Tangierine Cafe

I promised Geoff 2 things on this trip: 1) Star Wars, obviously. 2) Lunch at the Tangierine Cafe. He loves this place. He went to Israel once and absolutely loved the food over there, the food here reminds him of the food in Israel and therefore it's love for him!

While waiting, I grabbed a picture of all the options:


We went with our old stand-by, the combo platter (Chicken & Lamb Shwarma.)


Neither of us are crazy about the cold salads, so we asked for extra hummus instead...and they just gave us extra hummus instead of none of the salads Oh well. Geoff still likes the other ones, but this way I didn't eat all of his hummus!

We wound up being slightly disappointed this time. We got there right at opening and we must have gotten the previous days leftovers because we got the pieces that were the rings around the poll instead of just slices, so it was kind of dry. Flavor was still there, just a little dry. Oh well. We always split this dish since it's so large.

We keep meaning to try other options, but we're creatures of habit!

Am I the only one who loves Quorn Sausages?
I would love to be at Ghiradelli's ice cream parlour with a massive choc sundae

A should probably note that we weren't disappointed enough that it would stop us from returning, but enough to mention it

But I gather you're still sold on it, and will be trying it again....so that's good.
Silly Glenn, you don't need an ADR! Tangierine Cafe is counter service.

And yes, we'll definitely return. You can also get a side order of hummus, which is one of my favorite snacks.

We just had 2 new Falafel joints open in town and I am dying to try them!
Oooo, YUM! Now I want to go to our Mediterranean place here! They don't have schawarma but their hummus is fantastic, and I love their falafel!

Haha, yes! BREAKFAST! I'll have to keep it in mind for our annual Church Brunch, I bet it'd be good to bring for that!

If you're a fan of mushrooms, you should definitely try the one with mushrooms & arugula. It's awesome. And thanks for joining in!

Snack Time in Germany!

Time for snacks! One of the other reasons we split the platter is because you then have plenty of room in your stomach to have a few snacks around the World Showcase!

Obviously, we stopped in Germany's Karamel Kuche. (Or Caramel Kitchen...) We had to anyway because they sell the sugar free caramels that my Dad had asked us to pick up...so we got snacks too!



The last time I was here was in December and the line was out the door it was so long. Today it had all of 3 people in it. Horrah!



Geoff got some of the Werthers caramels that you could pick what you wanted and how many you wanted. Then for the next week or so he'd randomly remember they were in his pocket and ask me if I wanted one

I knew exactly what I wanted:


I love this. The fresh caramel combined with the sweet marshmallow, it's like heaven. And surprisingly light.

After our adventure in the candy store, we headed further back into the pavilion and got a wine flight (well, Geoff got a wine flight, I had a sip and ate my caramel treat.)







He tried the first Riesling, the Apple Wine, and the Ice Wine.

NY's wine region (where we live) is very similar to Germany's, so we're very familiar with Rieslings and Ice Wines. So I had a sip of the Apple Wine, which was surprisingly good!

And that ends our adventures in Germany!

Would you believe that as many times as we've visited WDW, we have NEVER been in this store?!! Are we crazy or what!!?? And I so noticed the 'snack credit' symbol on some of the candy That's great news for us! We could use our snack credits here!

Thanks for making me crave chocolate so early in the morning
