I’ve been noticing some interesting trends at Disney area restaurants lately! I mentioned the gourmet Mac & Cheese trend a while back, but here’s an interesting one that has to do with dessert — flames!
Yep, that’s what I said. Fire. Right there at your table.
Flambeing is certainly nothing new, but to have it as a prevalent show at so many restaurants in the Disney area is pretty interesting. Here are some of the spots where we’ve seen it recently…
Bistro de Paris, Epcot
In the France pavilion of Disney World’s Epcot, Bistro de Paris offers high-end dining in a beautiful second-floor dining room. The view of the fireworks is just a bonus here, as the food and service are incredible.
On our visit, we ordered the Duo de Crepes — one Suzette and one apple. The Suzette was flambeed table-side and caused quite a stir!
Bull and Bear Steakhouse, Waldorf Astoria Orlando
Over at the Bull and Bear, they’ve perfected the art of service and show. Bringing this flaming creme brulee to the table is just the beginning — or should I say “the end!”
The best part? Even more crunchy, crystal-y caramelized sugar for us to enjoy, because the sugar is increased in order to keep the fire burning while the dessert is placed on the table.
Todd English’s bluezoo, Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Resort
Over in the Epcot Resort Area, bluezoo offers an all-chocolate all the time dessert called the Chocolate Melange. As part of this decadent set of mini-desserts, you’ll get a milk chocolate malt creme brulee that comes to the table in flames!
A gorgeous ending to what’s sure to be a wonderful dinner!
Now, I know these aren’t the only places to get a side of fire with your dinner! Have you tried others? Let us know in the comments section below!
