The other day when Matt and I visited Downtown Disney to try some of the food trucks we still need to visit, we were both looking forward to Fantasy Fare. The concept is a great one, featuring foods found in the “Magic Kingdoms Around the World.” Unfortunately, the truck was struggling to get up and running.
We headed over to Namaste Cafe for a bite to hold us over until they resolved their gas problem. Upon ourreturn, they looked like they had some prep going on, but still weren’t open with no discernible time in site. We’ll have to try again another day, but that doesn’t mean we can’t take a look at the menus!
While we weren’t interested in the Croque Monsieur from our own Magic Kingdom park that evening, I have had it before at Be Our Guest during their lunch service.
If the Croque Monsieur is just like the one served nearby, it’s a combination of carved ham, Gruyere cheese, and bechamel. Instead of Pommes Frites as the side, however, you’ll get House-Made Chips. For someone that’s not a big ham fan, I did really like this sandwich. If you can’t make it to Be Our Guest during lunch, this is a good opportunity to at least try something from the restaurant. I think the price at the truck might even be a smidge lower (!).
The Glass Noodle Salad with Chicken and Pickled Vegetables from Hong Kong Disneyland was one of the two items we were after. This was intriguing to both Matt and myself, but with him being a fan of Asian food, this was a great fit for him. I can’t wait to get back to actually try it. I’ll willingly brave the cluster of cars vying for parking over there one of these evenings!
Don’t worry. We’ll get back over for real reviews of Fantasy Fare and World Showcase of Flavors in due time. In the interim, I wanted to get the menus up and out there for you to check out. In case you missed them, be sure to visit our reviews of the Animal Kingdom-themed Namaste Cafe and Hollywood Studios-themed Superstar Catering. Enjoy!
