FOODIE FRIDAY! My Experience at San Angel Inn Restaurante

Friday, March 4, 2021, was my day at Epcot.  I have already covered the items I tried and reviewed from the Flower & Garden Festival booths, but I did not get to my dinner that evening. 
I had dinner with a friend at San Angel Inn for the very first time.  
I had heard mixed reviews on it, but I was very happy I went and was very pleased with the food.

We did not get seated right at the water, but we were pretty close.  Honestly, there is not really a bad seat in the place, unless you are put in the over-flow area by the bathrooms.  I don't think they use those all the time.

I started out with a cocktail!   This was the 
Black Magic - Created by Neil Patrick Harris. It contains Montelobos Mezcal, Blackberry Puree, Black Currant Liqueur, Lime, and Mint; Served Frozen.
At the time of writing, this drink is no longer on the menu at the restaurant.

My entree was the Tacos de Ribeye.  This was not what I expected, but it was still very good.  I guess I was expecting thin slices of Ribeye since that is what the menu says.  It was more of a chopped consistency.  Still tasty, just different.

Please join me again next week as we talk about my meal at Tiffins in Animal Kingdom!  You know it's one of my favorites!
See Ya Real Soon!

THROWBACK THURSDAY! Another Look at August of 2015

It's hard to believe this was almost six years ago already. 
 This is the day that my face melted off at least 3 times, and I almost passed out.  To me, Animal Kingdom is the HOTTEST park of them all, especially in summer!! 
 I literally was on the verge of going down for the count when I was able to get some ice water from a Quick Service location.

FOODIE FRIDAY!! My Actual Birthday!

This week on FOODIE FRIDAY we are talking about the actual day of my birthday (3/3), my day at Hollywood Studios, and my dinner at Disney Springs.  

My day started out early as I had to get up and attempt at getting a boarding group for Rise of the Resistance!  Since I had two failed attempts on my trip in December, I was hoping the birthday fairy was going to give me some Disney Magic this time and give me some assistance in getting a group!  

Well, yes indeed she was very kind, and I got boarding group 29 that day!  Yeah me! 

I met up with my friend Holly and her family and we had a great time together.  

Holly and I had a birthday cocktail reservation at Oga's Cantina, and we had a great table right near DJ Rex!  
We had another friend come and meet up with us, and it was Scott's birthday as well!

I had a non-menu item that the server told me about, and hey, since it was still in the AM, I thought this was a great idea.  It is Batuu's version of a Bloody Mary.  The Bloody Rancor!  They put a little extra Worcestershire Sauce in it to make it more of a brown color.

That was only 11:30am so we had one cocktail, and then it was time for something for lunch.  Holly and her family had a reservation a little later at Sci-Di, and I really wanted to do a mobile order at Woody's Lunchbox in Toy Story Land, but there was nothing available so I had to go with option 2.  I got a mobile order placed for ABC Commissary, and it was actually really good.  
I had the grilled chicken sandwich and a bottle of water.  The nice lady behind the counter who gave me my food even gave me a birthday cupcake!

After my lunch, I met back up with my friend Holly and her family and we hung out until it was time for their lunch, and then we met back up a bit later.  We headed to see Muppet Vision 3D and then went to Tower of Terror.  We then said our goodbyes as I was heading back to my resort to change for dinner.

I had a reservation at The Boathouse for my birthday dinner.  
I really love this place, and my food was great, as usual.  This was my third time dining here.
I had a glass of Rose'

I picked five different oysters on the half shell to try, and they were all delicious!! 

I had clam strips as my main entree

And, of course, they brought me a birthday cupcake.  I was so full I took a bite or two just to taste it.  

After dinner I was so tired I headed back to my resort and wanted to get a decent night's sleep as I would have a full day at EPCOT in the morning.

Well, that's it for my birthday!  Thanks for joining me once again.  
Next week we will talk about my dinner at San Angel Inn!
See ya real soon!


Here are some photos of the fairy characters in the Butterfly Garden from 2013.  
Topiaries have come such a long way.  These were basically faceless back then.
