The Mills 50 District of Orlando is a haven for innovative chefs and local foodies. Also known as “Little Vietnam”, this district is home to critically acclaimed Vietnamese, Asian and international fusion cuisines. Whether you’re craving Mexican, a belly-warming bowl of pho, vegan queso, or a mouthwatering Cuban sandwich, you’ll find it in Mills 50. Freshness is the main ingredient at Black Rooster Taqueria, a locally owned “farm to taco” joint with authentic soft tacos, guacamole and to-die-for plantains. Next door, locals meet for drinks at The Guesthouse. Don’t forget to ask about the house specials. If barbecue is more up your alley, follow the aroma across the street to Pig Floyd’s Urban Barbakoa.
