The Ravenous Pig
As one of the first gastropubs in Orlando, The Ravenous Pig has won over locals and visitors alike with its fresh fare that emphasizes locally-sourced ingredients. A rotating seasonal menu of food, craft beer, and cocktails ensures that no experience at The Ravenous Pig is ever really the same. Try delightful concoctions like pot-au-feu and tagliatelle with braised rabbit. They even have beer brewed by their sister restaurant.
You encounter this Orlando institution in College Park, where patrons continue to be wowed by an intensely flavorful and varied menu. Highlighting locally-grown ingredients, K Restaurant features everything from hearty burgers and mac n’ cheese to duck confit. Another bonus that comes with eating here is knowing that you’re contributing to a good cause. The chef and owner of K Restaurant, Kevin Fonzo, single-handedly contribute to school lunch programs and classes on cooking and gardening for children in the local area.
Pig Floyd’s Urban Barbakoa
Fusing together the flavors of Latin, Caribbean, and Asian cuisine with traditional Southern barbeque, Pig Floyd’s Urban Barbakoa is the ultimate barbeque destination. If you have a palate for barbeque but a craving for exotic tastes, you can’t go wrong with Pig Floyd’s menu, such as barbeque banh mi and flavor profiles that are smoky yet sweet. Citrus, curry, and soy abound in marinades over pork belly, pulled pork, and brisket.
Shish.Co Mezze & Grill
The flavors of the Mediterranean come through in the simple, impactful menu of this street-side food stand. Drink Turkish coffee while enjoying kofte with a refreshing yet creamy yogurt sauce and smoky eggplant, or sampling one of their famous pita-lined doner bowls.
