A Spanish inspired tapas restaurant thrown into the middle of the craziness of International Drive in Orlando. Let the neon “Café Tu Tu Tango” sign draw you in like a moth to a flame. Once you pull up to this Spanish inspired restaurant, leave your keys with the complimentary valet and enter into this artistic and fun environment. When you walk in, you immediately take notice of the amazing artwork that decorates the entrance. The entire restaurant is covered in original art for sale. Customers are encouraged to browse among the art selections while they wait to be seated.
Upon seeing the menu, guests will immediately know that Café Tu Tu Tango is a tapas restaurant. “Tapas” are appetizer-style dishes that are intended to be shared. They are great because restaurant-goers can enjoy many different dishes for a low cost. The menu changes constantly to make each experience here feel like a new one. From the cocktail menu, try the award-winning red sangria. Enjoy your drink served in a classic mason jar. For your meal we suggest you start with the Spiced Alligator Bites. Local Florida wild gator bites complemented with key lime mustard makes for one tasty combination. At Café Tu Tu Tango, you eat the gator, the gator doesn’t eat you.
Another favorite is the Dynamite Shrimp, for good reason. Crispy shrimp is coated in a sweet chili aioli. This kind of flavor combination is something you won’t be able to forget. A favorite on the menu is the Jalapeño Mac and Cheese. This mac and cheese did not come out of a box and you will agree once you take a bite into the macaroni accompanied by oven-charred tomatoes, crunchy pancetta, sautéed onions and finished with a jalapeño-horseradish mornay sauce. Each dish comes incredibly plated; they are almost too pretty to eat. But don’t let that stop you, snap a picture and then get right back to munching.
With all these tasty, tempting dishes, you might forget to leave room for dessert. Don’t make that mistake. Café Tu Tu Tango offers some amazing dessert options. Some of their best are their dessert pizzas. Right now Tu Tu Tango is featuring a banana icecream dessert pizza. This full dessert pizza comes with a large scoop of salted caramel ice cream to make for a delicious sweet.
Café Tu Tu Tango creates an environment that provides entertainment while you enjoy a delightful meal. Artists, belly dancers and tarot card readers are often employed by the restaurant to give restaurant-goers an experience they will never forget. For a taste of a non typical Spanish tapas restaurant, make Café Tu Tu Tango a stop on your next Orlando adventure.
