I LOVE DISNEYLAND and I don't think anyone can grow out of it. Cathy is the one that lives in Southern California and is only an hour away from the Happiest Place on Earth but I actually go more often than she does. Cathy, how is that possible? You should be whipping out your Premium annual pass and flashing it in my face making me all jealous!
Anyways, in Disneyland, every ten feet there's a food stand. The churros, the Mickey pretzels, corn dogs, all so delicious! Most people just fill up from migrating from stand to stand but most of their restaurants are also just as wonderful so you gotta save your tummy
Ta-da! That right there on the table is all good delicious yumminess. For the last few years, my family and I have made it an habit to going Café Orleans for lunch. It's in New Orleans part of Disneyland, right next to the Pirates of the Caribbean ride.
Since it's all sit-down, it's the perfect way to get away from the hectic crowds for a bit and give your poor feet a rest. Café Orleans is pretty busy during lunch hours so make a reservations beforehand!
These Pommes Frites are THE BOMB! We always have to order two of these because it's like a cat fight when these are put on the table. My two sisters and I are pulling hair and grabbing each other's necks for these sticks of joy. They're deliciously deep-fried to perfection and tossed in garlic and herbs. They also provide a Cajun spice remoulade dipping sauce which is plain amazing. I would be willing to drink these right out of the little cup. Mmm...BOTTOMS UP, CAJUN REMOULADE SHOTS!
|New Orleans Gumbo|
Their gumbo is gold. Liquid gold. Savory, with the right amount of pepper for spice and all the vegetables and meat taste fresh. You can actually get Disneyland gumbo at the food stand right across from Café Orleans and it's actually just as great. And it comes in a bread bowl
(I wish I would have wiped that dot of gumbo off the plate before snapping pictures, it kind of erking me and making me a bit OCD haha)
|Monte Cristo Sandwich|
Their most popular dish is the Monte Cristo Sandwich. It's a sandwich filled with ham and cheese then thrown into the deep-fryer until a crispy golden brown then topped with powdered sugar. And you should definetely dip you sandwich in the jam that's provided. The sweet and salty combo what makes the Monte Cristo!
|N'awlins Vegetable Ragout|
My mom's a vegetarian so we ordered so we ordered a vegetarian dish for her. The N'awlins Vegetable Ragout is a tomato based so to contrast its tanginess, its paired with cornbread. I guess it was alright, but I felt the flavor wasn't deep enough. Gorgeous presentation though!
