What does everyone consider to be the tastiest food item on Disney Property? Please state where the food item is from as well. My personal opinon is that for table service i absolutely love the Chocolate Wave at Coral Reef. For a actual meal i would probably say the steak at le cellier is AMAZING!!!! For counter service i would say the best meal is Casey's Hotdogs (they are AMAZING!!!!!!) or the pastry shop in France (gotta love creme brulee and chocolate mousse) as for Disney Snacks i would probably say that the cookies at the main street bakery are some of the best cookies EVER!!!!!! I can't be in disney and not have a main street bakery cookie at some point the the trip. Dole Whip is my other favorite snack (it makes me feel like i'm in hawaii). On a non-disney note but definitely a orlando note the Chocolate Cauldron Cake at WWOHP is another dessert/treat that is absolutely AMAZING!!!!!! If you are ever in Islands of Adventure you have to try this cake. It seriously is a must have for me now! I have so many other disney food items that i love as well, these are just my absolute favs :)

Without a doubt, in 21 WDW vacations, the answer is the wagyu beef at V&A. I don't even like red meat and I thought this dish was beyond delicious.

Best snack would be butterfinger cupcake(now all over WDW)

Best appy would be spicy kazan roll at CG

best entree would be mushroom filet at LC

best dessert would be almond encrusted cheesecake at Narcossee

Best cocktail is a tie between Trex cottontini and the Pina Colava..

Best snack - choc. mickey rice krispie treat.
Best food - The prime rib at LeCellier along with the cream cheese mashed potatoes.

Ooooh! I'll play, this sounds like fun.

My favorite snack:
At Karamell Kuche in Epcot's Germany, I love the milk chocolate covered caramel square topped with sea salt. It is AMAZING. I take the tiniest bites of this whenever I get it to make it last as long as possible.

My favorite TS meal:
The best meal I've ever had in my life was at Jiko. I started with the Artisanal Cheese Selection and then had the Oak-grilled Filet Mignon for my entree. I really enjoyed the taste pairings on the cheese plate, even (especially) the tastes that were unfamiliar to me.

My favorite CS meal:
It's a three way tie. I like the Ginger Mongolian Beef with a double side of the Udon Noodles at Sunshine Seasons in Epcot. (I like even more that you can get just a side of the noodles there for $2...YES! $2!...if you just want a little something but not a whole meal). I also like the Chicken and Spareribs plate at Fairfax Fare in DHS, but that's when I'm trying to get something that my daughter and I can share so we can save a little money on food. The third favorite is the (large!) fruit salad available at Flame Tree Barbeque at AK. That is my favorite lunch on a very hot day, really refreshing.

My favorite TS dessert:
The entire dessert array at Boma. There's something there for everyone, but not a lot of the same old same old. The banana bread pudding and vanilla sauce are great, but I also love all of the bite-sized desserts there, too.

My favorite CS dessert:
The strawberry shortcake available at Sunshine Seasons at Epcot is really good, might be my current favorite.

My favs are the Spicey Kazan Roll at the Cali Grill, filet at Yachtsman Steakhouse, and the Almond Cheesecake at Narccoossess :worship:

It is hard to narrow down a single item but I'd go with the lentil soup at Boma. There is a lot both there and at Tusker House that I liked but the one item that stood out was that soup.

My turn:cool1:

Best drink: lapu lapu from Tambu Lounge. But only if sipped during Wishes.

Best Snack: I'm suspending judgement till I've had a chance to try out the new Karmel Kuche. I do love all things caramel.

Best Appy: cheddar cheese soup at Le Cellier.

Best Entree (TS): Mushroom filet mignon with mushroom risotto at Le Cellier. Filet Mignon can be tricky to get right, and ours was perfect both times we had it. I wanted to marry the chef the first time I tried it. (so did DH:rotfl2:)

Best CS meal: Chicken and rib combo from Cosmic Rays. The ribs at Flametree come in a really close second.
Best Dessert: Sticky Toffee Pudding at Rose and Crown

App: Sonoma Goat Cheese Ravioli at California Grill

Entree: Halibut or grouper any way that bluezoo wants to prepare it. (And that is assuming that I am not eating at V&A. A bit unfair to try to limit myself to one dish from there since the menu changes so frequently).

Dessert: Chocolate Mousse Dome at Narcoosee's.

I don't know how you read my mind, but you did. :laughing: I had this in December, when I believe it was a new item on the menu. I thought it was fantastic.

The most recently "wow" entree for me would be a lamb ragout over pasta at Il Mulino at the Swan. They served it at the Swan and Dolphin Food and Wine Classic and then offered it on the menu. Not sure if it's still there or not, but I loved it.

I'd say my favorite foods depend on my mood at the time. If I'm not in the mood for a snack, nothing appeals.

I'd like to give another shout out for the wagyu beef...only we had it as the special at The Yachtsman's...Both hubby and I couldn't get enough! And the Cabernet reduction was sooooo good!

And of course there is my beloved Dole Whip :goodvibes
