Korean BBQ Taco Box Reply

I have to admit, I’m late to the food truck craze sweeping Orlando and other cities like Chicago, NY, LA, etc. There are lots of fine food trucks in our city. It was a tough decision on which truck to start with. But I eventually started my new street food adventure with Korean BBQ Taco Box. They are usually located on East Colonial Dr/50 during the day, in a gas station parking lot. Back to that in a few.

This being my first experience with a food truck, I didn’t really know what to expect. I was surprised to learn that I had to wait for my food to be prepared, about 10 minutes or so. I asked the attendant what to go with. He asked if I like spicy. I said yes. He suggested the spicy pork taco box. I was expecting several tacos. I got one full size taco with a bbq chicken wing and a small piece of an egg roll and other Korean sides. The taco was fantastic with the semi sweet spicy tangy flavored marinated pork inside the soft taco. I was not impressed with the chicken wing that came with it, too much hassle to deal with standing up or eating a chicken wing in your car. Could of eaten another taco, yes it was that good. Another day I also tried the chicken teriyaki taco. It did not disappoint, quite delish, chicken was up seasoned well, overall good taco.

Price range for Korean BBQ Taco Box is $6-$10.

Back to my remark about the gas station. I tried to order a drink from the BBQ Taco Box truck and the guy stated they did not have drinks and it was best for me to walk inside the gas station and purchase my drink there. So I placed my order with him, walked over the gas station and waited for my order. I was the only customer there, and it still took a good 10 min plus to process my order. I assume all orders are cooked to order.
Well, my first food truck experience was good. Can’t wait to try another in the Orlando area.

Check them out on social media at Korean BBQ Taco Box’s twitter account for locations on where and when they will be. Enjoy eating!

City Fire American Oven & Bar Reply

The last time Orlando restaurateur Manny Garcia, 67, opened a new restaurant was about 15 years ago. But the CEO of Winter Park-based restaurant manager Atlantic Coast Management Inc. — who formerly operated Pebbles which he sold in 1998, and Harvey’s Bistro and Manuel’s on the 28th before they closed in 2009 — planned to keep up with the times in his latest venture: City Fire American Oven & Bar, in southwest Orlando. However, City Fire American Oven & Bar that was located in Dr Phillips at the Dellagio Town Center off of Sandlake Road has CLOSED. I wrote a review on this place and I will miss it. Over the months they changed their menu. They really had some hits on the old menu in my opinion and for some reason they changed it up?  Regardless, its closed. Will miss it.  However they still have another City Fire location open in The Villages at Lake Sumter Landing 1018 Canal St The Villages, Fl 32162. www.cityfirerestaurants.com
