Festival of Holiday Sip and Savor Pass! December 2018

We were at the Disneyland Resort this last week
(December 17-22, 2018) 
for the Festival of Holidays.

California Adventure had food carts all over the park where you could try some different things.  When they do these things they offer a Sip and Savor Pass.  For Annual Passholders it was $49 - with that you get to try 8 items.  These can be from any of the 12 carts they have.

Chris and I ate our way through DCA that day!  We bought 1 pass and shared each item.  It was enough food!  That Sip and Savor Pass fed both of us for a whole day!  Well, with a snack or 2 thrown in for fun!  :)

Click on "Read More" if you want to see how I rated each item.

I have put them in order from least to most favorite!
And when I say least favorite - it was still good!  They were all good!

 #8 - Roasted Turkey Slider from Winter Sliderland
This was the messiest thing we ate!  It was really juicy and got everywhere!
But it was pretty good!

7.5 out of 10!

#7 - Lox & Everything Bagel Nachos from Merry Mashups
I'd never had lox before - I took a chance on these!
They were very good!

8.5 out of 10!

 #6 - Stuffing Macaroni and Cheese from Winter Sliderland
We weren't sure what that title meant!  But we thought it was intriguing.
It was mac and cheese with stuffing crumble on top.
It was some of the best mac and cheese ever!

9 out of 10

#5 - Beef pot Roast on a Potato Roll from Grandma's Recipes
It was exactly how you'd imagine from the name and the description.
It was really good!

#4 - Turkey and Stuffing Tamale from Merry Mashups
The cranberry sauce on this tamale was amazing!
The whole thing totally tasted like a turkey dinner wrapped in a tamale!

9.5 out of 10

#3 - Shrimp and Grits from Holiday Duets
I don't remember ever having grits before - they were really good!
They had the look and feel of mashed potatoes, with a little spice to them.
This was delicious!

9.75 out of 10


#2 - Holiday Ham Shanks from Favorite Things
This was the first thing we tried.  There were 3 pieces for us to divide up.
It was sooo tasty!  We were planning to get another one at the end, if we had any coupons left!
But we didn't.  We used them all - everything was so good!
This little gem was seriously fantastic!

9.85 out of 10

#1 - Braised Pork Belly Adobo from Blissfully Braised
This is one of the best things we've ever eaten anywhere!
SO DELICIOUS!!!  Tender and flavorful.  We could have eaten this again, too!

10 out of 10

When the Disney Resort has these events with the food carts like this - we highly recommend doing it!  This was our 3rd time getting the Sip and Savor card (even though we didn't sip anything!  They had alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, and desserts - we just chose to get these instead!) and this was the best selection we've seen.  We liked everything we tried this time.

Thanks Disney for this fun experience!
We wouldn't have gotten this any other way!
