I just uploaded some more food pics from last trip! These will be from Mythos. This meal tied with Tchoup Chop it was just incredible and everything was delicious. Looking now, I wish I could be there today for lunch!

We started with a pizza as an appetizer. It has tasso ham and fresh tomatoes, a few different cheeses and it tasted like, MORE!



Next up was the Buffalo Chicken Wrap



Kids chicken fingers, fries and corn.



My husband had the cowboy steak sandwich - really good!



I had the MOST amazing special. It was the risotto of the day. Huge sea scallops over risotto with asparagus in a blueberry reduction sauce. So amazing.



To top it all off we had a few of those shot size desserts to share. They were chocolate mousse, blueberry lemon and a raspberry cheesecake. One better than the next!

I agree!! Everytime we eat at Mythos I get the risotto of the day and I have never been disappointed.

During our trip in Feb. DD & I split the scallop risotto w/blueberry sauce. At first I was a little leary about the blueberry sauce, but it was fantastic!!

We also tried one of each of the dessert shots (except the espresso flavor, don't like coffee). They had five different flavors when we ate there: Chocolate Mousee, blueberry, rasberry cheesecake, Keylime & chocolate espresso.

Thanks for bringing back the wonderful memories of our lunch

Tchoup Chop Pictures!

The infamous Mai Tai



Seafood starter compliments of the chef.



Grilled Double Cut Pork Chop



I had a seafood special that I will have to look up. It was sea bass with shrimp in an amazing reduction sauce.



Stir Fried Green Beans with Pork Glaze



Chocolate dipped strawberries in a huge bowl of fresh whipped cream.

Fan2CSkr, yum!!! Thanks for posting all of these.

I always, always get the risotto of the day at Mythos, and I often wonder if maybe I should try something else. That pizza is looking pretty darn sweet.

We are loving what Mythos is doing with the scallops. Our last visit, instead of the blueberry reduction, it was a champagne raspberry reduction. It was ubert-hot outside (September), and the raspberry and champagne were so light and airy. Even tickled our noses a bit. Stellar!!!

lindalinda, that Oreo martini looks really tasty! Looks like dessert! I think its interesting that your pic of buffalo chicken wrap and mine look so different. Guess it matters who makes it.

On a side note - will be adding more pics today after I upload some.

Here's a few from recent trips:

Mythos --

Risotto of the day
Scallops and veggies with that champagne/raspberry reduction



Salmon



Pastabilities
Oak-fired chicken on top of a pasta tossed with mushroom pesto surrounded by a garlic/cream/wine sauce ... with veggies





Tchoup Chop

Southwest-style snapper with a cream/avocado puree, black beans and a carrot/cilantro slaw on top



Appetizer from the chef's menu. Shrimp were inside the rolls, and the things on top were fried green onions. Awesome and tasty use of green onions, IMO. About the best "onion rings" we've ever had.



Sorry the photos are so large. I need to venture over to tech support to see how to reduce a bit.

Here's some pix from our stay last week. Mythos, once again, exceeded our expections in so many ways. We dined twice for lunch. I've also included a pic of the fish & chips from Finnegan's.

Also worth mentioning: Although it's not at Universal, which we believe blows WDW food out of the water generally speaking, the character breakfast at O'Hana at the Poly was excellent. No pix, but was definitely a highlight of our trip and a restaurant we'd recommend.

Ok...here's pix with descriptions above every photo. Sorry in advance for the size. At least everyone will get a very clear, large picture

Mythos:
Blueberries were the theme of this menu. This is the spinach salad with salmon and blueberries, topped with bleu cheese crumbles, tomatoes and a warm bacon vinaigrette. Stellar!!! One thing I love about Mythos' salads: The dishes they serve them in. In each of the four corners are a small dip, a crevice, where a bit of the dressing ends up in. Wonderful for those last few bites.




Risotto of the Day -- seared scallops atop spinach risotto, fresh veggies, with a creamed mushroom sauce. Excellent!!!




Buffalo Chicken Wrap, stuff with mashed potatoes, chicken & cheese. Fries on the side. Very good.



The next was one of the best things I've ever tasted. I plan on calling Mythos to inquire about the recipe. Oak grilled pork tenderloin, topped with a gooey crust of chopped pistachios, blueberries and blue cheese, with a port wine sauce underneath. Served with warm spinach tossed with fresh garlic, as well as smoky baked macaroni & cheese, mushrooms & grape tomatoes. Truly out of this world!!! Honestly, the best pork I've ever had.



Lastly, the fish & chips at Finnegan's
