Trying out new restaurants and finding a new favorite is an understated joy of a vacation. This is true even when you don’t have much time to spend eating! Even a quick bite can become a moment of discovery if you go to the right places. Here are some great quick bites that you’ll only find around Orlando, Florida.
Nothing Fancy is exactly what it sounds like, but its food always hits the spot. Favorites like biscuits and gravy or breakfast sandwiches are available all day long – great if you wake up late! The staff at this Mom-and-Pop style diner go the extra mile to make sure you’re cared for, so if you want a restaurant with some personality, find Nothing Fancy on the west side of Highway 27 between Holly Hill Tank Road and Park Place Boulevard.
There are plenty of pizzerias nestled in strip malls along Highway 27. This is one that you should visit. Dora’s Pizza is a simple pizza parlor offering pizza by the slice or whole pies, plus some extra items on the menu like pasta carbonara and Greek salad. Don’t be put off by the unassuming appearance – the flavor here is the real deal! The service is excellent, as well.
The Proper Pie Company
You can come here expecting delightful desserts, but you’ll find much more! This is a British restaurant featuring personal potpies, as well as some of the best-rated fish & chips in the area. Whether bangers, custard pies, or steak-and-mushroom pies, this place nails tender, flaky crusts. You’ll find these pies on Highway 27 by getting off at Ridge Center Drive.
Up Highway 27, near Sand Mine Road, you’ll find Bamboo Wok, a take-out centered place for Chinese. It’s the NYC-style Chinese take-out that Americans love. The service is fast, and the food is hot and fresh when you receive it. If there’s a long line, don’t be deterred – you might be amazed how quickly they can get people in and out! The portions are big, too. It’s open until 11 p.m. as well, so keep it in mind for late-night cravings.
