In addition to great food, Pepe Osaka’s also sports a tequila bar which offers a variety of cocktails made using tequila. Those in a less adventurous mood wanting something a bit more mild to drink may instead be interested in the many latin beers the bar has to offer. Authentic Japanese sake is also available here, keeping the Latin-Asian fusion strong.

There’s something about crepes which make them the perfect indulgence while away on vacation or taking some time out on the town.

Hernandos Pizza Pub
Pizza is perhaps one of the most common and well loved foods in America, so we had to include another pizza spot. When choosing where to eat as a group, it’s hard to go wrong with pizza. Hernando’s Pizza Pub specifically is also one of the highest rated eateries in Winter Park.
A longstanding cornerstone of Winter Park, Hernandos Pizza Pub has been the choice of both locals and tourists from all the way back when Winter Park was known as Hideaway Park.
Food aside, Hernando’s is also known for its unique and eclectic atmosphere. A long standing tradition of the establishment, the walls are covered in thousands of $1 bills, each decorated by guests and patrons. Supposedly over $20,000 worth of bills cover the walls of Hernandos.
