I'm enjoying reading your reviews. Your descriptions make me feel like I can almost taste the food.

Happy belated Honeymoon!

Wonderful pictures and descriptions, as usual! You picked some of my favorite things at Les Chefs - the escargot, sorbets, and crème brûlée. Via Napoli also looks fantastic.

And Ladurée macarons are awesome! I actually went to a Ladurée in Paris a few years ago, but we didn't order macarons. So it was only last year (when a Ladurée opened in Manhattan) that I finally got to try them. They're wonderful

I like seeing a review with items other than the pizza since that is what we always order! The candele really looks tasty.

I am still dreaming of that pizza, Tracy. It was just wow.

Thank you very much! I swear I am obsessed with food. I am blessed that my dad is an incredible cook and he has passed on his passion to me.

I wish there was a Laduree in Toronto. Although there are a wonderful handful of macarons bakeries in the city now. There is a Macaron day declared in Toronto that encourages a Macaron crawl/tour of the bakeries.

The Candele was tasty and so was the pizza. I kind of wish I had room for more pizza as well. XD

Anandapur Yak & Yeti Lunch Review




Dim Sum (app)

I was really looking forward to eating here since it will be my only Chinese food fix. Choosing the Dim Sum app was a no brainer. Unfortunately, I think I may be too spoiled with eating too much quality Dim Sum in Toronto's Chinatown. I set the bar high and this appetizer didn't clear it. The Shu Mai was bland and firmer than I liked and the potstickers were dry. The Cha Siu Bao was okay. It seemed like steamed fish paste. However, the BBQ buns were delicious! Overall, it was a disappointing app.

Kobe Burger (entree)
DH loved this burger! He told me later it was the best burger he had on the trip.



Duck with Anandapur Glaze (Entree)

I love duck. I love its texture, its taste, and even its fattiness. My fondest memories of duck again involved visits to Chinatown. I would see them hung upside down in the BBQ restaurants with their crispy, golden skins glistening. When my order came in, the duck looked crispier than I hoped. After diving through the crispy skin, I found it disappointing that the flesh itself was very dry like turkey. It was overcooked.

Rating:




Fried Wontons (dessert)

Even though I had a disappointing app and entree, I had high hopes for this highly touted dessert. Brenda, this is dedicated to you! *Okay, so we already know the formula of frying + cheese = success. It has been proven! This was just amazing! The crispy wonton shell gave way to a warm, melty cream cheese center. The sweet sauce drizzled over the combination is unbeatable. This was just heavenly. I am determined to recreate this at home in the near future. I think I know what the sauce is made of.*

Rating:



Overall, Anandapur Yak & Yeti was a disappointment for me. DH loved his burger though and I fell in love with their famous signature dessert. Sadly, it still didn't save the rating of falling below average. The Red Queen didn't make an appearance because of the saving grace of those cheese wontons!

Before we went for lunch, we strolled into Animal Kingdom and ran into a big shower of pixie dust. A cast member spotted us, directed us to another cast member who offered us front row seats in the elephant section of The Festival of the Lion King!!!! It was the highlight of our honeymoon trip. DH and I felt so honored and just awestruck. Yes, I took a ton of pics. This is just a sample of them:








Me with Chip and Dale! XD

Just got caught up on your reviews, Rosey! Your pictures are absolutely gorgeous...they seem like they are in 3D and I don't even have to put on the funny looking glasses!

I'm sorry your Y&Y food was disappointing. It's unfortunate that such beautifully photographed food can be such a let down.

Glad you loved the wontons at Yak & Yeti. I'm also not a huge fan of the rest of the food there, but those wontons were a unique and delicious dessert. And your photos from FotLK are so cool!

Sorry to hear you didn't like Yak and Yeti. I have never had the entrees you ordered and am glad I haven't after reading your reviews. I will stick to my beloved seafood curry there I agree the dessert is super there.

The seafood curry does sound really good. I'm sure I'll be back at Y&Y one day for those wontons, and I'll definitely have to stick with your entree recommendation!

My first Y&Y experience was with a very disappointing honey chicken. I stayed away for a few years and went back this past May. Vettegirl is right; the seafood curry is outstanding! I'm so sorry you were disappointed but I know the feeling!

Sorry Yak and Yeti didn't turn out as you had hoped. My son is dying to try the burger there and if he sees how yummy those shoestring fries look he will want to go eat there even more.
