Okay, as promised the pictures of the things we ate while at Disneyland. 🙂 Whenever we travel the biggest part of our budget beyond the getting there and somewhere to sleep is reserved for food. Many of my best trip memories are all tied to what we ate. Disney is a good example of this, though I’d highly advise anyone heading out to a Disney park to take advantage of the reservation system. You can call several weeks before your vacation and get reservations for the best places in the park and the surrounding areas. We’ve found that for many of the top restaurants if you don’t call ahead you just plain aren’t getting in unless you’re lucky and someone cancels while you’re standing there. However, one little call and you can walk up, say “I have a reservation” and you’re usually seated within 10 minutes.
This trip we ate at The Blue Bayou, Catal and Tortilla Joes.
The plate on the left is a chilled octopus and fingerling potato dish which had a really nice lemon butter on it. On the right is a tapa appetizer of meatballs in a tomato sauce. The sauce was a little too close to tomato soup to be my favorite, but the meatballs were very moist and tender.
At all the dinners the boys were gentlemen, which is pretty impressive at 13 and 9, but on our last day we found a meal that suited their wild side.
