Vacations are often a time of excess: staying up all hours of the night, drinking to excess, and yes, eating all the foods we know are bad for us, but we just can’t stay away from! We come back to reality feeling tired, groggy, and wondering how our pants have become so tight—but of course, we really do know the real reason behind our shrinking pants, and it’s not from drying them on high heat! So what if we told you this vacation could be different? What if we told you could, at the very least, still eat food that is delicious and still good for you? And what if we told you that food could be found at these five restaurants in Winter Park? Yeah, we thought that would be your answer, so keep reading and enjoy!
Fontenot’s Seafood and Grill, 78336 US-40
That’s the thing about healthy food: It doesn’t always have to be grass and other tasteless menu items. Fontenot’s is the perfect example. Offering the good (including veggie burgers and salads), the not so bad (Turkey BLAT Wraps), and the “Yeah, I probably shouldn’t try that” (Chicken Fried Chicken and Southern Chicken Fried Steak), there’s a dish that will please even the pickiest of eaters in your family!
Rudi’s Deli, 78699 Main Street
Everyone loves a good deli, and Rudi’s Deli is one of the best we have ever tried—and we travel a lot! Their menu is an extensive one, featuring the standards (both old and new) and also offering a large “herbivore” menu. Even their healthy foods taste like they aren’t, and we’re ok with that!
Mountain Grind Coffee and Bistro, 47 Cooper Creek Way #126
We’re still not really sure what gluten is, but going gluten-free is today’s latest craze, one that Mountain Grind Coffee and Bistro stands behind! Their gluten-free menu hasn’t had the taste removed with the gluten, their coffee is organic, and their vegan menu features dishes so tasty, you won’t miss the meat!
Pepe Osaka’s Fish Taco Tequila Bar & Grill, 78707 US-40
You may be surprised to learn about a Japanese Mexican Fusion restaurant, and you may be even more surprised to learn about the healthy options in an international food that is typically known for its gooey and wonderful cheesiness, but Pepe Osaka’s manages to combine all of the above with grace and ease! Try the spicy tuna tacos; they are our favorite!
Crooked Creek Saloon and Creekside Eatery, 401 Zerex Street, Fraser
Located just a few miles down the road from your Winter Park Escapes vacation home, the Crooked Creek Saloon serves tasty treats that won’t add inches to your waistline along with an amazing view. This fine dining restaurant is a popular one, so reservations are recommended.
