  • Tale As Old AS TIME Time - Red Rose Tavern and Maurice's Treats Open

    Headed to get week 2 AP Days buttons and build your own floats when we heard Red Rose Tavern and Maurice's Treats had their Tale As Old AS Time soft openings.

    First stop, Maurice's Treats where we tried the new Grey stuff twist and Grey Stuff Dipping sauce. The new twist has a chocolate/cookie taste but was light and flaky. The dipping sauce is a creamy mousse that tastes very much like oreos. It complimented the twist but I could easily eat entire cups full of this on its own.

    Next we headed to the Red Rose Tavern (Pinocchio Village Tavern) which has yet to be made over into its full decor but has soft opened the entire new menu with antler horns on the corners. The lines were large and service was slow as they haven't quite found their groove for the extended menu. It was packed with people excited to try the new items. We ordered the chicken sandwich, poutine Flatbread and Grey Stuff Gateaux. It took 20 minutes to get the food but once we did I have to say we were not disappointed.

    Here's my thoughts on each:

    Chicken Sandwich A LA Lumiere - sweet, salty and a little spicy this sandwich is one of the better new food offerings at DLR. The bacon onion jam was delicious and I would put it on anything. I did not care for the new Parmesan garlic fries that came with the sandwich but that's cos they were cold. Maybe they will be better when fresh. 8/10 Click image for larger version  Name:	chicken sandwich 2.jpg Views:	1 Size:	22.9 KB ID:	8494389

    Poutine Flatbread - Easily my favorite new dish at DLR. You must try it. The gravy and slow cooked beef aren't too salty and the Flatbread was crispy and cooked well. The pickled onions add the tang needed to bring it all together and surprisingly the French fries work well. I would order this anytime. 10/10 Click image for larger version  Name:	poutine flatbread 1.jpg Views:	1 Size:	22.2 KB ID:	8494390


    Grey Stuff Gateaux - completely different to the Walt Disney world Grey stuff...the cookie mousse outer layer hides a surprisingly moist red velvet cake and raspberry coulis that is tangy and a little sour but not in a puckering way They all work really well together and aren't cloyingly sweet. The real let down is the cookie base. It was dry and flavorless. Lumiere was right. The Grey stuff is delicious. 8/10

    overall a total success. I need to go back and try other items but it's going to be hard to top that flatbread. Check it out!!!

      My trip is more than 6 months away, this could be all gone, by then. I hope not.

          By any chance did you notice if they have an allergy menu?

            Not related necessarily but I ate at Tortilla Joe's last night and they surprisingly had a number, 10-15, of gluten free items on their menu. A tip for that place, go upstairs and sit at the bar. Same menu, rarely any wait at all.

              We haven't eaten there yet, but every time we've walked by one of us has said "We gotta eat there!". I think for us as 'long distance' tourists (No Cal) who make one or two trips a year, we're loath to give up 'park time' to eat at DTD. Most of our meals at DTD have been on our arrival or departure days which are usually non-park days.

                I see, makes sense.

                  Even though we were still pretty full from having lunch at the Carthay Circle restaurant, mom and I decided to have dinner there to give it a try. I had the slow cooked beef poutine and my mom had the pulled pork flatbread....both were very tasty, though I had them not put the pickled onions on mine.

                    Thanks! Especially for the inside pic of the cake! Unfortunately they were out of the grey stuff gateaux when I went, but the lemon rose cake was a pleasant and delicate surprise. It's a very light, creamy custard/pudding with just a hint of lemon above a chocolatey cookie bottom with little crunchy chocolate balls and a berry compote type filling.

                    The slow cooked beef poutine fries are great (portion is fine but could be a little bigger for the price). My complaint is that it was fairly cold; quick service does not need to be that quick.

                      Um... That's a cardboard platter for the dessert to be build on.
