I agree whole-heartedly, Robert. Despite getting little attention (I guess due to the basketball nature), NBA City is one of the best restaurants in Citiwalk. We went there on a lark (I hate basketball) and ended up being very pleasantly surprised by how good everything was...

Other than Mythos, I thought NBA City was the best place we ate during our 2007 Orlando trip.

Did you get dessert, Robert?

We tried two different desserts when we went to NBA City, both based on our waiter's recommendation: one was a lightly fried cheesecake (I want to say it was called Towering Cheesecake, or something like that), and one was fresh strawberries fried in a light tempura batter then rolled in cinnamon (Cinnamon Strawberries, I think they were called).

Man, they were AWESOME desserts. If you did not get at least one of those two desserts, stop back by NBA City some night just for dessert and enjoy. You will not be disappointed.

We were filled after the entrees, and in a hurry to get to IoA, so we skipped dessert. But we'll put that back on the 'to-do' list now.

I'm very shocked - I had heard nothing but bad things from this place years back, but hey - you haven't led me wrong yet, Robert. I'll give it a shot. [PUNNED]

Wow... I'm glad I'm not the only one to have had a horror story with United. How's yours go?

Despite my low expectations when we booked with them for our recent Orlando trip (earlier this month), they totally managed to exceed all crappy expectations I had in place. Firstly, we gt delayed in Washington on our return for 72 hours. (Bear in mind that about 5 direct flights - and many more via a connection - leave to London ever day.) Then, they decide that we'd be much better off flying over to Denver to make the connection to London. (Which we obviously refuse, and end up getting a direct flight sorted out.) Then, they lose ourbag. (It actually ended up making the trip to Denver without us, somehow. Isn't that a bit of a safety issue, sending a bag without its owner?) Then, when the bag finally arrives back home, it looks like a disgruntled employee took out their anger over crappy wages on it. With a carving knife.

So yeah, overall not fantastic. And ditto - the last time I'll ever take United. But yay for some NBA City love!
