3 New Winter Park Restaurants That Should Be on Your Radar

3 New Winter Park Restaurants That Should Be on Your Radar

As local Orlando foodies, we’re always keeping our eyes out for new restaurants in and around Orlando to try. Lucky for us, this year has ushered in tons of new restaurant additions to our local food scene, and we couldn’t be happier. Here’s a roundup of some new foodie fare that’s either coming soon or has recently opened in Winter Park.

Hunger Street Tacos

When I drove by the old home of BB Junction one day and realized it was no longer there, I was pretty depressed. Known for their incredible burgers (made with grass-fed beef) and locally sourced ingredients, BB Junction was a neighborhood favorite. However, my spirits lifted when I learned the space would soon be home to a Mexican street food restaurant, Hunger Street Tacos. When it comes to tacos, I have absolutely NO objections.

Hunger Street Tacos currently operates as a catering company, and they’re known for their authentic Mexican street fare. But soon we’ll all be able to try the deliciousness for ourselves when the restaurant location opens at 2103 W Fairbanks Ave in Winter Park.

Menu offerings include the Tacos Campechanos (Brisket and Chorizo topped with onion, cilantro, lime and avocado salsa verde) alongside delicious desserts like the Xocoflan (pictured at top of article) – a bottom layer of chocolate cake topped with a cream cheese flan, rich caramel drizzle, and pecans. Sign me up!

Good things take time, and as such there isn’t an official opening date set yet. So in the meantime, you’ll have to satisfy your taco cravings elsewhere or catch Hunger Street at a local event. Keep up with their Facebook page for events and opening news.

Bulla

The definition of Bulla alone makes me excited to visit this gastrobar. BULLA: [boo-ya] – the ability to create a stir; what everyone’s talking about.

Bulla recently opened its doors in Winter Park at 110 S Orlando Ave and has already created a buzz. Bulla is “inspired by the most popular tapas restaurants in Spain” as described on their website. The menu at Bulla is a mix of cured meats, cheeses, small plates, and large plates. There’s also a brunch menu and for $27, customers can select three options from the brunch tasting menu. Bottomless sangria and mimosas are $15/person.

The Winter Park location is the third to open in Florida, with the other locations in Doral and Coral Gables. Whether visiting for lunch, dinner, or brunch, Bulla is certain to be a crowdpleaser for local Winter Park foodies. Check out the menu here.

Foxtail Coffee

I know, I know – not technically a restaurant but Foxtail Coffee is still worthy of a spot on this list. The craft coffee movement has reached Orlando, and several great options exist already (Lineage, Gratitude Coffee, and Barnie’s Coffee Kitchen just to name a few). It’s exciting to see more options pouring in as craft coffee gains momentum.

An opening date has officially been set, which should be welcome news for coffee lovers who have been following along diligently for months. Foxtail Coffee will open up on December 1 at 1282 Orange Ave. in Winter Park. In addition to favorites like their cold brew, Foxtail is putting a spin on things by introducing a cocktail menu as well.

Foxtail has been spotted at several locations including Market on South, The Courtesy, local farmer’s markets and events, and Infusion Tea if you just can’t wait until December. Keep up with their Facebook and Instagram pages for more info, or stare continuously at the countdown on their website.
