You may have noticed our post about the White Castle Crave Mobile making an appearance at both Fun Spot America locations this weekend. Well, apparently everybody underestimated how popular this event would be.
Each day, the lines were huge, with people waiting 2-3 hours just to place their orders. Sometimes the truck would close the line to catch up, and then reopen. And even then there was no guarantee the people in the line would get a chance to order.
Yesterday afternoon we headed out to the Four Seasons Orlando Resort at Walt Disney World. It’s a stunning place, but we were there to check out the Four Seasons Food Truck, which made a stop at the resort as part of it’s east coast tour.
The menu was prepared by Executive Chef Fabrizio Schenardi of the resort’s Ravello restaurant, and had a distinctive Italian flair.
We tried several items off the menu. The first was Arancini al Brasato, a ball of risotto with braised short rib and peas inside, coated in breadcrumbs and fried. It just exploded with flavor in my mouth. Everything was well-balanced, and I could’ve eaten these all day. Thankfully we only had two in the order, and there were other things to try.
Four Seasons Resorts have been sending a food truck on a tour of the east coast, and it will arrive in Orlando October 27 and 28.
