Our Favorite Food This Week: Boeuf Bourguignon and Creme Brulee
Location: Epcot – Food and Wine, France
Price: Boeuf Bourguignon – $6.25 / Creme Brulee – $4.25
Welcome to this week’s Favorite Food Friday where we share our favorite foods with our friends. This week we head over to Epcot’s International Food and Wine Festival which is filled with food, food, and more food. This year the festival runs from August 31 – November 13. If you get the chance be sure to check it out – there is no additional cost besides the park entrance fee to attend the festival. Our stop today is in France where we tried both the Boeuf Bourguignon and Creme Brulee. Both were very good, but the Creme Brulee was one of the best we have tried on property. The Boeuf Bourguignon has been around for many years and is Cabernet braised short ribs which were very tender with mashed potatoes. If it looks and sounds good to you – stop by our friends at The Disney Food Blog for the recipe. The Creme Brulee was creamy and full of flavor with raspberry jam at the bottom that you could mix in with each bite. Have you tried something that you simply love at this years festival? Let us know!
Our Favorite Food This Week: Night Blossom
Location: Pongu Pongu – Animal Kingdom
Price: $5.99 (8.99 with glowing seed)
Welcome to this week’s Favorite Food Friday where we share our favorite foods with our friends. This week we take a step into Pandora – The World of Avatar at the Animal Kingdom and take a look at one of the most talked about drinks, the Night Blossom. This drink is available at the Pongu Pongu (which means Party Party in the Na’vi language). The Night Blossom is a frozen drink that is filled with both sweet and sour flavors. The flavors are hard to explain, think sour skittles or similar sweet sour candy. The Passion Fruit Boba Balls are definitely a nice treat, the straw that you get is extra wide so these little guys can come right up into your mouth and burst with flavors. Overall it was a great drink on a hot day and one that we would enjoy again. What’s your favorite food in Pandora???
Our Favorite Food This Week: Beer-battered Onion Rings
Location: 50’s Prime Time Cafe – Hollywood Studios
Welcome to this week’s Favorite Food Friday where we share our favorite foods with our friends. One of our favorite spots at Hollywood Studios is 50’s Prime Time, maybe it’s the counters that remind me of my grandparents house, maybe it’s the way they treat you like family, or maybe just maybe it’s the darn good food. There are a couple things that I’m a big fan of, ice cream,as you all know, and Onion Rings. There are not too many places to find Onion Rings on property, but the Beer Battered Onion Rings at 50’s Prime time are a good start. The rings come out in a small frying basket and are served with a Horseradish Sauce, but we opted for Ranch. Overall very tasty and something I would definitely get again. Where is your favorite spot on property for Onion Rings?????
Our Favorite Food This Week: Island Swizzle Ice Tea
Location: Joffrey’s Locations – this one is in Magic Kingdom – Tomorroland
Welcome to this week’s Favorite Food Friday where we share our favorite foods with our friends. It’s warming up out there, even in the future of Tomorrowland it’s hot and we need our caffeine. Joffrey’s Coffee and & Tea Company now has a location in Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom. Right next to the dance party – so get hydrated and get down. Above is a picture of the Island Swizzle Ice Tea, one of my favorite ways to cool off. This tea is mixed with tropical fresh fruit flavors including passion fruit, orange, and guava. Be sure to visit Joffrey’s at their new Revive location.
Our Favorite Food This Week: Jamaican-braised Beef
Location: LA ISLA FRESCA booth at the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival
Welcome to this week’s Favorite Food Friday where we share our favorite foods with our friends. This past weekend we were hanging out at the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival enjoying all the flowers and of course the FOOD. As we circled the globe and tried items from many of the booths, we kept comparing them to our favorite dish of the day…. the Jamaican-braised Beef with Pigeon Pea Rice and Micro Cilantro. This beef was so tender it just broke apart with the fork and had a mouth watering flavor. It was bar far our favorite dish of the festival. This festival does not have as many food booths as the Food and Wine, but they have added more food booths each year. It’s a great time sampling food, hope you get a chance to check it out and let us know what your favorite food of the festival was.
Our Favorite Food This Week: Chicken Parmesan
Location: Pinocchio Village Haus, Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World
Welcome to this week’s Favorite Food Friday where we share our favorite foods with our friends. On our last trip we decided to stop in at Pinocchio’s at the Magic Kingdom since we hadn’t been there in awhile. We always love to sit at the window seats and wave to those beginning their it’s a small world voyage. Food here has changed some in the last few years, so we selected a few different items. My wife picked the Chicken Parmesan and this seemed to be all of our favorite. It’s a standard mix of flavors, a breaded chicken breast, pasta, and sauce. The chicken breast was a good size portion and was very moist. The pasta was cooked well and the sauce added a bit of flavor to the dish, we would have liked a few more spices in the sauce to add a bit more favor. Overall we would order this dish again. Don’t forget to sit by the windows and wave.
