something new and something not new at Splitsville

This dining experience took place on October 26, 2014

We stopped in the other day at Splitsville and were hungry (walking 3+ miles will do that to you). We both wanted to avoid carbs (after our recent visits where we were a little less pleased with the french fries and the sandwiches). Even so, I went off the deep end and got the shrimp rice bowl.

Now, I have to say that when I’ve seen this coming out of the kitchen, it looked great! Loads of vegetables! Great aromas!

Asian Shrimp Bowl – Grilled shrimp, stir-fry veggies and sushi rice topped with spicy kimchee tatami sauce and green onions

Not what I saw when my bowl was delivered.

I tried to pick out the green peppers, but there wasn’t much of anything else in the bowl

Nick got the Ahi Tuna Salad. Looked great. Tasted great. He was pleased.

The manager saw me picking out the peppers and came over. We explained that we thought there would be vegetables in here. After all, the items that come with a mix of red and green peppers say so. Anyway, he took away my pile of green peppers and my shrimp bowl and returned with one that contained vegetables. Much better! Still a lot of peppers, even some green ones, but they weren’t as overpowering.

Old Key West Holiday Ornaments 2013 - 05

I’d like to point those following “Adults Exploring Disney World” to some of our other FlipBoard magazines… Two reasons (1) this magazine isn’t “active”… I haven’t added new content to it since July 2014 and (2) this particular magazine will “go private” (it will be removed from FlipBoard public areas) at the end of 2014. We really don’t want to lose FlipBoard Subscibers… so here are some other Disney World centric magazines you might like to subscribe to…

These are a few of our Disney World focused magazines…

Or, if you like, we have magazines that have nothing to do with Disney World… Check them out on FlipBoard, we’re known as “Adults Exploring Disney World” over there.

 

Fish & Chips at Splitsville

This dining experience took place on October 24, 2014

Adrienne had mentioned to Nick that the Fish & Chips at Splitsville have some real devotees. We’d never tried them, and one day we gave into our craving for fried carbs and ordered them to share.

Mahi Mahi tempura battered, served with fries, cole slaw and tartar sauce

This isn’t cheap Fish & Chips, the price is around $20 for this entree sized portion.

Mahi Mahi “fish sticks”

The fish was pretty good. Firm, non-fishy pieces of tempura fish. The amount of breading was good, not too heavy. Perfectly acceptable Fish & Chips… Definitely not English Fish & Chips though (go to Raglan Road if you want “traditional” fish & chips, and even their chips don’t come close to the chips we get in the Northeast of England).

Cole Slaw

The cole slaw and tartar sauce were surprisingly good. We’re cole slaw snobs (we like mine and everything else is second best or worst). Not too much mayo, no weird vegetables populating the slaw, and a good touch of acid. We ended up using some of the tartar sauce for our french fries (sorry, I can’t keep calling them chips)… it seemed to be pretty simple tartar sauce = mayo and pickles.

As I said, this was pretty good. But the calories aren’t worth it when we can get better Fish & Chips at Raglan Road Pub further along at Downtown Disney.

We often stop in at Splitsville for a bite to eat and a leisurely drink. On this day, we ordered the Alfredo Roll (which we’ve had before) and Sashimi (which we’ve had numerous times, remember? Splitsville won our sashimi challenge earlier this year).
