Disney Food Pics of the Week: Creme Brulee

Creme brulee is one of those desserts that’s found on almost every Disney signature dining restaurant. Made with a custard base and heated, hardened sugar on top, the creme brulee can take on many different flavors. It’s almost like a blank canvas for dessert!

    My DW is a Crème Brûlée connoisseur of sorts, and she swears the Pistachio Crème Brûlée at Jiko is the best on the planet, bar none. Must be, I can usually get a bite of her dessert, but never at Jiko.

    Creme Brulee is one of my all time favorite desserts. I actually think it edges out chocolate. My most favorite version of this delish treat is found at LeCellier. The Maple Creme Brulee is to die for!!! Hands down, one of the best versions I’ve ever eaten…and that’s saying a lot!

  3. Griffin says

    I absolutely love Creme Brulee! My fav is probably at Wolfgang Puck Express in DTD. Least fav would be found at Boulangerie Patisserie. (Tasted more like whipped cream then anything else) Either way, this is what I get most often for dessert :)

  4. Pudge the Fish says

    I love a great creme brulee also. Le Cellier quickly came to mind but anywhere that offers a vanilla bean version is fine by me. As noted WPE in DTD does offer a nice one, and off hand I can not think of anywhere else on property that would offer creme brulee as a dessert option as part of a quick service meal.

    This is my fiance’s favourite type of dessert! .. he ordered the ‘double vanilla bean creme brulee’ at the Hollywood Brown Derby on a recent trip.. and declared it was the best brulee he’d ever had :)

  6. Alan says

    These all are great examples of creme brulee. My all time favorite was served at the Steerman’s Quarters in the old Empress Lily back in the eighties and early ninties before it became Fulton’s Crab House. I will admit it was the first time I ever had this dish, so my memories of it are probably a bit skewed. It is a great dessert because it is satisfying without piling a large amount of sweets on top of a large and filling diner.

    Keith — I haven’t tried the Pistachio creme brulee, yet! Would love to!

    Rikki and Heather — We love the Maple version as well; just had it last week!

    Griffin — I’ve never had the WP version!! Will have to sample.

    Carolyn — Indeed!

    Pudge — Agreed. WPE is a great value for a counter-service spot!

    Emma — Everything at the Brown Derby is the best I’ve ever had ;-)

    Alan — What a cool memory! Thanks for sharing that. Wish you had a pic. :-)

    Melissa — Check out our “how to find a recipe” section — I’m SURE you’ll find some great WDW creme brulee recipes around.

    Believe it or not, the best creme brulee I’ve had in WDW was, surprisingly enough, in the Sunshine Seasons food court in The Land pavillion. There’s a wonderful desert station there and the creme brulee was HUGE. Much bigger than what you normally get in a little dish at some fancy restaurant and it was delicious. On top of that, you can get it for a snack credit on the DDP!

  9. Brandi says

    We had a pistachio creme brulee at the Fireworks Party at Magic Kingdom in June. It was absolutely, delicious!!!

  10. says

    Creme Brulee is one of the few things that I know how to make from scratch. The most fun part would have to be the torching it.

    What seems to give it the main flavor is the base ingredient and the item that is put on top (usually sugar).

    The Pistachio Creme Brulee sounds pretty good! I wonder if I can eat it…

  11. Steph M says

    Just wanted to let you know that the Pistachio Creme Brulee at Jiko is sadly no more. It was removed in September although…they do serve it as a Celebration dessert so if you are celebrating a special occasion you may get lucky and get the opportunity to try it.
