Kesh Restaurant: Great Restaurant on East Side of Orlando

Kesh Restaurant is located in a plaza on the corner of E. Colonial Drive and Alafaya Trail.  To look at the front of the building, you would never expect to find such an amazing restaurant.  In fact, I probably would have never gone there if the Orlando Food Bloggers did not have a meetup.  I live in downtown so I was a bit reluctant to drive all the way over to the east side of town at 6p just to try a sandwich shop.

When we first arrived, there’s was a nice sign welcoming us to the restaurant, which was a nice touch.  You order at the counter and then they bring your food to the table.  I love blue cheese and I had heard that the blue cheese chips was exceptional so I ordered that for an appetizer.  They were quite tasty.  One of my dining companions ordered black bean dip and it was also very good.

For my meal, I ordered an amazing grilled cheese made with brie, goat cheese and provolone.  Of course, I added bacon because everything is better with bacon.  My husband ordered a roast beef and cheddar sandwich.

Several of the others around me ordered a Chicago Style Dog and Christina’s Chili Mac which consists of mac & cheese with beef, bean chili, cheese and jalapenos.  Both of these dishes looking amazing.

The homemade spaghetti and the pasta with crawfish also look delicious.  In fact, I did not hear one person complain about their meal.  Food and service were both very good.
