La Creperie de Paris


October 1st was a special day at Walt Disney World Resort as it kicked off the Most Magical Celebration for the 50th anniversary of the parks in Florida.  While many people flocked to the Magic Kingdom, we made our way over to Epcot as it was also the grand opening of Remy's Ratatouille Adventure and La Creperie de Paris in the France Pavilion in World Showcase.

This new area is a stunning addition to the already beautiful pavilion, and since it is new, the area is definitely seeing its fair share of traffic right now.  La Creperie has a quick service window for crepes to go, but we opted for the full table service experience for our first time here.  We arrived at park opening and after about a 20 minute wait we were escorted to our table and greeted by our server who was absolutely fantastic.  Honestly, all of the Cast Members we were to encounter on this day were going to be wonderful, but he definitely got us off on the right foot.  

We decided to go all in and did the Prix Fixe Menu each, for $33 for three courses and a beverage, it seemed like a great deal to us! Our sparkling ciders came in no time, but we also saw plenty of people kicking off their day with mimosas as well which would be a great pairing to this meal too.  We chose a demi sec and a rose, and both were delightful.  We went with a soup and a salad to start, and then let our server guide us to the best crepe options to order and were on our way to a three course breakfast.
Salade Maison: mixed greens, tomatoes (no tomatoes) onions & vinaigrette
Soupe du Jour: it was potato and leek today

The salad was crisp and refreshing with just the right amount of dressing.  Nothing too fancy at all, which was really just lovely.  The soup was comforting yet surprisingly light on flavor, setting you up for the meal ahead.  Also, I really just loved the bowl it was served in.

In no time it was time for another round of drinks and our savory crepes, otherwise known as galettes.  These are made with a buckwheat flour which I enjoyed, but if you prefer a lighter crepe you can request they be made with the dessert crepe batter.  We ordered the Chevre and the Savoyarde but the Classique was also recommended and seemed to be very popular and well liked as well from tables around us.  

Savoyarde: raclette cheese, onion, imported Bayonne ham
Chevre: goat cheese, spinach, walnuts

Both of these crepes were honestly so good, but for me the star was the savoyarde.  That imported ham was just something special and really elevated the whole dish.  The crepes weren't overly filled so there was a great balance between filling and crepe with every bite with familiar yet unique flavors.  The walnuts on the chevre dish added a great bit of crunch and texture as well.

While we were already starting to get full, it was time for our sweet crepes to come.  We once again went with our server's recommendations and went with the Gourmande and the Melba, adding a shot of Grand Marnier to the Melba for a little extra kick.  You can also add whipped cream or ice cream to any crepe for an additional charge as well. 

Melba: peach, red berries sauce, almonds
Gourmande: hazelnut chocolate spread, whipped cream
Once again both choices were really wonderful, and overall we were so impressed with our meal here.  For me, the Gourmande edged out the Melba because I like chocolate and the little crispies on top really did it for me.  The grand marnier added a great depth of flavor to the Melba though and they were certainly not stingy with that extra shot at all! 

The atmosphere is casual and relaxed yet nice, the service was spectacular, and the food was wonderful and at a great price point.  We left feeling stuffed and ready to tackle the day at Epcot.  I would highly recommend this restaurant based on this experience and will definitely be making a trip back in the future!

Paddlefish Restaurant at Disney Springs

After arriving in Walt Disney World around dinnertime with no reservations on our latest trip, we headed over to Disney Springs to see what was available and Paddlefish caught our eye with the beautiful boat shining on the water.  There was space for us at the bar where they serve the full menu, so we settled right in for what was about to be a delicious dinner. We started with cocktails and were very impressed by not only the cocktail selection, but also the bartender's knowledge and expertise on the menu to guide us through our selections tonight.  At the recommendation of the staff, we had to give the Lobster Corn Dogs a try for our appetizer.  These were so fun and very delicious (and I don't normally like lobster!) They are most like a corn dog in that they are on a stick, but don't let that stop you from giving these a try.  Next up it was time for our entrees, we both opted for options "from the port" since we were in a seafood inspired restaurant, we could
