There are a lot of still new things to enjoy at Animal Kingdom, and today we’ve got the scoop on a few of them!
Over at Tiffins, the much-lauded signature restaurant that embraces travel and adventure, diners may experience not one but two prix fixe menus! The first prix fixe option is designed for busy days — days when the restaurant has lots of ADRs lined up. Offerings include Braised Wagyu Pozole and Grilled Swordfish.
The second prix fixe option will be offered on not-so-busy days and offers a trio of appetizers, choice of entree including swordfish, wagyu, grilled chicken, or a noodle bowl, and a trio of desserts. Both menus are served only 11:30AM to 3:30PM.
Meanwhile, over in Pandora, visitors to the distant world can nosh on two new snacks! Both are available at Pongu Pongu, which until recently only served one edible delight: the Pongu Lumpia (which is delicious!) in addition to beverages. Now guests can feast on the Viper Wolf Paw.
This is essentially a cinnamon roll in the shape of, we have to assume, a Viper Wolf’s paw. It’s topped with shaved almonds, which lend a nice crunch.
This is a typical Disney World cinnamon roll, so don’t expect any surprises. But for $3.99 (or a snack credit!), it’s a good size and makes a satisfying snack if you’re, say, killing time in the line for Flight of Passage.
The second new pastry at Pongu Pongu is the Moara Coffee Cake, another cinnamon-y treat…but this time with a TON of food coloring.
This has a typical coffee cake flavor — heavy on the cinnamon. The bright swirls of color are just for show; they do not add any flavor. The cake itself is nice and moist, so if you prefer a drier, crumbly coffee cake, this one isn’t for you. (One has to wonder if the copious amounts of added food color might be to blame/thank for the moistness of the cake… .)
The topping has icing mixed in, which added some extra sweetness in addition to that awesome crumble.
The Moara Coffee Cake is $3.79 (and Disney Dining Plan Snack Credit eligible), so it’s also fairly reasonably priced. It’s really nice to have a couple of good pastry options, since so many guests are spending their early Animal Kingdom hours checking out the new rides.
