Then Candice's second update was from today.


She said, "We just got to Disney's Boardwalk Inn this morning and headed straight to Epcot after we checked in.
We had a few dishes at F&W Festival for lunch."






From Hawaii: Kalua Pork Slider with Sweet and Sour Dole Pineapple Chutney and Spicy Mayonnaise


Candice said, "Very tasty! Hard to eat though."







From Hawaii: Tuna Poke with Seaweed Salad and Lotus Root Chips


Candice said, "Absolutely loved this and would go back again for this."







From Caribbean: Ropa Vieja (braised beef) with Cilantro Rice


Candice said, "Eric liked this but said the rice was a little hard. He loved the berry colada on the side in the picture."







From Mexico: Crispy Shrimp Taco with Chipotle Lime Mayo and Cabbage served on a Flour Tortilla


Candice said, "Tasty and fresh, didn't taste so much of the shrimp though."







From South Korea: Lettuce Wrap with Roast Pork and Kimchi Slaw


Candice said, "Liked this one as well."







From China: Pork Potstickers


Candice said, "This was just ok, nothing special for us."

Our first update of the day is from Ellen (podsnel) and it's an excellent one...filled with lots of delicious looking food!


Ellen's group dined last night at their resort's (Animal Kingdom Lodge) Signature restaurant...


JIKO



For a Scavenger Hunt point, here is a menu pic...












St. George Beer (from Ethiopia)


Note from jabead: While I wouldn't normally give a Scavenger Hunt for a beer or glass of wine, I am awarding a point for this one due to the interesting factor. It's from Ethiopia and the bottle looks cool!







Inguday Tibs in Brik - Mushroom, Spinach, and Cheese in crispy Tunisian Filo with Apples and Curry Vinaigrette







Grilled Wild Boar Tenderloin with Mealie Pap, Chakalaka, White Truffle Oil, and Micro Cilantro


Ellen said, "Both Pods and I had the wild boar...incredible! I have had this here before but with a different preparation.








Guinea Hen "Doro Wot" Braised Leg and Berbere Roasted Breast, Sweet Potato, Wilted Greens, and Ancho Glace


Ellen said, "Steven (DH's brother) had this and loved it!"







Maize-crusted Atlantic Black Grouper with Vegetables of the Moment and Tomato-Butter Sauce


Ellen said, "Pod's black grouper was incredible!







Chermoula-roasted Nigerian Prawns with English Pea Nage and Saffron Rice with Orange and Olive Salad


Ellen said, "I had the prawns...they were enormous! A ton of spice on them for my taste, but I thought the rice with the olives was fantastic."


I of course then had to ask Ellen if her prawn were headless or not?


Her reply, "With heads! I'm no wimp."



Only one dessert pic was sent...




As yet unidentified dessert


Ellen said, "Steven had this for dessert. Not sure what it was. I'll have to ask."


4 Scavenger Hunt Points Earned

We received one last update from Rachel (rachel09985) with these two well-known Epcot World Showcase frozen cocktails...





From France: Grey Goose Citron Lemonade Slush







From Mexico: Avocado Margarita



Rachel is now on her way home, so it's time to say...



Thanks Rachel for your updates!



Rachel plans to do a full Dining Report, so be on the lookout for it!

Ellen (podsnel) sent us a snack update this afternoon.


From the gift shop at Epcot's Mission Space...











Astronaut Ice Cream Sandwich







Astronaut Chocolate Ice Cream with Chocolate Chips



Note from jabead: I didn't realize that they sold food/snacks in the Mission Space gift shop. I guess I've never thought about looking for food imediately after riding Mission Space.



2 new snacks - 2 Scavenger Hunt Points

Freeze-dried ice cream! It's been years since I last had that stuff...but I don't miss it.

And I love the Jiko update! That doro wat dish looks fantastic - I've always enjoyed doro wat at Ethiopian restaurants, and the egg on top is a perfect, authentic touch. Even though we loved the peri peri chicken, it's nice to see that the new chicken dish still features authentic African influences. The only thing missing is some injera bread for scooping everything up.

MMM, I love freeze dried Ice Cream. I used to get it from the Air and Space museum in DC every visit.

Jiko looks so good. I can't wait to try it as my first signature ever in January.

DH and I, maybe with two friends, maybe not, will be at Wilderness Lodge Villas from January 11, 2013 through January 18, 2013. We still aren't sure of our dining plans yet. Alot depends on whether our friends go, whether we get an AP and how much money we have after the holidays.

We are for sure doing the following: O'Hana dinner, Fultons for lunch (love the fish tacos) and Il Mulino.

Will update more later, and hope to get down some plans. Looking forward to my first time taking photos. My other reviews have been photo-less. I am also looking forward to updating LIVE!!
