Spotlight: Naguará K’arepas


Are you an arepas fan? If so, you’re going to want to get over to the intersection of Curry Ford Road and Chickasaw Trail and try Naguara K’arepas. If you’re not an arepas fan, you should also go here; you’ll soon be a fan. If you’re not sure whether you’re a fan or not, it might be that you just aren’t familiar with them. Arepas are essentially little round corn cakes made with masarepa, a ground cornmeal. Think of a fatter type of tortilla or a South American version of a pita. Like those devices, arepas can be stuffed sandwich-like with any variety of good fillings. They’re especially popular in Colombia and Venezuela, where they’re part of the daily diet. …

Spotlight: Magical Dining Month Returns


It’s here! Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining Month, which somehow defies all principles of the modern Gregorian calendar by running more than five weeks, runs through Oct. 1. More than 100 restaurants are participating this year, up from 65 in 2016, including for the first time some well-known Disney restaurants. So even with 38 days, you’re not going to be able to visit them all. (No. NO. Stop arguing, you just can’t do it.) Also up this year is the cost, $35, two bucks more than 2016, and they’re not even paying Emeril Lagasse an endorsement fee this year. So you’re going to have to do some research to narrow your decision. Here’s how I go about choosing which Magical Dining …

Spotlight: LemonShark Poke


Sometimes when a food fad starts trending, we scratch our heads in befuddlement of what all the fuss is about. (I’m looking at you, cupcakes.) But occasionally, you’ll happen upon someone who is doing the current food a la mode in such a way as to produce an aha moment, where you say, “OK, now I get it.” If you’ve been wondering about the surge in restaurants offering Hawaiian raw fish bowls, your eureka! is waiting for you at LemonShark Poke on Restaurant Row. For those still unfamiliar with it, poke is similar to Japanese chirashi, which features raw fish served over rice. But whereas the fish in chirashi is basically the same as sashimi — that is, sliced in …

Spotlight: Lion’s Pride


For a place called Lion’s Pride, there’s not a whole lot to be proud of at this soccer-themed sports bar and restaurant. I suppose the developers could take some satisfaction in having created a sports bar of epic proportions. The orchestra-and-balcony style stadium seating facing a wall of giant televisions provides great viewing. But although they’ve got the visual part down, this sports bar loses on all other aspects, from service to food and even to the warm and flattish beer. A good sports bar should be able to manage a decent burger. LP’s All American Bacon Cheddar Burger certainly looked good, a thick patty topped with a slab of almost melted cheddar cheese, a couple of rashers of bacon …

Spotlight: El Pueblo


El Pueblo’s sign says it is a grocery as well as a restaurant, but unless I missed something I saw nothing in the way of a market. It operates as a quick-serve — order at the counter and the friendly staff member will bring your food to you when ready. What the sign should say is: We serve authentic and good Mexican food I chose No. 4 on the menu, the Chilaquiles. As is traditional in Mexico, the chilaquiles is available with a red or green sauce and a choice of meat. It’s a simple dish with squares of tortillas as the base, with sauce, meat and cheese on top. I cheated. I got the green sauce and requested some …
