Emeril's Tchoup Chop
This is in Orlando, FL, and it's different than the regular Emeril's restaurant in CitiWalk, which I'm not too crazy about.
However, this little restaurant, in the Royal Pacific Resort, right by Universal and Islands of Adventure has NEVER disappointed me, and we eat there
at least one night, every time we go. Rather than Louisiana cooking, it is more of a South Sea Island fare (to fit with the theme of the resort).
I can even order things off the menu that have ingredients I don't like, and I will STILL enjoy it! The ambiance is great (would be better if they had
a dress code, but hard to do in FL, and even harder to do in a resort), and the service has always been top notch.
The menu changes often, but one of my favorites is almost always on there...beef tenderloins in this sauce that is simply amazing (my mouth is
literally watering right now)...served with these mashed potatoes that simply beat any other I've ever had.
(note, my favorite isn't on here today)
You don't have to be a guest of the resort to eat there either.
