I’ve been having the biggest Disneyland withdrawals lately. So while the time passes until all of my friends’ SoCal passports become active again, I’ve been planning our next girls trip to the happiest place on Earth, complete with a trip to the Cove Bar.
If you’ve never made it out to the Cove Bar behind Ariel’s Grotto at Disneyland California Adventures, you are seriously missing out! I successfully crossed the Cove Bar off of my bucket list of Disneyland eats (the fat girl in me plans to try every food offering at Disney before I die) on our last trip and now I can’t believe we’ve gone so long without without ever visiting it.
This. This is their famous lobster nachos and they are everything. I was skeptical when I first heard about this delectable treat but that first bite totally changed my mind. Covered in melty cheese, black beans, serrano peppers, chipotle aoli, cilantro, pico de gallo and lobster, this nacho mountain is well worth the price of $13.99. What’s really cool about this dish is that they also offer the nacho chips on the side if you wanted to have the toppings as a dip, but as a lover of traditional nachos, I had it as is.
You can’t have nachos without drinks! (Seriously, you’ll get thirst eventually.) While I’m sure their specialty cocktails are great, Derek and I went a step further and got the drinks off of their “secret menu” (which we found a la Internet).
From left to right we have: Mickey’s Fun Wheel, The Zombie, Neverland Tea and The Black Pearl. If you’ve ever gotten a mixed drink at Disney then you know that these babies are STRONG. And while I have no idea what’s in these, I saw a lot of alcohol going in them and they were as yummy as they were pretty.
So the next time you make a trip out to Disneyland, be sure to stop by the Cove Bar. And send me lots of pictures so that I can live vicariously through you.
