My DH loves buffalo also. He has not tried the one in Epcot but he ordered it at Cali Grill and said it was better than the one at Artist Point.

I thought you meant the city. I was going to say, that's not possible.

Is bison and buffalo the same? I've had bison. Not a big fan.

Now buffalo mozzarella. That's good stuff. Fresh tomato, balsamic oil...mmmmm.

A little infotainment- you probably ate Bison

Early American settlers called bison "bufello" due to the similar appearance between the two animals, and the name "buffalo" stuck for the American variety. But it's wrong.

The American bison (Bison bison) lives only in North America, while the two main buffalo species reside in Africa and Asia. A small population of bison relatives called the European bison (Bison bonasus) lives in isolated parts of Poland.

Like buffalo, bison belong to the Bovidae family, which includes more than 100 species of hoofed mammals, called ungulates " buffalo, bison, antelopes, gazelles, cattle, sheep and goats. Two main buffalo species exist: African cape buffalo and Asian water buffalo.

If you were to stand eye-to-eye with a buffalo species and a bison " and neither killed mowed you down " you'd notice stark physical differences. Unlike any buffalo species, the American bison sports a large shoulder hump and a massive head, which gives this symbol of the West its burly appearance.

One of friends husbands is head cowman at a buffalo farm about 5 miles from me, I do remember eating buffalo before but not for ages, this has reminded me to pop over there next week.

I go over say hi to the buffalo then proceed to go buy a pack of sausages made from their herd. It's almost as good as picking my own biggrin . There is also now the Bombay sapphire gin distillery 3 miles further down the road.... Um maybe I can convince my friend to drive me on a gin and buffalo run wink

That menu is probably wrong and should say Bison, not Buffalo. They rarely ever serve Buffalo in the states and not I Disney at all I am sure. I have had the Bison at several restaurants in Disney and it has been excellent. Cali Grill makes an excellent Bison filet.
