*NEW* Duck Confit Poutine with Fig Demi Sauce and Brie Cheese Fondue – $8.49

Duck Confit Poutine with Fig Demi Sauce and Brie Cheese Fondue, $8.49

I was very nervous about this dish, however it was a pleasant surprise. Most “poutine” you get at WDW comes with those white clumps of cheese curd with some sort of gravy on soggy fries. This was NOT that. The fries were cooked well, keeping some of the crispness despite being covered in duck and cheese. The brie cheese fondue worked much better here, and there was a generous portion of the fries, making for plenty of gooey delicious bites. Lastly, the duck––it was good! The brie cheese dominated most of what you taste in this dish, so instead of the brie cheese complimenting the duck, the duck complimented the brie cheese fondue pretty nicely.

*NEW* Barbecue Bloody Mary with Smoked Garlic Sausage and House-made Pickle Skewer served with a Mustard and Barbecue Rub Rim – $16.00

First, when you read “mustard and barbeque rim” on your drink; you don’t exactly get excited, however the rim was a perfect compliment to this pretty standard Bloody Mary. One other note on this drink; the smoked garlic sausage served on the skewer with the drink was a delightful surprise. A bite of that sausage followed by a big sip of the bloody mary was perfect for starting the day!
