Stephanie (HNT2419) sent me an update today which included a few more pictures from their lunch at Rainforest Cafe yesterday and their dinner at Riverside Mill last night. She had some issues with the WI-FI last night so was unable to send all her pics then. So I've added these additional photos to her Rainforest Cafe Update and her Riverside Mill Update.

Can I say again how much I love this thread?? I haven't been able to check the dining reviews very much for a few days and it's great to come back and see so many awesome live reports! It's great to click a few pages back and just go through all of the pictures all at once.

Can I also say that "amazeballs" is currently one of my favorite words!

I'm so happy to see some pictures of Akershus lunch.

I was thinking I'd prefer to do lunch there over the more popular breakfast but I could find many pictures or reviews so ditched it. Now it's back in the running!

'Ohana Welcome Bread - Pineapple-Coconut Bread






Mixed Greens with Honey-Lime dressing


Vicki said, "This was sooo good, it was the only thing we asked for seconds of."







Lo Mein Noodles & Broccoli


Vicki said, "Noodles were really good, broccoli was a little overcooked."







Pork fried dumplings & Honey Corriander chicken wings

Vicki said, "Both were yummy!"







Dipping Sauces - House Made Peanut Sauce, Chimichurri Sauce, and Pineapple Sweet and Sour Sauce


Vicki said, "The sweet and sour was our favorite."







Their table full of food



Vicki said, "I forgot to take a picture of the dessert, but for those wondering, it was amazing!"

Vicki and friends were at DHS today and had lunch at...



Mama Melrose's






Crispy Calamari topped with Grilled Peppers and Onions
Served with Dipping Sauces (marinara, pesto, and sweet and sour)








Oak-fired Mussels
Cooked in a spicy Tomato Butter with Grilled Onions and Herb Croutons



Vicki said, "I didn't think this was great. It had a strong spicy tomato flavoring that I didn't think complemented the mussels at all.
I wouldn't recommend this. The calamari was much better."








Oven-baked Chicken alla Parmigiana
Breaded Chicken Breast with Marinara Sauce, topped with Melted Mozzarella
and served over Spaghetti



Vicki said, "My friend liked this, but I preferred the one from Tony's."







Charred Strip Steak with Five-Cheese Baked Macaroni, Aged Balsamic-Shallot Butter, and Chianti Wine Reduction


Vicki said, "This was really good too, but it was ordered as well done and came out more medium."







Shrimp Campanelle
Shrimp and Campanelle Pasta tossed in a Four-Cheese Sauce with Broccoflower, Sun-dried Tomatoes, fresh Spinach



Vicki said, "Really good sauce and wonderful pasta and shrimp."







(Half-eaten) Dessert Platter


Vicki said, "The round ball in the back was amaretto flavored cheesecake. It was ok. In the middle was the tiramisu, this was the best of all. In the cup was custard with blueberry something on top. This was inedible. And the square in front was chocolate cannoli with a mandarin on top. This was just alright. These were probably the worst desserts so far this trip."

Paula & Hunter went to Jiko's Wine & Cheese Tasting this afternoon at Animal Kingdom.
And although Paula sent me a picture of Jiko's menu, they did not have dinner there.






Jiko's Dinner Menu - Oct. 24, 2012



Instead Paula and Hunter went to the Grand Floridian to have dinner again at...



Citricos



However, Paula only sent this one picture from their dinner there...

All three of Jiko's flatbreads are new since August...and they all sound fantastic! Between the flatbreads and the braai-style wahoo/pork belly app, I know which signature I'd want to have dinner at tonight.

It's recruitment time again!!!

First I would like to thank all of you who volunteered last week after my plea for help.

Although we now have good coverage for the next 3 weeks, from now through Nov. 12 (except for the last few days of October, when we could use one more reporter), we still need more people to do live updates for the remainder of the month of November. However, if your trip does fall in the next three weeks and you want to get in on the live food porn fun then I would not turn down your offer...'cause there is always room for one more. And I'm also still recruiting for the entire month of December.

So anyway, if you are going to Disney World in November or December, please consider joining our Live Reporting Team! Hopefully it would be both easy and fun, as all you have to do is snap a few pics with your cell phone and either text or email them to me at your convenience. Or I've also had reporters take pics with their regular cameras and email them to me whenever they have some downtime back at their resorts. So whatever works best for you, works fine for me! And of course, there are no rules regarding your updates. They can be a single picture and short description or full dining reviews of your meals. You can send frequent updates throughout the day, save them up and send several when you have the time, or just send a few periodically during your trip whenever the mood strikes you! Whatever you send our way would be greatly appreciated!
:deep breath: I'd like to volunteer for December 9 - 15, if you don't mind a total newbie (both to the boards and to dining reports). I've lurked around the boards since July, only very occasionally posting. Maybe this will finally break me out of my shell

Hi Rarity! Thanks so much for coming forth and volunteering to do updates. I'll add you to the December trip list in Post #2 right away. Then I plan to send out a PM to all the live reporters going in December probably in late November. This will have all my necessary info to send updates. Thanks again!

Can I just say once again that I greatly appreciate all of Barb's hard work in this thread? I really can't imagine how she deals with her phone buzzing all day long with photos of Disney food! But it is SO fun to share pics with her and have her be part of the experience, and then reading everyone's updates here keeps us all so informed! Barb you're simply amazing!
