Is there a difference? Oh my goodness yes!!!
One of the biggest differences…….a food hall is a destination for foodies catering to people who love to eat and try different foods. A food court is designed to keep shoppers shopping, stopping briefly to refuel – for more shopping.
Opened in summer/fall 2020 there are a number of food options, a general store and (of course) was anchored by a local brewery – Bowigens.
Food Halls are usually a collection of small locally developed restaurant concepts offering an assortment of unique food and beverage items, usually cooked from scratch.
Here’s a sampling of choices at Avalon Park:
There is one shop, specializing in local and/or Florida Merchandise.
So what did we eat? We haven’t tried all of the options but visited 3 different ones on this visit.
Pulled Brazilian chicken sandwich with yucca fries – Ginny
Poke bowl with salmon and other goodies – Adrienne
Gumbo was a starter – Eric
Followed by Korean BBQ beef and various sides – Eric again.
We topped it off with ice cream and beignets.
Just another line-up for Orlando’s food hall scene.
