    I love the Kona coffee though, drank the whole thing!" :thumbsup2

    emmebear said, "Warm and delicious."





    [​IMG]

    Poutine


    emmebear said, "This was disappointing. I visit Montreal a lot and Poutine is one of my favorite things to eat. Gravy was spot on but the cheese was not. It's suppose to be cheese curds."





    [​IMG]

    Wild Mushroom Filet Mignon
    Le Cellier "Signature Dish" served with Wild Mushroom Risotto and White Truffle Butter Sauce



    emmebear said, "The risotto was too thick and stiff, but the flavor was nice. The filet was cooked perfectly."

    Wow....I'm drooling! Everything is wonderful!! We never stop by the Champagne booth last year...need to be sure and do that this year! The Soju slushie....never heard of it, looks wonderful! What is the flavor...looks mango almost? I am assuming Soju is alcohol? Would love to try this one also!

    soju is alcohol. jinro soju is the world's best selling liqour. similar to vodka (if you need something to compare it to).

    it wasn't mango tasting...just fruity (not too much) & slightly bitter.

    i think the funniest thing i heard during f&w was the gentleman working the south korea station stating that the kimchi being served is not "real kimchi" but americanized. he still managed to scare the people away. ha ha.

    We are going to take a little detour West now for a little Disneyland food fun, sent to us by our Live Reporter there,
    Linda (Linda67).
    She arrived at the Disneyland Hotel yesterday and her first taste of Disneyland was from...



    Trader Sam's
    Enchanted Tiki Bar
    (located at the Disneyland Hotel)


    [​IMG]


    Linda said, "Ladies and Gentleman, I present the Hippopottimo-Mai-Tai from Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar.
    A blend of light and dark rum, pineapple and lime juice. Delicious!!!" :thumbsup2


    Linda also added, "Trader Sam's has just taken first place as my fave Disney bar!!

    Then for dinner last night, Linda dined at the Disneyland Hotel's...



    [​IMG]


    Tangaroa Terrace Casual Island Dining is a quick service retreat complete with lit torches and music from the South Seas.



    [​IMG]

    Crispy Tofu Salad



    Linda said, "This was Panko Crusted Tofu served on a bed of crisp cabbage, lettuce and tomato salad, and served with a citrus, soy dressing (on the side). I really didn't expect much of this dish but wanted something quick and light back at my hotel. I was pleasantly surprised, It was absolutely delicious and a wonderful and flavorful dish! The veggies were fresh and crisp and the dressing really added a nice spicy kick. According to the description on the menu, coconut was used in the breading on the tofu but I didn't pick up that flavour at all. I really enjoyed this dinner and sitting on the terrace under the tiki torches was a lovely way to wrap up a long day."

    "Great views from this restaurant!" :)

    Flo's Seasonal Fruit Plate


    Linda said, "The fruit was really fresh. The yogurt was low fat strawberry and the muffin was a lovely fresh blueberry one.

    And this report regarding Linda's lunch today...



    Linda said, "In my mission to collect as many souvenir glasses as possible on this trip, I decided to take a seat at Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar for a late lunch, ahead of tonight's Halloween party."



    [​IMG]

    "The Krakatoa Punch"
    A blend of light and dark rum with Almond and orange liquor



    Linda said, "This is my new favorite cocktail - not too sweet and how can you not love a drink served in such a cute glass! For those who don't know much about this bar, certain drinks cause special effects to take place in the bar.
    This beauty caused the volcano through the windows to erupt complete with full lava flow
    (and the happy barman spraying me with water!)" :lmao:





    [​IMG]

    Grilled Mahi Mahi Fish Tacos


    Linda said, "The tacos were so soft and fresh and the Mahi Mahi was perfectly spiced and the slaw and dressing were perfect."

    A Close Up Shot



    Linda added, "I encourage anyone in the area to check this place out for light snacks, great cocktails and appetizers." :thumbsup2
