Just a few days ago, in fact, we learned more about Pandora’s dining options, which include Satu’li Canteen, the restaurant’s main dining establishment, and Pongu Pongu, a drink station run by an expat who visited Pandora and decided to stay and set up shop for the long-term.
Pongu Pongu will be home to an exclusive Pandora snack — Lumpia! The cast of the ABC daytime cooking show, The Chew, offered a sneak preview on today’s episode!
Lumpia is a popular street food in the Philippines and Indonesia. It’s of Chinese origin and can be compared to egg rolls. Though typically filled with savory veggies and meat filling, Disney has created a sweet take on the snack. At Pongu Pongu, the rolls will be filled with pineapple cream cheese.
And the lucky ducks who host The Chew got to try them…
Among the reactions? “Wow!” (Note the thumbs up from Michael Symon). (Not that they’d be allowed to say anything else, but…whatever.)
To summarize the tasting, Clinton Kelly said they taste exactly like “pineapple cream pie in an egg roll.”
So, there it is… the very first taste of Pandora! Oh, and if you’re reading this on March 9th, there is still time to set your DVR or carve out time to catch Nightline on ABC for an in-depth look at the new land TONIGHT!!
Will you be trying Lumpia at Pongu Pongu? Please let us know with a comment!
