It’s been exactly a year and a half since our Disney Cruise, and I’ve just realized that I never finished blogging about our trip. Life got in the way a little bit when we got home. (To be clear, I got laid off the day we returned from vacation.) Luckily I found a new job within a few weeks and was fine, but then it was a blur of learning new things, meeting new people, etc. Blogging took a back seat.
Having now realized that I never posted the pics from our amazing evening at Remy, I thought I’d fix that. Problem is, I can’t tell you exactly what it is that we ate. Some of the items are fairly recognizable, and some more memorable than others. But as is often the case with fine dining, the final product doesn’t much resemble the ingredients. And I would be hard-pressed to tell you what these dishes actually tasted like.
So rather than a “review” I’ll give you the pics and let you decide for yourself. My memory of the meal was one of impeccable service, far too much very, very good food, and a very romantic evening with my love. I would do it again in a heartbeat. It was probably my favorite experience on our cruise.
All dressed up and no kids in sight.
A nice couple saw me taking the selfie and stopped to take our pic
The entrance to Remy. Very posh and clubby.
The complimentary Colette cocktail. Champagne, pear vodka, dried apricot, mint, blueberry. Lovely. And check that view!
First, the amuse – tomato soup! This was a Willy Wonka-esque experience. Like a perfect tomato exploding in your mouth.
A lovely, rich foie gras mousse with pistachios
I believe this was pork belly. My husband and I had different dishes.
These were little crab cigars with I believe a yuzu foam.
Maybe a crab gazpacho?
Let’s take a moment to sip our wine and drink in that sunset…
Maybe black cod? I remember I enjoyed it.
I suspect this was duck.
Wow, that’s pretty. Maybe a scallop?
On the left is potato. On the right is lobster. I remember the really dense and unique texture of the potato.
And what goes best with lobster? Yes, a side of lobster.
I’m not entirely sure what this was. Maybe beef? Duck?
I’m almost positive this is beef.
Why yes of COURSE we’ll have the cheese course. Roll over the cart. We’re not nearly full enough.
This wine was delicious.
Oooh, pretty! Probably chocolate mousse.
This was my dessert, but I could not tell you what it was. Just that I loved the Mondrian design.
Awww…they brought me a rose.
Oh yes, and two more desserts to go, in case we got hungry on our way back to our room.
I forgot how amazing this was. I want to go back!
