While we both had an amazing time and the food was great, my DD can't get over her steak at LC and it's still her favorite. We ate at Tangierine as well but we never got to try the baklava!
Yes the steak at LC is soooo good. I wish it wasn't going to 2 credits!

Breakfast: Captain Cook's

Today was our KTTK tour. We went to Captain Cooks very early. I think it was 6:30. We poured coffee into our mugs and we went to the kiosk screen and chose this for breakfast:
The Eggs came as a side with the Mickey Waffle. The breakfast croissant sandwich was delicious. I gave I didn't taste the waffle or eggs. DD gave her Mickey waffle
I finally found the receipt for this breakfast, so I am editing this post. The scrambled eggs were a side dish for $2.59, Mickey waffle $4.59 and Breakfast sandwich $5.99, total with tax $14.03, which we paid for OP on the Disney Rewards Card.

NEXT UP: Lunch on KTTK Tour and Dessert!

Loving your dining report! What a wonderful and amazing trip you two had - some excellent restaurants, that for sure. When we go in two weeks we'll also be dining at Citrico's, CG, Narcoossee's and a few others that you have listed so I'm eager to see what else you recommend. Great photos!

I love your Capitan Cooks review! I'm glad you tried different dishes than mine. We are staying at the Poly on our upcoming trip and it's nice to know what other options are available.

Just caught up with your DR now and everything sounds lovely! The fillet at Cali Grill looked AMAZING! And the shrimp at Citricos looked absolutely delish! We'll be celebrating our second wedding anniversary on our trip next May and are trying to decide where to eat that night - I think Citricos has been added to the list of possibilities now Can't wait to read the rest

I highly recommend Citricos! Lots of attention there, especially if you're celebrating!

LUNCH on KTTK Tour and LTT Dessert!


When we started our KTTK tour, they gave us a menu to pick our lunch. I chose the Fried Shrimp Basket and DD chose the Anchors Away Sandwich. We each ordered water with the meal. I enjoyed both of the shrimp and the sandwich. I would give both DD rated them: She is not that much into many fried foods since they do not treat her well and the tuna sandwich had too much mayo for her liking but that’s only because she does not like mayo.

Unfortunately I didn't get photos of this meal.

When reading about this tour, we both noticed that there was no dessert given at this meal. We decided to make and ADR for Liberty Tree Tavern to get dessert. We heard so much about the Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake!

After the tour, we headed to LTT. We had a 2:00 ADR and got there a little early. They seated us right away. DD ordered this first:




Tavern Fried Cheese with marinara sauce. She didn't eat much of the Tuna sandwich or shrimp at Columbia Harbor House. These were very good I rated them DD was a bit disappointed since she used to see photos on Disboards of these tiny cheese balls and wanted those. She rated these Next I ordered Lemonade:


This was refreshing and the little light up Ariel was very cute! DD had water. But we really came for dessert:



Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake!!! This was gooey, warm and delicious with the gooey toffee inside and ice cream melted all over it!! This is THE best dessert in Disneyworld and maybe even further! We shared this and I now am in possession of the recipe but have a feeling that it won't taste like this when I make it. I rate this +++ and more if my rating system went higher and Disboards would allow that many photos in each post! DD agrees!! and more if I could!!!!! She wants to have this every time we go!

This was $21.27 with tax but not with tip. We paid for this on the Disney Rewards card.



NEXT UP: Dinner - KONA

Kona Part 1

We had a nice rest on the balcony and were ready for our 5:00 ADR at Kona. We were seated within 5 minutes. DD ordered a glass of sauvignon blanc and I ordered water.



The waiter brought out:


Soft bread with macadamia nut butter. This was just delicious! DD said she could have made a meal out of this. For my appetizer I ordered:


Potstickers - Wok-seared Pork and Vegetable Dumplings with a creamy Soy-Ginger Sauce. I liked this and give it DD didn't taste this.
DD ordered:



Lump Crab Cakes with Jalapeño-Lime Cream. These were just ok. A little dry. I gave them DD didn't like these and gave them

For my entrée I had:



Shrimp and Scallops - panko breaded shrimp and pan-seared scallops with sticky rice and ponzu, spicy guava-passion fruit and wasabi cream sauces. I liked the scallops, but not those vegetables. It was kind of spicey. The shrimp was ok. There was too much batter on it. The shrimp at Columbia Harbor House was a little better. I would rate this for the scallops. DD rated it:

DD ordered:



Coconut Almond Chicken - breaded and baked chicken breast served with a salad of Asian greens fresh fruit and almonds. I liked this! The chicken was slightly crispy with a nutty taste. The salad had fruit and nuts and was sweet. Very good. I gave this DD gave it She said it was fried but the salad was very good! We both loved that salad.

KONA PART 2 CONTINUED IN NEXT POST...........

Kona part 2

For Dessert I ordered:


'Ohana bread pudding served a la mode with Bananas and Caramel Sauce!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I asked the waiter if it were possible for me to get this dessert from 'Ohana. He said of course! This was very very good. Up there with Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake. I rated this DD rated it:
DD ordered:



Kilauea Torte - An explosion of warm liquid Chocolate inside Chocolate Cookie Volcano. This was good with the ice cream on it. When broken open it didn’t ooze out as much as some of the other molten cakes we've had, but it was hot and the ice cream melted into it. I enjoyed this too! I rated this DD rated it She said she loves molten cake, orders it frequently at restaurants and was disappointed that nothing oozed out. It was just cake with fudge inside. We also ordered coffee with dessert.

Total for this was $81.69 without the wine or tip. This was one credit each on the dining plan. We put the $8 wine on a gift card. At this point we spent so much on drinks, OP food and souvenirs, we ran out of Disney rewards and we were only half way through the trip! We both had a few gift cards that we received for gifts and started using those.
We were here about 1 hour and 20 minutes.

NEXT UP: BREAKFAST - SWEET SPELLS/LECELLIER????

The chicken and salad looks great. I have booked ADR here for our upcoming trip. I have never been here before and a little nervous about going. But that chicken and salad would be something I would order. Too bad about the molten cake, they might have cooked it too long.
Thanks for sharing!
