Purple Orchid Cafe & World Grocery
Upon walking into Purple Orchid Cafe & World Grocery, it’s not uncommon to witness Nisa Fanou or her daughter, Sonia, warmly greeting regulars, introducing themselves to newcomers, or snapping photographs of grinning guests. They do more than just offer salutations, though. When the friendly mother and daughter aren’t fraternizing with customers, they’re folding fresh ingredients into authentic Thai curries, noodles, and rice dishes. They adorn plates with the likes of steamed dumplings, red curry with bamboo shoots, and pad Thai noodles with tamarind sauce.
To quell the kick of some of the spicier dishes, Nisa and Sonia offer sweet Thai iced tea and fruits topped with shaved ice, flavored syrup, and milk. They also peddle a variety of groceries and pastries that hail from all over, from fruity soda from Mexico to hovering cupcakes from the future. Purple Orchid Cafe & World Grocery also was named one of the top 10 restaurant values in Orlando by USA Today.
