We tried the garlic shrimp with roasted tomatoes, lemon, myrtle and rapini. If you’re unfamiliar with rapini, or broccoli rabe, it looks a little bit like broccoli and has a slight bitter taste. The dish was full of flavor and very light.

The grilled lamb chops with mint pesto and potato crunchies was the other item we tried. If you like lamb chops, this is worth a try. The potato crunchies are much like potato chips.

The Wolf Blass Gold Label chardonnay was really light and refreshing with a hint of citrus. It’s a great wine to enjoy when it’s hot outside. We tried it since Disney recommended it with the garlic shrimp. It paired really nicely with it.
