Where should I eat while attending IAAPA Expo 2021?
With a name that conjures up quite an interesting image and has even better food to enjoy, The Ravenous Pig is a must-eat destination in Orlando. Located at 565 W Fairbanks Ave, Winter Park, FL 32789, this restaurant boasts a braised pork belly and a short rib brisket burger that locals and tourists alike love, not to mention a rotating selection of phenomenal craft beers. Labeled as one of Orlando’s premier “gastropubs” you won’t want to miss the Ravenous Pig.
If you’re a fan of steaks, you won’t want to miss Waldorf Astoria’s Bull and Bear, located at 14200 Bonnet Creek Resort Lane, Orlando, FL 32821. Known for their selection of savory, perfectly-aged beef, dishes like their 38-ounce bone-in 28-day dry-aged Tomahawk Ribeye, Bull and Bear offers many eye-opening, mouth-watering, and jaw-dropping cuts to make your Orlando trip one to remember. The Veal Oscar, B&B Fried Chicken, and Escargot & Gnocchi are among the many signature dishes this establishment cooks up as well.
Conventionally known as the staple food of broke college students, ramen is a delicious dish anybody would be lucky to devour at Domu, located at 3201 Corrine Dr, Orlando, FL 32803. In particular, their renowned curry ramen can be a shareable delight for a family of four or a hoardable bowl of goodness just for yourself. Though this establishment does not offer take-out or reservations, you can show up and chow down on their pan-Asian cuisine that will have you asking for seconds.
Finally, for a combo bar & grill eating experience, check out Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill located at 1514 E Buena Vista Dr, Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830. Known for their world-class California cuisine, dishes such as their Chicken Wienerschnitzel and their Double Cut Pork Chop are a welcome taste of reprieve after a long (but successful!) tradeshow appearance.
