Being local one usually doesn't brave a trip to International Drive. I don't mind heading over to I-Drive and exploring a bit. There are a few hidden gems worth enjoying even if you don't have friends in town for a convention. Café Tu Tu Tango is one of those unique spots that the locals continue to frequent for 20 years now.
The restaurant is a visual delight with local art adorning all the walls. It's fascinating to watch the various in-house artists working among the diners.
I've enjoyed a few visits to Café Tu Tu Tango. Recently Bryan and I stopped by during their Tu Tu Hour that takes place Monday-Friday 4:30-6:30. They offer two for one drink specials and $2 off appetizers. You can enjoy these specials at the bar or on their patio.

My visits to the restaurant have been during the day. I enjoyed lunch with the family and then Happy Hour a couple of times with Bryan. While I haven't been to Café Tu Tu Tango at night I did walk by once and could see an entertainer out front doing something with fire; it looked exciting. I've heard that there are belly dancers at night as well. These make for a fun night out with friends.
With the food, drinks, atmosphere and fun at Café Tu Tu Tango, it's easy to see why they just celebrated 20 years of business.
Café Tu Tu Tango is keeping it real and local on International Drive.
Café Tu Tu Tango is a participating restaurant at this year's Taste of the Nation Orlando that takes place Saturday, August 9th.
