For the past four years, I have had the pleasure of calling Winter Park my home. Despite the sense of familiarity I have with the area, I was recently stumped when asked by a freshman where to eat when you are craving Indian.
Of course I later remembered Tamarind as a top choice, but out of this occurrence sprang the idea to feature the staff’s best of’s—our favorite places to haunt in Winter Park (and Orlando, but Winter Park sounds better). My staff, with their usual sense of humor and love for satire, came up with a series of snarky selections for your reading pleasure.
In addition to the staff picks, be sure to check out the informative Readers’ Choice, which include everything from Best Professor to Best Casual Eats–it’s all here. We gathered 467 unique votes and provided the results in the following pages. Some of you were cheeky (I personally appreciated the reader who voted “The Old Meal Plan” for every category), but most of you were serious, and I thank you for that.
We are The Sandspur, and this is one example of how this paper continues to be “Everything Real. Everything Rollins.”
