Favorite Vegetarian/Vegan Options in Winter Park Area

Vegan Picadillo Tacos from Reyes Mezcaleria in Orlando with chips and salsa

My top 3 favorite restaurants in the area are (in no particular order):

 

Marinara Pizza
The Marinara pie from Pizza Bruno. $10!

-Pizza Bruno (Their pizza dough is vegan and they have a Marinara pie that I literally crave weekly. Their dough and sauce are THAT good that you don’t even need cheese. The capers and garlic add plenty of flavor.)

-Domu (Lots of vegetarian appetizers and vegan ramens I dream about.)

-Reyes Mezcaleria

Luckily they all have fabulous vegan options. I ate at all three before going vegan and can continue to without missing anything. Reyes just added vegan tacos to their menu that are delightful and their chips and salsa ($3!?) with the 3 salsas are my all-time favorite chips and salsa.

Current Obsessions

Summer has officially announced itself in Winter Park. 90 degree weather makes it unpleasant to knit the wooly warm stuff anymore, so inside I go with a short, small projects and a nice cold beer. I joined the rest of civilized society and signed up for Birchbox. I received the free Rifle Paper Co. notebooks for April, yay! I also found Cigar City’s Strawberry Shortcake beer at Whole Foods to accompany its un-boxing.

My third trip to Valhalla Bakery was startling. I arrived 15 min. before it opened and there was a still line already assembled around the building. I made sure to get a dozen this time to get my fix in because I can’t handle an0ther 30 min. wait in line! The Pistachio-Rosewater flavor was heavenly though!

In love with the TONYMOLY Korean brand now at the WP Village Ulta. The face masks are amazing, the strawberry nose strips are absolutely delightful smelling and work better than Biore. Also obsessed the with little Panda eye brightening stick. The bunny sleek mist I use as a makeup setter.

Got my hands on this whimsical Madeline Tosh yarn in the sold out Holi Festival color. Not sure what I will do with it yet, but I’m thinking a hat.

Last weekend, I stupidly tried to go to Valhalla Bakery in Orlando at 1:45pm for these so-called legendary donuts.  Apparently you have to get there on the early side to get them or they sell out. I’m willing to do crazy things for a good donut. So this Saturday, I literally threw my glasses and flip flops on and drove there on no coffee in my pajamas. I arrived around 8:45am to a line of about 4 people that quickly accumulated behind me. I got a half dozen of these monsters and they were well worth the mission. Thick, meaty, perfectly sweet. They remind me of the one I got at a cart called Dough at the Brooklyn Flea. I will be back my friends.

Valentine’s Day Weekend 2016

Valentine’s Weekend 2016 included a new pink and brown hat and a trip to the Oxford Exchange in Tampa, FL for a Bloody Mary and Eggs Benedict.
