Grilled Street Corn on the Cob with Savory Garlic Spread – $5.75

The seasoning on this corn on the cob is good, but nothing special. Corn on the cob is usually street food for fairs and flea markets, so it feels like there was a lack of effort/ingenuity in creating a dish for this booth. They could’ve done sliders or something, we don’t know. At the end of the day this is just… corn. At least it takes a good photo.

Seared Verlasso® Salmon with Farro Risotto and Micro Herbs – $6.25

We’re picky about our salmon dishes, but we highly recommend this one! The salmon was cooked perfectly and flaked apart easily when cut with our fork. The salmon is served over a scoop of farro risotto and micro herbs. The farro risotto was packed full of flavor flavor including some hints of sweet citrus, rightfully earning this dish’s spot at the Flavor Full Kitchen. The farro risotto was so good that we would happily eat it alone, but when paired with the salmon, it’s heavenly.

*NEW* Strawberry Mousse with Chocolate Crisp Pearls – $4.75

The strawberry mousse is an excellent dessert option. It comes gorgeously plated, complete with a gummy worm on top to add some fun. The mousse is served coated in a sugar crust, which adds some crunchy texture to an otherwise creamy dessert. The mousse is simple and similar to other mousse cakes you’ll find around Disney Parks, but that doesn’t diminish its deliciousness. The mousse’s strawberry flavoring is light, but the fresh strawberries served on the side help to boost the fruitiness. The cookie crumbles add some chocolate to the plate and compliment the strawberry mousse nicely.

Blood Orange Agua Fresca (Non-Alcoholic) – $4.50

This is basically just fruit punch by any other name. It could’ve been Kool-Aid for all we know.

Cookie Butter Worms and Dirt (Non-Alcoholic) – $4.75

This was one of the most interesting and fun things they’ve done in a while. Lots of guests were curious at this nostalgic dessert-turned-drink, because it really is the liquefied version of it. This would make a good kid-approved item since it’s so fun. The cookie butter really shines in this and gives it a very memorable, enjoyable taste. It has a slightly thicker consistency than a chocolate milk, but not by much. When you manage to get a sip with a cookie crumble in there, it’s pretty amazing. Definitely get this.
