NY hound on business in Orlando--need suggestions
I'll be in Orlando for business and have two free dinners (where I won't be doing business). Where should I eat? Any price range is fine, but my personal preference for this trip skews closer to hole-in-the-wall finds than white-tablecloth tasting menus. I eat everything although I'm looking for good seafood in particular. Or Cuban. I'll be near the Convention Center but am willing to travel. Thanks in advance.
4 Rivers Smoke house - The original is in Winter Park but they now have a Winter Garden Location that is closer to you.
Sloppy Taco Palace - Great tacos/ dive bar serving up great beers
Lee and Ricks - Seafood Dive Bar specializing in Gulf Oysters - this is really a dive so if you are a tincy wincy bit of a germaphobe this may not be for you.
Fortuna Bakery - off of John Young, the menu is all in spanish but they are very helpful. Authentic latin food and baked goods.
Orlando Snack Cafe - Down a bit further on John Young and town center the non descript name doesn't tell you that it's really an awesome Venezuelan cafe, great empandas, plantains, and lunch specials.
Red Bamboo Thai - on I-drive - hidden in a strip mall it's pretty delicious.
Cafe Tu Tu Tango is a lot of fun - Tapas
Pho 88 for some good pho or a banh mi - although may be a bit of a drive for you
