We’ve got all sorts of Disney Food Truck happenings going on this week!
With the debut of the all-new Trucks on the Town Event, along comes a new item to the Fantasy Fare Food Truck: Sticky Chicken and Waffles! I gave it a go on my recent trip to Disney World, and thought you might like a peek…
These “delightful dishes” include the Grilled Ham and Cheese (this is the Croque Monsieur, brought to us from Be Our Guest Restaurant), and the famed Hand-dipped Corn Dog from Disneyland (I grabbed that one, too; YUMMMMM!).
Sticky Chicken and Waffles is the most recent addition, replacing the Glass Noodle Salad (a noodle entrée with chicken and pickled vegetables from Hong Kong Disneyland, served cold). The Sticky Chicken and Waffles are inspired by the waffle sandwiches in Magic Kingdom’s Sleepy Hollow. Which. We. Love.
Unlike Sleepy Hollow’s Sweet and Spicy Chicken Waffle Sandwich, which incorporate a chicken breast into one huge, folded waffle (you know, like a sandwich ), here we have two breaded chicken tenders on top of two smaller waffles (the same kind they use at the Epcot Food and Wine Festival Belgium Booth).
So, what makes ‘em so sticky? Well, they don’t hold back on the sweet and spicy sauce here at Fantasy Fare, either! And the white sauce reminded me of the tangy slaw dressing on the Sleepy Hollow version.
I’m still all about the Chicken Waffle Sandwich (especially since that runs around $7.50 to this version’s $11…and the sammy is SUPA bigger), but it’s nice to know there’s now a place to get your waffle fix in Downtown Disney!
It would be cool to see the menu options at Fantasy Fare continue to change from time to time to reflect other items in Disney parks around the world… as long as they keep the Hand-dipped Corn Dog, that is .
Will you be stopping by the Fantasy Fare Food Truck to try the Chicken and Waffles? Please let us know with a comment!
