Homecomin’ is one of my favorite restaurants in Disney Springs. Both the drinks and the food are really good. If you like fried chicken, then you should definitely make a reservation here when they reopen. Each time I visit I tell myself that I should try something different, but I always end up getting the chicken and I’m never disappointed. Plus, they come with some delicious creamy mashed potatoes. The Church Lady Deviled Eggs are also delicious. You get a good portion, so it’s a good appetizer for sharing.
I’ve only had dessert at Homecomin’ once, but when I did I ordered the Hummingbird Cake. The picture below doesn’t do it justice, because I took it in a to-go container, but the cake is really good. It’s a pineapple-banana cake with cream cheese frosting. If you like banana bread and cream cheese then you should definitely try this cake. It was really good. It’s definitely a sharing dessert though. The slice was huge!
Check out Chef Art Smith’s Instagram tomorrow to make your own Hummingbird Cake at home! Happy baking!
