Jetson Quest Electric Scooter

Jetson Quest Electric Scooter

Living close to a college campus, we see all modes of transportation.   But one stands out above them all as small, lightweight, efficient, and most important fun is the electric scooter.   As a college student, I was always running late, the Jetson Quest Electric Scooter allows you to zip past traffic and get to class on time.   No more excuses…..The 250W hub motor lets you travel up to 18 miles at 15mph, while the bright LED headlight and deck lights support nighttime travel.

Favorite Food Friday – Frozen Violet Lemonade

Our Favorite Food This Week: Frozen Desert Violet Lemonade
Location: Pineapple Promenade – Epcot Flower and Garden Festival Booth
Price: $4.25 (Snack DDP)

Welcome to Favorite Food Friday where we share our favorite foods.    This past week we spent a day at Epoct enjoying the beautiful Flower and Garden Festival.   As with each year of this Festival, we look forward to the flower arrangements, we also can’t wait to get another Frozen Violet Lemonade.    This frozen drink is sweet, delicious, and an excellent way to cool off in the spring Florida sun.    This has always been one of our favorite items at the Flower and Garden booths, so we are glad it’s back again this year.    It’s so good, even the Undercover Tourist has a recipe you can try at home if you can’t make it to the parks.   Stay tuned over the next couple weeks as we share more of our Flower and Garden treats.    If you have a favorite this year let us know…… 

Epcot Innoventions West Demo Permit

Epcot Innoventions West Demo Permit

It looks like work on the new entrance to Epcot is beginning.   A permit filed just the other day mentions  demo work on “1400 Avenue oftheStars#A,Bay Lake,FL 32830″ which is Innoventions West.   

This is just a permit filing so it will take some time before the work begins, but this will demo Character Spot, Starbucks, and Club Cool.   Characters from Character Spot will likely relocate to ImageWorks at the exit to Journey Into Imagination With Figment.  Starbucks will find a temporary home.   But, no rumors yet on if Club Cool will return, so you might want to get your fill of Beverly.

Frontera Cocina

Our Favorite Food This Week: Frontera Cocina – Oaxaca Menu
Location: Frontera Cocina – Disney Springs
Price: $ Varies

Welcome to Favorite Food Friday where we share our favorite foods.  This week we headed to Frontera Cocina in Disney Springs to sample some of their new menu items.

As you walk into Frontera Cocina, the scent of fresh flavors greets you, and you can’t help but be excited for the experience ahead. The unique thing about Frontera Cocina is that they have a special menu that changes every 3 to 4 months, so there is always something new to try. Currently, celebrity Chef Rick Bayless is introducing authentic Mexican flavors with his new Oaxaca (wuh-HAH-kuh) inspired menu.

Frontera CocinaThe meal started on an interesting note when Chef Bayless introduced us to one of the favorite snacks of the area.   Nope, not a Mickey Bar or even a Mickey Pretzel… grasshoppers.    Yes, you read that correctly…grasshoppers. Before you turn your nose up at the idea, people living in Oaxaca have been snacking on fried grasshoppers forever, and they’re actually pretty nutritious.  So we dove right in, trying the guacamole topped with fried grasshoppers. I have to say I have never had grasshopper guacamole, but it wasn’t bad.   The grasshoppers had the flavor of a sunflower seed, adding flavor and texture to the guacamole.   If you’re bold enough to try this authentic experience, give it a shot!

The rest of the meal might not have been quite as adventurous, but it was absolutely delicious. Chef Bayless did what he does best…offered a unique menu full of fresh flavors and only the best ingredients. I sampled the Harvest Salad, Beef Short Ribs, Oaxacan Mole Chicken, and the Grilled Swordfish.   All of them were amazing, but if I had to pick favorites, it would be the Short Ribs and the Swordfish.

The short ribs are slow roasted for 12 hours making the meat so tender, it falls apart on your fork and melts in your mouth.   The ribs are served with roasted peanut mole, Cotija mashed potatoes, sautéed Swiss chard, crispy onions and toasted peanuts.   Just talking about this makes me want to head back to experience this dish again.

The swordfish was another favorite. It is grilled to perfection, with a slightly crisp outside and a flaky moist center.  Its complemented by plantain rice, roasted tomatillo serrano aioli, and sautéed Swiss chard.   Seafood lovers can’t go wrong with this dish.

         Frontera Cocina not only introduces you to the food of Oaxaca, but also to some drinks in a limited-time menu.   If you enjoy drinks of the adult persuasion try the Mexcalita (pictured in the upper right corner at the top of the page).   As I sampled this drink, I was told the story behind one of the ingredients: the banhez mezcal.   Banhez Mezcal is the product of Oaxaca farming families working together to produce this handmade, organic, 100% agave mezcal.   It’s has an amazing light, fresh taste and was my favorite of the night.

We finished the meal with a couple amazing desserts.   For those of you wanting to stay within the Oaxaca inspired dishes, you will love the Bunuelitos.   Buñuelos are large fried sweet dough, served sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. It can be found in Oaxaca during the holiday season.   Frontera Cocina puts a little bit of a spin on this tradition by adding cajeta-carmel mousse, red wine drizzle with raw sugar and Mexican cinnamon, dark chocolate shavings, mezcal-infused cranberries and roasted almonds.   Oh so good!  They also offer a fall favorite pumpkin cream tart.

The experience at Frontera Cocina is second to none and it’s always a favorite stop.   The staff takes their time to explain everything on the menu, as well as information about the culture. I can’t complement Frontera Cocina and this new Oaxaca inspired menu enough.   You have to experience it!    The restaurant continues to be one of our favorites in Disney Springs and I look forward to returning again.   The full limited menu is available below.   Enjoy!
