Hi everyone! I trust your opinions on food, so I thought I'd ask this question here. How is the food at the new Paradise Pier dining area? Is it super-greasy, or are there tasty, healthier options? I'm always trying to watch what I eat at DL, and I'm hesitant to try new things because I don't want to spend a bunch of fat grams and calories on a "so-so" meal, lol! I'm a huge fan of mediterranean food and I love Bengal Barbeque--how do the kabobs compare?
I love the kabobs at Paradise Pier. I think it's one of the places that make it easier to eat healthy in the parks. You choose you sauce and have them serve it on the side so you have control. - vernswifevickie   400.5 #657 9-11-11 3:53PM Like  Reply
I ate at both places this year. From a diet point of view, Bengal is easier - i.e you can get kabobs w/no sauce and plain, grilled veggies and it's all delicious. At Paradise Grill I had the chicken with tzatziki and asked them for no flatbread or rice and extra veggies and was told "no substitutions"! It was really good (and I was a good girl and only ate a few bites of rice and no flatbread). If I had to choose, I'd have to go with Bengal for the kabob and have the salad at Paradise Grill. HTH! - msdizmaui   1119.1 #203 9-12-11 12:58AM Like  Reply
I guess it also depends on the plan you're following. I'm doing WW so the carbs aren't so much of an issue for me. I did have to ask them to leave the flatbread off. I have a hard time with self control with the flat bread! So, am I the only one who thinks that the portion size at Bengal BBQ is ridiculously small? - vernswifevickie   400.5 #657 9-12-11 4:41AM Like  Reply
I don't really follow any specific plan--I just try to keep it balanced! Thanks, Vickie and MDM. This was helpful! I think it's worth trying out. I like that you can get the sauce on the side. And Vickie, I agree that the Bengal's portions are small, but I do like that everything is a la carte, instead of a whole pre-made plate, and one kabob is relatively cheap (at least for DL food!). - Spoonful_O_Sugar   720.1 #334 9-12-11 6:55AM Like  Reply
One last comment - it may have just been the ones I got, but the kabob at Bengal was more solid, white meat chix. I admit - I'm a picky eater - but there was a lot at the Grill that I left on the plate. Vickie - I agree, but also like the ala carte factor - especially when I just want meat & veggies! - msdizmaui   1119.1 #203 9-13-11 7:14PM Like  Reply
