Feed Your Need For Unique Cuisine At The International Food & Drink Festival In Orlando 

Last year over 8,000 people turned out for this annual experience. This year featured countries will include Puerto Rico, Colombia, Italy, Spain, Chile, Peru, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, the Middle East, India, the USA, Venezuela, Thailand and more. There are so many items we can't wait to try. We for sure have planned a stop by the Puertorican Pina Colada tent. Touted as straight from Puerto Rico, you can pick up an Abuelo's Pina Colada with or without rum. To cool off we'll probably snag some Dragon's Breath. This nitrogen ice cream experience is definitely on our radar. We are also particularly excited for a Taste of Peru Orlando and the Korean-Vietnamese Fusion of Vinny & Kory. However, we might save ourselves for the burger eating contest, because there's no such thing as too many burgers, right?  

The International Food and Drink Festival will run from 10 AM to 8 PM on Sunday, September 30th at Lake Eola Park (101 N. Rosalind Ave, Orlando, Florida). Lake Eola Park is located in the heart of downtown Orlando. If you've never been to Lake Eola Park you can expect a beautiful scenic experience. Nearly a mile of sidewalk circles the lake. There are trees and foliage, as well as resident ducks and swans. There are also plenty of things to do. You can visit the local Downtown Orlando bars and Thornton Park restaurants surrounding the lake (we recommend  World of Beer | Downtown Orlando) enjoy the view of the iconic Orlando fountain, or hop on a swan paddle boat.
