Fresh Mediterranean Market
I recently had the best panini I’ve ever tasted. Seriously. And it was at Fresh — a casual dining restaurant in the Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort (within walking distance of two WDW theme parks!).
Featuring Mediterranean recipes reminiscent of Spain, Italy, France, Greece, and Morocco, Fresh offers simple, flavorful menu options. We chatted in a previous post about the fun new drink offerings that Fresh has dreamed up, and the buffet breakfast has something for everyone.
The a la carte offerings at breakfast and lunch also offer some great choices. Another perk: an unlimited dessert buffet is available to all who order a salad or sandwich from the lunch menu!
On my recent visit, I started with that great new drink — the “Fresh” Extraction, which combines Ketel One Citroen and the fresh juice extracts of Kiwi, Apple, Wheatgrass, Pineapple, Orange, Spinach, and Ginger. Delicious.
At the table, we also ordered the “Fresh” Caesar Salad, with polenta croutons and lemon-garlic dressing (in this order, we added shredded rotisserie chicken) and the Grilled Chicken Panini with mozzarella, pesto, and vinegar peppers.
The Caesar, ordered by my table-mate, looked gorgeous!
But I’m pretty sure my panini blew everything else out of the water that day! It was phenomenal. I know — grilled chicken, pesto, cheese…so what? But, seriously guys, it was wonderful. I searched for another time in the schedule when I could get back to have another one of those! It was savory, flavorful, and the perfect temperature throughout. I also loved the small order of fries that came with it — just big enough to enjoy the taste but not feel overly full.
But what might really catch your eye here is the unlimited dessert buffet. These are only a few of the many offerings that were available when I last visited.
