Each month, we shine a spotlight on a different neighborhood in and around the Greater Orlando area. Today, we’re wrapping up our spotlight on Mills 50 by answering a question you wanted to know about Mills 50.

Reader Ashley Z. asked us, “What are the secret things to order at the Asian restaurants in Mills 50? The things to you’re afraid to order but regulars know is THE best?”

So we rallied the troops from Orlando Foodie Forum (if you’re not a member on Facebook, you should be) and asked our foodie friends for their recs:
