Pommes Frites with Cajun Remoulade – Cafe Orleans

Disneyland is having quite the party, thanks to the Diamond Celebration commemorating Disneyland’s 60th anniversary this year. Special events, a gorgeous castle makeover, a stunning new night parade, updates to rides, and of course, fun celebratory foods are all a part of the experience.

While these fries at Cafe Orleans aren’t around just for the celebration (in fact, they’re something of a classic dish), they are certainly worth munching on!  

Not your typical boring fries, they’re tossed with Cajun seasoning, garlic, and cheese to make them something truly special. The Cajun remoulade, which is both sweet and spicy (and a lot like that dipping sauce you get with blooming onions), is the perfect partner to these crunchy appetizers.

I mean seriously, look at the pictures and tell me how it’s possible to resist them…  Even my non-spice loving kids could not get enough of these and that creamy sauce!
