Sweet Shiba dessert cafe opens on I-Drive, RoyalTea opens on the second floor of East End Market, plus more in Orlando food news

OPENINGS: Are you ready for black sesame donuts and cheese mousse tea? Dochi, specializing in those soft-and-chewy Japanese rice flour donuts, has opened on the second floor of East End Market. They’re currently serving on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., though the hours will likely expand. Best of all, RoyalTea will operate their second area tea shop from the same space at the end of the month. I see lines forming on stairs in East End’s future … City Works Eatery & Pour House, an upscale sports bar with more than 90 local and global varieties of beer on tap, has opened in Disney Springs … Sweet Shiba, a shibu inu-themed dessert cafe, has opened in the old J-Petal space on International Drive and Oak Ridge Road near the outlets. Like J-Petal, Sweet Shiba serves Japanese-style crepes as well as waffles, cheese teas, fruit teas, and savory items like takoyaki, grilled cold noodles and jian bing (savory crepes). Much snack! So doge! … Foxtail Coffee’s first shipping container cafe will open at The Yard at Ivanhoe in late spring/early summer … Agave Azul Cocina Mexicana will move into the space recently vacated by Ari Hibachi & Sushi on South Semoran near the airport … Chicken joint PDQ will open in SoDo near the Lucky’s Corner that once had a Lucky’s Market … BoVine Steakhouse, ever so slowly renovating the old Park Plaza Gardens space on Winter Park’s Park Avenue, is now hiring for all front- and back-of-house positions ahead of their anticipated March opening.
