose was not just to go as a family restaurant, but as a community altogether.” Chef Ujaque explained, “We wanted to show people that Homestead is more than just a pit stop, but also a destination. We are proud of our National Parks and our National Parks Trolley. People were impressed with our food, and now that we won again, we were able to leave a mark not only as Chefs on the Run, but as Homestead.”

Chefs on the Run opened its doors in September 2011, and has been serving top notch food at their establishment, located at 10 E Mowry Dr. in Downtown Homestead, ever since. For more info, check out their website at www.chefsontheruninhomestead.com
