    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!

    Mixed Greens with Honey-Lime dressing


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





    [​IMG]

    Lo Mein Noodles & Broccoli


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





    [​IMG]

    Pork fried dumplings & Honey Corriander chicken wings

    Vicki said, "Both were yummy!"





    [​IMG]

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



    Mama Melrose's




    [​IMG]

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






    [​IMG]

    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."






    [​IMG]

    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."





    [​IMG]

    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."





    [​IMG]

    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."





    [​IMG]

    (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.

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

    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. :cloud9:
     
  8. Rarity

    Rarity I don't trust wheels.

    :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 :wave2:

    Hi Rarity! :wave2: 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! :goodvibes
     
  10. Rarity

    Rarity I don't trust wheels.

    Awesome! I look forward to serving my DISly duty. Even my sister, who will be my traveling companion, is excited about this.

    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! :lmao: 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! :worship:

    Aww....thanks so much, Becky. :blush: But much of the credit for this thread goes to the live reporters like you. I have been pleasantly surprised by all the people who have volunteered to do updates. You guys are awesome! :goodvibes

    As for me, I am truly enjoying this. I'm getting to know so many great DISers, like you Becky. Plus of course, I love never knowing what Disney food is going to pop up on my phone next. ;)
