Bread Pudding, Pineapple Pancakes, and Fried Cheese A Dining Review with Pics!

Hi Yall!! I'm back again with my dining review for the fall! I'm no writer so I will let the pictures do the talking


I will be reviewing the following:

Raglan Road (dinner)
Yak and Yeti (lunch)
Ohana (dinner)
Hollywood Brown Derby (lunch/fantasmic package)
Kona (breakfast)
Liberty Tree Tavern (lunch)


And.........were off..........


Raglan Road (dinner):

The restaurant is just amazing. All the dark woods with the stain glass ceiling really make this restaurant.

We started with the Irish Soda Bread. It was served with a oil/beer brown sugar reduction. It was very heavy like pound cake. My husband loved it. Me not so much.


We then ordered 2 apps. The first one was a grilled chicken dish. I was really dry to us. We didn't eat much of it.


We also got the Daulky Duo. Pretty good. Fried sausages with mustard sauce how can you go wrong.


I ordered the Serious Steak. It was served on a bed of mashed potatoes. The steak was tender and juicy. The potatoes were good but very thick.


My husband ordered the Mixed Grill. He liked everything but the black pudding. It was a strange looking meat?? It had a strong taste of cloves. Everything else was great including the mashed potates (also thick)


Saving the best for last.........The Bread Pudding. Now I have never had bread pudding but let me tell ya this is yumO!! The homemade butterscotch was to die for!!! A must try!


All in all this dinner was great. A must try!

Later I will move on to Yak and Yeti (lunch)

On to the next. We headed over to AK for the day. We started the day with our usual Tusker House Breakfast with Donald. Of course it was great. A great buffet with lots to choose from. The character are awesome! I enjoy this breakfast because it gets us in the park super early

For lunch I made a last minute ressie to Yak and Yeti. I was super impressed. We started off with Pork Egg Rolls, Lettuce Cups, and Pot Stickers. YUM! I ate so much of the apps there was little room for my main dish. I LOVED the lettuce cups the most. So refreshing after a hot day in the park. Take a look.




My husband ordered the Lo Mein with Chicken and Shrimp. His plate was piled high! I couldn't believe how much food was served for lunch.

I got the Honey Chicken. I think I ate only 2 to 3 pieces of chicken. Again I filled up on the lettuce cups. They honey chicken was ok but it was like any other take out chinese place.

I will for sure without a doubt visit Yak and Yeti again. BUT!!!! Will stick to the apps since I loved them so much

Up next........OHANA for Dinner

I have seen about 4-5 reviews of Yak and Yeti in the last few days and all of the pictures have looked so good! I am having such a hard time not adding in to the list of places to try, but I promised DH we would have a non-planned trip this time

Was it pretty busy? Wondering if I can try a walk up on the day we are in animal kingdom.

Ohana Ohana Ohana How I love thee!

I have been wanting to eat at Ohana for 2 years now. Last year we had to skip it because my mom is a super picky eater. Finally I got my wish and boy was it worth waiting on.
First we started off with the salad. Super great dressing. Here's where I made my mistake. I ate 2 helpings of salad!!

Then came the dips for the meat. For the life of me I can't remember what they are. One was some sort of peanut sauce. The rest.....????

Next the bowl of veggies came followed by the oh so great noodles. Again a mistake by me. I couldn't stop myself with the noodles!

Sticky Wings and Pot Stickers were next on the menu. I ate one wing and it was ok. The pot stickers were just like the ones at Yak and Yeti. By this point I was waiting on the main course.

Our waiter brought out steak and chicken first. The steak was super tender and awesome! The chicken was ok slightly dry.Sorry it's a little blurry.
Then came the shrimp.The waiter put about a dozen shrimp on my plate. I never asked for that much but I guess he thought I needed it. They were too good! We were never offered the pork. We waited and even saw other tables being served the pork but it never made it to us. Oh well.....the shrimp was enough for me. Mmmmm

Since we ate soooo much I asked the waiter to only bring a small portion of the bread pudding and only one serving. I was so stuffed by this point!!
He brought out our one serving but it was far from small!!! This bread pudding with banana's foster topping was the bomb!!! Super GREAT! My husband it not a dessert eater but he LOVED this one. Out of 3 of us we could not finish it.

We will be visiting Ohana again!!!

There was no waiting in the front but the tables were all full. We were there before our ressie and they seated us early. I loved it! It is worth the try for a walk up.

The next day we had a quick service breakfast at the Pepper Market (CSR). Nothing special to report same breakfast as another other.

We had a Fantasmic Package booked at The Hollywood Brown Derby. I was super excited about eating here. I had heard really good things. My husband started with the Cobb Salad and just did not like it at all. I gave it a try and thought is was kinda full of water. Almost like they didn't let the lettuce dry enough?? Other than that it was ok. I dont' think I would order it again. PS it is enough for two.



I ordered the Crabcake. It was really good. Since my husband didn't like his salad I traded him. He wasn't impressed with it either. (He was in a bad mood) The crabcake had a potato crust and was so crunchy on the outside. The portion was just right.



For my entree I ordered the Roasted Chicken Half. It was super tender and moist. The rice was great also.



My husband ordered the Pork Chops (no pic). He said they were dry and tough...again he was not in a good mood. So much we skipped dessert.

We ate late due to the show package so we had a quick service meal later. We ended up at the ABC Commissary. I was really worried about eating here because of all the bad reviews I read. To my suprise it wasn't too bad. We all had burgers and fries.

On to MK!!!!

We had a 7:45am ressie for Kona for breakfast. I couldn't wait to eat here again. We ate at Kona last year for dinner and it was one of our favs.

I ordered the Macadamia Pineapple Pancakes. Oh my goodness I was in breakfast heaven! These are by far the best pancakes I have ever had. The waiter said they use heavy cream in them and that is what makes them so good.



Hubby ordered the Big Kahuna. It was a sampling of eggs, potatoes, french toast, pancakes, ham, bacon and sausage.



My son but the pancakes shaped like MICKEY with a side of fruit.



I will forever be eating at Kona while at Disney. It never disappoints!
