What to Eat at Earls Kitchen + Bar Orlando

 Earls Kitchen and Bar Menu

I’ve been to Earls and have had the Atlantic Salmon, which was delicious and came with a side of aromatic Jasmine rice that had crispy onions incorporated. Anyone who knows me knows that I eat salmon and Jasmine rice almost weekly at home. So during our conversation I had Stefan recommend what he believes are the must-haves for anyone dining at Earls.

For starters, he says that the Tuna Poke is what you should reach for. A melody of fresh Albacore tuna, mango, avocado, spicy lime dressing and macadamia nuts, it is truly a pleasant way to start a multi-cocktail glutton-fest. Each bite featured a blend of varied textures and flavors, perfect for piquing your palate and starting off a meal. The flavors of the Tuna Poke went well with the Pandemonium cocktail, so be sure to ask for that.

Steak + Sushi

After much thought, and what seemed to be much internal conflict, Stefan revealed that the Steak + Sushi was the must have entrée. The dish was brought out in this handsome cast iron pot and the accompanying trail of sushi rolls was stunning.

After I took the first bite of the marinated steak that was swimming in a small pool of sweet and savory ponzu sauce, I felt a rush come over me. This rush was similar to what I would imagine a hopeless addict would feel once the needle hits the pulse. And boy was I existentially hopeless. I reached over for a sushi roll, hoping that would calm my salivating tongue, but once I saw that there was mango, that’s right, MANGO in the colorful roll I nearly fell out.
