REVIEW: Hollywood Brown Derby Celebrates 50 Years of Walt Disney World with Filet & Walt’s Roast Beef Hash, Unusual Baked Alaska at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
We have been covering the numerous entrees and treats available for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary. The Hollywood Brown Derby at Disney’s Hollywood Studios has two new menu items for the celebration. We tried the Filet Mignon with Walt Disney’s Roast Beef Hash and the 50th Celebration Baked Alaska.
Filet Mignon with Walt Disney’s Roast Beef Hash — $49
Haricots Verts, Red Wine Sauce served Walt’s way with a Fried Egg (For Gluten/Wheat, Fish, Peanut/Tree Nut, and Soy Allergies)
This dish is right out of Walt Disney’s Hollywood. Those expecting a modern filet will be surprised.
Everything delivers a smoky flavor, both the exterior of the filet and the hash.
The filet is not as tender as guests may be accustomed to. The filet’s interior is still very soft and much more flavorful than the usual Brown Derby filet.
Again, the hash delivers a charred taste. Order this dish only if you like charred flavor. The green beans were well- seasoned and cooked. The egg is a nice addition as well. We loved this dish.
50th Celebration Baked Alaska — $12
Layers of Strawberry-Basil Sorbet, Vanilla Gelato, and Sponge Cake coated in Toasted Meringue and Caramelized Brownie Bites
This is baked Alaska, but we want to start by mentioning the caramelized brownie bites.
The brownie bites deliver a rich chocolate flavor in a most cake bite. They are wonderful.
The baked Alaska is hard to cut, but worth it in the end.
The meringue is perfectly toasted, sticky, and sweet.
The meringue covers a rich vanilla gelato.
The gelato is offset by an unexpected strawberry basil sorbet. The sorbet is refreshing with real strawberry flavor that does not overpower. This dessert is special because it is a unique take on a classic. This is a must try.
