Majority of food places end around 9 and thank goodness Tako Cheena isn’t one of those places. It was getting late and most places were closing.. and fast. Another great perk about this place is that it adhere to vegetarians, which is not the easiest things to find, especially with late night food. The cost of the place is excellent because if you’re not especially hungry, you don’t have to pay much to just grab something decent to eat, ($3.75 per taco) or you can indulge yourself in a “size of a baby’s arm” burrito ($10.75).
932 N Mills Ave, Orlando, FL 32803 – Tako Cheena
Compared to their previous location, the new place is a lot more roomier AND they have outside seating, which is great because night creatures are always hungry. I liked the layout a lot and as you can see in the pano photo below, it’s got a bigger space. They have this night and day atmosphere, where you can sit in the brighter lit area or sit in the darker yet comfy area.
I love me a one page menu. Simple and straight to the point. I wasn’t particularly hungry so I just ordered the Indian Curry Dusted Tofu. I have, however tried the K-town Cheese Fries in the past and it is phenomenal. (WARNING: it has Kimchi, so it only works if you somewhat like Kimchi.)
I’m laughing at the photos taken because the tacos literally look the same but I assure you they did not taste the same. The Asian Braised Beef is a familiar taste. Having grown up eating the marinated meat with Hoisin sauce, it’s a safe flavor to eat for all. I am going to say the same with the Thai Peanut Chicken. I always feel the fresh cabbage mix always has this bitter taste somewhere throughout the experience of eating it but that’s just me. And the Indian Curry Dusted Tofu was probably the lightest to eat out of the 3 of them. The tofu was a nice crispy texture with the cream sauce in it among the other decorative items. I think I liked this one best of the 3.
TR was delighted to indulge in a burrito, but opted out the Chicken for Tofu. We all chuckled at the description about how big it is and it does say “the size of a baby’s arm with 1/2 lb of protein.” I suppose depending on the baby, because it’s a pretty big baby arm! You can see the diameter of the burrito! Seriously would be one fat arm! Anyways, it was nice that they are accommodating!
Again, this place rocks due to the extend hours they have, great food and overall great experience for visitors. I guess the real challenge for me is to try something new each time I come here and write it out for y’all!
