There is no shortage of good food in Orlando, and there’s certainly something for everyone. From traditional to exotic, everything from fried, baked, vegan, and sugar-coated, you could spend a fair amount of time just eating your way through the city. If you're looking to sample something new and out of the ordinary, you have to try some of the unique foods in Orlando.
For the adventurous, there is a constant flow of new challenges to test your bravery with insane food combinations that could only have been born out of extreme hunger. Or boredom.
Whichever may be fueling your crazy food combo quest, we’ve compiled a list of seven of the craziest food combinations you can only get in Orlando.
Maine Lobster Ice Cream
Location: Cousins Maine Lobster Restaurant
Why You Need To Try It: This one starts out innocent with a basic blend of vanilla ice cream but escalates quickly with chunks of Maine lobster sprinkled in for (we think?) good measure. You’ll have to find out yourself!
Location: Teak Neighborhood Grill
Why You Need To Try It: It seems burgers have become the next salad in that you can throw just about anything in it. This burger is a combination of a French doughnut tossed in cinnamon sugar and served with a half-pound of Angus beef, topped with maple-pepper bacon, smoked gouda cheese, and an over-medium egg. Pace yourself.
Mama Ling Ling's Thanksgiving Sandwich
Location: Pom Pom's Tea House & Sandwicheria
Why You Need To Try It: The ultimate Thanksgiving rolled into one sandwich: turkey, gouda, stuffing, ginger cranberry chutney, mashed potato, and cream cheese between two slices of bread. Say Grace!
Spicy Egg Pizza
Location: Osprey Tavern
Why You Need To Try It: Another one of those dishes you throw pretty much anything you want on, this is a pizza topped with spicy marinara, snow peas, manchego, and a bantam egg.
Location: The Outpost Neighborhood Kitchen
Why You Need To Try It: Sure to cure almost anything that’s ailing you, this is a waffle topped with candied bacon ice cream, bourbon maple syrup, and more candied bacon on top.
Butter Chicken Taco
Location: Pig Floyd
Price: $3.49 each
Why You Need To Try It: Taco day is whatever day you make it! Here you’ve got spiced chicken tikka, toasted pepitas, fresh jalapenos, Greek yogurt, cilantro, jasmine rice.
Mango Tango Roll
Location: A-Aki Sushi
Why You Need To Try It: If it’s in a roll, it’s still sushi, right? Shrimp tempura rolled with cream cheese, avocado and slices of mango make a fruity and savory roll.
