Culinary School Presidential 2
Orlando's which is really a nice place. This
dinning area, which is setup like a restaurant is divided into two separate rooms, which can accommodate
a total of about 60 to 70 people. With windows between the walls of the
kitchen and dinning area, youíre able to watch all the cooks in action
while they make your food. And Orlandoís serves lunch to the public on a
daily basis for a small fee. Come to find out, most culinary schools do
this, so if you ever wanted a really nice lunch for about half the price, visit
one of these types of schools. That door to the right is
one of two and are between the kitchen and the dinning area. This one is
for people leaving the kitchen only.
Orlando's also has a bar but they don't serve alcohol, at least not at
Right outside in the hallway is this food sculpture that is made of
mostly sugar. The picture really doesn't do it justice and is truly
One of the things Tracey wanted to do on
Thursday night was for
the whole family to go out to dinner, at a place that she called, "fun".
Apparently she went to this restaurant with some friends a few weeks
prior and really liked it, but told me to keep an open mind about
the place. With that being said, I was becoming skeptical.
This "fun" place
had Moroccan food, (which I've never had) and from the outside it really looked
like a dump (no kidding) and now I was wondering why she would ever stop a
place that looked this bad. With only two cars parked outside and paint
peeling from the building, I really had my doubts about this place. Once
you were inside, the main seating was in room that looked like you were
inside a tent, but was really rectangular.
When we walked
into the seating area, only two couples were in the place (not a good sign)
and the tables were only 16 to 18 inches from the floor. There was
seating around the perimeter of the room against the walls, but with the
six people that we had in our party, some of us had to sit on floor with
pillows (both of my daughters and myself). And if you look close, mine
had stuffing coming out of it.
Almost everything on the menu
was the same price and was a five coarse meal. Now Iíve only had meals
like this once or twice in my life so this was very different for me.
This main room had some kind of cloth that draped from the ceiling down
onto the walls that ran down them about two feet. And it felt like I
should be watching some kind of dancing girls at any moment. To make a
long story longer, the food was excellent, everyone cleaned their plates and Iíll have to say, it was
fun just like she said. But we did find out that if you asked the waiter
anything at all, you were in for a long conversation so by the end of
nobody said anything to the guy.
