Dine at Harryhausen’s

In honor of Imaginerding’s tribute to Ray Harryhausen, I thought it only fitting to do my own tribute…a la Monstropolis.

You’ll recall, of course, that Harryhausen’s was the place to dine in Pixar’s Monster’s Inc., and where Mike took Celia for a special evening out.

The restaurant showcases some of Monstropolis’ very best monsterrific Asian dining, incorporating sushi a la carte dishes like the Spider Roll (hairy spiders in a used seaweed wrapper), appetizers like Swill and Sour Soup (varmint medley in a miso broth), entrees along the lines of Ickki Ishikari (soft shell blab with leech and lentil puree), and desserts like Green Tea Ice Scream. Luckily, they still have Sake on the menu.

Of course, you’ll hear all about Harryhausen’s as you wait for your taxi in Monster’s Inc, Mike and Sully to the Rescue in Disney California Adventure ;-)

Happy dining!

    In my idea for a Monsters Inc subland at DHS’s Pixar Place, (which would include the roller coaster idea and moving the Laugh Floor from the MK), I’d add a Harryhausen’s eatery. It would be a nice change of pace from the other options at DHS.

    Maybe if I go into Imagineering, I’ll suggest it.

    I wonder what the menu items would be, DisneyandBeyond!! The ones on this menu aren’t very appetizing…maybe it could be a Harry Potter-esque experience! ;-)

    Well, the whole story behind the subland, as it is in the Laugh Floor, is that the Monsters are allowing Humans into their world. Maybe the Monsters make a human friendly menu for their guests.

    Maybe you could ask for a Monster menu as a free souvenir. :)

    I agree, with those menu items I don’t see many people wanting to try most of those items as they aren’t very appealing to most. If you want a Fear Factor/Survivor experience though I suppose this would be your place.

    It’s all part of business, if you want people to come you need to make food that people will find good to eat.

    As well, I hope they sort of kept the layout from the movie. I never new about Harryhausen’s being a reference to Ray Harrhausen though but as always, Pixar slips a little something in there. It’s a great point to reference sine he was into making Monster films.

    I wonder if they have the To-Go boxes that you can fit a kid in!
