Just across from the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, in Adventureland, is La Tortuga Mexican Restaurant. I had read good reviews of this place, though I’ve also read that it isn’t always open during less busy seasons.
Both boys ordered the quesadilla kids meal with applesauce, a cookie, and sprite.
My daughter ordered a Smucker’s Uncrustables PB&J with grapes, a cookie, and apple-juice.
Hubby ordered the beef nachos, which came with black beans and what turned out to be pico-de-gallo on top. I’m not sure what it said on the menu, but I can’t imagine that it said pico-de-gallo.
Because we’re not fans of pico.
After picking out the onions, tomatoes, and green-peppers, he said it was good.
And here . . . is my taco salad.
A little disconcerting, huh?
There is a condiment bar with lots of fresh lettuce, shredded cheese, and salsa. They also give you sour-cream packages.
Much better now.
This was actually very good. The beef was good, typical taco meat. I actually went back again to load up with some more lettuce (and fine, more cheese!) because I hadn’t mixed it up well enough at the beginning.
We ordered Diet Cokes as our adult drinks, and they were the very large (I’m guessing 32 oz) size. Our adult meals also came with a dessert, but chocolate cake was the only option. I remember this because I’m allergic to chocolate. (Sympathy comments are welcome.) I was nice and let the kids split my cake. Thankfully, they didn’t get used to it.
These are, I admit, some of the worst food-pictures from this project. They do get a little better. If you feel like criticizing, I invite you to order a meal at a very crowded restaurant, seat your family of five at a table meant for four, put the food in front of your starving children, and then stop them all from eating while you arrange and photograph their food.
Once you have done that, feel free to come back and leave a comment about how easy it was for you.
