Time To Go Back

So I randomly opened my Disney reference book to the food section, and landed in Epcot. This time it is the UK's Rose & Crown, and Mexico's San Angel Inn.

My husband and I have have been on a mission to eat at all the WDW table-service restaurants, and we only have about 10 to go. So, since we've been working on this goal for several years, it has been awhile since we've been to these two spots.

First, the R&C. I was afraid to go in here -- you know, bangers and mash, kidney pie. But we did, and I think I was able to order something fairly uneventful! I do remember liking the surroundings and feel of the place, but actually don't remember the food.

We've eaten in Mexico several times. Obviously it's a cool environment, being in the low light and on the water of the boat ride. But I remember the tables being pretty jammed together. And the food seemed to be pretty authentic, rather than Americanized. And since I am not a very adventurous eater, once again, nothing stands out as something I loved.

Needless to say -- I really should go back to these two -- but it will have to be after we finish all the others that are still on our list!

I bet you are wondering which ones are still on the list. Here they are:

(1) Norway
(2) Germany
(3) Yak & Yeti
(4) Cap'N Jack's (Downtown Disney)
(5) T-Rex
(6) Wolfgang Puck
(7) Shutters - Caribbean Beach
(8) The Wave - Contemporary
(9) Trail's End -- I feel like I've eaten here, but have no proof!
(10) Maya Grill - Coronado Springs
(11) Victoria & Albert's -- Yes, that will be the last one -- Our reward!!!

I've been trying to eat at every table service restaurant for several years now, but with a family goes with the same old, same old, it's pretty hard.

R&C is pretty good. I love sitting out on the patio when the weather is nice and the food is great.

However, I'm not a fan of San Angel. First of all, I don't like Mexican food. Having said that, I don't like the fact that you are practically eating in the dark and your are packed in there like sardines. If you can get a seat by the pyramid and the rides, it would be pretty cool, but other than that, I say keep your money. You can always sit inside the pavillion for a while if you like the atmosphere.

Cool. I would like to do that. The kids just don't like some of the stuff in some of the others we want to go to.
How are you?
