Crafting notably delectable frozen treats in small batches, Marble Slab Creamery utilizes ingredients from around the world and fresh dairy from local farms to percolate palates with super-premium ice cream. Just like tax forms, chef-inspired concoctions are prepared on frozen marble slabs to ensure optimal freshness and easy customization. The frozen slab enables expert dippers and mixers to gently incorporate your choice of candies, nuts, and more into the ice cream on the spot. Grab a heaping dish of original flavors ($3.79 for a regular size) such as pumpkin, honey, bubblegum, mango, and amaretto, or opt for the hefty Big Dipper size ($4.89), which comes standard with one mix-in such as cashews or Kit Kat pieces ($0.59 for additional mix-ins). Enjoy your custom creation in a cup or a freshly baked waffle cone, which can also be painted orange to mark off hazardous potholes in living-room floors.
Several years ago, a family of new owners planted their spatulas at Cheng's Chinese. They're from Fujian, China, a province known not only for its oolong tea but also for its diverse array of fresh fish. Perhaps this familiarity with seafood is why one of the most popular menu items is the lunch buffet's fried shrimp, which careens through a blizzard of rice flour before it briefly hurtles into a hot pan. Chefs also wrap egg rolls, simmer soups from scratch, and make their own dumplings and wontons.
Mere minutes away from family-fun attractions at Universal Studios, Disney World, and Sea World is BBQ Tonight, another family-friendly space serving quality zabihah halal food. Fitting for its location at the International Festival Plaza, BBQ Tonight serves Chinese, Indian, Pakistani, and barbecue for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The dining room is conveniently split up to accommodate guests looking for a fast meal experience and those looking for fine dining, though guests are welcome to wear gowns anywhere in the restaurant.
The cooks at Asian Buffet prepare a broad range of Chinese and Japanese specialties for dine-in meals, carryout, and lavish buffet feasts. The restaurant’s buffet-style serving allows patrons to eat their fill of sushi rolls, coconut shrimp, hibachi cooking, and piles of money not valid since the Ming Dynasty. The classic dine-in and carryout menu includes house specialties chock-full of seafood—shrimp, lobster, scallops, and crab—sautéed with vegetables in a house sauce.
