    Hi Barb, I'm going to Melbourne, FL for work for about 3 weeks. Evidently it's only about an hours drive from the world, so if I get any free time guess where I will be going. I could send you some reports from anywhere I end up if you'd like!! I'll be there 5/21 until at least 6/10.

    That flatbread looks really good. Being from NY, I'm not a big fan of Disney pizza (except Via Napoli) but I do like the flatbreads!

    Just a few more updates to post from yesterday, starting with this one from MommaBerd.


    She said, "We dined our way around Epcot this afternoon!"


    Boulangerie Patisserie


    "My DH ordered the Poullet au Pisto and a strawberry creme tarte at Les Halles's. Both were excellent."


    [​IMG]

    Poulet au Pistou - chicken breast with cheese, tomato, red onion and pesto



    Then from the Moroccan F & G booth...

    Taste of Marrakesh


    [​IMG]

    Spiced Lamb Kebab with Vegetable Couscous Salad


    "This was our favorite little dish we tried, maybe even favorite dish we had in all today. Couscous had so many flavors working together in yummy harmony!"





    Next from the Japan booth...


    HANAMI


    [​IMG]

    YakiSoba Pan (Fresh grilled carrots, onions and cabbage with Japanese noodles and teriyaki sauce served on a bun with mayonnaise and Beni Shoga)


    "This was our least favorite, and we ended up throwing most of it away."




    "And then last from China's booth, Lotus House, we had the candied strawberries. I don't have a picture, but I highly recommend them (unless you don't like sesame seeds.) The strawberries were sweet and fresh - a very light tasting treat."

    Then MommaBerd also sent us an update from their dinner last night at ...


    La Hacienda de San Angel


    [​IMG]




    She said, "We chose the Lime Raspberry and Avocado Margaritas."


    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]


    "One thing about these margaritas - they did not skimp on the alcohol!" ;)




    Then they started with...


    [​IMG]

    Queso Fundido - melted cheese with poblano peppers, chorizo, and flour tortillas




    [​IMG]

    Costillas en salsa de Chile - braised short ribs served with potato puree and chile de arbol sauce


    "DH really enjoyed it! The pork was so tender."




    [​IMG]

    Tacos de Camarones - Fried shrimp, chipotle-lime aioli, cabbage, lime and salsa verde, all served over flour tortillas


    "I thought this was very tasty too." :thumbsup2




    "Finally, we each ordered the Empanadas de manzana, which I would highly recommend!"

    Also coming in last night was Chavaleh's update from their dinner at...


    '50s Prime Time Cafe



    First a pic from the waiting area...


    [​IMG]



    Then a pic of the cocktail menu...


    [​IMG]




    "I had a Magical Star cocktail which was only OK but looked pretty cool."


    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]




    "Then we ordered the onion rings which were tasty, I especially enjoyed the horseradish dip they came with & the fried herb and garlic cheese. It was also good but not quite as big of a hit with the kids."



    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]




    "Isadora & Rhiannon both got the fried chicken."


    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]




    "Thomas and I both got the sampler platter but I gave him my meatloaf and he gave me his pot roast." ;)



    [​IMG]





    "We all also got milk shakes, two chocolate, two strawberry."


    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    "They make a good shake here. We should have gotten them for desserts because we were so stuffed we could barely take but a few bites of them."

    "Bread basket with sourdough rolls and sea salt butter."




    [​IMG]

    "Shrimp cocktail for appetizer. Great with avocado and vinaigrette."

    Next we have the final updates from MrsBearcat, who's trip ended yesterday.


    She said, "Sorry I haven't sent more but it has been a crazy week at the World. I'm just going to send a mish mash of the last few days."



    Everything Pop


    [​IMG]


    "Mickey waffle Kids meal with chicken sausage, turkey bacon and fresh fruit. Waffles were good, fruit was really bland and tasted like it's frozen instead of fresh, turkey bacon was good, chicken sausage was yuck."




    Casey's Corner


    [​IMG]

    "Chicago hot dog and nachos. Too much bread again but I just ate the insides and left the whole bun. Brian loved the nachos."




    Roaring Fork


    [​IMG]

    "S'mores cupcake...WONDERFUL! Only Disney could make cake taste like graham crackers."




    Gaston's Tavern


    [​IMG]

    "Cinnamon roll and LeFou's Brew. I thought the brew would be much sweeter but it was a little tart, which was a good thing because the cinnamon roll was almost too sweet."




    Tortuga Tavern

    [​IMG]

    "Brian had a burrito. This was the first time we have ever seen this open so we had to try it. Pretty good but huge."




    Storybook Circus - Big Top Treats


    [​IMG]

    "Cherry Goofy Glacier & Mickey Cake Pop. The cake pop was ok and glacier was perfect to cool off."




    Columbia Harbour House


    [​IMG]

    "Fish basket with fries and apple crisp. Good and not too greasy like some fried foods."




    "And to end our trip, from...


    Everything Pop


    [​IMG]

    "Pop waffle with bacon."

    The first was from an Epcot F & G booth...


    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]

    Smoked Beef Brisket with Collard Greens and Jalapeño Corn Bread


    Lori said, "I had no idea greens could be so good! Brisket had a huge piece of fat so I was disappointed in that."




    Everything Pop



    [​IMG]

    Tye-dye cheesecake


    "First time to try and it's very good." :thumbsup2

    My fam of 4 will be staying at CSR 9/15-9/24 and doing using the deluxe dp...I wouldn't mind trying to give some updates either. This thread has been a major help to me in deciding where to eat so I'm thinking I'd better try to pay it forward!
