Amorette’s Patisserie | Disney Springs

Okay, there were two things I had to eat while I was at Disney for this trip. First was the apple crumble tart which I got to try at Epcot (and loved), the second was the 50th celebration petit cake at Amorette’s. The first night we arrived in Florida, we came to this mall but the cake was all gone. It was such a bummer. The last night of our trip, we made one final trip to the mall and guess what? THEY HAD IT. So here is a post dedicated JUST TO THIS CAKE.

50th Celebration Petit Cake | $22.00
Vanilla Chiffon Cake with Celebration Blue Mousse, Blueberry Jam, and Lemon Curd

Do you folks watch the Great British Baking Show? I love that show so much. And when they talk about cakes, they are always talking about chiffon, mousse and LEMON CURD. Look, every part of this cake was my jam. I knew I had to get it. It’s 22 freaking dollars…it’s a petit cake. Maybe a 3 inch cake? But do you see all the beauty? Yes, there are gold flakes on it…alongside with the pretty rock candy (I don’t eat rock candy). The inside of the cake was delicious. I don’t care much for fondant so I mainly ate the inside and it was all worth it. I was sad that it was on our last night so I couldn’t even enjoy the whole cake. Why don’t we have these kind cakes here in Hawaii??

Be Our Guest | Magic Kingdom

I didn’t realize it was so hard to make reservations for certain restaurants at Disney. This is definitely one of them so if you are planning a trip, make sure you make you reservations early! We happened to keep checking the day before for any last minute cancellations and was able to score one! A very cute restaurant with a Beauty and the Beast theme. There is the main ballroom (where we dined) and two other rooms – I am happy we got to dine in the main ballroom. All meals are three course meals at $62.00. A much better price than the dang steak we got at Tokyo Dining! Anyway, the Beast comes out to make his rounds but no Belle! Bah!

Captain Nemo Octopus | Appetizer
Seaweed Salad, Cucumber, Pickled Beets, Hearts of Palm, Tapioca Crackers, Beets Mousse, and Carrot-Ginger Silk

Assorted Meats and Artisanal Cheese Selection | Appetizer
Chicken Rillettes, Shaved Serrano Ham, Chorizo Sausage, Pleasant Ridge Cheddar, Truffle Tremor, and Stilton Blue with Seasonal Garnishes

My appetizer and ummm…I might have gotten sick from the cheeses. This is the second time I got sick. I felt really junk after this meal, I found myself a seat on a bench with a wall and like just sat there for hours. I didn’t mind haha…maybe I just reacted poorly with the food.

Center-cut Filet Mignon
Robuchon Yukon Potatoes, Seasonal Vegetables, and Cipollini-Garlic Purée with a Red Wine Purée

We both chose the same dish and it was delicious. Once again, much better than the Japanese steak dish. And they cooked the steak to our specifications perfectly. Lovely dish.

Lemon Jam Macaron
White Chocolate “Chip” Cup – with grey stuff and crisp pearls
Dark Chocolate Truffle – filled with dark chocolate grand manier ganache

You don’t have a choice for dessert – their menu lists these dishes all separately but you actually get this trio. I was already pretty full so I wasn’t really feeling dessert. I didn’t try the grey stuff but I heard the waiter having to tell every table to try the grey stuff it’s delicious, don’t believe him, ask the dishes. Poor guy. Hahaha

Tokyo Dining | Epcot

Another rainy day at Disney, definitely on and off rain. This time we had our rain ponchos ready! Yay! It was still awkward walking around with a wet poncho but I was looking forward to a nice Japanese dinner.

Green Tea | $7.00

Wagyu Set | $68.00 (I think – definitely 60 something!)

I mean, this was a splurge. Was it worth it? No. I think it was supposed to be A5 but it tasted no different from regular steak to be honest. It was not worth the price at all, I get that this is Disney but it was EXPENSIVE.

Salmon Ikura Don | $24.00

Yet another overpriced dish. It was good, not great.

Yuzu Mousse Cake | $18.00

We had to get this for the picture, hahaha. isn’t it cute? It modeled after Epcot and the Japan section of Epcot! It’s not bad. we’re not big fans of yuzu so I don’t think we appreciated it as much as we could have.

Walt Disney World

Hi everyone! I hope you are all doing well. Yes, a month ago I headed to Florida for an impromptu trip. It was super needed, if you know me, I love traveling so this pandemic has been so hard. Walt Disney World is celebrating their 50th year anniversary and Epcot was holding their annual Food and Wine festival so it seems like all the stars were aligned.

The trip was good, I did encounter motion sickness a bit more than I liked. Actually, I think I got food poisoning twice, once was from home onto the plane to Florida and then once was at the park. Haha but I still think it was a good trip! And yes, I pre-scheduled a PCR covid test a few days after my return. I also used the home test kits days after the PCR results too…happy to report that they were all negative!

Anyway, I apologize ahead of time. I will post all week this week and it will be all from Disney or Universal. We spent three days at Disney (Animal Kingdom, Epcot, Magic Kingdom) and one day at Universal. You follow this blog mainly for food so that’s basically what I’m posting! Today’s post is going to be a bunch of random food pics…

Pork Egg Rolls (2) | $6.99

Chicken Fried Rice | $5.99

Yup, this Chinese girl went to Animal Kingdom and eat pork egg rolls and chicken fried rice. LOL. Actually, didn’t eat anything else at the Animal Kingdom. I think we skipped out on dinner here and ate out. Both dishes were pretty okay! Though I had to drown the fried rice in hot sauce.

Pumpkin Creme Brulee | $7.00
pumpkin custard with bruleed sugar, candied pecans, spiced whipped cream, and raspberry tuile

Okay, this is a Disney themed dessert but it’s from Amorette’s Patisserie which is located in the Disney Springs Mall. This wasn’t my dessert but it was enjoyed and isn’t it so pretty?!

Roasted Irish Sausage with Colcannon Potatoes and Onion Gravy | $4.25

This dish was part of the Epcot Food and Wine festival and boy was it SALTY. I couldn’t finish it because it was like eating a salt lick. Not good.

Apple Crumble Tart | $4.50

One of my favorite dishes of the trip. This was one I had earmarked pre-trip that I had to have. I’m a sucker for apple desserts and this met all my expectations. First off, we were rained out on this day so the Appleseed Orchard offered a warm oasis. Seating was a bit limited around the park due to covid so I was happy that we could sit here indoors to eat and they even had a warm apple scent running through the place. Oh this was great.
