REVIEW: Donut-Breaded Chicken Nuggets, Pork Belly Burger, Pumpkin Pie Shake at D-Luxe Burger, Disney Springs
D-Luxe Burger at Disney Springs recently underwent a minor menu update, introducing a new burger, new donut-breaded chicken breast nuggets, and a new seasonal shake, so we figured we would head on over and check it out. If you haven’t been here before, be sure to go through our review of most of the other items on the menu here.
Pork Belly Burger ($11.99)
Pork Belly Burger topped with Cheddar, Red Onions, Lettuce, Tomato, Spicy Pepper Relish and Remoulade Sauce
The burger patty itself is quite interesting, like a less spicy version of the El Diablo burger. The patty is another of the blended variety, mixing beef with pork belly, if you couldn’t tell by the title. Personally, I prefer spicy, so the Diablo is still my favorite, but this is certainly high on the list here. I’m not usually a big fan of remoulade, but it was nicely balanced out with the pepper relish.
Chicken Breast Nuggets ($7.99)
Donut Breaded Chicken Breast Nuggets served with Dannon Danimals Smoothie and Carrot Sticks, choice of Small Lowfat Milk or Small Dasani Water
It may look a little small here, but there were over 12 of these nuggets in this box, most buried under a mountain of french fries. Considering an order of french fries is $4.99, this is a tremendous value since it came with about the same amount of fries while also offering a meal. Needless to say, we opted for fries and a soda over the traditional accompaniments Disney lists on the menu.
I can’t begin to describe how much I enjoyed these donut-crusted chicken breast nuggets. The mix of sweet donut-flavor with salty chicken breast nuggets is a pretty perfect combination. I don’t know if kids will love these, but I’m pretty sure a lot of adults will, leading this to maybe become an entree here or elsewhere at Disney World.
UPDATE: As of October 29th, an adult order is now available for $9.99, doubling the amount of chicken and accompanied by fries. No drink is included with the adult meal.
Pumpkin Pie Shake ($7.50)
Vanilla Gelato blended with Milk, Pumpkin Pie Filling with Pumpkin Spice, Caramel Sauce, and crushed Graham Crackers, topped with Whipped Cream and a sprinkle of Pumpkin Spice
You get what is advertised here as the shake tastes like a liquefied version of pumpkin pie. If you love pumpkin pie, I think one of these is going to be a must order and is likely worth the visit to D-Luxe Burger alone.
Overall, you have another 3 winning options at D-Luxe Burger should you choose to eat there on your next visit to Disney Springs.
