Tusker House Lunch

May 2015 Trip Review

Tusker House – Part II (Lunch)

Once we had eaten most of our breakfast food, we all returned to the buffet to check out the lunch offerings. This time I was able to take several photos.

NOTE: I have identified these to the best of my ability. If anyone disagrees, don’t be afraid to speak up. I welcome the help!

Sadly, I found that I was feeling pretty full at this point so only tried a few things: Both meats from the carving station, some garlic mashed potatoes, and a couple of the desserts (strawberry mousse and carrot cake).

All of these were pretty good, especially the meats. However, my favorite is still the ham that is served at breakfast.

That leaves only our photos with the characters which are at Tusker House, both during breakfast and lunch.

First the host of this party, Donald Duck…

And his lovely girlfriend, Daisy…

And the very tall Goofy, whose head was dangerously close to being cut off in this photo…

But the kids had the most fun with Mickey, taking a selfie with him…

So Tusker House Breakfast vs. Lunch, who won the Brunch Challenge?

By a unanimous vote, Breakfast was the winner here! All three of us gave the breakfast food a rating of 5, or Very Good. The lunch food ratings averaged a 4, or Good. However, I don’t think that we gave lunch a fair shot. Therefore, I fully intend to pay another visit to Tusker House for lunch sometime so that I can try some of their more African-inspired dishes. The only problem is…how am I going to pass up the opportunity to have breakfast here? :worried:
