Hi all

Long time lurker, first time poster of pictures! Very excited to share with everyone. I'll try to break this up into a few postings as it might get a little long. I'll include what resturaunt it was at, menu item description and mine or my boyfriends assessment of what it was! These are all from this past May (2011), it was a great trip because it was his first time my 8th so it was nice to share the World with him!

Only including table service meals here too, btw

Grand Floridian Cafe Breakfast

Ham and Cheese Omelet - served with Breakfast Potatoes $10.49

My boyfriend ordered this. He enjoyed it, but really it's kinda hard to screw up eggs isn't it?

Maple Vanilla French Toast - Challah Bread dipped in Maple and Vanilla flavored Batter with Bacon or Sausage $10.99

Apparently not as easy to not screw up french toast. Bacon was so hard I thought I'd break a tooth on it and the french toast was gross. It seemed undercooked to the point where I was worried about if I'd be sick because of it. I think they must slice the bread and then just let it sit in the egg mix until someone orders it. It was soggy and the "maple vanilla" was nearly undetectable. Felt like I was eating bready raw eggs.

Service here was ok, but we will not return for breakfast again. Would try another meal here but definitely not breakfast.

Coral Reef Dinner

This will be the only other meal I put on this post as I want to make sure I'm doing things right. Coral Reef for dinner was fantastic! I'm glad I didn't listen to all the negative reviews I read because I really did enjoy my meal here as did my boyfriend.

Grilled Mahi Mahi - with laughing bird shrimp, heats of palm, jasmine rice and a coconut lime sauce $24.99

This was delicious. My boyfriend ordered it and liked it a lot. I don't like fish but I tried some and it's something I would order if we came back one day. Not too fishy and the lime sauce was lovely and light. Great after a day in the sun!

Lobster Ravioli - can't find a description of this for the life of me, but it's fairly self explanatory.

This wasn't much to look at, but was also delicious. The parmesan cheese added enough of a sharpness to counteract the creaminess of the sauce. I would absolutely order this again and recommend it to anyone who likes shellfish and pasta.

We also go the Chocolate Wave for dessert but forgot to take a photo. I think I'm the only person in the world to say this but.... I didn't like it. It just didn't do it for me.

Well I'll leave it here, but be back tonight to add more!

Thanks for looking!

Alright, round 2 for me

Artist Point Dinner

This is my absolute favourite restaurant so I'm a little biased in my reviews I think. We had a pretty crummy server this time, but I'm not here for the personality I'm here for the FOOD!! Haha

Smokey Portobello Soup - with Roasted Shiitakes and Chive Oil $9.00

This is my fave soup in the world. I often joke that it'll be served at my wedding, the birth of my first child and my funeral. If you like soups, this is definitely one you have to try.

Grilled Certified Hand-cut Prime Black Angus Beef Tenderloin - with marble potatoes, garden beans, pearl onions and green peppercorn butter $43.00

This is what my boyfriend had. I tried some and it was really good. We were unsure of the peppercorn butter as we don't like peppery foods but it was a really nice touch.

Char-grilled Buffalo Striploin Steak - with marble potatoes, garden vegetables, and Shiraz Gastrique $43.00

Ok I'm pretty sure that's the wrong description but it WAS buffalo. I believe it was a sirloin type cut and it came with a three-cheese macaroni. The buffalo was delicious, it was cooked medium rare but as you can see that's very pink. It was warm throughout though so it was cooked right just a redder meat I guess. It was very tender and really yummy. The macaroni was orichette pasta and actually kind of cold but didn't put me off the meal. I'd order this again for sure, buffalo isn't exactly something you can get at any restaurant in town!

Artist Point Cobbler - Seasonal berries and housemade ice cream $10

Their signature dessert. My boyfriend got this and really liked it. I've had it before and honestly I should have gotten it tonight too but thought I should try something different. I like how it's a berry ice cream instead of a vanilla like you'd get at most other restaurants.

Baked Peach Upside-Down Cake - with sweet and sour caramel sauce and roasted peach ice cream $10

This was good enough but nothing to write home about. It was more cakey and less peachy than I had hoped for. Not bad, but I should have gotten the cobbler that I know I love.

Kona Cafe Dinner

I came here with low expectations because I dislike Ohana and the Luau so much, but I was pleasantly surprised.

For starters we split
Pot Stickers - wok-seared duck dumplings with creamy ginger soy sauce $7.49

We both like pot stickers so it was a given that we'd order these. They were nice and not too heavy.

Then I had the
Teriyaki-style New York Strip - sirloin strip grilled with pineapple teriyaki glaze served with mashed Yukon gold potatoes and stir-fried broccolini $28.99

I really liked the pineapple on it. It was a big steak and there wasn't much fat on it at all. I know some people on here have had bad experiences with it being too fatty or grisly but the day I was there it was pretty close to "just right".

My boyfriend had the
Pomegranate Barbecued Pork Chop served on pan-roasted fingerling potatoes and applewood smoked bacon braised Swiss chard $21.99

This was really good too. The pomegranate was subtle but there and the sides with it were fantastic.

The main reason we went here was because I wanted to try their desserts. I had been craving this since I saw the menu:

Chocolate Fondue $6.99

Umm, yes please! Something so good it doesn't need an explanation?!? Sign me up! It was really good, the fruit was fresh, chocolate was the perfect temperature and macaroons were good enough I wanted to shove some in my purse for later.

A Sweet Ending to Your Celebration... White Chocolate Cheesecake - Cheesecake with a hint of white chocolate, strawberry coulis, and whipped cream $5.49

My boyfriend wasn't overly impressed with this. It's cheesecake, really can't screw it up. He was kind of hoping for the cheesecake of the Gods but I think I've talked up Disney food too much before we went away, haha!

Ok one more for tonight

Yak and Yeti Dinner

No idea why I booked here. I ate here my last trip and liked it though so maybe that's why? It's a decent place to have a sit down meal at AK though so I can't complain.

To start we got the dim sum basket which was really good but we failed to get pictures of it, sorry!

I ordered
Maple Tamarind Chicken - Seared chicken breast, Indonesian tamarind glaze, coconut ginger rice, baby bok choy, shiitake mushroom stir fry. $19.99

This was pretty good. The glaze was a little, something. Not sure how to describe it, maybe wing-saucy? The sides were great though and the chicken WAS good, just.... different. But who doesn't like different now and again right??

He ordered
Seared Miso Salmon - miso glazed Atlantic salmon, jasmine rice, baby bok choy and shiitake mushroom stir-fry $23.99

This was good as well. My boyfriend really liked it, and he's picky about his salmon since he travels to British Columbia and you can order your salmon fresh off the boat. I liked the miso glaze, probably would have gone well on my chicken!

For dessert I got
Fried Wontons - Skewers of fresh pineapple and cream cheese wontons, vanilla ice cream, honey vanilla drizzle $7.99

This was tasty! The cream cheese wontons were really good as a dessert. I've had them as an appetizer before and never thought to pair them with fruit and ice cream! The honey drizzle was lick-off-the-plate good.

He got
Mango Pie - shortbread cookie crust, fresh whipped cream, raspberry sauce $6.99

This was a huge serving of a delicious piece of pie. It was really refreshing and light. I'd come back here just for a slice of this and a chance to get out of the sun.

Hope you enjoyed, I'll be back tomorrow with the rest of my pics!

Alright this is the last of the food porn I have from this past trip. Enjoy!

Chefs De France Prix Fixe Lunch

This was a great deal but I must say I regret doing it. The food was really good, but since it was so hot outside it just didn't sit right. French food is very rich and this was no exception. I'll go back, and probably even order the same things again just wouldn't do it on such a hot day.

Our starters was soup which we didn't take pictures of. I got the lobster bisque which was very nice and my boyfriend got the french onion and he said it was one of the best french onion soups he's ever had.

For our mains I had

Gratin de Macaroni - Baked macaroni with cream and gruyere cheese

Absolutely delicious, but like I said rather heavy for the heat that we were experiencing that week. The portion was huge as well, would make for a good dinner.

He had
Quiche Lorraine - ham and cheese quiche

This was good. The salad lightened it up a bit which made it a little easier to stomach in the weather.

I'm really not one to complain about the weather I swear! But coming from a pretty crummy Canadian May where we hadn't seen sun for months to Florida during a pretty hot year was difficult to acclimate to.

For dessert we both got
Profiteroles au chocolat - Puff choux with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce

RIDICULOUS! I was expecting ping-pong ball size dessert and we got tennis ball or bigger! It was huge and delicious and I dare anyone not to want to drink the chocolate sauce on it.

50's Prime Time Cafe Dinner

Some of this is a little dirty because we took a bite before we remembered to take a picture, so here's your food porn censors warning, rated pg-13 lol

I ordered something I've had there before and really enjoy which is the
Mom's Old Fashioned Pot Roast - Slow cooked 'til fork tender, served with mashed potatoes, carrots, celery and onions $17.99

I really like this. The serving is big, but I wouldn't mind if it was a little bigger because it's so good. And since it's "fork tender" you don't have to waste time with a knife so you can just shovel it into your mouth.

My boyfriend had trouble deciding, which made the decision pretty easy to get
A Sampling of Mom's Favorite Recipes - Crispy-fried Chicken, Fork Tender Pot Roast, and Traditional Meatloaf with all the fixings $19.99

If you want to talk "bang for your buck" look no further. This is a TON of food, all delicious and generously portioned. The fried chicken was great and he really liked the meatloaf (which I do not eat).

He didn't have room for dessert, but we were on the dining plan so I FOUND room for
S'mores $4.79

Can't go wrong with smores right? Unless you want to eat them looking like a lady, then they're the wrong things to order. Difficult to eat, but really yummy.

Our last meal of the trip was at

Rose and Crown Pub Dinner

I will not go back here. The food was ok, but nothing I can't get at the pub around the corner at home. Actually, the food was cold, like it had been plated hours ago and sitting under a warming lamp - the top was warm but as you got past that the rest was cold. The one saving grace was our server was absolutely wonderful, the best we had all vacation. If I knew we'd have him again, I'd return but if not I'd sooner get fish and chips at the counter service place beside it.

Anyways, on with the show
I got
Sunday Roast - with Yorkshire Pudding, Roasted Potatoes, seasonal Vegetable, and Shallot Gravy $16.99

Like I said, it was cold. Also, somewhat leathery. Maybe we were just there on a bad day?

My boyfriend got
Bangers and Mash - Traditional English Sausages with Braised Cabbage and Bacon served with Mashed Potatoes and Shallot Gravy $15.99

He got this because our server recommended it. It was good, but somewhat cold. He'd order it again though, so I guess he's not as picky as I am about my meals temperature!

For dessert I got
Bakewell Tart $5.49

SO GOOD! Maybe one of my fave desserts all week. It's like cake, pie, tart all in one. Just the right amount of sweet for me, I wish I could get them at home. If anyone has a recipe for this please PM it to me!!

He got
No Sugar Added Fruit Trifle $5.49

I'm assuming it was good because he wouldn't share it! How cute is it though?!? This is the great thing with Disney, if you're diabetic or on a diet or can't have added sugar in your diet you don't get stuck with sugar free jello at every meal you can have great options everywhere you go.

Well that's it for this trip, thanks for looking! HOPEFULLY I'll be there again soon to eat more and share with you!

Sorry I'm late to the food thread parade- I've been through all of them and LOVE the pics! I thought that for my first entry, I'd share the very first pic that my wife took on her very first trip to Disney- her lunch! Seriously, we were on our honeymoon and were doing the Dining Plan back when you got an appetizer and two snacks per day. Talk about a lot of food! Anyways, our first meal was at Tusker House BEFORE it was redone as a buffet. I'm kinda sad as it was our favorite CS at Animal Kingdom.

Via Napoli


Room Service (Boma)
Kenyan Coffee Encrusted Steak w/ Broccolini, Potato-Parsnip Puree

Chilled Shrimp

Taste of Boma

don't recall the name. Lobster stuff with other seafood, w/red potatoes. Laura, our server recommended. DH ordered it.

I had a filet mignon with blue crab meat on top, béarnaise sauce, and asparagus. DH gave me 2 red potatoes as well, that mix GREAT with the béarnaise.

Kinda funny. The only steak I had the whole trip that they gave me a steak knife for..

'Ohana breakfast

Beef Tenderloin, Asparagus, Duchess potatoes ()

DH's Vegetarian Cassoulet

I've got a few to share!

Roast beef sub and onion rings from Beaches and Cream. The onion rings were huge! DH loved it.

Kids Mickey Sundae from Beaches and Cream. So cute!

Mixed Greens Salad from Cinderella's Royal Table.

Roasted beef Tenderloin from CRT.

Cheese Puff Pastry appetizer on the Children's Menu at Chefs de France. This tasted fine, but I thought it was a horrible choice for a children's menu! It was extremely flaky and crumbs went everywhere!

Croque Monsieur from Chefs de France. I thought this croque monsieur was better than the one I had in the real Paris earlier this summer.

Carrot Cake cookie from Writers Stop. I'm usually not a fan of vegetables in my dessert, but I had heard really great things about it and since this was my breakfast, I figured I'd give it a shot. It did not disappoint.

Iceberg salad from Liberty Inn, minus the blue cheese

Strawberry banana smoothie from Auntie Gravity's at Magic Kingdom. We found this was a really good value for a snack credit.

Oreo Bon Bon cupcake from Boardwalk Bakery. Soooo yummy!

May 2011 - Food Pictures

Here are a few of the good food pics from our most recent trip in May 2011.

Pizzafari - Pepperoni Pizza and Chocolate Mousse with Side Salad

Yak and Yeti - Crispy Honey Chicken

Pop Century - Half a Breakfast Bounty Platter, we share everything but espeacially breakfast, we arn't big eatters in the morning.

KRNR Station - Delicious Strawberry Banana Smoothie, this tasted even better cause it was free, being nice goes a long way especially when the CM behind the register is bored and it is your birthday.

Kona - Typical Birthday Dessert, but it is the thought that counts right? We got regular desserts too but we were so excited about the cupcake we forgot to take pictures.

Yak & Yeti - Animal Kingdom

Sweet & Sour Chicken, fried rice

Chicken lettuce cups. These aren't quite as good as P.F. Chang's, but still very tasty!

Side of Wok Fried Green Beans (not the appetizer - that plate is larger)

Everything was very tasty!

Here's a dessert that we didn't even order! My wife was wearing a Disney maternity top and was clearly showing- so our waitress at Le Cellier surprised us with this tasty treat when we finished our meal. Just one of the many reasons why we love Disney!
