How did that celery get there?

After a long day of lines, rides and shows at Disneyland, it’s a great idea to relax before making the long drive back up to Los Angeles. Enter Downtown Disney. While this area spans a huge tract of land, there’s really a surprisingly limited number of restaurant options.

Last time I went, we walked up and down the downtown for what seemed like hours before we decided on the House of Blues. They had a nice outdoor area and the weather was perfect for some outside dining. My friend’s Disney discount also applied here, and even though the prices were pretty reasonable, it made ordering all the more sweet.

The menu had some pretty good-looking foods, except most of them had some sort of vegetable included. Hoping to make up in spiciness for my relatively bland lunch, I ordered the Spicy Buffalo Chicken Tenders, which came with fries, blue cheese and celery. In my heat-induced fatigue, I completely forgot to order without the celery and was a bit surprised when I discovered them on my plate.

Lucky for me, the celery was nowhere near my real food and I was able to avoid contact as I passed it off to my friends. The buffalo chicken ended up being quite good. I wouldn’t have minded if they made it a bit spicier, but it definitely hit the spot. The fries were a good addition as well. All in all, it was a good way to wrap up a long day at Disneyland.

Typically, this has been relegated to Taco Bell, but another faux-Mexican restaurant called Mad Mex is continuing that trend. Namely, this innovation is called The Gobblerito and it means Thanksgiving in a tortilla. Continue Reading»
