|Mocha Latte from Mecatos|
& some delicious chocolate
treat that I didn't eat.
Friday become Friyeah when I can head to happy hour at Padrinos, a Cuban restaurant, that has migrated its way to Orlando from SoFlo. They've been serving Cuban food to Floridians since 1976. Though you could go there for lunch or dinner, I prefer happy hour where I enjoy sharing an order of a two-for-one mojitos with a friend. Since I am a T1, I am only allowed an occasional one drink a day. It is a great place to gather before the dinner hour. My girls love the Ropa Viejo while I stick to the happy hour menu which has 1/2 priced appetizers including empanadas. There are some real traditional Cuban offerings here, but I really want to go to one of their special events where they roast a whole pig.
If you find yourself in Orlando, you might just wander off the beaten path and try what I get to enjoy in the City Beautiful beyond the magic.
