I often find myself at BoardWalk Inn, typically to visit ESPN Club for a few innings of a baseball game during a mid-day break from Epcot. After a pint or two, I usually walk down to Atlantic Dance Hall and back before returning to the park, if nothing more to enjoy the theme of the area. BoardWalk to Go, a small stand a few steps away from Kouzzina and Flying Fish restaurants, offers your typical boardwalk fare, of which we’ve tried the Cheese & Chili Dog before. I wasn’t really looking for something to eat, but then something caught my eye: Corn Fritter Nuggets.
At $4.00, it wouldn’t be too expensive of a gamble to give them a try. After several minutes of explaining to the Cast Member taking my order that I just wanted the nuggets and not the basket (which comes with fries and a drink), my serving of nuggets went into the fryer to cook to a golden, crispy brown.
The Corn Fritter Nuggets were not a food I’d experienced before, and didn’t exactly know what they would be. I was, on some level, expecting something along the lines of a hush puppy, but made with cornmeal. When I received the nuggets, closer inspection revealed pieces of corn which could be seen through the batter.
The nuggets, while a savory snack, were brought more to the sweet side with the sweetness of the corn. It wasn’t cloying, but very reminiscent of creamed corn. The outer layer was crisp, and the interior was warm and soft. I ate a couple, but wrapped the remainder in a paper bag I had requested from the stand so I could bring them home for Matt.
Though they were cool when I returned home, they still retained their crisp exterior. I offered to reheat them in the oven, but Matt still enjoyed them as they were. I can certainly see us ordering these again for a quick snack or post-game viewing treat.
Have you tried the Corn Fritter Nuggets from BoardWalk to Go or any of the other items on their menu? Let us know what you thought!
