A “Midnight Snack” at B.B. Wolf’s Sausage Co.!

Back to Disney Springs, my friends!  Last October, I wrote about one of “Downtown’s” newest food kiosks – B.B. Wolf’s Sausage Co.

Located ” … in The Town Center at Disney Springs, it features a selection of artisanal sausages with mouthwatering toppings.”  Those are Disney’s own words, folks!

Anyway, at the time, I didn’t have a “snack” to share with you.  Fortunately, today, I can rectify that omission!  Behold, the Foot-long Bavarian Bratwurst.

This item reminded me, very much, of the brat that Germany serves each year at Epcot’s Food & Wine festival.  The main difference being – a full size Pretzel Roll!

Adorned with Braised Red Cabbage and Sweet Brown Mustard, this “midnight delight” was pretty darn good.  In addition, take a close look.  There are two brats on that roll!

I have to admit … we stopped by a bit late in the evening.  I’d love for one of you to tell me – is this the normal portion size?  Or, did we luck out with a late-night double portion?

When it comes to the rest of the menu, as you can see, Wolf’s sports a variety of choices.  If the foot-long brat is a good example, however, I’d be willing to recommend any of their options.

B.B. Wolf’s.  If you find yourself wandering around Disney Springs in need of a quick bite, give them a shot!  You might be very glad that you did!

Dining Recon: Sommerfest

Good morning, my friends!  I hope all is well in your world.  Did you win yesterday’s $1.6 billion Powerball jackpot?  No?  Neither did I.  No retirement to Orlando for me … yet!

Hey!  Everyone has their own favorite “spot” in Walt Disney World, don’t they?  I mean, I haven’t been shy about admitting my affection for the Coronado Springs Resort’s Laguna Bar.

When truth is told, however, it is actually Epcot’s World Showcase that tops my list of favorite places to sit, people watch, and, most of all, relax when we’re on vacation.

Of course, for the most part, everyone also has their favorite pavilion in World Showcase.  Normally, I’m partial to both the United Kingdom and Norway, but I’m fond of Germany too.

On a recent trip, I stopped by Germany at lunchtime.  Not wanting a big meal, I visited the pavilion’s Counter Service – Sommerfest – for a quick bite to eat.

Whether it’s their savory entrees or sugary delights, there are a lot of good choices at this little counter, don’t you think?  In the name of “research”, I couldn’t resist trying two items!

First up, was a fresh-cooked Bratwurst.  Loaded with sauerkraut and accompanied by house-made “paprika chips”, it was good.

Frankly (no pun intended), however, it (especially the bun) needed something to wash it down.  More on that in a second.

Sommerfest’s Nudel Gratin, though, was phenomenal!  If you like a good baked macaroni and cheese, select this dish.  It is excellent!

Of course, I had to have a beverage as well.  Disney fans far and wide rave about Schöfferhofer Pink Grapefruit Hefeweizen.  So, why not try it?

You have to understand, I am a fan of hoppy (somewhat “citrus-y”) beers.  I am not a fan of fruity beers.  This brew, however, was very refreshing and tasted quite good.  I’d have it again!

All in all, a good, and much too big for my belly, lunch.  I didn’t finish the brat.

If I had one critique, to be honest, it would be Germany’s lack of seating.  This meal, I had to eat at my favorite umbrella table in Italy.  That’s OK, though.  It is another of my favorite spots!
