Korean cuisine is healthy, too 

Strange but true: Orlando's newest source for Korean food is Chamberlin's Market & Cafe in Altamonte Springs. Several months ago a Korean husband-and-wife team set up shop in the health-food outlet to experiment with an evening menu. Their organic, mostly vegetarian dinners received such a positive response that the couple's cookery is now a permanent fixture.

Chamberlin's regular menu is still available at lunchtime, but from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, it's all Korean. The choices range from potato noodles to tofu stir-fried with pineapple sauce, as well as miso soup and " kim bop," a Korean version of sushi. There are fish and chicken selections, with most entrees in the $7 range. Of course, there's plenty of the Korean staple food kimchi, a hot pickled condiment that's loaded with chili peppers -- a little bit goes a fiery long way.
