We were only in Orlando for two days, and out of all the restaurants I had researched, we chose Agave Azul for lunch.
We arrived later than planned, so the restaurant wasn’t busy, and we were able to pick a nice booth. The décor and ambiance was modern and inviting. I also found the waterfall wall, which separated the dining very unique.
The menu options were just enough not to overwhelm us. Our server was friendly, and provided complimentary chips and salsa shortly after ordering. We went with the recommendations of Carne Asada and Chicken/Spinach Enchiladas. Both dishes were well prepared with fresh authentic Mexican flavors. The rib-eye steak was tender, but definitely on the skinny side.
My favorite drink is horchata, and I was eager to try their version. The presentation was simple and interesting, with the addition of a straw made from agave. Unfortunately, I was underwhelmed and disappointed by the taste. There was too much cinnamon, which completely masked any flavor of rice milk.
Overall, lunch was enjoyable, and a good start after a hectic morning of travel.
