You’ll recognize Bengal Barbecue by this cool carved sign, which may or may not be how we look when biting into one of the many skewers served up in this location!

And when we say skewers, we mean skewers, y’all! At present, Bengal Barbecue offers the Banyan Beef Skewers, Chieftain Chicken Skewers, Outback Vegetable Skewers, Safari Skewers, and Bengal Beef Skewers! Woo! They’re all tasty — and convenient!

But on her most recent visit, our Disneyland correspondent Heather Sievers (@DiningInDisney) opted for a couple of larger offerings (one served on a stick, the other a bun). The Kalua Pork Sandwich was a big hit — and just, well, big!

Served on a Hawaiian Bun and topped with Pineapple-Jalapeño Salsa and Spicy Hoisin Sauce, the perfect pulled pork was delicious! The soft bun was a good accompaniment.

And the tropical salsa added some nice contrast, with fresh fruit and vegetables combining for a spicy-sweet bite.

The Macaroni Salad side is a classic and doesn’t pull any culinary punches. But it’s creamy and a nice accompaniment.

Also served with the Macaroni Salad and the Sandwich is a bag of Maui Onion Potato Chips.

You could happily eat these sides separately as, perhaps, they are intended to be eaten.

Or you can hack your sides by crumbling some potato chips on top of the macaroni. Seriously. Starches on top of carbs is our favorite food group.

So Heather completely recommends the Kalua Pork Sandwich, but if you’re looking to try Bengal Barbecue’s famous skewers, you might want to opt for the Bengal Rice Plate. This combo plate includes your choice of two skewers plus a bed of jasmine rice and a side of citrus-miso slaw.

This is another instance where the real life offering surpassed the picture on the sign. The Rice Plate is loaded! Heather opted for the Safari Skewer — asparagus wrapped in bacon — and the Bengal Beef Skewer.

The Citrus-Miso Slaw is packed with lots of components and textures, like edamame, sesame seeds, and cabbage. The rice was simple but a good base for the skewers.

Bengal Barbecue is also serving a new Pork Belly Skewer — and it looks terrific!

Of course, a visit to The Bengal Barbecue pretty much always needs to include a Jungle Julep. We love the Jungle Julep — and it’s just as refreshing and tasty as ever!

Jungle Julep is a slushy combo of Pineapple, Orange, Lemon, and Grape Juices. And it’s delicious!

We totally recommend The Bengal Barbecue for, well, everything. So if you’re in Adventureland and in need of a snack (or a meal or neither but you just like to eat constantly like we do), head on over!

    Had the pork belly skewer recently and it was delicious! Also tried the Jungle Julep for the first time. Loved it! It reminded me of a pink Starburst (my favorite).

    Greg, as far as we know, many of the skewers themselves are gluten free, but the sauces may not be. You’ll definitely want to check with the cast members at Bengal Barbecue and ask for allergen info to be sure.
