Disney has kept most the the details of Tiffins Restaurant firmly under wraps. We can’t wait to hear more about this signature dining location, which is scheduled to open at Disney’s Animal Kingdom later this year!
What we do know is that Tiffins, which is slated to serve both lunch and dinner, will celebrate “the art of travel,” and will serve dishes inspired by the lands that are celebrated in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
The Orlando Sentinel’s Heather McPherson recently had the chance to sample some of the plates.
She tried three different dishes. The first, Black-Eyed Pea Fritters with Roasted Sweet Peppers, Yogurt, Zhough and Peppadew Puree, is reminiscent of a falafel, but it’s a little heartier. (Just in case you’re wondering like we were, Zhough is a green chile paste with its origins in Yemen.)
It looks as though Tiffins will also make an effort to use responsibly harvested seafood as well, as Sustainable Seasonal Fish Crudo with Roasted Corn Salsa, Lime, and Smoked Sea Salt was another item that was sampled. The dish capitalized on the hot trend of Crudo, which is an Italian method of preparing raw fish.
Finally, Honey-Glazed Coriander Spiced Pork Ribs will feature a sweet and flavorful take on a favorite, with the exotic flavors of Coriander bringing an unexpected complexity to the floral flavors of the honey.
We can’t wait to get our first taste of the menu! Stay tuned to Disney Food Blog for more details about this highly anticipated spot!
