Let's Dish With Linda Lou

Where You Taste The Love

Jaleo, Disney Springs

2019-07-03 17.08.24

Steve and I received a gift from Melissa last year for reservations at Jaleo to celebrate our anniversary. Jaleo, Disney Springs, his fifth restaurant is owned by the esteemed chef José Andrés. Most of you probably know chef José by all the amazing work he does feeding people during hard times. Recently he’s been spending a lot of time in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria.

Presently, chef José has found ways to help feed people during New York City’s shut down over the COVID-19 Pandemic which has had our whole country on pause. This man, a great humanitarian, may very well be talked about when we look back at this time in our history.

“Shelter in place” is how our country is dealing with containing the spreading of this horrible virus. This means no going out staying at home. With the exception of the bank, grocery store, pharmacy, or to get gas that’s what life has become, at least for a while.

We are all practicing “social distancing”, staying six feet apart to help stop the spread of this virus that’s taking the lives of so many people.

I want to thank all the healthcare workers, doctors, nurses, cleaning staff at all the hospitals, first responders, firemen, and police for all their heroism in fighting this virus.

Once this is all over and things get back to some kind of normalcy I hope you will visit Jaleo, Disney Springs, located at 1482 E Buena Vista Dr. Orlando, FL. 32830 or visit https://disneyworld.disney.go.com.

Here’s a peek into mine and Steve’s anniversary celebration.

Melissa bought me this Fall Festival cake, what a surprise! One thing I need to let you know when you’re visiting Disney Springs during the EPCOT Food And Wine Festival, always check in with the information center. Ask if they have a special map showing all of the places, at the Springs, offering Fall Food Festival goodies.

What’s really interesting about this appetizer is the Pear Mignonette. Normally the Mignonette is a shallot vinaigrette but this one is done with pears. Delicious!!!

Disney Springs 2017

The Boathouse - Disney Springs (5)

This year, when my daughter came to visit, I didn’t think we could top our adventures from the previous year. I was wrong! Before leaving for our Colorado vacation, we spent the entire day at Disney Springs.

We started out our day at The Boathouse.  A restaurant that overlooks the water, and has a bar set up at the end of its dock. Relaxing by the water, taking in the magnificent view, and enjoying a cocktail.

Dinner with family and friends was at Morimoto Asia.  I’d been there before and knew that my friends would love it, and they did! The food was delicious and the restaurants’ decor was simply candy for the eyes.

After an amazing dinner, we walked around. We listened to music, saw sidewalk performers, then, made our way to Paddlefish.  A little trivia, many years ago, this riverboat is known as, Paddlefish, was once named Empress Lilly.

Disney Springs was just magical. Enjoying time with family and good friends. Watching the sunset over the water then seeing it disappear into the horizon was beautiful.  Disney Springs flipped its magical switch, and all the many lights came on. The sparkle of the lights reflecting over the water was simply breathtaking.
