re: Big Bad Voodoo Lou
I have yet to make it to Tako Cheena. - It's on my list.
I love Pho 88 and it's a great place to take people that have never had pho or a banh mi. The banh mi selection is rather inexpensive but decent and you can share it.
4 Rivers - wow I just went by the new larger Winter Park Location. I was astounded by how large it is compared to their original location.
Here's my favorite lunch in Orlando: Bánh Mì Nha Trang Subs, 1216 East Colonial Drive. Cash only ($3.50/ea) - buy five sandwiches and get #6 free. The proprietors are an uber-cute couple from Vietnam and they are so welcoming and helpful. And the husband (who takes the orders) always asks if you are eating the sandwich today "or tomorrow." If you say tomorrow, they cheerfully package the sandwich fillings separate from the bread - and equally cheerfully explain how to assemble the sandwich contents to achieve the perfect sandwich at home. These folks know their sandwiches and they are passionate about the food that they sell. Honestly, they should charge 10x the price for their sandwiches - and it would still be a bargain IMHO.
