SF Chowhound seeks Tampa/Orlando suggestions

Autumn | Dec 11, 2004 05:56 PM

I'm a regular on the SF board, and thought I'd ask around here for good food ideas. I'm visiting my father in law in Wesley Chapel (? I think that's right) not far from Tampa. I'll have a few spare hours around here on Monday, and it might be worth finding somewhere good to eat. Then I'm going to visit friends in Orlando for a few days. My friends know some great places already, but it would be fun to surprise them with something good that they don't know already.

So, I'd need something fairly inexpensive ($20/person or less? ish), any cuisine except Japanese, and in either Orlando or Tampa. I'm especially interested in places to eat local seafood and aligator.

Is there anywhere I simply can't leave Florida without visiting first?

Lastly... is Goblin Market in Mt. Dora worth the drive? As a lover of goblins, the name intrigues me.

Thanks so much!
