Eating @ Disneyland (Day 3)

I expected the food at Disneyland to suck. It was actually better than I expected.
For breakfast, I had a simple croissant sandwich with scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese and bacon. Only the eggs were warm. On the bright note, both the orange and the grapes were really fresh and sweet.
I snacked on a churro from one of the many carts around the theme park. It was a satisfying snack- crispy and sweetened with sugar and cinnamon on the outside, and the interior was nice and soft, like a doughnut.
On Main Street, we went to eat some ice cream to cool off.
The ice cream here is supplied by Dreyer's.
Dipped cones looked quite enticing, but I was too cheap to pay for one.
Instead, we settled for a scoop of mocha almond fudge ice cream in a waffle cup. It was delicious and refreshing!
For dinner, I decided to go to a nicer restaurant at a Disney hotel after a full day of snacking. I opted for Napa Rose at the Grand Californian.
The restaurant had an open kitchen.
A nicely presented bread basket. I liked the triangular crackers the most.
We shared a platter of appetizers called the Seven Sparking Sins: spicy beef & peanut roll, curried crab taco seared Ahi nacho, shrimp in cucumber wrap with lemon dill crème, citrus cured salmon corn cake, tangerine grilled scallop and grape leaves with pheasant.
A close up of the scallop dish. I enjoyed this one quite a lot.
Sautéed veal rollatini and crisp sweetbreads: Bread Panzanella, Sonoma mushrooms and mustard sauce. I enjoyed this a lot more than the appetizer platter. The flavour and texture combinations were quite interesting. However, this was a very pricey meal for the quality of the food and I sort of wished I went somewhere cheaper.

  1. I always dine at Club 33 when we travel to Disneyland. Napa Rose looks like a great place to eat too. I am intrigued by that Seven Sparking Sins.
