Editor: Please join me today in welcoming our newest writer, Keith, to The Affordable Mouse! As a chef, Keith will be sharing his thoughts with us several times each month, on the wonderful world of Disney food.
For those of you who have never been to Raglan Road it occupies the building that used to be the Jazz club on Pleasure Island. Master Chef Kevin Dundon and crew took great care and detail when transforming this restaurant. All of the furnishings and wall coverings were designed and built in Ireland and shipped over. As well as the four 130 year old bars that were installed to give you the authentic pub experience. They also offer free entertainment in the form of Irish bands and dancers who encourage you to join in on the fun.
The new creation of Master Chef Dundon recreates his childhood Sunday brunch. Items such as the “full Irish” which includes sausage, black and white pudding, bacon, roasted tomatoes, mushrooms, and fried eggs all served with roasties (fried potatoes). Other options include pancakes with crème fraiche and berry compote, smoked salmon omelet, and a ham schnitzel with eggs benedict. Entrees will range around 19.00.
If you have six or more people and want the true family brunch experience you can take part in the “Host the Roast” Irish feast. This must be reserved at least 48 hours in advance and will range from $35-$55 per person. You will be treated to a family style feast with your choice of beef rib, pork loin, stuffed leg of lam, or lemon thyme chicken. Guests will also be served a wide selection of sides family style.
I can assure you from personal experience the food at Raglan Road is amazing and you can’t help but have a fun, friendly, entertaining experience. Just like St. Patrick’s Day, even if you aren’t Irish doesn’t mean you can’t pretend you are one for a day.
Keith was born and raised in Northeast Ohio.He now lives with his wife a few miles from his childhood home. His first trip to the Magic Kingdom was at the age of two and while the only memories are in pictures, the magic laid dormant within him. Until he saw the animated movie Robin Hood, and his love began to grow. He has always had an interest in food and the togetherness it brings. He became a classically trained chef and all around foodie. His last trip to Disney World was in 2011 and he has been learning, researching, and keeping up on all things Disney since. He hopes to bring you all of the food news from the parks, tips on how to save money on food, and all the tastes and smells from the House of Mouse (especially when smell o vision is invented).
