Before I knew that Giraffe’s, a Brazilian Restaurant, was coming to International Drive, we bought a groupon deal for another Giraffe’s…the Giraffe Cafe at Royal Plaza Hotel on Hotel Plaza Boulevard.
On our visit we were told that Giraffe Cafe was undergoing a total renovation. As such, staff had been reduced and the Food and Beverage Manager would be our server in the lobby of the hotel. Interesting, huh? Turns out the service was excellent, as was the food, so fortunately we had a better than expected experience.
I started with the French onion soup.
Next we tried the fried shrimp Thai curry sauce.
My entree choice was chicken Marsala.
The mushrooms were fresh, marinated and sautéed to perfection. The Marsala wine sauce was lighter and not as much a “gravy” as I’ve had at some restaurants. Very good and a lot of food. I had enough for leftovers.
The hubs ordered a New York strip.
For dessert (even though we were both quite full) I ordered a chocolate lava cake served with vanilla ice cream and strawberries.
The hubs enjoyed his tiramisu.
