Hi Chowhounds! I'm visiting Orlando for a few days in February, will also be in Tampa for a day, and am looking for some recommendations. What are the specialities in Florida that are hard to find in San Francisco? Cuban and Carribean come to mind, any suggestions? Southern and Creole food are also somewhat rare here. I'm heading to Mexico after Florida, so I'll refrain from eating Mexican food while in Florida. What is Florida seafood like and what kinds of dishes should I try?
Also, are there any foodie places to visit? A visit to a family-run citrus farm might be fun, if something like that is possible.
Thank you for your help!
