Okay let's see if this worked.
Meatball platter with yellow rice, Tangierine Cafe, Morocco, Epcot



Sorry I had started to eat it before remembering to take a picture. I loved it and can't wait to have it again.

Brown Derby - Hollywood Studios

Bread and butter



Our Famous Cobb Salad for Two - with finely chopped greens, turkey breast, egg, bacon, tomatoes, crumbled blue cheese, avocado, chives and Cobb dressing $15


Excellent! If I were not on the dining plan, I would go here for this salad. Great deal for an OOP option!

Sterling Silver Pork Chop - topped with smoked gouda and apricot preserve served over Napa cabbage, bacon and potato hash with apple cider jus $33


With the exception of the pork being more well done than I prefer, this was very good! The hash under was SO good and the cheese was all gooey and browned on top.

Grapefruit Cake - A Brown Derby Original! Light Layers of Yellow Cake with fresh Grapefruit Cream Cheese Icing $7


Honestly, I thought it would be a bit sweeter but it had more of the bitterness of grapefruit which took me by surprise. Iím glad I tried it but given the chance, I will go with something else next time.

HBD Grapefruit Dessert

I TOTALLY Agree - and I REALLY wanted to LOVE this dessert because I LOVE Grapefruit and Grapefruit Juice...

BUT - I really did not like it... It's all good though... the "Dessert" came along with our Fantasmic package... which we truly enjoyed....

Hugs,
Mary

i stayed at the swan last year for my bday, and i did go to kimonos one night for some sushi. sorry the pics are so dark. i normally use a flash on my food pics, but kimonos just didn't seem as conducive to it as disney restaurants.

pretty sure this was a shrimp tempura roll


and here's some tempura


and may as well throw in a drink while we're at it. this was a strawberry lemonade alcoholic beverage. there were muddled real strawberries and it was amazingly good

Contempo Cafe

Side order of french fries.



Stacked Sandwich - Smoked Ham, dill havarti and honey mustard on ciabatta bread. Wish I had known it came with iceberg lettuce. The kiosk said arugula. Obviously that was wrong. It would have been better without the lettuce. We split this on our first day but DH didn't care for it at all. The chips were very good though. On the right you can see the carrot cake. It was okay too.

Tony's Town Square

Bread with olive oil and spices. The bread was warm and with the dip it was very tasty. It had some sort of garlic butter on top that was also very good.



Chicken parmesan. The chicken itself was seasoned very well and a good size. The noodles were overcooked though and the sauce wasn't to my liking. It was very chunky and the flavor was just okay.



Tiramisu. I normally love this dessert but this one wasn't your average tiramisu. We had it from here back in March 2008 and it has definitely changed. The custard had a good flavor but there were literally no ladyfingers in neither mine nor DH serving. It may have been just our servings, I'm not sure.



Overall, this will probably be our last time here. The service was fine and the price is okay if you're not on the DDP. But it was our least favorite of the whole trip.

Electric Umbrella

Bacon double cheeseburger with french fries. Both DH and I liked this place a lot. The burgers were pretty good IMO. I'm not sure why people have complained about the buns...I thought they were fine.



Cheesecake! This was actually very good.

Teppan Edo in Japan pavilion

Steak and shrimp with vegetables (zucchini, onions, mushrooms), noodles, and rice. We love this place. We were sitting with another family so I had eaten some of mine before I ventured to take the picture! The portions are a little larger than pictured. The dipping sauces are great too!



Chocolate ginger cake. Not my favorite dessert but it was pretty good.



Overall, we love this place! It did get a little hot in the dining area, probably because of the grills right in front of us. They could have cranked the A/C a little more but the food was wonderful.

Norway bakery

The famous school bread! It totally lived up to the hype for me, but I do LOVE all things coconut. I ate this for breakfast one morning and it was extremely filling.

Aloha Isle

Another first for me - Dole Whip float. I had gone back and forth with myself as to which type I was going to get, vanilla and pineapple swirl, plain pineapple, float, etc. When I finally got to the line and saw the choices in person, I finally decided on the float. I was so glad with my choice! I can't wait to go back and get another one! Pineapple is another love of mine! Oh, and DH had gone to get a different snack with the camera so I had already eaten quite a bit off of the top b/c it was melting. Normally, they're much higher at the top.

California Grill

Bread and butter. The bread wasn't warm but it was okay. I probably wouldn't eat it again as to save room for the rest.



Sonoma Goat Cheese Ravioli - with sun-dried tomatoes, pesto, shiitake mushrooms, and basil $14. I really enjoyed this. The flavor was excellent. It also came with onions on top of the ravioli. I'm not sure if I'd order it again because of the price but I did enjoy it this time. I am a huge goat cheese fan and I like sun-dried tomatoes a lot also so that is why I chose it.



I don't see this on any of the online menus but it is what DH ordered for his app. It was some sort of tempura crab I think. He absolutely loved it. It was definitely appetizer sized though.



Grilled Pork Tenderloin - with goat cheese polenta, button mushrooms and zinfandel glaze $34. Again, I love goat cheese. I honestly think this whole dish was the best thing I've ever had in my life. Seriously. The pork was cooked perfectly and the polenta...WOW! I really could have made a meal just out of that. We're planning a trip in December and I'll be so tempted to get this again, even though I probably should try something different. It may not look that special but I just can't say enough about it - it was that good.



Oak-fired Fillet Of Beef - with Tillamook Cheddar Gratin, broccolini, and teriyaki barbecue $44. This was DH's entree. He also couldn't stop talking about this. We've been to Ruth's Chris Steakhouse twice and he said this was hands-down the best steak he's ever had. As you might can see, it came with asparagus, although the online menus say broccolini.



Bananas and Caramel - Crispy baked phyllo squares layered w/banana, caramel, mascarpone mousse, and caramelized banana $12. DH's dessert (I don't like bananas). He loved this. We're not really sure what the bottom layer was though. It was frozen and didn't have much of a taste. It definitely wasn't the mascarpone mousse. This was the only part of the dish he would have changed. I tasted it too and was a little perplexed. Didn't have a banana flavor either...



Mascarpone and Meyer Lemon Cheesecake - Whipped cheesecake and meyer lemon panna cotta w/huckleberry jam $12. Sorry, I had taken a small bite already! This dessert was just okay. I really should have ordered the chocolate cake. I guess I was trying to branch out. The cheesecake was okay and the biscuit on the right side was good. Whatever was in the middle I didn't care for at all. The berries had a very sour flavor.



Overall, the best meal of our trip! Expensive, but very very good. This will be one of only two table services we do in December. The view was also amazing! The service was a little pretentious but I guess you could expect that in a place like this. He was polite but not very friendly. But then again, I'm from the South...maybe my expectations are off?
