Welcome to the place where your two bloggers ask each other one question each week. We hope you enjoy them as your learn a bit more about us – sometimes we even learn more about each other!
Ray’s question to Karen:
Q: What is your favorite chain restaurant?
A: I have that narrowed down to two. Tupelo Honey is a restaurant that started in Asheville, but has now expanded. We have a location in Greenville that you have been to, but it doesn’t feel like a chain. I think that may be because ours was only the fourth restaurant that was opened. The other would be Firebirds, which I love. It is one of those restaurants that I occasionally veer off and order something different, but the other 90% of the time it is the same. Kobe Beef Meatloaf!
Karen’s Question to Ray:
Q: What is your favorite Disney restaurant?
A: That is a tough one – we have many we enjoy! The best I can do is narrow it down to three different favorites in three different categories!
- Best sentimental memory – Chefs de France in Epcot’s France pavilion. The first time I ever went to Disney with Lori was before we were married and her birthday happened to be the same week. We ate there on her birthday and we still talk about the time that I “took her to Paris” for her birthday!
- Best food – Le Cellier Steakhouse in Epcot’s Canada pavilion. It isn’t always easy to get a reservation and it wasn’t until our second trip – this time on our honeymoon – that we managed to get one. For me, the food definitely lived up to the hype and it was one of the nicest dinners we shared as we celebrated our new marriage.
- Best breakfast – ‘Ohana at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. I know everyone talks about breakfast at Chef Mickey’s and while it is fun and definitely an experience everyone should have at least once, the breakfast at ‘Ohana is far better in my opinion. You immediately learn, if you don’t already know, that ‘Ohana means family and that is exactly how the very friendly staff treat you from start to finish. The food is delicious and you are served in what I like to call “reverse buffet style,” meaning they bring a sample of everything they serve to your table instead of you going up to the buffet. The first time we ate there was memorable not only for the experience, but also for it being our son’s first trip to Disney.
