Foodie Friday: Columbia Harbour House

Even reading the name of the restaurant sends my taste buds into a frenzy! Remember that on my review of Keys to the Kingdom Tour I told you that this is where you stop for lunch. Lucky for me we did or I probably would have never found the best vegetarian meal in Disney! After reading review after review, I have come to find the general consensus is that this counter service is one of the best and favorites at Magic Kingdom and I have to agree! We were escorted in by our tour guide and taken to the top floor. I love American History and this cute little late 18th century restaurant was perfectly decorated. From the walls to the carpet to all the little trinkets sitting on shelves, you really felt you were in a different era! I’ll go ahead and apologize for my parents ordering their usual chicken strips and fries, as most of this food is available within every park, there isn’t much difference from restaurant to restaurant. Anyway, the chicken strips and fries were given a thumbs up! 

I want to focus here on a spectacular meal that I was served: The Lighthouse Sandwich. This sandwich, served with chips, has made its rounds into the hearts of many Disney vegetarians, and mine too! A simple hummus with tomato-broccoli slaw sandwich served on crisp bread. I think I was too stunned to answer the question from my parents: “Is it good?” Absolutely! After making my way through many of the parks, Yak and Yeti and their tofu noodles held the title as the best vegetarian meal (although Cosmic Ray’s veggie burger was pretty rockin’) I had found. Fresh broccoli slaw with a juicy tomato and creamy hummus can really make a girl’s day 10 times better. The bread was just crispy enough and the sandwich didn’t fall apart at all, something I can’t say for some of the veggie burgers I had. The chips were also pretty good but combine this fantastic sandwich with the beautiful early American theme and you’ve got a one-of-a-kind experience! I can’t wait to return to Columbia Harbour House and delve into another one of these!
