14 days DDP dining report Sept 2011

Hi guys,

When we were over last September I decided I was going to do a dining report and duly took loads of photos and even wrote mini reports on my phone in the evening! Of course when we got home and the reality of not going this year hit I sunk into depression and have only now been able to face the thought!
Anyway I'm going to give it a go. I'm not a "foodie" although I do like my food so I'm not great at describing but everyone just wants to see the photos anyway, don't they?

The first few reports I'll do in one go as I don't have photos.

Holiday Inn Glasgow Airport - we decided just to eat here for easiness but I had a bit of an upset stomach so only had water. It was very expensive. A bowl of soup was 6! In the end my sister Marie had a starter (one of those sharing ones) and a diet coke and the bill came to 15. Can't comment too much on that!
Drum and Monkey Glasgow Airport - standard airport fare. I had bacon, eggs and toast which filled a hole. Marie had a roll & sausage. Nothing exciting.
Virgin Atlantic - I watched the stewardess all the way up offering people mac & cheese and decided I was having it when Marie took the last one! I think I ended up with sausage and mash. Typical airline food. I passed on the sandwich later which Marie declared "alright".

Our first DDP meal was at Goods to Go, OKW. We were starved after having problems with the check-in process (they sent us to a studio someone else was in!). I chose the burger and Marie the hot dog which we enjoyed. Desserts were carrot cake and brownie that lay in the fridge and then got thrown out after a few days! The carrot cake at CS places tends to be a bit dry if you don't eat it straight away.
We also bought our refillable mugs.

So first full day was AK and we had an 8.05 reservation for Tusker House. Unfortunately by stomach upset was still lingering so I couldn't really take advantage. Good breakfast food with a mixture of unusual dishes which I wasn't game to try. Lovely Jungle juice! I'd love to have had a bottle to take away! Good character interaction, they all came round and took enough time to shake hands, give kisses and have photos taken.
Buffet photos can look a bit odd (maybe disgusting is the word!) but here goes!

Due to our early start we managed all the rides we wanted to do by 11am. We decided to do the jungle trek and check out the shops to kill time until our lunch ADR at Yak & Yeti. Our res was for 1 pm but we were starting to get hungry around 12 so we headed to Y&Y to see if they'd take us early which they did.
We both ordered the fruit punch which was a bit too cherry. For entree Marie had the Crispy Honey Chicken with jasmine rice and I had the Baby Back Ribs which came with hoisin BBQ sauce, chicken fried rice and sweet chilli slaw. The honey chicken was too sweet and it didn't take long to get sick of it, the punch didn't help. The ribs came with chicken fried rice which was just ok but the "slaw" was nice. The ribs were nice with plenty of meat that fell away from the bone. I'd have liked more hoisin and less BBQ but again my dodgy tummy meant I couldn't really give it a fair judgement. The fruit punch didn't help here either as the BBQ sauce was sweet too.
Desserts were the mango pie - lovely but I couldn't finish and the Fried Wontons - skewers of pineapple and cream cheese wontons with vanilla ice cream and honey vanilla drizzle . I had such high hopes for the skewers but they were really disappointing. They tasted like deep fried Philadelphia which I suppose is what they were!

Although we didn't love the food the Yak & Yeti is definitely somewhere I'd want to try again. There were so many things I wanted to try!

Since we'd had a table service at lunch dinner was Wolfgang Puck's Express. We decided to share a margherita pizza and penne bolognaise (we've done this a few times). Both were really nice although they put peas and carrots in the bolognaise which I'm not a fan of. Dessert was a choc chip cookie which we ate in the room later with a coffee and it was lovely - the best choc chip cookies I think I've had! No picture of the cookie on this occasion. WPE is still the best use of a CS credit.
