The musician standing on the stage in a white blazer with an electric keyboard and a hand-held microphone is part of an eclectic Middle Eastern folk binge Saturday nights at Café Annie. This is the only evening that Annie is open.
UCF-area café-deli caters to a diverse clientele, many of whom come for the all-halal menu and cut-rate prices. Don’t pass up the amazing hummus. Spit-fired shawarmas and gyros keep the college set content, and meaty platters offer more bang for your buck. End with Turkish coffee and baklava fragrant with orange-blossom water. Closed Sundays.
Their spin on traditional Lebanese food is a lightness of texture and flavor that is both refreshing and inviting. Use the hot, puffy pitas to scoop up baba ghanoush, a smooth roasted eggplant and garlic puree with a wonderfully smoky taste.
Tucked in a corner of the Dr. Phillips Marketplace, this humble eatery may not have the cachet of its neighbor Anatolia, but as a kebaberia, it more than holds it down. The exclellent rice complements flavorful kafta kebab, shish tawook and rack of lmb. Traditional starters are all worthy, but consider crunchy fattoush sala and pizza-like safiha for a change. Baklava is served cold, but Turkish coffee is properly steaming,.
One of the priciest restaurants on the Trail is worth a visit for the fastidiously prepared Mediterranean fare alone. Succulent rack of lamb, rustic chicken soup and a cross-section of Lebanese staples highlight the offerings. Cheesy, syrupy dessert kenafa ends the affair with intrigue.
An oasis of authenticity, complete with odd decorations, exhilaratingly exotic smells and hearty but inexpensive meals. You’ll find perfect hummus, superior kibbeh and superb gyros, not to mention one of the best spinach pies around. A top spot to eat for $10 or less.
OBT spot is equal parts specialty grocery store, hookah supply, deli (all sorts of ready-prepared foods to take away) and lunch counter (fresh hot sandwiches sliced to order). A gaggle of smiling, gregarious women serve some of the best shawarma in town, sided with refreshing tomato-and-cucumber salad garlicky enough to ward off the undead.
Quirky café anchors the east end of the Milk District. A purposefully eclectic décor mirrors a purposefully eclectic menu of Indian- and Southern-inspired fare: pulled pork on waffles, minty grape leaves, umami naan. If the service won’t prolong your stay, the homemade pies and cakes surely will. Stellar beer list. Closed Sundays and Mondays.
The view of the downtown skyline is spectacular from this nook on Orange Avenue across from Lake Ivanhoe. Dining outside is a must, as is the hearty meze platter, with a sampling of enough Greek speicalties-baked feta, gyro meat, braised lamb and traditional salads melitzanosalat and taramosalata-to satisfy the gods on Mount Olympus.
