Fig Goes Sig and Food & Wine

Continuing with Fig Goes Sig (and Food and Wine)

Boma (breakfast, 10/28/11)

Frunch - mixture of lemonade, pineapple juice, guava juice, orange juice, and papaya juice. Figment really likes Frunch!


A little bit of a lot of things - quinoa porridge (bowl on the right), fresh fruit (bowl on top), and ham, bacon, sausage and biscuit skillet, and bobotie (on the plate).


Another plate!

Tutto Italia (lunch, 10/28/11)
Entrees

Insalata della Casa con Pollo (chicken salad)


PLT Panino Sandwich (prosciutto, lettuce, and tomato sandwich) - Figment liked the prosciutto!


Lasagna al Forno

Desserts

Copetta Sotto Bosco - Figment liked this fancy ice cream sundae!


Sorbet (no sugar added raspberry) - It was pretty tart, but still yummy.

Jiko (dinner, 10/28/11)
Appetizers

Bread with cumin dusted butter


Taste of Africa - two spicy and two mild dips - the spicy ones were really hot, but the mild ones were kind of bland


Inguday Tibs - Figment liked the crunchy little pockets of veggies and cheese


Grilled Wild Boar Tenderloin - the meat reminded Figment of the buffalo at Artist Point; very lean

Entrees

Grilled Wild Gulf Shrimp Curry - Figment said it had a bite to it


Oak-Grilled Filet Mignon - the meat was well cooked, but Figment didn't really care for the South African Cabernet reduction sauce


Braised Beef Short Rib - the meat had good flavor and was very tender

Dessert

Creamy Madagascar Vanilla Cheesecake


Warm Peach Torte


One Last Cup - This was Figment's favorite item at Jiko. The "Tanzanian Chocolate and Kenya Coffee Mousse with cinnamon mascarpone" was really yummy!

Coming next time...Raglan Road and Citricos

Fig Goes Sig

Continuing with Fig Goes Sig (and Food & Wine)

Raglan Road (lunch, 10/29/11) - Figment really liked Raglan Road and would definitely go back!
Appetizers

Calamari City - Calamari is one of Figment's favorite appetizers, so he really enjoyed sampling all over the place in Disney World. Raglan Road's was very good!


Heaven on Earth - surprisingly sweet


Scallop Forest - Figment really liked the presentation (and flavor) of the scallops

Entrees

Fish & Chips - brought table side in an upright basket and then poured onto the dish


Pie in the Sky (chicken and leek pie)


Sod the Stew (beef stew) - Figment liked the stew so much he asked for the recipe (when we got home)!

Desserts

Dundon's Delight (raspberry pavlova) - kind of like a meringue; very light


Strawberry and apple crumble


Dunbrody Kiss - Figment could not wait to have a full-sized one after trying it at Kevin Dundon's Food & Wine seminar. It is soooo good!

Citricos (dinner, 10/29/11) - overall, Figment wasn't to sure what to make of Citricos. It looks pretty and the food was pretty good, but it was very slow and it almost seemed like the servers and kitchen weren't in sink (e.g., the appetizer plates were cleared and new silverware was put out and then it was another twenty minutes before the entrees appeared).
Appetizers

Arancini - Figment really likes risotto so he had high hopes for these. Sadly, the cheese flavor really over powered everything else (Figment likes arancini at Via Napoli much better)


Blue Crab Pave - Figment liked this "salad" - lots of crab meat and some capers, yum!


Sautéed Shrimp - the sauce was really good for bread dipping after the shrimp were gone

Entrees

Pan-Seared Red Snapper


Swordfish - the fish was very firm, but the pasta was kind of chewy. Figment had never had swordfish before, so he's glad he ordered it, but it's not something he'd order again


Braised Veal Shank - Figment had send the first one back because it was cold on the outside, but the second one had really good flavor and was hot.

Desserts

Tasting of Gelato


Seasonal Berry Gratin


Warm chocolate banana tart - Figment has to admit that he ordered this primarily because he wanted the chocolate "crown". The dessert itself was pretty good, but the crown was the best part!

Coming next time...Brown Derby and Flying Fish!

Continuing with Fig Goes Sig (and Food & Wine)

Brown Derby (lunch, 10/30/11) - Figment had a lot of fun trying to figure out the caricatures on the wall. He'd never been to the Brown Derby, so we decided to have a late lunch here and get the Fantasmic Dining package.
Appetizers

Bread and butter - more of the Hawaiian sea salt


Cobb Salad - Figment had to try the iconic Cobb salad! This is how it looked when it's brought to the table...


...And this is how it looks after it's tossed. It was pretty hard to tell what was what in the salad, except the avacados, after it was tossed. Figment liked the flavors, but wasn't to sure about the texture.


Lobster Bisque - it was okay, but Figment liked the one at Les Chefs better


Spring Rolls

Entree

Grilled Loch Duart Salmon


Duck Two Ways - Figment really likes duck and he liked this dish


Sterling Silver Pork Chop

Dessert

Warm seasonal Fruit Cobbler


Grapefruit Cake - Being another one of the Brown Derby's signature dishes, Figment had to try it. It had an interesting flavor; Figment still isn't sure if he liked it or not


Chocolate Three Ways - Chocolate!

Flying Fish - After watching Fantasmic, Figment and company headed over to Flying Fish
Appetizers

Crispy Maine Coast Jonah Crab Cake - Figment was very excited, two of his favorite apppetizers were on the menu: crab cakes and calamari. The crab cakes had a nice crispy outside and lots of crab on the inside


Calamari - Yum!


Shrimp Cocktai

Entree

Potato-wrapped Red Snapper - One of Flying Fish's signature dishes.


Potato-wrapped Red Snapper (Sauce on the side, spinich instead of leek fondue) - Figment tried this dish two ways: the traditional (previous picture) and with a few changes. He liked the fish and potato wrapping, but wasn't to fond of the sauce (he was glad it was on the side).


Oak-grilled Maine Diver Scallop - the scallops were really good and the risotto was really rich

Dessert

Caramelized Banana Napoleon


Spiced pear cake - looked really pretty, but this was probably Figment's least favorite dessert. The cake was pretty dense, but didn't have a lot of flavor (beside being bread-like).


On the Boardwalk - This was probably the most fun dessert Figment had. There was a popcorn mousse (surprisingly good), a cherry-limeade-cicle (very tart), mini-oreo-like cookie, and pound cake "fries"

Coming next time...Via Napoli and California Grill

La Cava in Epcot

I think this was a passion fruit margarita, I'll admit I cannot clearly remember.

Continuing with Fig Goes Sig (and Food & Wine)
Via Napoli (lunch, 10/31/11 - Happy Halloween!)
Appetizers

Fritto Misto (calamari, fried cheese, arancini, fried veggies) - so yummy! Figment really liked the calamari and the arancini. The cheese flavor wasn't as strong, so he liked the arancini better at Via Napoli than at Citricos. The portion on the platter could easily serve more than two.


Prosciutto e Melone - very similiar to the one Figment had at Tutto Italia, but it was a smaller portion. Still, Figment loves proscuitto, so this appetizers was rigth up his alley.

Entrees

Prosciutto e Melone - Figment liked the combination of proscuitto and melon on the pizza


Frutti de Mare - Figment really likes Via Napoli's sea food pasta!


Candele - Reminded Figment of lasgana, but with little candlestick pasta

Desserts

Coppa di Brutti Ma Buoni - Fancy ice cream sundae! Figment really liked this sundae, but the Amarena cherries were a little strong for him.


Gelato Frizzante - Figment wasn't to sure about this dessert. He liked the ice cream, but wasn't too fond of the soda. It was better when the ice cream melted into the soda, but he'd rather have the Coppa di Brutti Ma Buoni.

California Grill (dinner, 10/31/11)

Mickey confetti - Figment was very excited to find the table had Mickey confetti scattered on top of it! He carefully collected up all of the confetti, put it in a little baggie and brought it home!

Appetizers

Dungeness Crab Stack - Figment liked all of the crab meat!


California Roll - it was a traditional CA roll; good flavor, but nothing remarkable


Spicy Kazan Roll - Figment really liked the sushi, but the fireball sauce was HOT! He had to carefully scrape it off the sushi (luckily it was only in the middle of the plate and not actually inside the roll).

Entrees

Wild Pacific Salmon


Florida Snapper - Figment liked the snapper and risotto


Oak-fired Filet of Beef - the server recommended the filet, so Figment decided to try it. It was cooked perfectly and tasted great!

Desserts

Gianduja Mousse with Cocoa Nib Tuile - Chocolate...Yum!


S'Mores Valrhona Chocolate Cake - Figment liked the grown-up take on s'mores. The chocolate cake was really good!


Bananas and Caramel

We're coming near to the end of Fig Goes Sig, but next time...Snacks and then on to Food & Wine!

Fig Goes Sig and Food & Wine

Figment realized that he skipped a meal. So, before moving to snack...
Grand Floridian Cafe (dinner, 10/23/11) - Figment has only been the GFC once before and the service was very slow. This time the service was really slow and the server wasn't really very friendly. Perhaps he was spoiled by the service at many of the other places, but he was not impressed with the server (she seemed very abrupt and not really happy to be there - she kept pulling other servers aside for little "chats" so Figment wondered if something was up). Anyway, sadly GFC has fallen on the list of "only if there are no other nearby available TS places."
Appetizers

Shrimp Cocktail


Crab Cakes - the cakes were crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.

Entrees

Grand Floridian Burger - a hamburger with lobster on top. Figment found it really tough to bite through the lobster pieces, so it was better to eat them separately from the hamburger.


Grilled Pork Chop

Desserts

Seasonal Sorbet


Dessert Sampler (Tiramisù, Chocolate-Hazelnut Mousse Cake, Key Lime Tart, and Lemon Cheesecak) with a solid chocolate Mickey! Figment liked the dessert sampler, especially the tiramisu, mousse cake and key lime tart. The chocolate Mickey was very cute.

And now, on to snacks...

Cupcakes at Starring Rolls (DHS) - Chocolate Peanut Butter (left) and Butterfingers (right) - both were really rich and yummy!


Mickey Blueberry Muffin at Boardwalk Bakery


Caramel Corn from Karamel Kuche (Germany) - Figment loved this! He had a bag at the start of the trip and then brought four bags home with him!


White Elephant Cupcake at Kusafari Bakery (Animal Kingdom) - Figment thought the elephant was very cute. They didn't have them out when he got to the bakery, but he asked and they had them.

And finally, Figment's two favorite snacks...

Root Beer Float (left) and Pineapple Dole Whip Float (right) from Aloha Isles (Magic Kingdom) - Figment really loves the Dole Whip Float. Even if it meant chattering teeth, it was well worth it!

Coming next time...Food & Wine
