Native Orlandoans remember a time when Oviedo was nothing but native woodlands and sprawling farms â" celery, horses, you name it. These days it's a fast-growing suburb with many, many residents, all of whom need a place to get their chow on. As such, innovative eateries have been popping up 'round these parts in recent years. Sushi Pop is one of them. Okay, it's still perilously close to an actual, working sod farm, but that doesn't take one bit away from the cool anime or its innovative menu of offerings. Many are non-traditional, employing ingredients such as fried capers and rendered bacon. Asian fusion brings bits of Vietnam and Korea into the mix, as well, along with interesting seafood and meat entrees. Desserts are quite creative, as well, and the chic décor makes it feel a bit South Beachy out here in the 'burbs.

- Best for Restaurants near Bright House Networks Stadium Because: Five miles from Bright House but light years from the prominent chain restaurants you'll find close to UCF.
