    With all the recent discussion of Le Cellier, now I'm more curious than ever to see how their lunch menu changes in January (once it becomes a 2-TS meal, like dinner). :scratchin

    Good point, I'd forgotten about that
    Personally I just don't regard LC as being in the same league as say, Jiko or Yachtsman
    I wonder if people will be willing to spend two credits on a lunch at LC when for the same credits they could have dinner at the updated California Grill whilst watching the fireworks?

    Yeah, we had lunch at LC and I kept eying the menu thinking that it will need a huge overhaul. I love my mushroom filet, but it's not nearly the same size/value/service as we got at Yachtsman, and if the prices jump to $40+/steak, it's going to price me out.

    Alice & Snow attended MNSSHP at Magic Kingdom on Friday night and had this snack...



    [​IMG]

    Chili Cheese Fries - French fries served with melted cheese and chili, plus lettuce added.


    Alice didn't say, but I'm thinking these came from Pecos Bill's. Please correct me if I'm wrong, Alice. ;)

    Yesterday Alice & Snow were at Animal Kingdom, where they had lunch at...



    YAK & YETI




    [​IMG]

    Wok-Fried Green Beans - Battered green beans with sweet Thai chili sauce




    [​IMG]

    Pork Pot Stickers - Pan seared with soy lime dipping sauce.

    Alice said, "The pot stickers were quite good and the green beans were addictive! Although I do love a good sweet chili sauce." :laughing:



    [​IMG]

    Crispy Honey Chicken - Tempura chicken, broccoli, carrots and honey sauce.


    Alice said, "We both had the crispy honey chicken. I always order this, but I was disappointed with it this time. Nothing I can even put my finger on, just the overall taste was a bit blah." :confused3





    [​IMG]

    Fried Wontons - Skewers of fresh pineapple and cream cheese wontons with vanilla ice cream and honey vanilla drizzle


    Alice said, "For dessert we both had the wontons. They were delish as always!! I really enjoy this dessert, although be warned it is RICH." ;)



    Sadly this was Alice BlueBonnet's final update of her trip, as yesterday was her last day at Disney World. And yesterday was also Ginamarie's departure day. :sad1:


    So on behalf of everyone here, I just wanted to say... :thanks:
    and
    Congratulate you both on a job very well-done. :thumbsup2

    Via Nappoli!! Yum!! I think the main reason I want this over Le Cellier is I love a good pizza and my hubby used to make his own Zeppoli's! I want him to try these and compare them!!
