Is That It!

Good Monday Morning Folks...Hope you are are feeling well..As I was reading today's food blog review of Yorkshire Fish & Chip takeaway, I remember our first encounter way back in 2006..My DS doesn't like fish but loves chips ( Fries ) So I ordered two fish suppers.. yay We sat down outside and slowly opened them up.. eek Where's my fish.?...I looked down at two little pieces of fish nestled on top of the chips.. sad Now don't get me wrong,it was good, lovely crisp batter,flaky white pieces of cod,( Back here in Scotland,the best fish & chips shops have a choice of fish, and I opt for haddock ) But I could have done with another wee fillet of cod..Come to think of it, it's the only time at WDW that I may have quoted that famous line from Oliver.." May I have some more please Sir...Which comes to my question..Have you ever had something to eat at Disney and enjoyed but wished it was a bigger portion.?..

I have always thought that the fish there might be just a load of old pollocks (excuse the british humour)

In terms food being small, well, Earl of Sandwich sandwiches come to mind. They're definitely not large compared to most sandwiches but the flavors and ingredients make up for it.

I think their size is absolutely perfect, especially for the price.

I haven't eaten a lot at WDW yet, but so far there hasn't really been anything I've thought wasn't enough food. In fact most things are way more than I anticipate.

I'm usually quite pleased to discover a portion is not large enough to feed a family of four and have no complaints whatsoever regarding portions being too small.

I have to say I do agree about the Fish and Chips from the UK quick service. It was probably one of the worst quick service meals I've had at WDW.

It was basically a Captain D's meal. yuck Y'all southerns know what I am talkin' bout! laugh

That's always been my take on it too. Inside Rose & Crown was MUCH better!

As for portions being too small, I've never had that be the case but I don't eat a lot so it's rare for me to not have enough food. Wink

We've heard the table restaurant Rose and Crown is really good and we want to try it next trip!

I loved R&C! The cheese plate was my favorite part. I'm not big on fried food and I still thought the fish and chips were great so that's saying something as well. awesome

I absolutely LOVE fish n chips. But what they serve at that QS stand is barely acceptable. The frozen fries or chips is what gets me. If you're serving fish n chips, the "chips" need to be fresh cut!

Well, being from NJ, I admit being spoiled by being surrounded by sub shops and hoagie eateries all around me. When it comes to subs and hoagies in general, I prefer mine a bit longer, at least 10 inches in length compared to the 5-6 inches from Earl's though I do understand longer or having more meat and toppings doesn't always necessarily mean better. I'm not discrediting EOS because that would be silly of me considering how much I love the Full Montagu but part of me does wish the sandwich could just a bit longer like 8 inches at least.

Speaking of fish and chips, I haven't had the Yorkshire County Fish Shop yet and by the looks of it, maybe I shouldn't. The best fish and chips I've ever had was at a place in New York called, "A Salt and Battery". One giant piece of pollock, many small but thick chips and tartar sauce. So good.

Almost across the board, the opposite happens for me. I always think that the portions seem huge. I don't like to eat a ton when I'm walking around in the heat, so more of a snack-type situation works well for me. The only experience that comes to mind is when DH and I decided to split a spaghetti & meatballs at Tony's. Finally learning from our mistake of being too full because the portions are so large, we decided to split an entree. Not only was it the smallest entree that we had received at a table service to that point, but it was so yummy that we would have eaten more even if we were full. So we HAD to order dessert. biggrin

There was a marina in DTD that DH and went to because Fulton's was out of our lunch price range and this place said they had crab cakes (one of my favs). The view was nice and waitress was happy but the portions were ....meh...and the flavor....meh....

I don't think it's still there but that could be a mental attempt to block it out.

I do believe, at least in the states, we are used to larger than healthy portions of food, so when I see the smaller plate-full I realize that this is really more healthy anyway (well, take away the butter, cream, sugar they add......)
