    Ellen said, "I was not at all hungry but I was dying to try it! It really is spicier than I would thought but also sweet.
    The arugula really helps to cut the sweetness...know what I mean? I think it would be too sweet without it.
    I also had a vanilla iced coffee."




    [​IMG]

    Vanilla Iced Coffee


    Ellen said, "Anyway, I made it through less than half of the waffle...definitely a good one to share!" ;)

    Roma sent a few pics from her dinner tonight at...



    Be Our Guest




    [​IMG]

    Grilled Strip Steak with garlic-herb butter, pommes frites, and green beans


    Roma said, "DH and I split the steak at BOG. It was cooked a perfect medium and we barely needed a fork to cut it. The butter on top was a great added flavor and we both thought the beans and fries were above average. Overall we are extremely impressed with the food here." :thumbsup2




    [​IMG]

    Appetizer Menu


    Roma said, "I'll send the rest of the pics when we get back to our room. The lighting in BOG is not good and made pics difficult."




    As promised, Roma sent the rest of the menu pics this morning...


    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]





    And one more pic was also sent this morning...



    [​IMG]


    Roma said, "DH announced at BoG that he wanted a beer, not even realizing this was the only place you could drink in the Magic Kingdom." ;)


    Be sure to look for Roma's Dining Report to see more pictures from her dinner at Be Our Guest and hear all the details. :thumbsup2



    So that's 5 points for being the first update on this thread from BoG dinner, 1 point for the menu pic, and I'm going to give 1 point for the beer since it is the first beer pic here from Magic Kingdom. ;)



    Additional Note from jabead: Since Roma's update only included one entree from the BoG dinner menu, I'm going to give 5 points to the second update received from dinner at Be Our Guest. :thumbsup2

    Candice said, "Lighting was low so the pictures came out a little dark. For the food, Eric and I loved it except for the cheese course. It was a mix of cow and sheep cheese. Not a fan but other people seemed to enjoy it. I especially liked the 1st course, it was very flavourful and fresh. We are not big drinkers so we didn't really know much about the wine. The couple across from us seemed to really love it though." :thumbsup2
