Food halls are a popular trend around the country, and Orlando is no different. This new trend allows for the foodie in all of us to sample different tastes, flavors, and cultures all in one spot. It differs from a food court in that food courts offer quick and easy while a food hall offers the diner an experience.

Orlando Food Halls
Here are 10 food in Orlando and the surrounding area to try with the kids.
À La Cart
Now, À La Cart, is not your typical food hall. Instead, it’s an eclectic blend of five food trucks ranging from surf to turf. You can pair your food with some of their craft beers too. It is definitely a different dining experience than the traditional food hall, but still offers the fare and flare.
Here is another food hall-ish kind of place. Boxi Park is not the usual food hall setup since it is made of stationary, repurposed shipping containers. It does however offer all the bells and whistles of a food hall – delicious food, crafts beers, and live music.
