As 2015 comes to a close, I couldn’t leave it behind without making a list of some of my most awesome food experiences the year brought my way. From tacos to empanadas and French toast to Ethiopian cuisine, Central Florida showed me just how diverse and amazing it can be when it comes to vegetarian and vegan options. Without further ado, and in no particular order, I present my list of awesomeness! (Be sure to click the titles for more information.)
I like to think of myself as a crab cake connoisseur, so when I heard of Daya‘s Crab-less Cakes, I knew that I had to try one. And, yes, it was definitely a winner. Thick, crunchy, and flavor filled… it was the perfect way to try one of my favorite dishes, meat-free.
In this episode, watch as Daya Chef Michael shows me how he creates this crowd favorite.
There’s a new vegan restaurant in town, and it is so good! I am both happy and excited to introduce to you Daya, which is described as “an upscale, 100% plant based restaurant.” Located in the city of Winter Park, I can tell you that Daya is definitely different from your ordinary vegan restaurant. From the beautiful layout and design of the restaurant to the attention paid to the plating of the food, I am quite excited to see Daya flourish into Central Florida’s new “it” place for meat-free dining.
