We were in Orlando during last year’s Orlando Magical Dining Month (September). It’s 33 USD for a three-course, prix fixe dinner at some of Orlando’s most famous/expensive restaurants. The only restaurant that caught my eye was Emeril’s. I grew up watching Emeril on the Food Network so in my eyes, he’s the first ever celebrity tv chef.
Emeril’s is located at Universal’s CityWalk so it’s a perfect place for dinner after a day at the Park.
Emeril only visits the restaurant about once a year.. no such luck that day!
the corn bread on the right was AMAZING….so soft and buttery, served warm… so delicious! It reminds me a bit of scones.. The server was nice enough to keep giving me refills!
FRESH GULF CEVICHE (Fresh local fish, cilantro, lime, chilis)…. There was a lot of ceviche compared to the tortillas.
GULF OYSTER BISQUE (Crème fraiche, spinach, bacon)…
Unfortunately, I lost the photos of the entrèes. We each ordered a different entrèe:
Mussels & Frites (White wine, tomato, sausage, hand cut fries, aioli)
Roasted Salmon (Saffron risotto, chorizo, fennel, tomato broth)
Stadler Farm Chicken Breast (Andouille & potato hash, tempura onion, sweet barbecue sauce)
Each entrèe had a very large portion…like a regular sized portion. Both the Vancouver Dine Out and Hong Kong Dining Week portion are like sample-size…so you get your value at Emeril’s! All the dishes were flavourful and fresh, with a great presentation.
some famous house dessert….
Loved Emeril’s!!! Good value for the quality! We got a real deal here during the month of magicial dining..
FAIM? OUI OUI!!
