Ted shows off Miami at SOBEWFF Burger Bash

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – Chef Teodoro “Ted” Armas wore his face mask and gloves and brought his secret sauce.

There was a DJ, dancing, loads of hand sanitizer, and a variety of burgers – including the cheeseburger baby’s peanut butter and jelly burger. It was all part of the Burger Bash, the Friday night highlight of the South Beach Wine & Food Festival or SOBEWFF.

The Cuban-American chef’s first role models in the kitchen were his mother and grandmother. The list was later expanded to include George Motz, Anthony Bourdain, Alvin Cailan, Matty Matheson, and Guy Fieri.

After working in restaurants for years, he opened his own business in Brevard County and later returned to Miami-Dade County.

Despite the competition, the backyard burgers his family learned to love at birthday parties in Miami quickly became popular at Ted’s Burgers, a pop-up at J. Wakefield in Miami’s Wynwood.
