    For the last meal of their trip, Candice (Candycane83) and her DH had lunch yesterday at...


    Be Our Guest




    [​IMG]

    Braised Pork (Coq Au Vin style) - eight-hour slow-cooked pork with mushrooms, onions, carrots and bacon served with mashed potatoes and green beens jardiniere





    [​IMG]

    Tuna Nicoise Salad - warm seared tuna steak with chilled green beans, potatoes, olives, roasted bell peppers, tomatoes, and hard boiled eggs






    [​IMG]

    Lemon Raspberry Cream Puff



    Candice said, "We got into Be our Guest yesterday for our last meal of the trip. DH got the braised pork and I got the tuna Niçoise salad and we shared a lemon raspberry cream puff. DH thought the pork tastes good but a little salty. He couldn't finish it because the portion was quite large. I liked the salad, it was fresh but I think the tuna wasn't as fresh as it can be? It wasn't bad though. I did clean my plate. I loved the dessert. It was tart but not too much and the flavours came out nicely in my opinion. My only complaint is that they do not sell tea as a drink.

    Sorry the pictures came out dark because of the lighting in the restaurant. On another note, I loved the atmosphere in the restaurant. (More than the food itself) It was really nice and so detailed. I would probably go back just because of that."

    Roma & her DH were at Downtown Disney yesterday and she sent us an update from...


    Goofy's Candy Co.



    [​IMG]

    Holiday Cupcakes





    [​IMG]

    Pumpkin Fudge



    Roma said, "Of course I couldn't leave Goofy's without my own creation. Mickey rice krispie dipped in dark chocolate, coasted in M & Ms, and drizzled in dark chocolate. I can only handle one bite at a time...but it is so good!"



    [​IMG]






    Roma also sent this pic from their lunch yesterday at...


    Earl of Sandwich



    [​IMG]

    Potato Salad


    Roma said, "This is the best potato salad I have ever had. For people who prefer mayonnaise based potato salad over the traditional mustard, this is for you. Excellent!" :thumbsup2

    Roma & her DH were at DHS today and had lunch at...


    50's Prime Time Cafe



    [​IMG]

    Onion Rings


    Roma said, "These onion rings were piping hot and crispy. Thumbs up from both of us." :thumbsup2




    Then their dessert was from...


    Starring Rolls Bakery



    [​IMG]

    Red Velvet Cupcake



    Roma said, "Our dessert was this little beauty. We bought it prior to going to 50's so it would warm up a bit. Mr. Roma did not like the cake part (I thought it was fine) but loved the frosting and ended up eating his entire portion anyway."

    She said, "Totally forgot to take any pics of lunch. We were at DHS and went to different carts. I did want to mention that DH and DS14 had a sausage, pepper, and onion sandwich at the Dockside Diner that my DH said was the best thing he's eaten so far!" :thumbsup2

    Holy cow, that caprese flatbread looks so good! Does anyone know if it's sold in other spots besides Artists Palette? I can't justify a trip to SSR just for that, DH would kill me. :rotfl:

    We received an update today from Nanabug02. She and her DH arrived at Disney World and had their first meal at Magic Kingdom's...



    Columbia Harbour House


    Nanabug02 said, "Here is our first meal at WDW! We had a lobster roll, bowl of clam chowder, chips, and apple crisps. Lobster roll was good, but too many onions (but I don't like onions). DH loved the chowder and we both really enjoyed the apples crisps. Great counter service meal." :thumbsup2




    [​IMG]




    Then they also visited...


    Gaston's Tavern



    Nanabug02 said, "Here is my hubby with our first snack, the LeFou's Brew. Really good! Very unique flavors."

    Oh my goodness, I'm having a hard time keeping up with this threat - 6 pages read and by the time I post I'll probably be behind 2! :rotfl2: There's so many wonderful live updates. :thumbsup2 That caprese flatbread at Artist's Palette looks wonderful. Glad to see that the red velvet cupcake lovers are sending photos. Yum!

    I'm looking forward to more BOG reviews as that place fascinates me. I want to eat in that dining room so bad. ;)

    Barb thank you once again for all of your wonderful work with this thread. :goodvibes

    Love the photos of the Turf Club. That is one of our favorite restaurants to eat at. Wish I could be eating there tonight! It is like one of those little hidden gem restaurants. It is nice and quiet with really good food.

    Love, love, love that grilled salad. I couldn't believe how good that thing is. Also, I think the prime rib is the best.

    Thanks for the photos!

    Our First Update of the Day was sent to us by Nanabug02.


    She and her DH were at the Grand Floridian Resort last night to have dinner at...


    Narcoossee's



    But on their way to the restaurant, they stopped to take this great Holiday-themed pic...



    [​IMG]

    Gingerbread House (located in the Grand Floridian Lobby)




    They began their dinner at Narcoossee's with these cocktails...


    [​IMG]

    Dirty Shirley (Shirley Temple with Vodka) and Captain Morgan Rum & Coke with Lime


    Nanabug02 said, "When I ordered the Dirty Shirley, the waiter laughed and said we shouldn't say that too loud." :lmao:





    Then for their appetizers, they chose...




    [​IMG]

    Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes
    Served with Gingered “Sweet Potato Salad” with Herbed Creole Mustard Sauce and Candied Pecans



    NB02 said, "This was my appetizer. They were yummy, as always! The sweet potato salad on the side had a weird consistency, but was tasty."





    [​IMG]

    Oysters Two Ways
    Note from jabead: Couldn't find a description of this anywhere, so I think it might be new to the menu. :confused3
    So to the next live reporter who dines at Narcoossee's... BONUS POINT FOR A MENU PIC! :thumbsup2



    NB02 said, "This was hubby's app. He didn't love this. The oysters themselves were great, but he said the other flavors overpowered the dish. He ended up just eating the oysters and leaving the rest."





    Then for their entrees, they chose...


    [​IMG]

    House-made Fettuccini "Scampi"
    Florida Wild Sustainable Jumbo Shrimp and Maine Lobster with Curly Spinach, Baby Heirloom Tomatoes, and Lemon-Chardonnay-Garlic Cream



    NB02 said, "This was okay, pretty basic seafood pasta dish. I didn't finish it."





    [​IMG]

    Butter-poached Lobster Tail and Grilled Filet Mignon
    Boniato Mashed Potatoes, French Beans, and Herbed Cabernet Emulsion



    NB02 said, "Hubby gave this two thumbs up!" :thumbsup2:thumbsup2





    Then for their desserts, they chose...




    [​IMG]

    Baked Chocolate Mousse served Warm and Chocolaty with Bourbon-Caramel Sauce and Whipped Cream


    NB02 said, "This was soooo good and soooooo rich. Highly suggest. But could only eat about a third of it."




    [​IMG]

    Almond-crusted Cheesecake finished with Lambert Cherry Sauce


    NB02 said, "This is hubby's fave dessert in WDW! Great as always! :thumbsup2



    1 point for First of the Day, 1 point for the Gingerbread House, 1 point for Dirty Shirley ('cause this was new to me :lmao:), and 1 point for the Scampi Entree.

    Our next update was the first from HoneyBeeM.


    She said, "Good Morning from WDW! We decided on our drive down last night to truck through to Disney instead of stopping overnight. We got a room for the night at Port Orleans Riverside." :thumbsup2



    So this morning, HoneyBeeM & family had breakfast at...


    Riverside Mill Food Court




    Her little bro chose...


    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]

    HBM said, "My dad had this and said it was great!" :thumbsup2




    "Mom and I split a parfait, oatmeal, and a cinnamon roll. The oatmeal was awesome...very creamy.
    Cinnamon roll was hot and flaky. Yogurt was just okay."
