slow cooked pinto beans cooked with a bit of salty pork / ham in Orlando
does anyone know where one may get such a dish in the Orlando area?
Well,, I know of two places that serve this dish but it's not a regular menu item that you can buy on demand. Most southern folk refer to the dish as pinto bean soup. OB's 1750 north in deland serves this a a soup of the day type of thing. Call them and they will tell you when they are making it! www.obslounge.com . There is also a place here on mount dora that serves it for lunch. Bates market at the corner of 7th and donnelly serves this dish as a seasonal soup. Mrs. Bates prepares soup durring the cold months of Dec,Jan,feb and march. Pinto bean and ham is served there atleast once a week durring those months. You might try some of the home cookin places around.
