Part 8: Lunch – a mythical one?

Part 8: Lunch – a mythical one?

They seemed to be very busy in the restaurant and we had to wait for about 10 minutes for our table. The we were lead to our table which was really nice. The restaurant does look very spectacular inside:





This is one of the very few places where I took pictures of the food. Katharina had some fish tacos because the dish she originally wanted was out:



She wasn't too fond of them, but said that this was more her personal taste than that they were generally bad.

I opted for a spinach salad with blueberries and blue cheese with beef:



The beef was excellent, it tasted like two small filets. I was very impressed that I got such nice meat with my salad. The salad itself was lacking dressing for my taste. But then I am someone who likes rather more than less dressing on my salad. I never understood how people could eat a salad without any dressing – I feel I could then eat grass.

Overall it was an ok meal, not extraordinary, but decent quality and it was not expensive at all. Katharina's fish tacos were $12.50 and my salad was $11.25. Unfortunately our server was rather slow and while we often enjoy leisurely meals this time we didn't, I think also because at some point we were just getting rather cold from sitting inside the air-conditioned room. However, it gave us the chance for a nice break. If you compare table service and counter service prices at Universal, table service isn't that much more expensive and I am glad that we had planned for that lunch. However, I think next time I might want to try a different place (even though the menus are slightly similar at all the table service restaurants).

Next: More about IoA

I've been lurking and thoroughly enjoying your TR but haven't commented up to this point. I just had to say thanks for this review of Mythos! I'm on the fence about taking the time for a TS meal in the parks or saving our touring time and having a nice meal at Citywalk. Mythos is the reason I keep coming back to park dining because it just looks so cool. Your review has me leaning toward Citywalk though which actually makes so much more sense overall.

I've seen that. My Belgian brother (exchange student) made sure we saw it when we visited him way back in 1980.

I think you got our winter weather and we got yours this year. Some kind of weird mix-up.

Nice review of Mythos. Although, I expected more from them based on their website and what I've read about them. The theming looks spectacular though.

First of all: It is always great to hear from lurkers!!

The one thing which we really liked about Mythos was just the fact that getting a table service meal meant a real brake in the day. And I think we definitely needed that.

Also, over on the Universal board there is a thread with the restaurant menus. The one thing that I kept noticing was how the TS restaurants were only a little bit more expensive than CS.

We first had intended to have dinner somewhere at City Walk as well, but then changed dinner to Tchoup Chop (review will be coming!!). And that was just wonderful! I would highly recommend eating there.

Yes, I thought you might be familiar with this Belgian landmark. It is very famous!!

We do get cold spells, just not normally not as cold. I would say the temperatures we have at the moment are about 15 degrees (Fahrenheit) colder than what we usually have. Yesterday morning it was -4°F at 9 am when I walked to work.

Actually, here in Germany it is still ok, further East it is even colder. And the current temperatures are still something our houses are built for. Southern Europe is much worse off...

You are welcome! Might actually make a nice lunch spot for your group as well. As I said above, TS at Universal is not much more than CS.

However, I must say that I would still put it on par with our dining experience at the 50's Prime Time, just cheaper. Overall, I am glad that we did it because it was a nice break. Maybe it would have been better to eat lunch a bit earlier over at the Studios...

The theming is spectacular. I did not want to say that Mythos was bad. I think it is made up to sound like a signature restaurant, but that I found it wasn't. But as a casual dining restaurants, it was pleasant enough. And to be honest, most in theme park restaurants don't impress me.

This is the little guy that they dress up to right? He's sent outfits from all over the world.... We are considering Brussels as an entry point on our trip. I may have to inquire of other things to see there...

And it's really weird you are having such cold weather. Like Glenn said you're having our weather and we are having yours! Crazy! It's been so nice we've been able to even grill out we made pork chops last night and steak over the weekend. I have to admit though that it has been rather nice... considering the horrible winters we have had here in Wisconsin the last 3 years.

Brussels is quite beautiful - at least in parts. There is a fantastic old market square and a lot of the inner city is very pretty. And they do have shops selling the most delicious chocolates on every corner (they are not cheap but so so good!). Brussels is also known for delicious food and beer.

The European quarter is rather odd, they just tore down the old city and built all these modern buildings in that area and feels rather dead in a way. So I would keep away from there.

The weather is caused by a very strong high pressure area sitting over Siberia which now connected with another high pressure are above the Azores (some islands in the Atlantic, south-west of Portugal) which means a draft of cold air from Siberia can funnel through all of Europe. We do get this type of weather situation regularly in the summer and then it is very welcome because it means that the hot air from Russia (which does get hot in summer) can come to us. It blocks out all the wet warm (in summer cold) air from the Atlantic, therefore it is incredibly dry and mostly very sunny.

Maybe I should just have asked for more dressing - I guess that would have made me happier... Also I was so excited about blueberries in my salad, but they did not add as much flavour as I had expected them to...

I always ask for more dressing on the side when ordering a salad... My favorite salad to make at home is tossed mixed greens with strawberries, blueberries, mandrin oranges, chopped pecans, red onion, and grilled chicken, topped with either a light poppy seed, or raspberry vinigrete dressing (I find these at Aldi ). YUM!

I'm hungry for lunch now... and it's only breakfast!

I will for sure check out Brussels... My wheels are turning....

That's a good tip about ordering extra dressing. Maybe I will do that in the future!! Your favourite salad sounds delicious (well minus the red onions) but I can't imagine that Aldi here sells poppy seed dressing! Far too exotic!!

I am afraid that by the time you finally go on your trip you will have enough knowledge to fill ten trips to Europe!

Well then I guess I'll have to come back at least 10 times! I really am a super over planner. I need to have all the info and steps planned before leaving home.

Well if you don't get poppy seed dressing I'll have to send you some from Aldi..

That's a great idea to come back to Europe ten times!!

And I would be afraid of what would happen to the poppy seed dressing in the mail... But I might have a different (and more easy to mail) request. Will let you know via email!
