One of the must see’s in Orlando is Park Avenue in Winter Park. There is a charming historical district of cobblestone streets lined with shops and restaurants. My mom has already blogged about the wonderful farmers market there, but there is much to see and do on Park Avenue. After a long day of shopping we spotted a cute Thai restaurant with outdoor seating right on the sidewalk. Thai is one of my absolute favorites and neither of the dishes we ordered disappointed. They were served with a beautiful presentation and were as good as they looked. I had the Praram Chicken and found that the balance of flavors from the sauce and the chicken and spinach all went very well together. I will definitely consider this as an oasis in the shopping desert and will most certainly be visiting again.
Shopping on Park Avenue and need a break? Head straight to Orchid Thai and get a table outdoors. This little gem of a restaurant is on the north side of Park Avenue. The food is fresh, tasty, and presented beautifully. I’ve eaten here several times and never been disappointed. Bonus…the people (and dog) watching as you enjoy your meal is entertaining. The wine list presents some fine choices and of course there are Thai beers. Inside the dining room is intimate and inviting with little touches that make this restaurant shine like fresh orchids on each table.
