Dinner at Kouzzina

We concluded our Cirque du Soleil evening with dinner at Kouzzina by Kat Kora at Disney's Boardwalk resort. We never got here when it was Spoodles so we're doubly happy to have finally dined here now. We live Greek, and the flavors were awesome.

We started with the sampler appetizer. This had a skewer of the juiciest grilled chicken we have ever had and a skewer of lamb Meatballs, which were spiced similarly to the lamb Kefka at Sanaa. That's my favorite flavor so I was very happy. There were also olives, spiced walnuts, hummus, tzatztiki sauce and pita.

For mains, Jim had the sampler with cinnamon stewed chicken, a lamb burger, and Greek lasagna or pastitsio. I had the full portion of cinnamon stewed chicken, which was served over orzo.

For dessert, we had a press pot of Kat'z signature coffee and shared a galaktoboureko, which is a semolina custard on phylo with a praline ice cream. Yumm.

In addition to all that, I also had the wine flight of three Greek white wines. I liked the first, which was a blend from Santorini, but the rest I could pass on. I should have gone for the Mythos beer that a fellow MouseOwner recommended to me.

Just another reason to go back!

Hearing your glowing report has made me a little less sad about Spoodles being gone. And so happy to hear the new menu is Mediterranean and there's a variety of small plates. Tapas was THE reason Scott and I loved Spoodles so.
How 'bout that La Nouba, huh?
