Forget the Sushi! Let’s Dine on Pizza and Beer!

You’ll have to forgive me, folks.  I need to pass along one more little Splitsville “blast”.  This time, let’s dine on pizza and beer!

Actually, I might have been able to entitle this post as another in, what is becoming, a long list of Disney “before and after” reports.

How so?  Well, check this out … Splitsville used to serve their beer in an ice cold, frozen chalice.  Deliciously refreshing!

Now, however?  Well, they’ve taken a big step back in my mind.  Instead of setting themselves apart by serving that impressively unique chalice, they’ve switched to …

A much more mundane presentation, the beer is still cold and enjoyable, but I have to admit … a little bit of Splitsville’s “magic” has disappeared.  Too bad.

When it comes to foods, two of my personal favorites are, you guessed it, sushi and pizza!  Hey!  Why do you think I’ve devoted the last three days to both delights?!

Check out yesterday’s post – Dining Recon: Splitsville Luxury Lanes! Better Sushi Than California Grill?!

Anyway, for $17, this Meat Lovers is a very shareable meal.  Plus, loaded with smoked sausage, pepperoni, bacon, and Italian meatballs, it’s a delicious pie!

Wow!  Great pizza.  Ice cold beer.  How can you ever lose with that combination?

If you, too, want to enjoy great food, give Splitsville a shot.  Hey!  They’re not your everyday ordinary bowling alley, you know!

Dining Recon: Splitsville Luxury Lanes! Better Sushi Than California Grill?!

Oh, you bet, it is!  It’s a ‘cold-as-sushi’ fact!  In our opinions, Splitsville’s sushi is much, much better than that served by the Contemporary’s Signature jewel.

Now, don’t get me wrong.  We love California Grill.  We really do!  On a dollar-to-dollar basis, however, Disney’s “luxury” bowling alley wins any sushi showdown between the two restaurants … no contest!

See yesterday’s post – Dining Recon: Sushi at California Grill!

Hey!  The quality is equivalent, at the very least!  What’s the difference, then?  Hah!  Check out the alley’s full menu, but focus on the sushi!

On this particular day, we shared three rolls.  The Volcano Roll ($16) is one of my personal favorites.  Why?  I just love the ‘spicy volcano krab mix’ on top of the roll!

The Alberto ($13) is a healthy and unusual presentation.  No rice!  Lean protein.  Plenty of veggies.  Wrapped in thinly-sliced cucumber!  Quite refreshing.

Finally, how could we not end with the “king” of sushi rolls?  The Crouching Dragon ($16) is a meal in and of itself!  Take a look!  There’s that ‘krab mix’ again!

All in, $45 for those three rolls, folks.  Look back at yesterday’s post, and you’ll see that we paid $50 for what were assuredly much smaller portions.

Again, in sum, great sushi at both locations, but, in our book, the “bowling alley” at Disney Springs has Contemporary’s flagship beat … no questions!

Dining Recon: Sushi at California Grill!

Happy Saturday, folks!  What better way to come off of a couple of turkey-stuffed days than with a light and refreshing treat?  Say, with some ‘highfalutin’ sushi, perhaps?

Mrs. All in WDW and I got the opportunity to enjoy the sights, sounds, and, more importantly, the tastes of the Contemporary Resort’s California Grill on a recent trip, and, let me tell you, it was fantastic … as always!

Of course, as you might expect from a Signature restaurant, Cali’s prices are as high as its food is classy.  Nonetheless, we’d recommend that you dine there at least once.  And, hey, if you like sushi, give theirs a try.  It’s expensive, but it’s great!  Bon appetit!

The sushi bar!

You know that a Lobster Roll will require an open wallet. At $26, this little morsel delivered in that regard.

Boasting tuna, watermelon, salmon, apples, hamachi, and crab, Cali’s Sashimi was delicious but it commanded a big price too – $24!

Sushi, Chicken, Fries, and Pizza? What a “Splitting” Combination!

Or, should I say … “what a fitting combination”?  Good morning, my friends.  Welcome to Friday!

Mrs. All in WDW and I, when we drop by Disney Springs, just can’t resist Splitsville.  What an active, exciting, and fun atmosphere!  Stop in.  It’s a blast!

And, the food?  Well, as I’ve written so many times before, whether it’s sushi, chicken tenders, french fries, or pizza, it all just rocks!

Oh!  And, for full disclosure … the food you’re about to see was enjoyed on three separate visits to Mickey’s bowling alley.  Hey, we couldn’t eat all of this in one sitting … even if we wanted to!

Let’s begin where I have started so many times before.  Sushi!

Looks phenomenal, eh?  Splitsville has some of the very best sushi on Disney property.  Believe that!

Moving on, how would you like to try some chicken tenders and fries?

Yes, folks, those fries are as good as they look.  Crispy and delicious!

On a side note, I just love crinkle fries!  What is your favorite cut of fries?

Finally, we’d highly recommend Splitsville’s BBQ Chicken pizza.  Filling and delicious, it hits “the spot”!

Of course, you can’t pass on beverages.  If you’re a beer aficionado, they have a wide selection of choices on draft – all served in an icy-cold goblet.  Yum!

Splitsville!  It’s one of our favorite places.  Stop in!  Maybe it’ll become one of yours!
