Rewind Orlando 2013 Part 3

So here is the last post from my Rewind back to Orlando in 2013. Hope you've enjoyed reading them. I've enjoyed remembering all the yummy food we ate.

We ate tea tonight at a restaurant in the Disney Boardwalk area called Kouzzina by Cat Cora. Apparently Cat Cora is an American “celebrity chef” who was on the Iron Chef programme on Food Network. Anyway, her restaurant is Greek inspired. The chef came over to tell me what he could adapt on the menu to make it DF/EF/WF. We were given fresh bread (even wheat free ones for me) with two types of olive oil and olives. All very tasty. I had braised short rib with garlic and rosemary potatoes as my main. It was delicious. The meat was so tender and the sauce very yummy. Husnabd has a trio of different entrees. Spicy lamb burger, cinnamon chicken with orzo and Greek style lasagne. He loved his selection too esp the chicken.
(This restaurant has now closed and been replaced)

After the cinema I popped over to Babycakes to get a few slices of cake for snacking on :) yum 

This morning we had the best breakfast ever!! We ate at the Grand Floridian Cafe. Husband had a selection of pastries and a big pile of fluffy pancakes topped with maple syrup and orange & pecan butter. 
The chef made me the greatest Mickey waffles free from dairy, eggs & wheat. They were crunchy on the outside with a fluffy soft middle…mmmmm amazing :)

Last night we ate at Kona Cafe at the Disney Polynesian Resort. For starters Husband had Crab Cakes with a jalapeno dip, I had ribs with a BBQ glaze and Asian inspired slaw. Both agreed very tasty. We both had the same main, Teriyaki pineapple glazed New York strip steak on sticky rice with broccolini. It was gorgeous, another steak that just melted mmmm.

Fresh made cookies for round the pool :)

This evening we went to “Food Truck Friday” in a town called Celebration. Husband tried a few different trucks. He had a Cuban sandwich from the Twisted Cuban which was cuban bread, mojo roast pork, ham, pickles mustard and swiss cheese, then a Boss Hog from the BBQ truck which was pulled pork in a bun with homemade BBQ sauce and slaw. He really enjoyed both. I opted for Polynesian Chicken from the Wild Truck. Was delicious. Lovely slightly curried chicken with pineapple, peppers, carrots & onions on steamed rice. Yumeee!!

This was my “low lactose” meal on the flight home. The chicken and rice was quite tasty for airplane food. Not a bad effort by BA for both flights.
Husband had Steak with a rosemary jus and potato and a cheesecake for desert. Smelt nice!

I couldn't leave America without bringing a few of my favorite freefrom items back. I loved the daiya cheese as it acts and tastes very like proper cheese. I’m going to have to use it sparingly so I don’t run out quickly. Also loved the Bobs red mill pancake mix (Disney use it for their allergy free waffles too) so I stocked up on that too :) lots of other little goodies too :)
