Please, please, please Tokyo Disney. Give me one good reason to like Plaza Restaurant. I had two dishes from Plaza Restaurant recently and both of them were terrible. The Seafood and Rice au Gratin was the worst thing that I've ever had in Tokyo Disney and the Beef and Vegetables over Rice was trying really hard to claim that spot. I know for a fact that I will not spend my hard earned money on either of them in the future. Over my dead ratty body!
Two dishes done and three more to go. If the three remaining dishes suck too, this will officially be the worst dining establishment that I've ever had the displeasure of eating in. I need a dish to step up to the plate. Nothing in life is perfect, but to know that something is so flawed in Tokyo Disney, the best Disney Resort in the world, has really screwed with my psyche. This mental instability might actually change your Honorable Rat. I dread to even think about what could happen if this continues. I could become a human being. No, no, no! I need a hero to slap this bad feeling that I have for Plaza Restaurant out of my system!
I've reviewed the Mickey Handwich before and didn't have nice things to say about it. There's a slight difference in this version though. The last one I tried was the Roasted Chicken Handwich. This time, I was gonna go with the Fried Chicken Mickey Handwich. I decided to forego the other two rice dishes that I haven't tried from Plaza Restaurant because they looked like they might add to the negativity that I already have for this place.
Just like it's cousin, the Fried Chicken Mickey Handwich had only one piece of lettuce. I would have liked for it to contain more vegetables. One small, sad piece of lettuce is not gonna suffice, but... Wait, there's a but?! Yes! There is hope Ratketeer! But, it tasted way better than it's cousin.
The bun was good, just like the Roasted Chicken Mickey Handwich's. I love the texture and taste of Bao buns and this one was no different. Soft, a little springy and a little sweet with the added cuteness of it being shaped like Mickey's hands. On paper, the only difference between the two is the way the chicken is cooked. Roasted versus fried. When you actually experience both of them, they are worlds apart.
The chicken in the Fried Chicken Mickey Handwich was perfect. It was crispy and that complemented the texture of the Bao bun really well. The chicken was marinated in soy sauce and ginger giving it a salty undertone with a gingery kick. Combine this with the sweetness from the Bao bun and you've got yourself one hell of a sandwich. Way more flavorful than the roasted chicken version. Amazing how one little change can affect the whole experience. I asked for a slap and I got one from this Mickey Handwich. A slap that I thoroughly enjoyed!
Honorable Rating: Mmm, This Is Good (4/5)
