Day 273 in eating my way around the world and meeting up with Mickey
My plan for today was to continue my research on healthy choices at the restaurants we will frequent at Walt Disney World in October. My go-to site for this is AllEars.Net. Seriously, you have to check out this site! It is simply a Disneyphiles dream.
Here we go again:
- Artist’s Point at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge for dinner: Healthiest Appetizer: Signature Field Greens Salad Thing I may order: The salad aforementioned or Artisnal Cheese Selection Entree: Healthiest entree–Grilled Filet Mignon OR Cornish Hen What I will order: Cedar Plank-Roasted King Salmon (I’ve had this each time we’ve been there. It is amazing!) Dessert: Healthiest option:Artisnal Cheese Selection What I will order-Vairhona Dark Chocolate Creme Brulee AND 6 spoons! I really want to try this, even just one spoonful. 🙂
- Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant at Pleasure Island (or whatever it’s called nowadays-it’ll always be Pleasure Island to me!) for dinner: This will be just Mike and I, so we will probably leave a lot of food behind. We get a date night out of the parks; I’m so excited! The healthiest appetizer on the menu is Heritage Tomato Salad. What I will probably order: (Well, I need to ask about the mysterious Soul Soup!) But I’m thinking the Luscious Tart. Entree: The healthiest things are probably Braised Be. Beef OR Mammy’s Roast Chicken But I will probably order Bangers and Booz (one of my all time favorite meals in England or Ireland). And I know Mike will want the Fish and Chips, and we’ll split a side of roasted root vegetables. Dessert: the healthiest choice-Moore Street Market But I will try Trifle Sinful OR Dunbrody Kiss (which is described as “chocolate, add chocolate and add some more.” Oh, yeah!
- 50’s Prime Time Cafe at Disney’s Hollywood Studios for lunch: Appetizers: Healthiest choice: Cousin Amy’s Lettuce Wedge What we will share-Fried Herb and Garlic Cheese. Entree: The healthiest things on the menu are probably 50’s Prime Time Blue Plate Special “a healthy seasonal special” OR the Salmon or Chicken Caesar Salad I will order one of those three Dessert: Healthiest choice: No Sugar Added Cheesecake What I will order 50’s Boston Cream Parfait AND S’mores AND 6 forks and spoons.
- San Angel Inn Restaurante at EPCOT for lunch-Appetizers: probably the 2 healthiest things to choose from are Ensalade Cesar (Caesar Salad) OR Coctel de Camaron (shrimp cocktail) I would try either. Entree: Healthiest choices-
“Loma de Puerco en Pipian – Pork tenderloin served over roasted vegetables and “pipian” – pumpkin, chiles and almond sauce” OR “Pescado a la Veracruzana – Catch of the day prepared with capers, olives, bell peppers, Spanish onions, and tomatoes, seasoned with white wine and spices, served over poblano rice.” Either way, Mike and I will share. Dessert: Healthiest option: “Crema Bavaria – creamy Bavarian mousse served with mixed berries, cinnamon and orange liqueur and vanilla sauce” I will either order that or “Mousse de Chocolate – Chocolate mousse and almond brittle candy.” Say it with me now, “And 6 Spoons!”
That’s about it. However, The EPCOT Food and Wine Festival is happening while we’re there, so I know we’ll sample some goodies there, too. More about that later.
Meet you at the Kingdom!
