Cafe Tu Tu Tango (Orlando)

Hey Dolls,

Last weekend, my girls Bernie, Krystle, and I took an impromptu weekend trip to Orlando.  Besides the fun that girls have on these types of weekend get-aways like shopping and partying, good food is a must!!!  We went to the good ole' internet in search of somewhere interesting to dine and we found Cafe Tu Tu Tango, which was PERFECT!!!

As soon as we pulled up to the restaurant we were all exclaiming how cute it was on the outside! The inside was an art lovers dream!!! There was art for sale by local artist decorating the walls, live art being made on the spot, great music to jam to while you ate, and just an overall fun environment!

I thought the writing on this pole was so fitting for my girls and I!  " I'm so fabulous, I sweat glitter"  I LOVE IT!!!
On top of this cafe being funky and right up my alley, the food was Ah-Maze-balls!!!
The food is tapas style which is always great for sharing.  I had the shrimp and grits which I literally inhaled!  I was so pleased at the amount of shrimp that it came with considering it was a small plate.  The grits were made with cream and manchego cheese, in a savory, lemony broth with garnish of green onion and pancetta....freakin' delicious!!!

We went on Sunday afternoon in time for brunch.  My girl Bernie decided to go for an item off of the special brunch menu, Apple Cinnamon cream cheese stuffed french toast!  It was gone in 60 seconds amazing.

My friend Krystle, had a hard time choosing because just about everything looked appetizing.

She finally decided on the Grilled Guava BBQ glaze pork ribs and cucumber sonomono salad.  They were finger-licking good!

I can hardly wait to return to Orlando just to go back to Cafe Tu Tu Tangos. There were a lot more menu items we wanted to try. Next time you're in Orlando, you've gotta try this place. You won't be disappointed. 

Have a great week!!!
