Singapore Is Still SO Misunderstood!

When it comes to Singapore’s highlight dish – their Seared Mahi-Mahi – I believe this island country IS misunderstood.

As for their Lemongrass Chicken Curry … well, I think you need to watch our appearance on Rick Howard’s Travel with Rick video podcast reviewing Singapore and read my Final Top 25 review of this culinary offering.  Did it pass muster?

Next year, we need to see Butter Chicken, Singapore.

But FIRST, check out my preview of Singapore’s marketplace on Kingdom Magic Vacations’ Blog.  What did I expect from this kiosk?  What pre-festival grade did I give them?

Friends, have you been to Food & Wine?  If so, please leave a comment and tell me how you GRADED this much-maligned kiosk.  I would love to know what you thought of their 2013 effort.

Enjoying Singaporean Cuisine?

Good morning, folks!  Hey, here’s a riddle for you.  What do they say in Singapore when it’s raining?  Hah!  Read on for the answer.  Wink, wink.

You’ve heard me report it a couple of times now.  Rick Howard, President of Kingdom Magic Vacations and host of the Travel with Rick video-cast, is spending the whole month of October covering each and every Food & Wine ’13 marketplace.

Well, jump over to Travel with Rick to see Mrs. All in WDW and myself engage Rick in a playful bout of banter and repartee’ as we enjoy Singaporean cuisine.

Is Singapore misunderstood? Did they step their cuisine up from years past? Will Rick admit that Singapore’s 2013 Food & Wine effort will exceed that of Scotland? What wager did we finally settle upon? Did we enjoy the Singapore Sling? Check out All in WDW on Travel with Rick!

Oh, and the riddle … I have to tell you, the Cast Members in Singapore are the masters of corn-ball jokes. As they served us their chicken curry, they quipped, “No need to worry, here’s your chicken curry!” Yeah, corn-ball.

So what do they say in Singapore when it’s raining? “It’s Singa-pouring!” Har, har, har. Ba-dum, dum.

Don’t hold it against us, fans. Go watch the show!!

Food & Wine ’13 Scouting Report: Australia

Just how much does Mrs. All in WDW love those lamb chop “lollipops”?

If you missed it yesterday, Rick Howard, President of Kingdom Magic Vacations and host of the Travel with Rick video-cast, invited us to join him on his quest to cover each and every Food & Wine ’13 marketplace in the month of October.  That found us smack dab in the middle of Australia!

Before we got there, however, I took a shot at an advanced review of the Aussies’ 2013 effort.  What grade did I give them?  Read my “Food & Wine ’13 Scouting Report: Australia” to find out.  Then, watch the show.  Did they do as well as I expected?

See you tomorrow for … SINGAPORE!

Food & Wine ’13 Scouting Report: Brazil

Hey, everybody!  Did you get a chance to watch yesterday’s show?  What did you think?  We’re dying to know!

If you missed it, Rick Howard, President of Kingdom Magic Vacations and host of the Travel with Rick video-cast, is spending the whole month of October covering each and every Food & Wine ’13 marketplace.  Yesterday, was Brazil … featuring Mrs. All in WDW, and myself!

Our thanks to Rick Howard and his Director of Marketing, John Donahue, for giving us such an incredible opportunity.  See us, again, in a few days as we cross the Pacific Ocean and land in Australia!

In the meantime, yesterday’s show wasn’t our first “visit” to Brazil.  Before the crispy pork belly and seared scallops even hit a plate, I was already busy trying to sort out just how well this marketplace would fare in its return to the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.

You’ve seen the show (hopefully!).  Now, jump over to Kingdom Magic Vacations’ Blog in order to catch my Food & Wine ’13 Scouting Report: Brazil!  Did Brazil meet or exceed my expectations?  Or, did they fall short?  Read the “preview”.  Watch the show.  Only then will you know!

Food & Wine ’13 Scouting Report: Argentina

Good morning, folks!  I’m going to make it short and sweet today …

If you’re a fan of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, then you’re well-aware of the popularity of Argentina’s Beef Empanada and Grilled Beef Skewer.  If you don’t follow the “festival of all festivals” closely, however, then take it from me … they are perennial favorites.

Anyway, to read my “take” on 2013’s edition of this popular South American marketplace, slip over to Kingdom Magic Vacations’ Blog.  Yes, my friends.  Catch “Scouting Report: Argentina”!
