Bugambilias isn’t the sort of place you’d just wander into, not unless you live in the vicinity of Lancaster Road between Orange Avenue and South Orange Blossom Trail. If you do ive in the area, you know there are myriad Mexican restaurants, many as authentic as you’re likely to find in the area, to choose from. Bugambilas would be a good choice.
Where else would you expect to find a place called Iron Cow Cafe other than in the Milk District? Well, OK, maybe in the Rust Belt, but we’re not there.
Iron Cow is rather a large place that in early evening hours (it opens most days at 6 p.m.) it looks like a big empty warehouse with a bar and kitchen set up on one side. Indeed, the business’ own description calls it “a modern industrial warehouse merging food, beverage and music…” (Nothing comes after the ellipses, so I don’t know what we’re to infer from them.)
Claddagh Cottage is getting closer to reopening. The address is still Curry Ford Road but about a mile removed from its original location.
You’ll recall that the popular Irish pub was forced to close when the owner of the small strip of shops sold the land to a developer who razed the buildings to make way for a Walgreens. Because we don’t have enough Walgreens.
Something Fishy, the Apopka seafooder, has added a line of custom cakes to its offerings. The new venture is called Something Sweet, which is a much better name.
If pie is more your thing, the American Pie Council, not to be confused with the Austrian Pie Council, is sponsoring the National Pie Championships (making, not eating) in Orlando. Hundreds of pie makers will be gathering Friday, April 6 and Saturday, April 7 at the Rosen Centre Hotel to compete and “hundreds of judges” will name the nation’s top pies. Check the Pie Council’s website for more information and to find out if you can be one of the hundreds of judges.
