When you walk World Showcase at Epcot, there are many wonderful tastes and smells around you at all times. Over the years, we have eaten at several places there, but had not had the privledge to try the Fish and Chips at The Yorkshire County Fish Shop until now.
I have had fish and Chips before and knew what they tasted like, so I was not ready for the mind blowing flavor and texture I was about to experience.
The first thing you need to know about this wonderful fish, is that you should not just dive right in to take a bite as these are smokin' hot and fresh. Once you allow it cool for a bit, and you take your first bite, you know you are not eating just ordinary fish and chips. These are tender and juicy and moist and huge! Disney has a reputation for being on the pricey side, but I have to say that for this portion, and quality, it is fairly priced.
Another thing you have to watch for here, is that it is so popular and so crowded most of the time, that seating is hard to come by. We got a table, but no chairs. To be honest, it was so good, I did not care about standing. Especially with the authentic British scenery all around us and a beautiful view of the lake.
Onto the chips. My favorite thing about these "chips" was the amount of potato meat in them. I love thick potatos that have a ton of potato come out when you squeeze it. Real potato. Quite a generous portion of those too.
Dessert is authentic British Sugar Cookies and all I can say is wow!
I love all experiences Disney because they are so immersive. Everything you do here feels exactly how it should if it were real all the way from someone of British descent taking your order and serving you your food, to the flavors, to the surroundings. Our daughter who is a Harry Potter fan extrodinaire, loved meeting and talking with the people here as well!
A real treat not to be missed! Enjoy the pics. I'm not sure why, but I forgot to take a pic this day of the actual place and since I only use my own photos for this site, for now, that will have to do. I have lots of pics of us enjoying the experience, the actual food and a video review from the fam. We went back another time later and I did take a pic, but I will have to add it later when I come across it. Enjoy!

We lost everything and had to start over again, but we decided to do it with magic and style here in the most magical place on earth. We were scared to death. The destroyed economy made my "vanilla frosting" biz fall apart. You might ask what a vanilla frosting biz is. It is one defined as something people would love to do and should do bc it helps their kids to have a better future, but when the basics became hard to afford, the frosting was not attainable. We tried to use credit cards as a temporary fix to keep the only thing I knew how to do and had trained for my whole life floating, but the overhead was unsustainable and then the credit cards also became that way and so we fell. Lost it all. The house, the office, our lifestyle, which in retrospect now, we realize that although we were always happy together, we had gotten used to an unhealthy and boring lifestyle. That was all about to change thanks to our fall and amazing silver linings. The fall felt like I was letting go. Couldn't control anything anymore so I allowed myself, although terrified, to truly fall and see where G-d, life and fate wanted me/us to go. I allowed fate to see us through! I prayed a lot everyday that this fate would be a happy one.
