We have treat for you today, as we stop by one of our favorite kiosks in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Mr. Kamal’s!
This little cart, located on the path that meanders between Africa and Asia behind the Tree of Life, has been home to some of our favorite vegetarian snacks for ages.
Recently, we enjoyed the falafel here, and it’s pretty decent.
Sadly, the samosas are off the menu for now. But in their place, Mr. Kamal has debuted another snack. Let’s check it out.
Mr. Kamal’s Seasoned Fries
So, I know that when I think of delicious Pan Asian or African food, I immediately think of french fries. Don’t you?
I dunno. Maybe Mr. Kamal’s been vacationing. In Belgium maybe? With a little side trip to Greece? (Hey, if Disney isn’t gonna give us the backstory, we’re just gonna have to make it up ourselves.)
But wherever the inspiration came from, it’s resulted in Mr. Kamal’s seasoned fries. Your fries come to you in a little recycled paper boat, and are topped with “Tzatzki Salad and Sriacha Ketchup.” We think that’s Mr. Kamal-speak for tzatziki and Sriracha. Bless his heart. Well, he makes swell snacks, so we won’t hold his poor spelling against him.
Anyhoo — the tzatziki salad is a saucy mix of cool tzatziki, cucumbers, and tomatoes. As we’ve noted before, Mr. Kamal’s tzatziki is a little on the bland side. But it’s not bad.
The real star here though is the Sriracha ketchup. We’ve had this condiment in other places, and we weren’t all that impressed. This is the real spicy deal. (If you’re worried about heat level, just request it on the side.)
The other great aspect of the snack is the ample seasoning on the fries themselves. They were great!
The serving size is pretty decent, and for the current price of $5.29 or a Disney Dining Plan snack credit, it’s a filling snack that will keep you going through safaris, jungle treks, climbing Mt. Everest, visiting Pandora, and the like. Or maybe even a trip to Belgium or Greece? Who knows where the day will take you.
Will you be stopping by Mr. Kamal’s to give his seasoned fries a try? Let us know if you’re anxious to try them!
