My vote would be chocolate lava cake with ice cream from CA Grill
I am most certainly going to be sampling those liquid treats

Sorry guys! I had planned to be a whole lot farther on the trip report. I was very sick yesterday and all night. Hip, migraine, vomiting - sick! I feel a little better today. I have to get some stuff ready for a special youth service we are having tonight. I will try very hard to post another installment as Utahmama would say, "soonish".

Day Four - Tuesday: Cantina de San Angel (Mexico), Kringla (Norway), Gelatos (Italy)

Sorry for the long break. I hate being sick! Okay on with the food! For some reason on this day I have a ton of Boma pics and not much of everything else. I thought I took a picture of the schoolbread? Anyway, we spent most of this day in Epcot. For lunch we decided to eat in Mexico. Of course, we had to stop at the Electric Umbrella to get DS his chicken strips and french fries (no pics of this – but it looks like all the other chicken and fries he ate this week).

Lunch – Cantina de San Angel

View from outside seating – very pretty.



Plato Combinacion - chicken taco, beef burrito and a quesadilla served with black refried beans and Mexican salsa – I can’t remember who all ordered this, but several of us did. The quesadilla is the folded one on top, the burrito has the cheese on it and the other is the chicken taco. I was hungry, so I ate everything except the beans (I don’t like beans). Everything was very good. Pretty typical Mexican fare. I especially liked the chicken taco. We all had a churro with our meal. I love churros! As a teenager, I spent two years in Spain (dad was air force) and I remember eating churros. In case, you have never had one – a churro is fried dough rolled in cinnamon sugar – YUM! You can kind of see two churros up there by the drink.



Cantina Nachos - tortilla chips, beef, cheese, tomatoes, jalapeno peppers, sour cream, black refried beans – my DD ordered this. It was good! Typical nachos.



I enjoyed the outside CS much more than the inside TS. My family just did not like San Angel Inn last year – too authentic I think. But the CS is regular Mexican food that everyone is used to. A

Snack – Kringla Bakeri og Café

I was not at all hungry, but determined to try School Bread. So I stopped in here and used a snack credit to purchase this delicious treat. I am very sorry, I thought I took a picture of this. Let me try to describe it and you can probably fine a pic somewhere on here. Okay, first of all it is huge. I at on this for 3 days! It is a round sweet white bread about 8 inches in diameter. Inside there is this delicious, thick, sweet custard! Then on top there is a light, sugary glaze with a lot of coconut flakes and another big glop of custard. Since no one in my family likes coconut. I got to eat this all by myself! I highly recommend this pastry, it was better than the one I had from France last year. A

Gelato from Italy

We passed a gelato cart in front of Italy and the cute little guy talked us into trying “the best gelato – better than ice cream – in the world!” I was skeptical – I am a big ice cream fan. The chocolate and vanilla gelatos were very good. Rich, creamy ice cream. I did not care for the lemon, but it was okay. The strawberry was also very good, a little creamier than ice cream. Sorry, no pics here either. If you pass one of these carts, you should try one. A

Later tonight, I will try to post the Boma installment - it is kind of lengthy.

WE typically always eat at the CS in Mexico. When DD was younger it was very easy to share. Wh DH and I have our alone trip in May I will have to try the schoolbread--it sounds very yummy! I did not care to much for Boma--but it was an off night for me. It was the first meal that I put together for our big family trip a couple of years ago. Out 10 hour drive turned into 12.5 hours and 2 hours we were in the same spot. Not fun. We were very rushed to get there. I may try it again someday. It was DH fav. place.

Hope your hip is feeling better.
Thanks for the well wishes. It is a little better tonight. Boma is great! I am about to post that review now!

You should definitely give Boma another chance! School bread is fabulous, check out the picture Melinda posted.

Day Four cont. - Boma at the AKL

After Epcot we decided to go back a little early to rest and DH and kids went swimming. Then we dressed and headed to Boma. I was so excited about the AKL, hoping to stay there on our next trip. This is me and the kids in the lobby. If you have not visited this resort, you should. It is beautiful.



We had a really cute server, Kea, ("pronounced "Kia", like the car") who was very friendly. My DS fell in love immediately and flirted outrageously!



This is my DS’s African meal – he is such an adventurous eater! For some reason this meal looks familiar????



The buffet is huge! Where to start! I ended up getting a bowl of crab soup first. Wow – amazing. My favorite dish of the night – I ate 2 bowls. AKL sent me the recipe for this one, not sure I will be making it anytime soon. It was rich, creamy, slightly sweet, and a little spicy. Delicious.



Then I tried the Butternut Squash Soup – nope, not my cup of tea. Tasted like pumpkin pie soup – I hate pumpkin pie. So if you like that type of thing then you might like this. Then I got a plate of salad. Starting with the green salad on the right and working around clockwise. On the right is Quinua (sp.) Salad – Spicy horseradish flavor. Decent. I liked it, kind of had a kick to it.
Watermelon Rind salad – yuck (ginger and grenadine) This was horrible! Bitter.
Kool Salaii (sp.) – Cole Slaw –ok, tasted like pretty normal cole slaw.
Pasta Salad – Sweet, very good – bell pepper and onion. Great sauce.
Calamari Salad – kind of spicy – excellent. It was the best salad.
Fried Plantain Corn Salad (I think) – Odd, sweet and vinegar flavor.
Grapefruit and Avocado Salad – (pictured in the middle) Good. Also had a sweet taste.



Coconut curried seafood chowder – next to the crab soup, this was my other favorite soup. Had a creamy, sweet taste with lots of shrimp. It had mussels in it too (which almost prevented me from trying it), but I never tasted the mussels. I received this recipe too – lots of ingredients.



On my next plate, I tried some of the meats and vegetables.
Boboti – (pictured at the top)Meat pie. Sweet and rich. Pretty good. Kind of heavy with unusual spices. One serving was enough.
Flank Steak – (laying on top of Boboti)Kind of tough, chewy, spicy – different spices. Ok
Potatoes with Afritude – (to the left of Boboti) These were like spicy roasted potatoes – good.
Raisin Rice – (bottom of plate) yellow rice with white raisins – this was okay.
BBQ salmon – (tiny serving below prime rib) don’t like salmon, but this was good.
Prime Rib – excellent. Next to the prime rib are the different sauces. I liked all of them.



Next plate ( I tried it all so I could take good notes and share it with all of you): Starting at top and working around clockwise.
Salad with Apple Vinagrette – good, dressing was very sweet.
Cous Cous – tasted a lot like Rice a roni, not so good.
Pap and Sheeba (sp,) – Sweet grits with tomato like sauce? No, didn’t care for this.
Fou Fou (sp.) – Sweet and White potatoes. Mostly sweet – not good, don’t like sweet potatoes unless they are fried or with pecans.
Roasted Veggies – alright, some unique seasonings.
African Fruit Salad – Good, with a creamy sauce.
Potato salad – This was really good, if I had not been so full, I would have gotten more.



Dessert plate: Start at top and work around clockwise.
Chocolate Mousee – alcohol punch to it. Sweet, rich chocolate. Fave!
Fruit – was fruit
Peach Crumble – Crunchy – This was alright.
Chocolate Chip Cookie – good
Banana Bread Pudding with vanilla sauce – good but not Ohana, white sauce was sweet and creamy.
Flourless Choc. cake – (middle of plate) ok, kind of a bland chocolate cake.
Banana Canoli – (next to the cake) I did not like this. The liqueur was too strong.
Fruit tart – Great, liked this and the mousse the best.
Zebra Dome – pretty good. I didn’t get all the rave reviews about this. You could definitely taste the liqueur. They used a liqueur in many of their desserts! Maybe that is why we all felt so happy eating here!
Rice pudding with chai or something – (tiny thing next to zebra dome) gross, just gross.



Here is a pic of how they serve everything. This is one of the salad sections.



This is just a shot of the inside of Boma



Boma was one of my favorite restaurants. I loved the variety. There really is something for everyone. The coffee was also great. The desserts were a little lacking IMO. But I was so full by then it did not matter. The service was also very good. We will eat here again. A
Tomorrow: Pizzafari in AK and Le Cellier in Canada.

Thanks for the great detailed Boma review. Even with all the great reviews, I had my reservations about this one....not for me......for the family. I noticed your son had chicken tenders, fries, mac & cheese again. Would you recommend this for a family of picky eaters and one adventurous mom?

Hope you are feeling better today.

Hey Melinda! Yes, I would. My DH is a meat and potatoes guy and you saw my DS's plate. There is a lot of ordinary food. Salad, soups (like 5 kinds), prime rib, potatoes, desserts. Nobody left hungry. I could've made a meal off the crab soup (which my DH also loved), salads, and prime rib. It also gives you the chance to checkout AKL. I highly recommend this one.
