Hi all, I am a recent transplant to Orlando from Akron, OH. I’ve been pleasantly surprised at the variety of options down here.( I confess I thought I was moving to Olive Garden Hell.) So far these have been some of the places I’ve enjoyed the most, what else do y’all recommend?
Se7en Bites: Brunch was delicious, but the real star was the Oatmeal Cream Pie and the Snickerdoodle Bar. Little Debbie’s have been ruined for me forever, but it was worth it.
Black Bean Deli: I don’t have anything to compare it to as there isn’t a dearth of Cuban food in Ohio, but I’ve been happy with everything I’ve had here. Where have fried plantains been my whole life? My SO is particularly fond of the Havana Pork, so we usually go on Friday or Saturday.
Swine and Sons: Quickly becoming one of my favorite lunch places. I consider one of the biggest benefits to moving down here to be easy access to modern southern cuisine, and the hot dog with pimento cheese and pork rinds is a match made in heaven. Also, last week I got some amazing tasso ham from the charcuterie counter, and it made for the best ham biscuits.
Little Saigon-This is the only Vietnamese restaurant I’ve been to because I feel kind of overwhelmed by the choices. I I would really be interested in opinions as to what the best options are.
