Lunch by I-Drive in Orlando?
I work out by the IDrive area in Orlando, and we're constantly looking for new lunch places to try out. Places under $15 or so mostly, so the high end places like Seasons 52 or Roys would be out.
Some of my favorites so far out in the area would have to be:
Trey Yeun - Dim Sum over by Wet and Wild
Nile - Ethiopian place by Buffalo Wild Wings
Q'Kenan Cafe - Venuzuelan place farther south on Idrive by the outlet malls
Aki - Authentic hole in the wall Japanese on Carrier Drive
Memories of India - Great indian food with a good lunch menu in the shopping center with Golds Gym on Turkey Lake
Rice Paper - Vietnamese in same place as Memories
Indian buffet in the plaza with Bill Wongs on Kirkman and IDrive is decent for the price
I'd love to find a really good sandwich and soup place that's not a chain down in that area, or decent Mexican. Anything really as long as they're open for lunch.
Press 101 in Dr Phillaps next to Mortons is fab for luch, great food, sandwiches and wines, also a new Thai restaurant called Tangs next to Albertsons
Five Guys Burgers and Fries is a small chain, slowly expanding from Virginia. They are in the Dr. Phillips area, not terribly far from Restaurant Row where Roy's is. They have very tasty burgers, but I still don't think they are as good as Fuddruckers, which is in the Festival Bay mall on I-Drive (and is awesome).
Not sure how fare you'll go, but you make O'kennan sound like a trek. Check out Jersy Mikes Subs on Conroy between the Turnpike overpass and Dr. Phillips Rd. You won't miss!!! Can say about their soups though.
TuTu Tango's on I-drive across from TonyRoma's it's a Tapas bar. Good stuff.
Down by O'Kennan, make a right at the walgreens into Vineland, turn right at the McD's and there is a new Mexican hole in the wall next to the Quiznos and the camera shop.
Post more if you find more.
How about a decent Cuban Sandwich in that area?
