Wall Street Cantina

I was running a series of errands downtown and decided to stop into Wall Street Cantina (19 N Orange Ave, Orlando, FL 32801) for a chimichanga which consisted of a rolled tortilla filled with shredded grilled chicken, green chilies, refried beans and cheese, fried to a golden brown topped with roasted salsa and melted cheese. I enjoyed it, and the portions were quite good.  Wall Street Cantina isn't the best choice for Mexican food downtown but I just needed a bite between chores  The table next to me, several men were focused on their cell phones the entire time I was there. People on cell phones ate a perfect subject to sketch because they ate oblivious to the world around them as they focus on their tiny screens.

Tin and Taco (40 W Washington St, Orlando, FL 32801) is a far better choice these days for Mexican food downtown, and it is just a few blocks away from Wall Street. Another decent choice is Gringos Locos ( 22 E Washington St, Orlando, FL 32801) which has the advantage of being open late at night. I recently ate a Lean Green Machine Burrito there that contained, chicken, guacamole, rice, lettice, pico, cheese, sour cream and salsa verde and it was quite good. 

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at analogartistdigitalworld@gmail.com
