    Alice & Snow were at Downtown Disney yesterday, where they had lunch at...

    First up are the menu pics...

    Bread Basket




    [​IMG]

    Fresh Mozzarella & Proscuitto - basil, balsamic vinegar, olive oil and cracked pepper




    [​IMG]

    Tomato Bruschetta - Goat cheese, pesto, basil, shaved parmesan


    Alice said, "I didn't like the mozzarella. Don't know why, I just didn't :(. Snow doesn't eat prosciutto so she has no comment.
    As for the bruschetta, it was delicious. Like, really really good."




    [​IMG]

    BBQ Chicken with cilantro, grilled red onions and smokey bbq sauce





    [​IMG]

    Cavatappi Chicken Alfredo with bacon, peas and parmesan cream sauce



    Alice said, "For our mains, we split the BBQ chicken pizza and the chicken Alfredo. I found the BBQ sauce on the pizza to sweet but Snow loved it.
    We both enjoyed the chicken alfredo, although the portion was huge. I particularly enjoyed the pasta choice, it made the dish lighter than if it had been linguini."





    Now for dessert...

    [​IMG]

    Snickers Marble Cheesecake
    Chocolate Graham Cracker Crust, Snicker Crumbs, Caramel, and Chocolate Sauce




    Alice said, "For dessert, we both followed the waitress' advice and had the Snickers cheesecake. It was heavenly, and the third best cheesecake I've had in all my Disney trips. (The best was chocolate cheesecake at Artist point a few years ago, and the second was last night at Jiko!)" :thumbsup2

    This from Alice & Snow...



    "So change of plans today. Snow lost her ticket and we didn't discover this until we were waiting for the bus to go to lunch. At first, we thought she just left it in the room but after spending 30 minutes tearing it apart (and canceling our ADR :worried:) we decided it is lost. So lunch was at the resort."



    Intermission Food Court




    [​IMG]


    "We both had chicken nuggets with fries, she had a side of cheese and then we got the ice cream cookies for dessert 90 minutes later."


    Alice also said, "The nuggets were white meat only, which was nice and the fries were hot and salty (in a good way). While this meal was good, I'm glad I'm not eating it every day!!"



    [​IMG]


    Alice said, "The cookie was HUGE. You choose your cookie and then your ice cream. Amazing use of a snack credit, although ours was considered our dessert. Very good, but more than I could possible eat."
