Oh Que Bueno Restaurant

After a long day of eating at Epcot Food and Wine it was time to hang out with my dear friend Melvita from Chicago.

She was in town for a workshop and we had to see each other and have dinner. Fortunately, we were near a great Colombian restaurant on Semoran near the Orlando Internationl Airport.

Oh Que Bueno has been on this side of town for quite a bit now. Most of my Latino friends come here and have told me how good the food is.

The atmosphere is nice. When you walk in the music is playing at full blast and the locals are enjoying good conversation and a good meal.

It smells great as soon as you enter and we were greeted and seated as soon as we walked in. Tonight seemed a bit busy. Every table had someone and the servers were moving and shaking helping the customers.

Joaquin was our server for tonight. Very friendly gentleman with a great sense of humor and excellent regarding knowledge of food and dessert. I had to start off with a Colombiana to drink.

Bandeja Paisa.
Arroz, frijoles, carne asada, chorizo, chicharron, morcilla, maduro, huevo y arepa (rice, beans, steak, fried pork skin, sausage, fried sweet plantain, black sausage, fried egg and corn cake). This was my dish. The portions are enormous.

Grilled skirt steak. This was @xobejm dish. She ate the whole steak. She loved it! Joaquin suggested to try an assortment of their sauces.

Carne Asada.
Grilled top round steak. This was @tarajroth dish and Melvita got the same dish but with plantains. We all tried the different sauces and they were all so good. Mojito, Hot Sauce, and Chimichurri. I did not take a photo of the sauces because we immediately attacked them.

Postre De Natas
Creme dessert

Flan De Queso

Tres Leches. We had to share all the desserts tonight. These hit the spot and were a great ending to our meal.

Luckily, tonight we were hungry. Oh Que Bueno went all out and delivered an amazing huge meal and dessert. Overall, very nice place. Decent size. Music is a bit loud. TV screen to watch sports. Full bar. Clean restrooms. Great customer service.

Joaquin, Gracias por todo. La comida y el servicio estuvo excelente. Te lo agradezco mucho.

Sal Y Azucar Colombian Restaurant

The name alone got my attention. While in downtown Kissimmee we spotted a restaurant and it was closed for the evening. So, we ventured out a bit more and found this place. Located on Main street just north of Broadway. Had to go in with wifey and taste it for ourselves.

When we walked in there was a gentleman sitting down. Hence the half picture here. The place has only been open for two months. Very nice place. Small, but cozy.

When we walked in we were greeted by Dora. The owner and chef of the establishment. She is from Colombia. Her boyfriend who serves at the restaurant is from Puerto Rico, but he doesn’t cook. All the food is authentic Colombian home style cooking. Dora did not speak English, but there was a gentleman sitting in the restaurant who interpreted for us. Gracias amigo. I never got his name.

Complements of the house we got Sancocho de Gallina. (Hen Soup) “Often considered a stew. It usually consists of large pieces of meat and vegetables served in a broth” (Thank you Wikipedia) @tarajroth and I tried it and it was delicious. The consistency was perfect and wifey and I ate lots of it.

@Tarajroth ordered the Carne Asada with white rice, tostones/plantain, and a Colombian cole slaw salad with carrots and onions.

The Bandeja Paisa. Traditional Colombian dish with the works. Carne Asada, tostones/plantain, white rice, egg, chorizo, arepa, Chicharron, and beans.

Photo courtesy of @tarajroth. Great feast shot. Big Kudos to @tarajroth who is taking pictures like @droolius : )

Great place. Opens 7am to 7pm Monday to Saturday. Local restaurant with lots of character. It is Cash Only. Luckily, I saw the sign while we were eating. @Tarajroth made a quick dash to the bank nearby. Thanks honey. You rock!!
