Some of our dining experiences at Disneyland.

We had to opportunity to eat at several different places on our recent trip to Disneyland, some good some bad. For the most part most of our food experiences were very good with only a couple of klunkers.

Ralph Brennan’s Express: We ate here on our arrival night. This was our first hit, except for one item. They make snowball’s, something I had in New Orleans and was given a lesson in how to make them properly by the man selling me the snowball. He really was a craftsman; he showed us the proper and improper way of making a traditional snowball. Well at Ralph Brennan’s Express they need to take a lesson. This "snowball" was a snowcone, it was icy and not fluffy. The reason it’s a snowball is because the ice is shaved in such a way that it comes out powdery like snow and not icy. That was a dud. Their beignets were ok, not Café Du Monde good but better than what we had at the Port Orleans French Quarter. Can’t beat the real thing, kind of like getting a cheese steak somewhere other than Philly, we do it right here and everyone else is a pretender. My husband ate the BBQ Pork Po-Boy and raved about it, while my daughter and I ate the beignets, we were too tired to eat anything heavy while my husband can eat even when sleeping.

The Carnation Café: This seemed to be our favorite restaurant; we ate here 3 times (twice for breakfast, once for dinner). The food here was very good, so much so we kept going back! The Café Cinnamon Roll French Toast was off the charts; my cinnamon loving husband was in his glory. The Croissant Benedict was good as well, would have been better is they didn’t soft boil the eggs, part of the fun of eating Eggs Benedict is having the yolk and the Hollandaise sauce mix all together, but they over cooked the eggs and thus we had no comingling. Our daughter loved the Mickey waffles, anything she can pour syrup on she likes! 
For dinner my husband started with the Loaded Baked Potato Soup, which he went nuts for. Got an entrée he went with the Main Street Meatloaf Stack, he loved it, he picked out the mushrooms and gave them a dirty look but he really enjoyed this. It was like an open face meatloaf sandwich, it looked really good. I went with the Half Sandwich and Soup, he was right about the potato soup, it really is that good. I chose the turkey sandwich and was happy with my choice, it was a tasty sandwich. Our daughter had the Smucker’s Peanut Butter Painter’s Palette; I had to persuade her into this one because I really wanted to see what it looked like! I would have ordered it for myself if they would have let me! It was one of the coolest kid’s dishes we have seen, it was on a painter’s palette (duh!) and came with jelly and fruit and marshmallows, and for someone who had to be persuaded into getting it she gobbled it up quickly. 

More to come!
