Orlando, 1st Time in 2 Years - Anything to Add to Itinerary?

We're heading back to Orlando for the first time in quite a while, and we're looking to see if there's anything new and houndish that we ought to be checking out. You can see what I've reviewed in the past to get a sense of what we tend to look for: family-friendly, unique restaurants and don't necessarily have to be inexpensive, but by all means if they are inexpensive, please do recommend. At this point here's what we're looking at:

- Tropifongo
- Asia Bagus (still open, I take it?)
- La Frontera

We love Korean and Vietnamese. Real Cuban. Kosher Deli. Barbecue. Soul Food. A good burger joint, etc. Pernil, lomo asado. Anywhere that has roast pig?

Staying down near Disney for the most part, but can venture just about anywhere for a good meal.

  1. Asia bagus is closed, sorry Andrew :(

    this is a message i found on another site, from asia bagus?
    "All of us here at Asia Bagus Restaurant thank you sincerely for standing by us loyally and unforgettable memories. We found some great friends/ customers who gave us loyal support along the way in the past three years and the happiest experience
    Sorry for any inconvenience, we'll see you again in different venue. As we say in Indonesian "terima kasih banyak" -Thank you very much" for the memories"

        Thanks, Qwertop - found out the hard way about Asia Bagus. Drove down there last night, discovered it was closed. Wound up grabbing a so-so dinner at Kobe. Standard teppanyaki fare.

        We'll check out Anh Hong and Vietnamtown!

    2. The best Korean food I've had outside of Korea is at Shin Jung on East Colonial. Well worth the drive. A little amazingly authentic hole in the wall. Also they roast a full pig every other saturday (I think, call to verify) at The Ravenous Pig on Orange ave. Check out for some great reviews and recommendations on orlando/tampa food!
