Bacon. Cheese. Burger.
When you hear these words, your probably don’t think ‘Hey, lets go to Disney for one.’ But now you can. The new Ale & Compass restaurant in the Yacht Club has a 100% vegan bacon cheeseburger, the Grilled Vegan Plant-based “Bacon Cheeseburger.” We were very skeptical. Especially since in the description there is mayo on the bread. When we sat down we told our waitress we were vegan and to leave off the mayo. She said “I’m pretty sure the mayo is vegan too, but let me double check”. So she did and when she came back we were both thrilled to find out even the mayo is vegan! Needless to say we both ordered one.
And there it is, a bacon cheeseburger from Disney. We tried all of the components separately to guess what brands they were. The bacon is Sweet Earth, the cheese is Daiya, and the patty is a Beyond Burger from Beyond Meat. Also on the sandwich were sautéed mushrooms & onions; along with the mayo, which was delicious. It comes on multigrain toast instead of a bun. But we didn’t miss the bun. It was so good. Our only wish is that the cheese was melted. Paired with the side of truffle fries, we both knew this was our new favorite meal at Disney. They only serve this item at lunch time, there is also a “Protein Bowl” (with vegan sausage!) available at lunch and dinner.
The Ale & Compass Restaurant has great vegan options for all three meals, we’ll definitely be back.
