    There are two things that stick out for me that aren't around anymore:

    At Jiko a few years back, I had these amazing braised lamb shanks served over cous cous. I can't remember if they were a special or just a seasonal item, but I've been back a couple times since, and they haven't been on the menu in any form. I tend to order different things depending on my mood (I'm not the kind of person who sticks to the same order in favorite restaurants), but I would definitely order that again.

    The other, I know was a regular menu item, and quite a popular one from what I understand, and that's the catfish and cheese grits at Coral Reef. That was an amazing dish. I was told last time I was there that the chef pulled it because he wasn't able to get the same quality catfish he used to, so he didn't want to put out a dish not up to his standards. I can respect that. I just hope that he finds some good catfish again someday. I'd love to have it again, and I can't make it nearly as perfect as they can.

    I'm really disappointed at the menu changes that seem to have resulted from free dining. A couple of my favorites that are no longer available:
    The salmon with pumpkin bread at Liberty Tree and the grilled poundcake for dessert.
    Once of the best things I've ever eaten was the foie gras ravioli I had at Citrico's the first time I ever ate there.
    It seems that the menus are getting very homogenized, and that's a shame because one of the most special things about a WDW vacation has always been the interesting dining opportunities.

    The passion fruit cheesecake at O'Hana's, the maple bbq filet at Le Cellier and definitely figaro fries.

    I know it's been a LOOOONNGGG time for this one, but I REALLY miss the old Mickey ice cream bars. I'm not a huge fan of the hard chocolate shell ( i know the old ones used to melt like crazy in the middle of the summer) But I liked that it was Mickey's face and it had vanilla AND chocolate ice cream. and with these new bars i seem to always drop a slap of chocolate onto my clothes at some point. Am I alone here? lol

    I miss the wrap sandwiches they use to sell at the resturant where Crystal Palace is now. It was before wraps were popular and we loved those. I miss the whole resturant and have never been a fan of Crystal Palace.

    Once at the Crystal Pallace for Dinner there was a Coconut Flan. OMG the most delicious dessert. I actually went back for seconds.

    For me it's not necessarily any specific food, but I miss some of the restaurants:

    The Tangaroa Terrace at the Poly
    Adventureland Veranda and the MK
    Fireworks Factory at Pleasure Island
    Chef Mickey's at the Village Marketplace

    or the changed formats:
    King Stefan's, Crystal Palace, Liberty Tree Tavern at MK
    The Good Turn at EPCOT

    I miss the good food that used to be the norm at WDW. Most of it tasted mediocre. :mad:

    I don't know how long it's been gone, but I miss the Chocolate Chip Pancakes with Peanut Butter Sauce at the Yacht Club Galley. I had those for breakfast most mornings on my first trip to WDW, and really wish I had the recipe. I went there for a birthday breakfast a few years later, but they were gone, and I know I checked the kid's menu since that's where they were when I first had them.

    I thought of two more things, both soups, that haven't been mentioned
    1. The lamb and barley soup at Rose and Crown
    2. The vegetable soup at Pure and Simple. I had an upset stomache one day, and I remember that was the only thing that I could comfortably eat.
