Sometimes the stars collide and really rockin’ things happen. This week, I was lamenting the fact that I won’t be able to get to Disney World to experience the Taste of Africa Street Party. But at the same time it’s been exciting to watch my friend, Brett Young, experience a Disney World trip that’s been a long time coming! Now what do you think happens next…
That’s right! Brett goes to the party — and takes a whole lot of food pictures!
But, first things first, here are the details on the party: It’s currently running from July 9 through July 24, 2010, and takes place nightly in Harambe Village in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The event is full of games, music, fun, and food; offerings include: food, wine, and beer; a music/dance party with Harambe’s DJ Khalifa and musical group Wasslou; animal education experiences, and more.
Now, let’s get to the photo tour. We’ll begin with a look at the “pamphlet” received by the attendees. This will give you a good idea of the layout and what items are available. I’m especially interested in the sugar cane juicing!
Here are a couple of signs depicting where the “good stuff” can be gotten:
Oh…and here’s the “good stuff!”
Over at the Tamu Kibanda, grab some Samosas with Mango Chutney (stick around to watch the Samosas Demonstration) and some Avocado Shrimp Salad:
Next door at the Tamu Tamu, indulge in a Mango shake or enjoy some Bobotie with Blatjang (an apricot fruit chutney) and flatbread with dips:
Here’s what’s on the menu at the Kusafiri Bakery during the Taste of Africa Street Party. The Banana Bread Pudding looks pretty much phenomenal, no? And the curried chicken looks fantastic! That beef looks a bit pink, but I betcha I’d try it anyway!
And finally, head over for some sugarcane juicing and taste-testing — along with a few games and dancing, of course!
Thanks again to Brett Young and his wonderful family for these awesome pics! It really makes me feel like I’m right there sampling the food (but, for once, I don’t have to work off the calories!).
