Krusty Burger Now Open in Universal Studios Orlando

A Hamburger Today Robyn Lee 18 comments

Two weeks ago, Universal Studios Orlando announced the opening of a new Simpsons-themed area later this summer. While much of the area is still under construction, Fast Food Boulevard—home to Springfield favorites like Krusty Burger, Moe's Tavern, the Frying Dutchman, and more—opened last Saturday. Inside the Magic has loads of photos and videos from opening day. More

Bags O' Bánh Mì at Tien Hung Oriental Foods in Orlando

J. Kenji López-Alt 29 comments

Bánh mì with its crisp, moist vegetable filling and delicate-crusted bread can't sit for too long before it starts to lose quality. But the folks behind the sandwich counter at the Tien Hung Oriental Foods market in Orlando's ViMi district (one of the finest Vietnamese food scenes in the country) seem to know this and have come up with an ingenious workaround: rather than selling the 100% assembled sandwiches, they'll give 'em to you as DIY kit.

Orlando, FL: Cheesy Pies and Hacked Ovens at Pharmacy

Slice J. Kenji López-Alt 3 comments

Folks in Orlando seem smitten by The Table, Tyler Brassil and Loren Falsone's family-style, fixed-menu concept that is part restaurant, part supper-club. It's a nice space, and the food I tried there was pretty darn good. But the real secret is next door at Pharmacy, their cocktail bar. More

Cured Meats Rule at Cask and Larder in Winter Park, Florida

J. Kenji López-Alt 9 comments

The DIY charcuterie movement has finally reached country-wide levels of pervasiveness, which is a good and a bad thing. In the wrong hands, house-made charcuterie is a step down from store-bought options (the number of times I've had improperly emulsified sausages or poorly cured hams far exceeds the number of excellent ones I've had), and potential dangerous. In the right hands, the interplay of meat, salt, and time can be a truly revelatory eating experience. Chef de Cuisine Dennis Bernard of Cask and Larder in Winter Park, Florida, has the right hands, along with the brains and humility to know when to use them. More

Prato: Serious Neapolitan Pizza In Winter Park, FL

Slice J. Kenji López-Alt 11 comments

I walked into Prato, a modern Italian trattoria in Winter Park Florida, sure that I could at least get a decent beer. But my hopes for great pizza took a big plunge when our waitress proudly proclaimed "we bake our pizzas all the way at 500 degrees in a brick oven imported from Tuscany." "500°," "brick oven," and "Tuscany" are not three words that you generally want to hear when ordering pizza. Luckily, I was proven wrong. More

A Sandwich a Day: Fu Man Chu at Pom Pom's Teahouse & Sandwicheria in Orlando

A Sandwich a Day Jay Friedman 5 comments

The flavor combinations of the Fu Man Chu attracted me, as the sandwich includes the slight spiciness of Asian pulled pork, the bitterness and peppery notes of watercress, the tanginess of goat cheese, and the sweetness of red onions. Add to this ginger cranberry chutney, which incorporates all of those flavor profiles plus fruitiness, and the fillings stand up well to the hardiness of the suggested pumpernickel bread More

Burger Pet Peeves, or How I Spent My Theme Park Vacation in Orlando

A Hamburger Today Robyn Lee 16 comments

No one goes to theme parks expecting to eat great food. So why did I eat three burgers during a six-day theme park-centric vacation in Orlando with my mom and brother earlier this month? Because I thought it may give me something to blog about. And it did. Sort of. The theme of this post: Do not eat burgers in theme parks. More

Erin Zimmer 8 comments

[Image: butter-beer.com] Ever wondered what butterbeer and pumpkin juice would taste like? Well, next spring you can find out at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park slated to open at the Universal Orlando resort. According to Nation's Restaurant News, the Harry Potter wonderland will have two pubs, the Hog’s Head and Three Broomsticks, which will feature a menu of "traditional British fare and drinks."
