Jiko really was special - we had some other amazing meal experiences - but Jiko did come out on top. There are so many great restaurants - it's hard to choose between them!

I can't remember what they were - the one in the middle was plain houmous I think - and therefore not spicy. The red and the green one were very spicy but absolutely delicious. The green one may have had coriander in?

Thanks Lisa! I worry I don't put enough detail in - I can't always remember the ingredients of each dish - I just want to give an overall impression of the food.

Jiko would make a lovely romantic meal (although our teenagers also enjoyed it!) it's so peaceful and calm - compared with the Boma area next door!

I heartily recommend Jiko - it's just so nice to try different food than you would eat back home. There are some non- spicy dishes - just ask your server for advice. Lucius warned me that the shrimp curry was spicy - I ask him how spicy - just mouth warming, or blow the roof of your mouth off? He told me I would be able to cope with it - and I did.

I want to thank you for turning me into a cocktail maniac! There are so many nice ones at WDW and I think I barely scratched the surface!

We had almost exactly the same experience at 'Ohana. As a result, we'll never go back. There are just too many Disney restaurants we enjoy to risk having to endure that again.

Ugh, sorry you got Rita at Narcoossee's. She is one of the main reasons we won't be back. On the bright side... you didn't get Eduarto at Jiko!!

It's a shame because we had a great time in 2008 - you win some, you lose some!

Saturday 21st August

We were back at the Magic Kingdom today and we ended up at our fave counter service place - Columbia Harbor House!

We'd split up and chosen to meet here. Sarah and I arrived first. Sarah had her usual tuna sandwich:



While I decided to try the fish basket:



The fish was very nice - a very generous portion and crispy pieces. I think I still preferred the shrimp basket though.

Simon and Kate showed up a bit later - I think they both had chicken nugget meals but I didn't take photos.

Later on, Simon and I both had a coke float from Aloha isle - yummy!



Dinner that evening was at Whispering Canyon Cafe. We caught the boat over to Wilderness Lodge. We waited for a while in the beautiful lobby, just watching the world go by. Pretty soon we were called through to our table:



Our server was good fun -although she tended to disappear for long periods - she was dealing with several other large groups.

We had the canyon skillet - lots of food - but the shrimp has been replaced!
We all had lovely milkshakes:



The restaurant was full of rowdy fun as usual - but I think we were all a bit tired this evening to enjoy it fully. We got our dessert to go and came back to our villa to chill out a bit. I did enjoy eating my yummy smores cheesecake!

The cost without the DDP would have been $210.00

We paid $34.00 for the tip!

Crumble rating: 6 out of 10 - but mainly because we weren't in the mood!

Coming up: Starring Rolls and 50's Prime Time Cafe!

I'm really enjoying your reviews! Great pics and narrative! We're going to Yak and Yeti for dinner during our upcoming January trip and I'm definitely getting that steak and shrimp dish. I can't wait to go back!
