So, we chatted a few weeks ago about a food trend that seems to be taking Disney World by storm — trios! And we’ve found another new menu trio over at the Rose & Crown Restaurant that we thought was pretty great — almost as good as the English Bulldog!!
While the Yorkshire Dales was definitely on the tip of my tongue to order, that appetizer trio is new on the menu since my last visit, and I couldn’t wait to try it. It included Rose & Crown’s delicious Potato & Leek Soup — a strong contender for my favorite soup on property, scotch eggs, and Beef Pasties. The trio comes “to share,” so there’s two of everything — perfect when you don’t want someone stealing any of your soup!!!
First, I dug into that delectable soup. That stuff is cream + butter + salt + cream + butter + salt + essence of potato and leek I’m pretty sure, and it. is. divine. But soon I had to switch my attention to the scotch egg, which I’d never tried before.
See, I’m not a huge fan of boiled eggs, but I couldn’t really pass up the chance to sample this. I mean, it’s wrapped in sausage meat and then it’s deep-fried! How could that possibly be bad?
And it wasn’t bad. It was quite good. We’re pretty much scotch egg converts now. But I’m looking forward to hearing from any UK residents out there who can tell me how much this is an “approximation” of a scotch egg. What’s missing and/or different from what you get at home?
Then it was on to the final piece of the trio — the beef pasty. Now, once again, how can you go wrong with beef and veg in a buttery pastry?! Delicious.
So I’m eager to see who else has tried this — and who wants to try it! Since this meal, we’ve been counting the days until we can head back to Rose & Crown. Stay tuned to read all about the “perfect” beer flight we had as well… that one’s coming up soon!
