Tastebuds Food Truck
If you’ve ever been to the Winter Park Farmers Market and spotted a big crowd surrounding a green vehicle, you were probably looking at Tastebuds Catering’s food truck. It’s a popular stop for the Saturday morning marketers, and I can understand why.
I caught up with the truck at a recent food truck gathering and sampled from Tastebuds’s Latin American menu. I had the Venezuelan arepas sandwich, which featured the corn meal patty, grilled so that it has a nice bit of charred glow, then split a la a pita pocket and filled with whatever meat or seafood you prefer. I had the shredded beef, but there was also lots of cheese in it, too. I got a bit of the creamy hot sauce on the side, and I was all set.

Sometimes being evicted can be a good thing.
The Townhouse Restaurant — or Town House, you’ll find it both ways, even on its website (or web site, if you prefer) — has been part of downtown Oviedo for decades. Some might even say it WAS downtown Oviedo. It had occupied a little box of a building at the corner of Broadway Street and Central Avenue on a spit of land triangulated by Railroad Street.
To call it rustic would be an understatement. It looked its age and was often unkempt. But it was comfortable, and it had a dedicated and loyal base of customers who were horrified when it was announced, in 2014, that the Townhouse house would be torn down to accommodate the broadening of Broadway.
But it didn’t mean the end of the Townhouse. It found new digs only several hundred feet up Central Avenue and now has more seating in a spacious restaurant with volume ceilings, a pleasant outdoor patio overlooking the Florida Trail bike path and a parking lot (which seemed to be used a lot by bikers who may or may not have been eating at the restaurant). And the old Colonial style sign has even been incorporated into the new building....

White Wolf Cafe
This is a funky little place in Orlando's Ivanhoe Row district of antiques shops. When it first opened, in 1991, it was part cafe, part antique shop. But it was clear most people were coming for the sandwiches and salads than the collectibles, and eventually the cafe overtook the antiques store. The atmosphere may be more of an allure than the food, although most of it is quite acceptable. Still, most people see it as a fun meeting place than an eating place....
