Amazonas Latin Grill
Where: Where: 8273 S. John Young Parkway, Orlando.
The lowdown: The menu at Amazonas Latin Grill in Orlando covers the islands and parts of South America. But make no mistake: Venezuela rules this kitchen. Lots of food for a fair price, and the staff is eager to help you explore the menu. That's my kind of foodie adventure. Try the lechon and the asado negro. The lechon was a rich Cuban-style shredded pork plate. The asado negro was a large slab of beef eye round, blanketed in a delicious thick brown gravy. Most entrees come with two sides, but you can pile them on at $1.29 a serving.
