We stayed at AKL last year but never hit Boma. We are staying there again this year and after all the reviews it is on the list.

Loved your latest installment. I agree that Le Cellier was not crowded enough to bother me. With all the complaints about how crowded and noisy it was, I was surprised because I thought it was just fine. The food was very good and although the steaks were overcooked, we will definitely go again.

My biggest mistake......not ordering the PEI mussels. DH had them and they were the BEST!
One day I will get brave enough to order the mussels. I do not like mussels normally, but they get such rave reviews!

Just found this awesome thread! Would you be so kind as to post the Boma recipes?

We also tried Boma for the first time last Sept. I requested the recipe for the seafood chowder and never received it . Would it be possible for post the chowder and soup recipes? My pm box is full until I go and delete some stuff...yes, I'm a pm packrack. Sorry if you posted this earlier somewhere- if so, just direct me there! Thanks!

Here are the two recipes. Where do you get fish stock and clam juice? And how do you toast curry and cumin powder?

COCONUT CURRY SEAFOODBoma – Flavors of AfricaDisney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge


Yield: 8 servings

Ingredients

4 cups Fish Stock
2 cups Clam Juice
1 each Onion, diced in big chunks
1 each Red Bell Pepper, diced in big chunks
2 each Carrots, diced in big chunks
2 T. Curry Powder, toasted
2 T. Ground Cumin, toasted
3 cups Coconut Milk
2 cups Mussels
2 cups Shrimp
2 cups Scallops, sear
3 T. Curry Paste
3 T. Soy Sauce
3 T. Sugar
1 each Jalapeno, sliced
2 each Potatoes, diced in big chunks
¼ cup Parsley, chopped
¼ cup Cilantro, chopped
1 each Lemon, zest and sliced
To taste Salt and Pepper



Method of Preparation

1. Heat the fish stock and clam juice.

2. Add the vegetables (except jalapeno, parsley, cilantro, and lemon zest) and spices. Cook until the vegetables are half done.

3. Sauté seafood and deglaze with lemon juice and fish base. Add coconut milk, curry paste, soy sauce, sugar, and jalapeno.

5. Let simmer until mussels open. Add parsley, cilantro, and lemon zest before serving.


GOLD COAST SHE CRAB SOUPBoma – Flavors of AfricaDisney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge


Yield: 8 servings

Ingredients

2 cups Water
2 cups Clam Juice
4 tablespoons Chicken Bouillon Granules
2 tablespoons Fish Bouillon Granules
½ cup Heavy Cream
½ cup Milk
8 ounces Crab Meat
8 ounces Lump Crab Meat
½ cup Spanish Onions, small dice
1 teaspoon Thyme, diced
½ teaspoon Garlic, granulated
1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
¼ teaspoon Tabasco Sauce
¼ teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
1 cup Cape Indaba Sauvignon Blanc
½ stick Butter
2/3 cup Flour



Method of Preparation

1. Melt butter in sauce pan over medium heat. Whisk in flour until well blended to make a roux. Lower heat to simmer and stir roux occasionally. If too dry, add a little more butter until it is the consistency of peanut butter. Cook for two minutes to cook out the raw flour taste.

2. Add onions. Cook one minute.

3. Add all liquids, one at a time, then spices, seasonings, and herbs. Stir well, bring just to a boil and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.

4. Taste and adjust seasonings if desired. Finally add crab meat and stir gently so as not to break up the lump crab meat too much.

Day Five - Wednesday: Le Cellier cont.

Entrees

Alright, sorry about the interruption. Long wait between appetizers and entrees. Once again at this restaurant the food was served rather quickly. Today, it was a good thing though, we still had a lot we wanted to see.
DS ordered the kids steak and fries (he had grapes for his dessert). Let me just tell ya, DS was in a very bad, tired mood at this point. Some time before the entrees arrived, DH leans over the table and very loudly informs DS that if he does not adjust his attitude that he is going to take him to the bathroom and “beat” him! All the sudden the restaurant did seem quite small and everyone was within earshot of that announcement! We do not beat our kids, spank yes, but not beat. DD and I both wanted to crawl under the table. Anyway, DS’s meal came out, he ate a few bites and fell asleep – thankfully. We left him alone and took his dessert to go. Below is a pic of is meal and his much needed nap!






Le Cellier Mushroom Filet Mignon - Baby Bella wild mushroom risotto, white truffle and herb butter sauce, topped with fried parsnips – DD and I both ordered this med. rare. She ordered it with the cream cheese potatoes and I stuck with the risotto. After Kona, I knew that I liked risotto. This was such a great filet. Cooked perfectly!!! I just love their steaks and will probably book this place every time we go to WDW. The risotto was also good, but I think I liked Kona’s a little better. I don’t think I have ever had fried parsnips, but they were great with the risotto. Below are DD’s steak and mine.





Creamed Spinach Gratinee – I ordered this too (OOP) because it sounded so good. I can’t remember what kind of cheese was in this. It tasted like the cheddar soup cheese. This was the best creamed spinach I have ever eaten! And it was huge. Me and DMIL could not eat it all. I wonder if next time they would just let me order this for my appetizer. At the top you can also see the side of grilled asparagus that DMIL ordered. This was good…for asparagus.



7 oz. Filet Mignon - glazed with maple barbecue sauce and accompanied by cream cheese mashed potatoes – DMIL ordered this and changed the mashed potatoes to roasted potatoes. She really liked the sauce. I did not try it.



14 oz. New York Strip Steak - with sauteed leeks, frisee, and roasted Yukon gold potatoes, and finished with veal demi glace – DH and DFIL had this (you know bigger is better mentality). They both enjoyed it. I think the filet is much better! DH is not as impressed with this place as I am, but it is because he is not ordering the filet!



Desserts – I just love this part of the meal!
I was quite full by this point, but that has never stopped me before! So I ordered the Whiskey Chocolate Cake. It had this wonderful cream to pour over it! Rich and chocolatey – this was great! One of the best cakes of the week (and I ate a lot of chocolate cake). DD and I split this because the kids no longer get the Chocolate Moose on the DDP. So we used her credit to order DS’s moose. They boxed the moose up for DS and he ate it during illuminations. He said it was better last year. He threw away most of it. I hated that for him because he was really looking forward to this dessert. But it is still cute!





In-laws had the sorbet. I know one is raspberry, but I can’t remember what flavor the other one was. They both enjoyed their desserts. I am not a big sorbet fan. Give me the chocolate!



DH ordered the Crème Brulee. I believe one side is maple and one is vanilla. DH loves the Crème Brulee here. I did not get a taste of his, but it was good last year.



Whew!!! That was a big meal! But we loved it. Once again Le Cellier gets an A!!!

Next installment: Flatbread Grill and 50’s Prime Time Café at MGM

Stacey, Le Cellier looks delicious. When we were there my sister wanted to try this place but we didn't have enough time (and we didnt have ADRs) so we just let it go. I am sorry we didnt get to try a lot of the great restaurants that Disney has to offer. I am thinking that we need a do over trip. DH thinks that I have lost my mind. Next time we will do the dining plan and I already have a list of the places that I want to try, thanks to you.

I can absolutely relate to the story about your DS. We often have moments like you described.

I don't know if you already know about this, but if you go to allears.net they have recipes for a lot of the food served throughout Disney. I once tried to make Boma's recipie for Pineapple Upside down Cheesecake. It had a white chocolate crust.. YUMMY. (let me know if you need help finding the recipie section)

Ok now I'm hungry.. gotta go.. Melissa

Oh funnel cake, I love funnel cake and you can't get it any where over here, some of my snack credits will definately get funnel cake (do you think I like funnel cake )

Le Cellier is definately on my ADR list which I can book in just over 2 weeks My DD just came in and was drooling over the steak, I think it will be 14 days of steak for her, very healthy.

We had funnel cakes twice! Love them! And very low fat! My DD is the same way. Steak and salmon all week, she was in heaven!

Sounds like a plan to me! We could each make a Disney recipe to bring. Kind of like meal replacement! My house is available too. And we can share our Disney pics, because everybody here is tired of looking at mine.

Stacey--question about LeCelliar---did they charge the extra $2.00 for the DS steak even though you were on the dining plan?

No, I believe it was on the plan. The moose cake is not on the plan anymore. How did you like the cruise you took? Did you go in May when school let out? Were the parks crowded?

Ok, I don't get it. I can see every other food picture in this entire thread except the ones at Boma which is the one place that I was dying to see. It's a conspiracy! I want to see those pictures!!

I can still see all the Boma pics. That is weird because they are all uploaded from photobucket. Have you tried a different computer?
