Orlando: Emeril's Tchoup Chop

I skimmed over the Zagat guide for America's Best Restaurants and found Emeril's Tchoup Chop in the Orlando section. I made a note of it and when I looked it up online, found it was right in Lowes Royal Pacific Resort, the hotel we were staying at. How very convenient.

A unique interior with a very large pond in the middle of the room.

Watermelon Brulee with Bacon. Sounds very strange, but it was definitely interesting, the top of the watermelon had been torched and therefore had a thin layer of crispiness.

Hickory Smoked Australian Lamb Shank with sweet potatoes and barbeque sauce, $22. I had one bite of this and it was tender and didn't have that game-y taste that often comes with lamb.

Mongolian Glazed Slow Roasted Pork Belly in Steamed Buns, $9. I loved the pork belly at Ippudo in New York, but this one just blew me away; it was exciting and flavorful, sweet, sour, and slightly spicy.

Next time we go back I definitely want to try the banana cream pie. We were looking forward to it but were all so full by the end of the meal we couldn't do it.
