Authentic Irish Celebration at Mighty St. Patrick’s Festival at Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant at Disney Springs

When celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, forget eating cabbage and corned beef or drinking green beer. Those are not authentic or traditional Irish food or drinks to celebrate Saint Patrick’s day. Instead, celebrate like the Irish at the Mighty St. Patrick’s Festival at Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant at Disney Springs. The Mighty Festival just started on Friday, March 11th and runs for seven days until the big St. Patrick’s Day celebration on Thursday, March 17, 2016. Plenty of time to drink pints of Guinness, eat authentic Irish food and experience live music entertainment and dancers straight from Ireland.   (click image to enlarge) The menu features cuisine by Irish celebrity chef and PBS/Create TV personality Kevin Dundon. Last year I shared my experience from Ireland on our Raglan Road Trip with Chef Kevin. Experiencing the way he creates Irish classics with a modern twist translates into the Irish menu at Raglan Road and is a must try during the Mighty St. Patrick’s Festival. The dinner menu features a special dish, loin of bacon and …

Morimoto Asia Opens at Disney Springs with Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto – Video & Photos

The Orlando restaurant scene just stepped up its game with the grand opening of Morimoto Asia at Disney Springs. Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto is evolving his skills as a restaurateur by opening his first pan-Asian dining experience at Morimoto Asia. This restaurant concept is a collaboration between Chef Morimoto and the Patina Restaurant Group, showcasing flavors from across Asia with an emphasis on China, Japan, Korea, and Thailand.   (click image to enlarge) It isn’t a celebration unless Chef Morimoto shares a sake toast with the crowd. He asks everyone to say kanpai (乾杯) which means “empty cup.”   (click image to enlarge) The ambiance and decor of Morimoto Asia really transformed what used to be Mannequins and 8-Trax.   (click image to enlarge) The orange chicken was lightly battered and not overly sweet. It was nice to experience such a popular dish prepared with influences seen in Japanese cuisine.   (click image to enlarge) Morimoto’s staff presented a 100 pound tuna to the crowd.   (click image to enlarge) Morimoto demonstrates his carving technique …

Chef Kevin Dundon Features Local Seafood On Raglan Road Menu

Chef Kevin Dundon is featuring local seafood on the menu at Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant at Downtown Disney. Earlier this Summer, Chef Kevin took a trip to Wild Ocean seafood in Port Canaveral to check out the local product and he liked it so much that Raglan Road has introduced seasonal dishes on the menu. The “Seasonal Showcase” menu features: Whiskey in a Jar Wild Ocean citrus poached shrimp, whiskey spiked marie rose sauce, diced cucumbers and watercress; El Niño Wild Ocean pan roasted shrimp over soft polenta, in a spiced bean, sweet onion and peppers “Piperada”; The Pale Wild Ocean shrimp and clams with golden corn, baby potatoes in a Raglan IPA lemon & herb broth, and served with soda bread scones.   Fishing with Chef Kevin Dundon in Ireland I’ve gone fishing with Chef Kevin in Ireland and he definitely knows his seafood. The fact that he is using seafood native to Central Florida shows the quality of the local product and his commitment to working with multiple local producers. You …

No need to break the bank to eat well when you can dine at Meatball Bar inside the Portobello restaurant at Downtown Disney.
