    And another update from superchime, this one from their dinner on Saturday night at...


    [​IMG]



    She said, "We were in the area, so we headed to Sanaa. I love this restaurant and we eat here every time we visit."

    First an interior pic...

    [​IMG]




    Here is what they chose...



    [​IMG]


    "We started with the bread service and chose cucumber raita, mango chutney, coconut chutney, tamarind chutney, and spicy jalapeno pickle. The coconut was a little spicy, the jalapeno pickle was HOT but great. Everyone loved the breads and the kids liked the cucumber raita and the tamarind chutney."




    "Then on to the salads!..."



    [​IMG]


    "Top to bottom we had Roasted beets, Watermelon, cucumber & fennel, and Bhel Puri."

    Hah! Glad to know he's not the only one. He will only eat potatoes in French fry form. Mashed, baked, boiled, roasted are all out. Crazy kid.

    Now for a lunch and a snack update from tstidm1.


    Yesterday he was at DHS and had lunch at the Sunset Ranch Market's...


    [​IMG]



    Rosie's All-American Cafe



    First a menu pic...


    [​IMG]




    And he chose...


    [​IMG]



    "I got the Angus Cheeseburger. It was okay, but looked like it had been around a bit. Fries were cold. Ate less than half. Should've had lunch at Animal Kingdom."





    Then he said, "I got hungry after a couple hours at Animal Kingdom, so I grabbed a snack at the stand next to Yak and Yeti."



    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]



    "I had the two egg rolls for a snack. I had to wait a couple of minutes for them, but they were pretty good.
    They were hot and flavorful."

    They were at Epcot yesterday and had lunch at...



    Restaurant Marrakesh



    Here is what they had...



    [​IMG]


    "Their special bread was served hot. It was delicious." :)




    [​IMG]


    "Chicken kabobs with olive salad and sweet couscous with raisins."




    [​IMG]


    "Lemon chicken served with potatoes and preserved lemon."





    [​IMG]


    "Birthday baklava! They sang "Happy Birthday" to a little drum as well."



    Marakesh was a pleasant surprise! I would absolutely go back. Because it's so secluded, it was far from crowded and a very nice, peaceful lunch. The live entertainment (music and bellydancing once every hour) was very nice as well." :thumbsup2

    Next we have another update from tstidm1, this one from his dinner last night at...



    [​IMG]


    "After a couple of rounds on Star Tours and Muppetvision 3D at Hollywood Studios, I was getting hungry for good food and Kitschy trailers at SciFi Dine In theater."




    [​IMG]


    "The menu had changed since last summer, so I was interested in trying it out."




    [​IMG]

    The Reuben - Corned Beef, Sauerkraut, Swiss, and Thousand Island Dressing on Marble Rye Bread


    "I chose the Reuben from the menu because I wanted something different from the burger. That also drove me to have the seasonal vegetables instead of fries. Sandwich was very good and not so big like the New York version. The seasonal veggies were a couple different veggies and well done with light seasoning."





    [​IMG]


    "I had the chocolate shake for dessert. It was thick, creamy and rich. The perfect way to end my last dinner at Disney World."

    Be our Guest



    [​IMG]

    Mussels Provencal with white wine, tomato, garlic, onion, basil and butter


    "We almost cancelled this reservation. DH says thank goodness we didn't as the mussels are TDF!"





    [​IMG]

    Sauteed Shrimp and Scallops with seasonal vegetables served in puff pastry with a creamy lobster sauce


    "Perfectly, perfectly cooked scallops AND shrimp. Nice but unremarkable sauce and crispy pastry....delish!"





    [​IMG]

    Pork chop with pommes frites (subbed for the au gratin macaroni) and green beans


    "DH (the guy who wanted to cancel) rated this his 2nd favorite supper of the trip. Le Cellier bone in rib eye ranks #1.
    Seriously though, this food was so much better than expected."




    The dessert tray...



    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]


    "Hmm, thanks.... Sort of Oreo (?) mousse with chocolate dragees. But, really nice to have our anniversary remembered."
