I love fish tacos but they have to have corn tortillas and REAL guacamole, or avocado. The avocado gelato looks odd. Was it frozen?

Yes, it was kind of like soft serve. I didn't put it on the taco.

I am once again sorry for the delay. It has been another one of those weeks that has just gotten away from me. And tomorrow we are off to Boston to hopefully see the Sox clinch the division. Really looking forward to the weekend away!

Anyway, next up is lunch from my favorite place to eat lunch on Disney property 





We have always had wonderful meals here and it is definitely a must do. I had thought we were going to try dinner this trip but in the end I changed back to lunch!

We both had our usual iced teas



And we were boring and both had the Scotch Egg - Golden-fried Hard-boiled Egg wrapped in Sausage Meat with Mustard Sauce $9.49



This is one of my favorite plates in Disney. It seems so decadent and something to only enjoy on vacation! I could eat the mustard sauce with a spoon!

Andrew chose the same thing he had last year  the English Breakfast Burger - Angus beef patty with applewood smoked bacon, cheddar, fried egg and house-made HP sauce $13.99



This is a truly delicious burger. Whoever thought of putting a fried egg on a burger is genius. We often make our burgers this way at home. The best part of Andrew ordering this is that I got to steal the fried pickle 



It was perfectly crispy, not greasy at all. Delicious!

For my entrée I chose the Bangers and Mash - traditional English sausages, with braised cabbage and bacon, mashed potatoes and shallot gravy $14.99



I didnt get this last year and have missed it ever since. Another of my favorite plates of Disney food. We dont have any place close to us that serves british food so this is really the only place I have it. It did not disappoint.

Even though we were pretty full, we had to have dessert 



Sticky Toffee Pudding for Andrew



Roasted Peach Cheesecake for me 



I was a bit disappointed in the cheesecake. It was still a bit frozen in the middle and the peaches were must meh. But I was full so I didnt plan to eat more than a few bites anyway.

And here we are 



Edited to add the receipt:

Argh! I'm so disappointed that I cancelled our R&C meal there this time. I'm a bit hesitant but still curious as to those Scotch eggs. I suppose I just need to jump in and try them!

What I really want to try is that toffee pudding that Andrew ordered. That IS on my radar.

Your cheesecake looks like something I ordered this last trip which was not good at all.

Glad you got to go back to one of your favorites.

Oh, an Go Sox! Enjoy your weekend ball game.

Yes. You need to try it! Too bad we can't fit it in in December even if it was just for apps and dessert! The sticky toffee pudding is wonderful and I regret not getting it!

I LOVE RC. It was the first restaurant that we went to on ever 1st Disney trip. It continues to be a favorite! I, too, switch my ressie's from dinner to lunch just to get the bangers and mash!

All caught up! Great report so far! I swore I wasn't going to eat in any Epcot restaurants on my upcoming trip since there is so much at F&W I want to try, but now that I know they still have the burger with the fried pickle at R&C you may have swayed me into a visit. DH had that burger last trip and I need to try the fried pickle for myself.

That's awesome that your son is into English football. I'm a Liverpool fan myself, but I won't hold that against him.

Yeah, I admit when in Disney I have never eaten at the American Pavillion or the McD's (when they had them)

See, I haven't actually tried dinner. I keep saying I am going to and then switch back to lunch. Someday ...

That burger is just amazing. If I didn't love the bangers & mash so much I would have gotten that!

I won't tell Andrew that your a Liverpool fan -- can't promise that he wouldn't hold it against you!

Hi Vicki! Just wanted to check in and say I'm still here. Rose & Crown looks good - we haven't been there in years, but I like the sound of the salmon.

So sorry about falling behind - will have to get fully caught up later.

Some time thru the course of the day we tried something we had actually not yet tried





I am not sure how we have not had this crunchy, buttery, sweet goodness before!

Dinner was another change, from Narcoossees to









Of course we had our usual iced tea – loved the accompaniments. If we drank sweet tea I am sure we would love the simple syrup.



And the onion rolls with the roasted garlic –



I can’t add much more to what everyone says about these. I could make a meal out of them.

Andrew decided to have a side as his appetizer – Truffle mac and cheese - Orecchiette Pasta and Reypenaer - $9.00

I

This is truly delicious macaroni and cheese. Creamy, flavorful, pasta still had a bite. Very good.

I decided to have the cheese plate –





This was a really nice cheese plate. The last cheese is described as starting mild, then sweet, then smokey before finishing salty and it did exactly that. All of those tastes/flavors ran right across the tongue. It was really tasty.

I also had a wine flight –





Perfect accompaniment at a steakhouse!

For his entrée, Andrew had the Beef Hanger Steak - Herb Butter, Truffle Frites, Aioli, Garden Greens - $38.00



I was not given a bite but he absolutely loved it. Said the steak was very tender and flavorful. And the truffle fries crispy and salty. He loved this meal.

My choice was the Yachtsman Filet Mignon - 8-oz Filet served with mashed potatoes and a Cabernet wine sauce. - $42.00 but I subbed a twice baked potato for the mashed



I was a bit disappointed in my steak. I ordered it medium and it was a bit more rare than I like but the steak was still oddly tough. Flavor was Ok but it didn’t seem like a filet to me. The potato was actually the best part of the meal. Just delicious. Creamy, buttery. I am so glad I swapped.
We were stuffed so no dessert for us –



All in all a good meal. This is up there with a favorite for us. My only complaint is that the restaurant was loud. Very loud. I think the loudest of any signature that we have ever eaten at. Since it was Andrew and I we were fine but it would not make for a romantic meal. I am looking forward to returning here in December to see if the filet redeems itself!

I agree on the dinner menu change. I am just happy they kept the bangers & mash on the lunch menu!

No reason to be sorry! I am behind on getting this done so I more than understand! Hopefully to be able to post more regularly the rest of this week!
