I had that chicken flatbread a couple of times on our last trip. I really liked it. I wouldn't call it spicy but it definitely has a lot of flavor. I was getting ready to be sad that I didn't try the falafel but then reading your review, maybe not. I don't remember it being there but I have only recently discovered falafel so I might have not noticed it.

Can't wait for the chef's table review. And where is dh? Did I miss that he was meeting you later?

The flatbread looks really good! I also agree on the falafal. It should not be huge squares! I also tend to go more for tatziki sauce.. Some places use Tahini sauce which I don't care for.

So Friday morning I made an ADR at Boma for 9:30 figuring DS and I would have breakfast and then wait for DH in the lobby. I was going to be a good Diser and keep track of what time we checked in and how long we waited but I failed! I know we didn't wait long.

I was amazed at how crazy crowded Boma was! Oh my, it was chaos. Because of this, I did not take any pictures of the buffet.

My first plate ... bacon, sausage, a waffle, some goat cheese scrambled eggs, banana foster french toast and the cornbread/corned beef hash "thing" that I forget the name of!



Everything was just Ok for me. DS felt the same. Nothing stood out as being really great.

And my second plate



Pastries and fruit. I found the fruit too cold to enjoy. Had to wait for it to warm up a bit.

We both had the jungle juice, I had tea, DS had coffee. Total cost OOP was $40.45.

This day was our Boma, Sanaa and Jiko day. Remember when I said that we enjoyed 2 out of 3. Yep, this was our least favorite. And possibly DS and my's least favorite meal of the trip. I don't have one reason that I can point out. Yes, it was crowded and noisy but I expect that in Disney. It did seem that our waittress wanted to be any where but serving us. But again, if the food wow'd me that wouldn't ruin the meal. As much as I want to love Boma, I just don't.

So Boma gets a



from us.

Oops...I was totally wrong then on this one. Now I can't wait to hear about your lunch at Sanaa.

DS arrived, we hung out in the room watching the animals & catching up on stuff. Walked around the resort a bit and then headed over to Sanaa for lunch. We ate at Sanaa last year and all deemed it the worst meal of the trip for us. Not because the food was bad, but more likely because it is just not our favorite flavor palette. But with all the great reviews here, I knew we had to try it again.

Our server, Katie, insisted that she remembered me from last year although we all agreed that she was not our server. But she was very friendly and gave us a few special extras so all was Ok with us!

I started out with a mango lassi (mango puree with non fat yogurt). I had this last year as well. Very creamy and refreshing!



We all shared the Breads - Our choices were the Naan, Papadum and Paneer Paratha with Cucumber Raita, Garlic Pickle and Roasted Red Bell Pepper Hummus.



As with last year, we all really enjoyed this! The Naan was our favorite.

DH decided to have the fish of the day which was salmon with seasonal veggies in a light curry broth.



He really enjoyed this dish and ate every bite. At this point, DS and I were not being very adventurous and we didn't try it.

DS chose the Slowed Cooked in Gravy option with the short ribs, butter chicken and basmati rice.



Oh my! This was heaven on the plate! We asked for extra Naan so we could sop up every bit of the gravies. This was the first time any of us had tried butter chicken but hopefully it will not be the last. Chicken was super tender and the sauce left a very luxurious feeling on the tongue. And the short ribs were fall apart tender and not at all fatty.

I really wanted to try the tomato soup with paneer cheese



OOOOOOOOOOOOHHHH, I truly loved this soup! Rich and tomato-y with the melty cheese cubes. I am searching for a recipe as I would love to try to recreate it at home.

Katie also brought us two sample servings of what she said were new salads on the menu -

Watermelon, cucumber and fennel (sorry for the blur)



and Bhel Puri



Both were very tasty with the watermelon one being particfularly refreshing.

We were all stuffed but knew we had to have dessert. I really wanted to try the pina colada rooibos tea



This was just Ok. Didn't really taste of coconut or pineapple to me.

I asked about getting just the chai cream for dessert and was told that it is only part of the sampler. But that instead of the three desserts in the sampler, we could have three of the chai creams! OK!





Amazing, creamy goodness in a cup! Katie gave us the recipe, maybe I will give it a try at home one day!

Total cost for lunch still OOP was $85.63. And worth every penny. We loved this lunch! The atmosphere, service and food all get a



from us!

As a side note, we left Sanaa and went to see Art of Animation and then to DTD. After several hours, I realized that I had lost our gift card. I didn't remember putting it away at Sanaa. At that time, I think there was like $70 on it so not the end of the world but still. DS went back to Sanaa just in case and Katie saw him walk in and went to get the card. Very, very nice of her to put it aside and give it back to us!

Aww man! Wish you had a better dining experience. I agree that I can over-look spotty service if the food wowed! But at least you have your least favorite meal behind you and now on to better and brighter!

Oh, just saw your Sanaa pop up... I'll be back.

That's pretty much how I felt about Boma - like I was mousing something! Why did everyone else love it when I just thought it was ok?!

Sanaa keeps sounding better and better but we haven't tried it yet! That was great of your server to put aside your gc!

I REALLY want to try these!!! Especially the naan bread.

I have a silly question. What is chai cream? Is it like pudding?

Ohhh! I'm surprised that Boma was the least favorite as well!!

Sanna actually looks good! I've not looked into it because I always think it will be too spicy for me. Were any of the dishes spicy?

Yeah, I like and expect good service especially at WDW but I recognize everyone has a bad day. So the food will do a lot to make me forget the service.

Wow, someone else that doesn't love Boma! I feel so much better!

Yeah, she could have pocketed that gift card and no one would have known. I wasn't even sure I left it there.

It is very creamy, lighter than pudding. A bit thicker than whipped cream. It is really amazing. A very nice end to a meal!

No, not real spicy at all. I am sure lovers of true Indian food probably think it is too tame. Just a hint of spice, really. We enjoyed our meal so much we may even try our local Indian restaurant!
