REVIEW: Tasty Mahi Mahi and Spicy Coconut Curry Tofu at Olivia’s Cafe in Disney’s Old Key West Resort
Greetings from Disney’s Old Key West Resort! It’s been a while since we’ve stopped at Olivia’s Cafe for dinner, so we thought we’d try a few options that we hadn’t before.
Naturally, we started with the classic rolls and butter, then it was on to a pair of tantalizing entrees.
Captain Wahoo’s Catch of the Day — Market Price
When we visited, the catch of the day was breaded mahi mahi topped with a mango salsa and served over grits with brussels sprouts. While we usually expect sides to be pretty forgettable, the brussels sprouts were excellently prepared, and the grits were creamy and rich.
The salsa really helped the mahi mahi shine. It was the perfect marriage of bold seafoody flavor and tangy salsa. The fish comes in two thick pieces, making this a huge meal for the price.
West Indian Tofu and Coconut Curry — $22.00
For those who prefer their meals on the spicier side, we also tried the West Indian Tofu and Coconut Curry, which is listed as “crispy tofu in a creamy Caribbean curry with roasted sweet potatoes, marinated tomatoes, grilled broccolini, and cilantro.”
Somehow, our dish wasn’t quite what was advertised. The tomatoes were missing, while it had edamame, onions, and and red peppers that weren’t on the menu. That said, it was far from disappointing. The tofu wasn’t breaded; instead, it was nicely seared and spiced.
The curry is very spicy, so if you’re someone who doesn’t like excessively hot dishes, this might not be the one for you. There’s supposed to be cilantro in the dish, but we couldn’t really taste it. Still, it’s a solid option for people looking for a plant-based entrée.
