Matt and I love hitting up pool bars at WDW. It’s even better when they have built-in food service. Beaches Pool Bar & Grill does an excellent job with this, as noted with the now-defunct Falafel Fritters I ordered on my last visit (although the Falafel Burger remains).
The Beef and Brie Bruschetta caught our eye; a combination of Ciabatta with Braised Beef, Brie, Beefsteak Tomato and Horseradish Cream. Wait, horseradish cream? Matt HATES horseradish! He’s also not a big fan of brie.
Fortunately (for Matt), the horseradish cream was incredibly mild and sparse. The bread was nicely toasted, and the braised beef had flavorful char on it. It reminded me of a gravy-less pot roast; not one of my favorite things, but nicely done nonetheless. Matt and I enjoyed a full slice each, but deconstructed the third, with each having half a slice of bread and he consuming the beef and I consuming the brie. The Beef & Brie Bruschetta is something that will remain on our radar as a dish to order again should we be looking for something light, or a predecessor to a meal.
Here’s a look at the menu and more detailed descriptions:
Beaches Pool Bar & Grill remains a top hangout spot to enjoy the warm weather and grab a drink and some food. If you haven’t been, I recommend taking some time to swing by for some down time on your next visit to WDW.
