On Sunday, Geoff and I headed out for more Food & Wine fun. The problem with hitting Food & Wine on the weekend is that it gets crowded - fast - with crazy locals like us.
So we were there in time for the booths to open at 11. This plan worked great - it took a good hour for the World Showcase to start getting crowded, and even by the time we left around 12:30, it wasn't terrible. But it was HOT!

Next we moved over to Mexico. We got our food and then were able to meet up with AJ from the Disney Food Blog. It was great to get a chance to meet her - I did a review for Party for the Senses a couple years ago, and she's used my Food & Wine pictures on the site (because I've always been the crazy person who takes pictures of her food.)

We also got the Lettuce Wrap with Roast Pork & Kimchi slaw. Geoff likes Kimchi, so he was excited for this. We started by using forks because the piece of lettuce didn't lend itself to being wrapped very well. The flavor was good, and once we had a little less filling, we were able to take a bite with the lettuce, which added an extra layer of crunch and took down the spice factor just a little. The spice was good, but it was a creeping spice, not like a Buffalo Wing where you notice it as soon as you bite in, more lingering so you taste the spice after you eat the food. I'm not a fan of those spices as they usually catch me off-guard! I'd give this a solid 4. I think they should use a better lettuce leaf.

I'll have the second half of our day up tomorrow!
