Congratulations are in order for two Orlando-area eateries included in Yelp's new national list "Ones to Watch 2021: Black-Owned Food Businesses."

Chicken Fire on East Colonial Drive and StreetWise Urban Food in Belle Isle are each now certified #OnesToWatch on the popular review site's new "guide to highly rated and popular Black-owned businesses."

If you haven't had the pleasure yet, Kwame Boakye's Chicken Fire serves up Nashville-style hot (and hotter) chicken, while Streetwise Urban Food offers classic fare with inventive flair courtesy chef Peterson Pierre.

Check out the full list in map format through Yelp.
