Just in time to welcome Cinco de Mayo, Central Florida’s most popular purveyor of fresh and tasty tamales will open a brand new brick and mortar location, Tamale Co. Hourglass, on Sunday, May 5th, in the Hourglass Social House.

The 1,300 square foot restaurant is an open dining concept housed in the relaxed, shared space also occupied by Foxtail Coffee and Vegan eatery Leguminati, with in-restaurant seating and a beautiful outdoor patio. Tamale Co. models a modern yet traditional Mexican décor and incorporates pre-Hispanic cooking utensils and equipment to give guests an idea of the art of tamale making.

Tamale Co. Hourglass will feature top tamale favorites from the food truck, plus an expanded menu of Mexican style street food representing Chef Fernando and wife Jennifer’s hometown and roots, and the location will also serve solely Mexican craft beer and imports, wine, mixed drinks, sangria and mimosas. 

“We are pumped to open Tamale Co. in the very cool Hourglass Social House,” says Fernando and Jennifer Tamayo. “Our partners at Hourglass have made the corner so beautiful, welcoming and trendy. It’s the ‘go to’ hang out space, and we are very fortunate to grow our Tamale Co. brand there, expand our passion and make it easier for all our food truck lovers to find us and enjoy our delicious tamales every day. We hope everyone comes out to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with us and join us for our very exciting Grand Opening.”

Don’t miss Tamale Co. Hourglass Grand Opening on Sunday, May 5th from Open to Close located at 2411 Curry Ford Road, Orlando, FL 32806. Hours of operation are Monday-Thursday 11am-9pm, Friday and Saturday 11am-11pm, Sunday 10am-9pm. For more information, visit www.tamaleco.com or call 407-455-1580.

Tamale Co. was founded in Orlando by Chef Fernando Tamayo and Jennifer Tamayo in December of 2012. Tamale Co. is original and traditional, unlike any other. They are passionate about the idea of tamale, a Mexican dish that can be traced back to the pre-Hispanic times, made of masa filled with anything from meats to fruits to vegetables, wrapped in cornhusks and combined with delicious Mexican sauces.

Making it a very traditional way to create a unique assemblage of different flavors, Tamale Co. offers the best gourmet Mexican tamales, each hand-crafted to an artisan perfection and prepared with the freshest ingredients Florida’s local farmers have to offer.

Tamale Co.’s rich passion for the art of quality and authentic cuisine is sure to unwrap the original taste. Tamale Co. Food Trucks can be found serving at Farmers’ Markets and making local visits throughout Central Florida, Brevard and Flagler Counties and the Gulf Coast.

F&D Woodfired Italian Kitchen

F&D Woodfired Italian Kitchen, located in the emerging Hourglass District, is Orlando's newest neighborhood sensation offering Neapolitan inspired woodfired pizzas and true Italian family pasta recipes.

F&D Woodfired uses only the finest, fresh and natural ingredients and the “36 Hour dough” is said to be some the best in Orlando. All of the pastas here are all fresh made from Trevi Pasta in College Park.

The menu here has woodfired pizzas of course, but they take great pride in the other menu offerings here as well. From meatballs, to mussels, to beef carpaccio and the F&D garlic bread, the antipasti menu is solid.

Pizzas are made to order with a select offering of pre made suggestions like prosciutto and arugula, or a margherita, but you can also create your own here as well.

All pasta is made fresh by Trevi Pasta in College Park, but F&D does the rest and serves up some amazing dishes like the house made bolognese lasagna in an iron skillet, or the wild mushroom pappardelle.

Secondi offerings include a buttermilk semolina crusted chicken parmesan, wood fired Atlantic salmon, osso bucco and veal marsala.

Inside is small, with a limited seating area and a few seats at the bar, but they do have a nice outside covered patio area with more seating available. Overall, this provides for a cozy atmosphere with a laid back attitude.

The F&D House Salad can be ordered individually, or as a family order, so we started with the family portion for our party of four. The salad features Romaine and iceberg lettuce, red onions, artichoke hearts, roasted red pepper, pepperoncini, pecorino and a wonderful house vinaigrette.

Calamari Fritto Misto was very tender and had a perfectly crispy batter with fried pepperoncini & marinara sauce for dipping.

F&D Garlic Bread was a rather simple presentation of bite sized pieces of bread covered in garlic, extra virgin olive oil, grana padano cheese and marinara for dipping.

The House Made Bolognese Lasagna was pretty impressive made with Trevi pasta, bolognese, ricotta, grana padano, basil and served in an iron skillet, as it was finished off in the wood fired oven.

Fennel Sausage and Rapini Pizza was pretty extraordinary with a Bianca pizza base, housemade fennel sausage and rapini. The crust was perfectly charred and crispy, and the housemade sausage was amazing.

I really enjoyed the Bolognese Pasta with rigatino, veal, Angus beef, pork, creme, fresh Italian herbs & pecorino with pasta made by Trevi Pasta. The veal, Angus beef and pork are finely ground together to make an excellent ground meat base.

As I said earlier, aside of the menu offerings of pizza specials, you are totally free to make or build your own pizza at F&D. This was a custom creation of Fennel Sausage, Italian Pepperoni, Caramelized Onions, Minced Garlic, and Crushed Tomatoes...and it was simply delicious!

There is limited seating at the bar, where you can watch the wood fired pizzas being made, or you can order wine based cocktails, infused sangrias or a Peroni and a small selection of craft and traditional beers.

We were very impressed with F&D Woodfired Italian Kitchen and will be returning soon. Come taste the passion behind the authentic recipes and some of the best Pizza in Central Florida...you will not regret it.

F&D Woodfired Italian Kitchen is open Monday to Friday from 4:00 pm to 10:00 pm, Saturday they are open from 12:00 pm to 10:00 pm and Sunday from 12:00 pm to 9:00 pm. They also serve Brunch from noon to 4:00 pm on Saturday and Sunday.
