Disneyland this morning released the first details about the menu at its upcoming Tropical Hideaway restaurant, which it is building on the site of the old Aladdin's Oasis/Tahitian Terrace, next to the Enchanted Tiki Room. And the first glance at that menu includes some details that might be familiar to Walt Disney World fans.
The new Adventureland eatery will overlook the exit of the Jungle Cruise and feature a couple of elements from another Disney expedition into a far-off land of exotic flora and fauna: Pandora - The World of Avatar at Disney's Animal Kingdom in Florida.
Tropical Hideaway's menu will feature the Sweet Pineapple Lumpia spring roll from Pandora's Pongu Pongu bar. The dessert features a pineapple and cream cheese filling. In addition, the Disneyland restaurant also will serve Bao (filled steamed buns), which appear on the menu at Pandora's Satu'li Canteen.
Instead of the Cheeseburger Bao served in Florida, California's menu is getting the more "grown-up" flavors, including a Spiced Vegetable Bao, a Kaffir Lime Chicken Bao, and a Bulgogi Beef Bao.
Tropical Hideaway also will serve a chilled ramen salad as well as other "tropical-inspired" snacks yet to be revealed. No prices or firm opening date yet, but Disney said that the restaurant will open before the end of the year. (FWIW, the Bao goes for $11 and the Lumpia for $3 in Florida.)
Down the street in Adventureland, Bengal Barbecue has expanded its menu along with its seating this year, adding a Kalua Pork Sandwich ($16), a shrimp Spring Roll ($7), a Hummus Trio ($6.49), along with a Bengal Rice Plate ($16), which includes a choice of two skewers ($4-6 separately), served with rice and a side of slaw. A Musubi Special is coming on September 7 for Halloween Time, too.Tweet
