First look at menus for Disney's Sanaa restaurant at Animal Kingdom Lodge
I just got a first look at the menus for Sanaa
, the Indian flavored restaurant scheduled to open May 1 at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge
Holy cow, is that beef short ribs next to a pork chop? So much for authenticity.
See the menus for yourself at scottjosephorlando.com.
Scott made the point on his blog, but I'll make it again here... at least Disney's offending
Ok, so not THAT authenic, but then again, what else would the serve?
Chicken? Vegetables? You know, Indian food?
Well I do know many Muslims who love ribs and many Hindus that love a juicy steak. I think its how you want to practice, but maybe they should take off the Authentic part. Still, the food looks tasty! Likely this will be a fine addition to AKL!
Beef one the menu does not automatically make something non-authentic. Not all Indians are Hindu, and therefore not all Indians avoid beef.
I would suggest that everyone click through to Scott's website and read the menus. I know that I'm just having fun with them here.
Sounds interesting to me.
For all the great restaurants in Disney, they are still Disney restaurants. The most authentic food in all of Disney is at the established restaurants that are on Disney property and not the Disney restaurants themselves. I have eaten around the world and around the Epcot lagoon and the most authentic part of the dining experience is the atmosphere; plain and simply put, Disney food is prepared in a line kitchen and therefore loses alot in translation to that cooking format. Not to poke at anyone who is in love with the Disney fare, but it is theme park food any way you slice it. Although, I do like that Yakitori combo for some reason : )
...and the Turkey legs in Frontierland
