Sanaa Dinner Gluten Free Dairy Free

Sanaa Dinner Gluten Free Dairy Free

We enjoyed our Sanaa dinner so much on previous visit that we had to do this again! This is a wonderful treat on the dining plan as we were able to try so many great foods. We did pay the extra for bread service, per […]

Again, I don’t know why I didn’t take meal photos, but there were plenty of safe and enjoyable options for us here. We always like the dessert, which is simple but yummy! This is a great choice for our larger gatherings with little kids because […]

Above is a salad sampler to share.  We loved thew watermelon salad with fennel as well as the chick pea salad in the middle.  The one on the far end was not gluten free, but they did have other gluten free and dairy free options. Our server, Chris, was a wonderful host and Chef Jake was so accommodating.  We had the best dining experience here, as the animals on the savana came up to the glass that adjoined our table.  I can’t recommend this restaurant enough.

My daughter LOVES saag / palak paneer (not dairy free).  This wasn’t on the menu, but the chef offered to make her a gluten free version.  This was so nice of him!

They did offer a coconut rice pudding dessert as well as a mango sorbet, but I was hungry for some vanilla toffuti, and I ordered us a bowl to share.  That was a nice finish to a wonderful meal full of great new foods, fantastic views, a very fun and helpful server and more. Plan to spend some time here and try some of the unique African wine flights.
A final recommendation would be to go early and ask for a table at a window.  If you are prepared to wait for this, you’ll be rewarded with a magical view.
For sure, this is a new family favorite!

We still had counter service credits to use, and since we were staying at Coronado Springs Resort, we decided to take our credits over to Animal Kingdom for breakfast.  The choices were good, and the food safe.  I will say that the gluten free waffle […]

Jiko Animal Kingdom Lodge Dinner

Jiko Animal Kingdom Lodge Dinner

Jiko would be a 2 TS restaurant on the Disney dining plan. The food was really lovely. We ordered salads, and my salad was so delicious! The girls loved the flowers on top.
Bean had a steak with fruit and 2 vegetable sides. This was a wonderful meal for her, and she enjoyed it very much. She said we should ask for the recipe for their steak preparation, because it was so good.
My husband and I both had beef short ribs with Yukon potatoes. I am not certain if this dish was gluten free, but I know it was dairy free (I did ask for clarification on that).
The chef recommended this, so I thought I would try it. It was also very good. My husband reports that for those wanting this tender beef short rib dish that almost the exact same dinner is served at Coral
Reef for 1 table service credit instead of 2. I was beyond full when it came time for dessert, so I passed on this. Bean was able to choose between a rice dream or raspberry sorbet. She chose a small amount of each, and she liked that.
This was very good. I would be inclined to come back, order salads, drinks, and split a dinner with my husband, as the meat servings were so huge!

The Chef offered to make us gluten free pasta, but I declined because there were 6 other people in our group who would be eating buffet right away and I didn’t want to have two of us sitting and waiting. Next time I may think […]

Mara Animal Kingdom Lodge Breakfast

Chef Eddie, at Mara, was wonderful. He made our daughter some gluten free dairy free waffles each morning, and he made me dairy free eggs served with fruit.
This was counter service so we purchased drinks and fruit separately. He was so nice, as were all of the chefs. He always came out to talk to our daughter and to make sure she enjoyed her meal!
