So Orlando, you’re driving around for some grub and like many of us we have to battle between two cravings. I for one have opposing tastes at times and my belly was wrestling between Asian and Latin. I didn’t have too much cash flow to at the time nor the luxury to eat two different meals. If your taste buds have ever yearned as I have rest assured, your appetite will be appeased. On the cultural cluster that is Mills Ave, Tako Cheena lies alongside its road. The menu is simple, it offers a roster of tacos, burritos, hot dogs and a featured empanada with an East Asia approach. With the dogs, desserts and takos starting at as low as $2.50, Tako Cheena is one of the top Orlando restaurants to really get your fill of flavor.
The Korean Burrito mixes marinated bulgogi (korean beef), kimchi fried rice, Siracha, scallions and cilantro for a culmination of flavors that refreshes your usual greasy burrito fix.
With vegetarian options like the Indian Yellow Curry Dusted On Crispy Tofu Tako and dessert treats like the Asian Ginger Apple Fried Spring Roll Empanada with key lime condensed milk, nobody will leave without a happyplate.
Tako Cheena is a local gem that has a loyal following and is infused with in-house art for sale that decorates the walls. There’s no reason to miss out on this place as it is open til 11 p.m. during the week and open til 4 a.m. on the weekend. Just don’t sweat Mondays because they are closed then.
