My trip to the YVR started off with a stop at one of my old Burnaby favorites: Fish on Rice. I know, I know, this place gets some mixed review. I will be the first to tell you that some nights the fish is not that great, but when they are on, they put out some of the best sushi I have ever eaten. The one constantly good thing that brings me back over an over again is the beef tataki, oh, and did I mention it is all you can eat!
Now, this may not be something most Americans would blog about, but being from Victoria, I have never had the opportunity to dine at a Red Lobster. After a long day of traveling, we decided to walk across the street from our hotel and grab a bite. I had the crab pot as it was their crab extravaganza (or something or other). The soft shell crab was decent; however, the best part of the whole dinner was the cheddar cheese biscuits! I think, their commercials make it look better than it actually is (kudos to the media person, I would demand a raise).
This place serves up some delicious southern food and some rockin' blues bands to accompany it. Both the cat fish and the chicken fried chicken were delicious. Oh, and did I mention the tamales were delicious as well. Next time your in Orlando check it out, you won't be dissapointed (unless you use the bathrooms :( )
Number 4: Buca di Beppo - Florida Mall, Orlando Fl.
Buca serves up some delicious Italian food just like you were a home. It is family style dining and everything they serve up is in HUGE portions. I am sure it isn't the best Italian food ever, but it is probably the best bang for you buck. Buca is one of the places I have to eat at if I am in the U.S. and if you try it, I am sure it will be the same for you.
Well, that concludes my culinary adventures in Orlando. We ate out a bunch more times, but at nothing worth writing about.
