Sleepy Hollow – I have been craving a fried chicken waffle sandwich from Sleepy Hollow ever since I first heard (and saw pics) about the new offering. We headed over here for lunch one afternoon and shared the Sweet and Spicy Chicken sandwich. All I can say is WOW! Hands down one of the best things I ate during the whole trip. The waffle is your standard buttery yummy Mickey waffle served throughout WDW. The fried boneless chicken was a generous portion with a hint of a sweet and spicy sauce. The sandwich also had a creamy, crunchy coleslaw and arugula to top it off. I am in LOVE with this sandwich! You can also find delicious funnel cakes and a Nutella and fruit waffle sandwich. Seating is behind the restaurant in a peaceful, shaded area. Rating A+
For our entrees, I had the Sautéed Shrimp and Scallops served in a puff pastry with a creamy lobster sauce. This was incredibly delicious with plump, juicy shrimp and scallops. The sauce wasn’t too heavy or overwhelming and complimented the seafood perfectly.
My guy had the mouth-watering Grilled Strip Steak served with a delicious garlic herb butter and pommes frites (aka French fries).
For dessert we had a trio of sugary delights, including the strawberry cream cheese cupcake filled with strawberry mousse, the triple chocolate cupcake filled with chocolate mousse and topped with ganache, and the passion fruit cream puff filled with passion fruit mousse. All three desserts were delicate, delicious and freshly baked.
Also, something to note, Be Our Guest is the only place in Magic Kingdom to get your drink on. After our wonderful meal we headed over to take a picture with the large and imposing but very friendly Beast. We had only one family in line in front of us for a nice change of pace. Between the ambiance, the food, the service, the whole experience defines Disney magic – what a Disney vacation experience should be. This is a MUST DO for your next trip – IF you can get a reservation. If not, take advantage of the quick service dining offered for lunch. Hint: If you tell them you are celebrating something special (my daughter turned 15 months the day we were eating there) you will get a special treat – “the grey stuff,” cookies and cream mousse. Try the grey stuff, it is delicious! Rating A++++++
