What food do you miss?

We all know Disney changes menus at places from time to time. And while change can be good I am sure we all miss a sandwich/entree/salad/desert/snack/etc that we loved.

What food that Disney no longer serves that you miss?

My food is the pretzel sandwich they use to have at Electric Umbrella. It was so good.

I'd forgotten all about the Beaver Tails but they were great. My answer is the vegetarian curry at Rose and Crown. Also, a loooong time ago there was a dish similar to Crawfish Monique served at Bonfamilles. I loved it so much I learned to make it at home.

We remember that dish. Miss the Blackened Steak and Bonfamilles.
Off the top of the head other items missed are the Clam Chowder in Bread Bowl at Columbia Harbor House. KeyLimeSmoothies at OKW. The original Potstickers and Macadamia Nut Crusted Mahi at Kona Polynesian (it was served with tempura lump crab freash asparagus and a wonderful sauce)
Top of the list are the original HotDog and Hamburger Buns. Can understand wanting to go the healthy route but don't believe the buns are that much healthier than the originals. Burgers and Dogs are not a health food item as far as I know LOL. They just crumble apart. Bring Back the Bun!

I used to get a toasted roast beef sandwich with Pineapple slaw at the Electric Umbrella that was excellent. But sadly...it's gone.

I miss the Handwiches which they used to serve at The Land. Especially the chicken salad and the roast beef topped with cheddar cheese sauce.

Hope you have a Magical Disney day!

I miss the "good" food. It seems like the food has gotten worse and worse over the last 4-5 years - ever since the Dining Plan became so popular.
