Okay it is now time for me to drool over all of the gluten free yumminess from our trip to Disney. Gonna divide it into 5 posts so that you can enjoy right along with me. Before I begin let me tell you that this vacation was based on food…oh and a desire to meet the princesses. As soon as we decided to go, I began trolling the internet for gluten free posts. Whenever I found one I would pour over the review before sitting and drooling over the photos. When I felt like I had exhausted that resource it was time for Pinterest. Snack photos, lunch photos, desserts. Oh, I literally spent the final four months leading up to the trip gazing at food before going to be on 4 out of 7 nights. Now it is my turn to spread some of that love.
We visited Downtown Disney twice this trip and ate at two different locations. We also visited Babycakes. We were all so tired and it was so very busy that I forgot to snap some photos. I also thought that we would be going back and I was stuffed so we walked out without any goodies. Big mistake as we never made it back. That said, I would highly recommend it to any celiac visiting Downtown Disney. Even if you are not buying, it makes for delicious food gazing.
We did however eat at Wolfgang Puck’s Express. Now, if you have been following us for a while you will recall that we ate there on our previous trip. The food on this visit was equally as yummy. I love how smooth the mashed is and how crispy the chicken skin is. The thing that was missing were the vegetables. Green beans would have pushed this entree over the top. Plus, when you get offered GF creme brulee the meal is instantly yummers.
The second quick service restaurant that we visited was Cookes of Dublin. We just had to go there once I learned that they offered gluten free fish and chips. This dinner lived up to my anticipation (sorry for the crumby photo). Crisp, not greasy batter with nice plump chips. They had two Gf desserts – a zucchini bread with cream cheese icing and a lemon mousse with a hit of raspberry and layer of meringue. Now I love sweet and thoroughly enjoyed the mousse concoction. Glenn let me taste his zucchini item but it was very dense and bland unless you got a bite with both bread and icing. (you can just see the creamy white icing in the first photo. It was a very pretty dessert.)
