I tell people all the time that everything at Disney World is my favorite, and the FOOD ranks pretty high on my list of Favorites. Before our last trip, I did a good bit of research of all of the food options so I could have a good plan going in. The trip before, I felt overwhelmed by options and didn't know what was better and wished I had a better plan. I came home and felt like I missed out. This last time, however, the food was one of my favorite parts of the trip.
Pot Roast Macaroni and Cheese at The Friar's Nook
This little Nook is located in Fantasyland right around the corner from the Carousel and in between Princess Fairytale Hall and Winnie The Pooh.
I like to think of myself as a Mac 'n Cheese connoisseur, and I can without question say that this is the best Mac 'n Cheese I've ever had in my life. I don't think I can over-sell this one. It's a great use of a quick service credit on your dining plan and I just don't see yourself regretting it unless you hate mac 'n cheese or pot roast.
They also serve BBQ Chicken Mac 'n Cheese and Original with Panko Bread Crumbs. See the full menu here.
The one down side to the Friar's Nook is that seating is pretty limited. It might be best to get it and find seating elsewhere in the park, or be prepared to wait for a table to free up.
Fish and Chips at Yorkshire County Fish Shop
This shop is located just inside the England Pavilion in the World Showcase. The seating area is right by the lake, and when we were there (around 11:30 am) it was a really peaceful and not super crowded.
It was delicious and they serve it HOT and fresh. If you are trying to stretch dining credits, this is a great place to do that at. Each entree has 2 fairly large pieces of fish and "chips" (fries). Everyone in our group loved it, even those not too keen on fish.
The Harambe Market is located in the Africa section of Animal Kingdom on your way to the Safari. It is street-style African cuisine with 4 different walk-up windows. From people who have been to Africa, I was pretty impressed with the authenticity represented. From the food to the venue, it felt like stepping into Africa.
The seating area is a little bit larger than most and it was not difficult to find a table. Most tables have large umbrellas, so it is also a nice place just to sit and have a break in the shade.
There is a good bit of variety to order from: Sausages, Ribs, Tikka Masala, Chicken Skewers, and Flat Bread Gyros (which is what I had which was very tasty!).

Min and Bill's Dockside Diner
This little cutie is located on Echo Lake across from Animation Courtyard. I had the Mac 'n Cheese with Pulled Pork (see? I just love it so much!) while Kyle had the Chili Cheese Hot Dog. Like the Friar's Nook, seating is limited (though not quite as bad).
