The first restaurant I loved was one that we went there on our first and third nights there. This place is called Boma and it is an African themed buffet that has soups, stews, and sliced meat. Some of my favorite things there were the sliced meats and the bread pudding. I really enjoyed the sliced steak because it was cooked well. It was a little chewy, but that gave it nice flavor, and it was seasoned perfectly. Another one of the sliced meats was the pork shoulder. I really liked this meat because it was soft, and I particularly like softer pork. The bread pudding was the best dessert ever. If I ever went back it would definitely, no doubt, be on my list to have again. It was served warm with chocolate, vanilla, and banana flavors and was a nice way to end a meal in my opinion especially being in an airport and plane for most of the day.
The next restaurant I would be delighted to talk about is called Sanaa and it is an Indian fusion restaurant at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. The #1 thing we had there was the bread platter. The bread platter was a couple of different types of naan (an Indian flat bread) with twelve different types of sauces put in order from spicy to sweet. My family split up all the bread up equally, and then we dug in! The first one I tried was one that was recommended to me by someone was the pickled garlic. I remember it giving heat but not so much that it wasn’t enjoyable. I think out of all the sauces, that one really stood out to me. After that, I tried a few more of the sauces that were really good too.
My favorite park in out of the Magic Kingdom parks is Epcot. I love Epcot because I love going to all of the different countries and trying new, exotic flavors. When we went to Epcot for dinner, we went to a Moroccan themed restaurant. As soon as we stepped in, I loved it. There was music, and a belly dancer and all of these yummy smells. We were seated right next to the dance floor which I really loved. We ordered two dishes, and both of them were packed with new and interesting flavors. The first dish we got was chicken bastilla. It was like a samosa. It had meat, and it was dipped in powdered sugar so, it was a sweet and savory samosa. I thought it was pretty good. I guess I just don’t like how the flavors contrasted a little bit, but that is just my opinion. The next thing we had was beef kabobs with couscous. I loved the moroccan spices on the beef which gave it really bold flavors and the couscous went well with the beef. I liked the restaurant and it was also rated as one of the best restaurants in Epcot.
Everybody knows that Magic Kingdom is a magical place but it also has magical food. Be Our Guest is in a restaurant in the center of Magic Kingdom that is based off of the Beast’s Castle from the movie Beauty and the Beast. Be Our Guest is the best restaurant in Magic Kingdom and is really hard to get into without a reservation. We got really lucky and made a reservation for our last day. When you walked it was huge and it was really beautiful. When you got in you waited on a line to go to this computer. Once you got to it, you ordered on its touch screen which foods you wanted. It game with a drink, an entree, and a dessert. I got a tuna salad and potato leek soup. The dining room was a “seat yourself” with huge tables and a sculpture of Beauty and the Beast dancing in the middle. Your food came on a cart that servers had. Now let's talk about the food. My tuna salad was really good. The tuna was very nicely cooked and I really enjoyed the crust on the outside. My potato leek soup was outstanding! At first when I ordered it I was a little hesitant, but the potato gave the soup a nice creamy taste, and the leek was very tasty in the soup. For dessert, I had the Master's Cupcake which had grey frosting. Try the grey stuff, it's delicious! Overall, I’m really glad we went there as our last meal and I really did have a magical time.
Even the snacks are special in Disney. In Magic Kingdom some of you may have heard of an ice cream called the Dole Whip. It is a pineapple ice cream made in Magic Kingdom, and throughout Disney. Personally I don’t like tropical flavors but I was ready to give these a shot because Disney is magical after all. The Dole Whip was amazing! It was creamy with a fruity taste that went well with the cream. Now that I am back in New York, I am really craving another Dole Whip.
The next special snack is the turkey leg. It is a giant turkey leg that we got at Magic Kingdom. It was nice and smoky and had crispy skin. It was so huge that my whole family went through one and we were all pretty full after that. I really enjoyed my time at Disney, and I hope that if you plan to go to Disney, you will go and eat some of the things I have recommended. If you do go, I wish you have as magical a trip as I had.
