K Restaurant

Location: 1710 Edgewater Drive Orlando, FL 32804

A close friend of mine was having a birthday and lucky for all of us, it coincided with Magical Dining Month (MDM). For those not familiar, MDM is a month long thing where a lot of the higher end restaurants have a prix fix menu that allows you to sample restaurants at a reasonable price. That is how K Restaurant came into my life.

I don’t have too much of an issue paying for good food, but I am also not a millionaire and need to be quite selective about my money. So MDM was the perfect opportunity to try something new and support a local business.

As part of the MDM, I was able to choose from a starter, entree, and dessert. My starter was a charcuterie board with various meats, cheeses, and pickled items. If you know me, you understand that this is all I need to survive in life. I could eat this every single day and never grow tired of it.

I thought that my starter would be the high point of my meal, but I was insanely wrong. my main meal was steak and potatoes. Yes, it sounds plain, but when something is simple, it has to be done right, and this was done absolutely right. The steak was cooked to perfection and was so tender and melt in your mouth. The potatoes and the gravy on the meat were the perfect complement to the steak.

But it wasn’t over. I still had dessert to get through as well. I ordered a peach cobbler, mostly because I am a sucker for fruity desserts. It was glorious and exactly what I needed to end my amazing meal.

Not only was the food amazing, but the wonderful thing about this place is that it is located in an old home converted into a restaurant. So there are separate rooms, a smaller more intimate atmosphere, and pockets of conversation happening all around. It was the perfect complement to the meal.

New Orleans Edition: Central Grocery

Location: 923 Decatur Street New Orleans, LA 70116

I’m not one for tourist traps or eating at the most famous places when travelling. I used to do that and found it overrated and that as a place gets more famous, the food becomes subpar. That’s what made going to Central Grocery a risk for me. EVERYONE told me I had to go while I was in New Orleans and it was only coincidence (as in I was hungry and close to the place and nothing else was open) that brought Central Grocery and I together.

Mamak

Location: 1231 E. Colonial Drive Orlando, FL 32803

Oh Mamak. At first I was scared, then I was intrigued, then I ate there and couldn’t wait for more. Let me break it down for you. I have wanted to try Mamak but I’m deathly allergic to nuts so I was scared, because it seemed like a lot of the dishes had nuts in some form. Continue reading “Mamak”
