I'm heading down to Orlando with husband and 5 year old. All three of us are foodies, and we love interesting and spicy foods. Normally at home we prefer to eat at small, locally owned restaurants, and avoid most international chains like plague-pits.
We're really hoping to enjoy some dishes that we wouldn't normally be able to enjoy in Canada.
From what I've been able to pick through on the 'net, I've come up with a short list of options, but the advice & opinion of Orlando foodies would be oh so helpful and might help us narrow things down.
(If it's a help, we'll be staying at the Caribe Royale, but will have a car).
Giordano's (we've never eaten Chicago deep-dish pizza before, what type of fillings are good?)
Padrino's Cuban Bistro
Shin Jung (might this be too far out of the way?)
And just to prove that we are not being completely anti-Disney (our daughter is 5, after all), we also plan to eat at:
Kona Cafe in the Polynesian
Wolfgang Puck Express
Earl of Sandwich
I would really appreciate feedback and opinions, and if anyone has a local favorite they would be willing to point out, I'd love to hear about it. Thanks and cheers!
