The Daily City’s Orlando Food Truck Bazaar keeps growing and growing. This month’s gathering of gourmet food trucks was rumored to be the biggest one yet, and it did not disappoint. For every truck we had a chance to try, I probably added three more trucks to my “to-eat list.” Even the chilly weather–the coolest evening of the season so far–didn’t stop people from coming out and enjoying the feast on the go.
We headed downtown on a Sunday a few months ago to visit the Lake Eola farmer’s market, and we decided to stop by Prickly Pear for their Sunday Brunch. Prickly Pear is owned by the same group as local favorites Funky Monkey and Bananas Diner, so it’s been on our “to try” list for a while. They offer a different menu for Sunday Brunch, so be aware that if you visit for dinner you’ll see a different menu than what we sampled.
Orlando’s Magical Dining Month is a great opportunity to try new restaurants or old favorites with a very affordable prix fixe menu, all while raising money for Boys & Girls Club of Central Florida. The event was held in September, and we had a chance to try two restaurants this year. We sampled one new location, K Wine Bar in Orlando’s College Park neighborhood, and one old favorite, Funky Monkey Wine Company at Pointe Orlando in the International Drive area.
