Cafe Tu Tu Tango is my favorite place to eat

AOL City Guide (is that anything like CityBeat or CitySearch? Which one of those is affiliated?) is holding a vote for Orlando Best Theme Restaurants, among other things. That link will take you to a place where you submit your vote. I personally recommend Café Tu Tu Tango, and if you've never been there, for SHAME!

Tapas dining, good food, live entertainment, signature drinks, and speedy service. I was there about 2 weeks ago and had a fantastic experience, wuite possibly the best I've had in the 8 years I've loved the place. Not the best place to take people on a specialized diet, but really good if that is no problem.

Tapas, in the case of Tu Tu Tango, means every dish is an appetizer, and everything is meant to be shared. There is a stack of small plates on your table and a jar of forks, knives and spoons. The salads and pizzas are the most filling dishes, I recommend you grab a few of those. You MUST MUST have a Cajun Chicken Eggrolls, no question. The Baby Lobster Tails are really good if they're available, but you could get two less expensive dishes for the same price. Potstickers, Pear craker-things and most of the Pork dishes are good. Did I mention the pizzas and salads, and how filling they are? I really enjoy the Sangria, order it by the pitcherful, you'll be glad you did. All of the desserts are good, but if you like sweet and rich foods after dinner, the Key Lime Pie and Guava Cheesecake will disappoint you.
Expect to spend $20 - $40 per person at this restaurant, depending on drinks and dessert. Since the prices vary, there is no way to lock down an exact price. You might spend $6 per dish, you might spend $9 or as much as $12 (Lobster Tails). Afterwards you might like to head to Pointe Orlando or Universal CityWalk for some entertainment or a film. If you get there before sunset, you might want to stop by the Peabody and see the ducks. Also on that side of town is Howl at the Moon, a local favorite transplanted to tourist town.
