Cocina Cucamonga Mexican Grill

Hey Guys,

Disneyland resort in Anaheim has a lot of different food options within both parks, so we decided that today we would try Cocina Cucamonga Mexican Grill at Disneyland California Adventure. The menu has a decent selection of Mexican inspired dishes ranging from tacos to they're "Ensaladas", which are huge salads loaded with different toppings.

So lets get into the review:

Burrito Sonora - Beef, Chicken or Roasted Vegetables with refried beans, seared peppers and onions, and shredded cheese topped with a traditional Guajillo sauce.

Alexis: The Roasted Veggies were perfectly cooked. They weren't too soft and weren't to crunchy. I thought this combination was going to be a little weird, but it was supper delicious. The red salsa on the burrito was flavorful and went well with the pico de gallo and guacamole. 

Veggie Burrito

The only thing that I did not care for was that the burrito was overstuffed with refried beans. It already comes with beans on the side so I felt like it was a bit too much. Needless to say I did not eat any of my beans. the rice was a bit on the hard side, but still tasted good. I would have this burrito again because the veggies were just so good, but I'll probably ask them to put less beans.

Bryan: Instead of the roasted veggies or beef, I went with chicken instead for my burrito. Although it was pretty filling, I wish I would of picked something else instead of the chicken burrito. Not that it tasted terrible or anything, but I felt the chicken was a a bit bland and too few. Like Alexis said, these burritos have too much beans inside which detract from the other flavors a tad bit. I on the other hand loved the rice and beans on the side. I mixed the sour creme and pico de gallo in with the rice and beans. It was super tasty. Overall, not bad for Disneyland, but I definitely want to try something else next time.

Wine Country Trattoria

Hey guys, so this is our first post! Let's dig in!  Today we dined at Disney California Adventure Park. We have been to Wine Country Trattoria before and thought it would be great for our first review.

To start, they serve 4 pieces of warm table bread. The bread is absolutely delicious, not to mention it is also free! There are two types of bread to choose from (not sure what kind they are, but they are both tasty).

We like making a dipping sauce for our table bread. A (very) liberal dab of balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, and pepper. All available at your table!

Alexis: For my main dish I had the Broccolini Aglio Olio: "Campanelle, Spaghetti, or Fettucine lightly tossed with Spinach, Arugula, Tomatoes, Garlic, Chili Flakes, and Olive Oil." It is really nice that you get to choose your own type of pasta. I chose fettucine, obviously. I was worried that this pasta would lack in flavor since it had no sauce base, but it was actually very flavorful! Also, the subtle spiciness from the chili flakes gave it an extra kick. It was not dry and the vegetables were all cooked to perfection. The only thing I did not like was the pasta. It seemed dry in some parts like it had been sitting for a while and the parts that were not covered by water dried up. However, I was really hungry and thought it was overall an amazing dish!

Bryan: I had the Grilled Chicken Sandwich: "Herbed Chicken Breast with Provolone, Arugula, Roma Tomatoes, and Pesto Aïoli with a Green Salad." The bread was tasty and had great consistency, but more importantly the blend of the cheese, aioli sauce, and the seasoning of the chicken made my taste buds go wild. It was a great combination and I would definitely order it again. The side salad was standard and the dressing had a little tart to it, but nothing amazing.

After we had Ice Cream since it was HOT! All ice cream is delicious...

Thanks for checking out our blog! We will try to post as much as we can!
Have a wonderful day,
