Friar’s Nook at the Magic Kingdom has always been a place I walked by. I may have stopped for a cold drink once in a while, but it’s never been on my list of places to eat. I suspect it’s because I usually stop at Storybook Treats next door – they have some fantastic ice cream treats that has always lured me away from Friar’s Nook. Until now.Friar’s Nook had a few people mulling about before it opened and some looked like off-duty cast members. That’s always a good sign if the cast members like it, they know where the good food is!
When the window opened I ordered 2 different ‘tot’ dishes for my sister and I.
I opted for the loaded buffalo chicken tots, and all I can say is WOW!! These were just the right amount of spicy with a little celery, bleu cheese crumbles, and a bit of garlic ranch dressing. Seriously, all of that together – how can you NOT love it? It was delicious!
My sister decided she wanted the creamy bacon macaroni & cheese tots. There was a healthy amount of bacon and the macaroni was cooked well and not drowning in sauce. It was very tasty!
If you haven’t tried the food at Friar’s Nook, I suggest you do. I loved the buffalo chicken, but next time I might even try the loaded fiesta tots – they are ground beef chili, tomatoes and peppers – on TOTS! I love all kinds of potatoes, so a place that’s all about tots is my kinda place!
Have you eaten here? What dish is your favourite?
I am a vegetarian. Can the Mac and cheese by ordered without the bacon?
Great question! I’m sure they could make that happen for you!
