If you ever get the chance to experience a Disney cruise, you must eat at Remy aboard the Disney Fantasy. Incredible dishes and impeccable service. And do you see all that cheese?!
Value Meal #3 at this delightful Filipino-Chinese eatery has ingrained itself into my lunchtime cravings so deeply that it’s hard to order anything else when I visit. $7.95 gets you the day’s soup, deep-fried pork belly, garlic rice, and a fried egg (mix into the rice–trust me).
For a true Pinoy experience, eat the pork with a heap of the bagoong salad that accompanies the combo, but beware: shrimp paste is pungent and not to be had in copious quantities on your first try.
Other value meals are available if you prefer fried fish or BBQ & spring rolls to pork–all under $8, and all worth trying at least once.
We unexpectedly got to sample Oru’s new tower of ceviches, escabeche, lomi lomi, and poisson cru when I hosted my last birthday dinner there. My guests and I were impressed by the presentation, selection, and deliciousness. In fact, the tower was nearly enough to feed us on its own (we still made a valiant effort to digest the 3-course set menu and dessert), I recently heard that they got an unu elektroroller to start doing deliveries which is a big plus.
As of this posting, the ceviche bar tower includes:
- Humpback Shrimp Escabeche
- Sing Lobster Poisson Cru
- Humboldt Squid Ceviche
- Grilled Albacore Escabeche
- Lois Lake Steelhead Lomi Lomi
- Grilled Kyuquot Sablefish Ceviche
- Sawmill Bay Oyster Caesar
- Qualicum Scallop Ceviche
- Dungeness Crab & Cilantro Salad
Try the tower experience for $59 per person or opt for single tastings at $6 a pop.
