Tangierene Cafe/Food & Wine Booths

One of Geoff's favorite places to eat is Tangierene Cafe in Morocco. He loves the Shwarma dish.

Before getting to Morocco, we stumbled across the French F&W kiosk. And decided some adult beverage would be nice:

We got the Pomegranate Kir & Cosmo Slush. I fell in love with the Cosmo Slush and think I got 2 more before the end of our trip I've always loved the Pomegranate Kir (and you can get this at the Champagne stand in France any time of year...it's not always on the menu though.)

After getting our beverages, we headed over to Morocco where Geoff & I split a platter for lunch (they're huge!) This is our combo plate:


I'm not a huge fan of the salad & couscous, but Geoff loves it, so we got a side of humos for me:


We absolutely love this place. Wonderful, fresh food. I really can't recommend it enough! Overall I give it a 10/10, like usual

After lunch it was time for one more beverage, at Belgium:


This was good, but a little small for the price.

I cannot wait to get the Pomegranate Kir! It looks so tasty! Morocco is one of my favorite places, too! The food is always so fresh and flavorful!

Bummer about the Dessert Party. I'm glad the view was great!

I keep hearing so many good things about the Tangerine cafe!

I'm on the fence too about the Wishes Dessert party for my trip next year. I'm also having a hard time figuring out how to fit it in my schedule.

That combo plate from Tangerine Cafe looked pretty good...what all was on there?

We did the Dessert party a couple of weeks ago and I wasn't impressed. You still have to stand up at the railing 15 minutes before Wishes starts to be able to see. The desserts were ok but we found that the CM's were clearing everyone's plates while we were watching the show. Very rude people trying to take chairs and use them to sit by the railing. I won't be spending that kind of money again.

Those slushes look really good.

I'm not so sure about the food; Mark might like it, but I don't like hummus and I'm not sure I'd care for any of that other stuff (I'm very plain and ordinary in my tastes in most cases). Maybe I'll tell Mark to give it a try the next time we are there.

I love the reviews. I actually forgot my password for here and had to get it sent to me. I was waiting to see what day you would get your corn dog nuggets.

Can't wait for your Jiko review.

They should add it as a permanent item along with the other slushies.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed myself at the dessert party...I'm just not sure I'd go again.

It's really, really tasty. It's also pretty mild as far as being adventurous is concerned. You should definitely give it a try!!

I wouldn't go out of my way to book the dessert party. It's nice to have the designated area for Wishes, and the desserts were tasty...it's just soooo much sugar!

The meats were taken off a spit. There's lamb (the darker meat) and chicken. There's also Tahini with it, sometimes it's on top of the meat, this time it was on the side. Then a Taboulah Salad (which is parsley and such), a cold couscous salad, humos, and bread.

Oh we were lucky then, no one got in our way, we were able to sit right at the table! Maybe it helped that I snarled at people as they walked by (kidding.)

He should try it, and you can just take a bite! It's not that adventurous really. Geoff wanted it last year, and I figured if I didn't like it, I could head down to Sommerfest for a Brat

Raglan Road

Prior to this trip, we had never been to Raglan Road. I had heard excellent things on the DIS and decided we needed to try it...good thing I'm the planner

To start, we had the App Sampler for 2...
Quote:
Appetizer D'Lirrah for Two - our Dalkey Battered Sausages, Georges Bank Scallops, Guinness Glazed Ribs, and Chicken Lickin' Skewers
I didn't take a picture of it, sorry! I can't believe how much food was included...and it was meant for 2 people! I thought it was the perfect size for the four of us

Sorry for the picture quality, I didn't use flash. To drink, Geoff & my Dad both got a beer sampler, my Mom got a Cider sampler. They all looked something like this:

They were all empty at the end of the meal, so I guess they were enjoyed

For dinner, I had the Goats Town:
Goats Town - Irish goats cheese terrine made with sauteed garlic, shallots, ****ake mushrooms in an herb and breadcrumb crust served with a berry compote and mixed greens

I have a real thing for goat cheese, and I didn't want anything super heavy, so I decided to go with the salad. There were a couple of salads that looked really good! This one really hit the spot for me. The goat cheese was nice and creamy, the flavor was spot on.

Geoff had the Raglan Risotto...with chicken:
Raglan Risotto - Risotto with shiitake mushrooms, garden peas, shaved parmesan, and rocket lettuce.

He liked it, but would probably try something else next time. They were out of a pork loin that he wanted.

My Mom had the Pie in the Sky:
Pie in the Sky - reach new heights with our chicken and wild mushroom pie served with a rocket lettuce salad

She was expecting arugula, so she was a little disappointed in that, but she totally cleaned her plate, so I guess it didn't bug her too much!

My Dad had the Bangers & Mash:
Bangers and Booz - Guinness and onion bangers on mash, topped with caramelized onions and beef stew

He really loved this. Another plate cleaned!

For dessert we got 2 to share, the Bread & Butter Pudding and the Dunbrody Kiss.

Menu:


Ger's Bread & Butter Pudding - Like no other pudding you have ever tried. Believe us

One of the little pots has a vanilla sauce, the other? Melted butter. I mean honestly, can you get any better than that?

Dunbrody Kiss - Chef Dundon's gift to America. Chocolate. Add chocolate. Then add some more.

If you're a chocolate lover, you'll love this!

Overall: 10/10. We loved Raglan Road, super glad we finally tried it. Service was some of the best we'd received all trip. Food was excellent. Highly recommend it. (Funny story: the table next to us had about 8. They all ordered fish & chips )

Your meal at Raglan looks really good. I've always strayed away from it because one of my good friends here ate there and said it was really awful (perhaps she hit it on a bad night?). I've been reading more and more good reviews of it lately.

We had a great meal, I'd definitely check it out!

Backlot Express

I don't think it's any big secret that the Quick Service options at HS are a little lacking. We found ourselves looking for lunch at HS and used Geoff's handy dandy iPhone (the Undercover Tourist App) to pull up menus. We decided on Backlot Express.

My Mom was with us, so we split 2 sandwiches 3 ways.


This was the grilled turkey & cheese with arugula and red peppers. Mine was without the peppers (they're gross!) I think this will become our go-to lunch at HS. It was pretty darn tasty and easily the best QS meal I've had at HS.

Overall: 9/10. I wish there were a few more options at HS that were as good as this was!
