REVIEW: Loaded Latke Doesn’t Live Up to Its Name at Smokejumpers Grill for Disney California Adventure Festival of Holidays 2019

This year, Disney California Adventure has branched off from just holiday booths to include food at restaurants as well to celebrate the Festival of Holidays. Smokejumpers got into the spirit with a loaded latke.

As you can tell, this isn’t quite as elegant as the picture advertises. We were struggling to find the smoked brisket. The two pieces of brisket we did find, we enjoyed.

The potato cake was fried crispy and had good texture and we loved the horseradish sauce on top, which wasn’t spicy at all. There were just far too many green onions and not enough meat to make this worth the price.
