NEW: Jalapeno Poppers and Fried Cauliflower Debut On The Menu In Disney World’s Magic Kingdom

Golden Oak Outpost is a counter service spot conveniently located between Frontierland and Adventureland in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. Featuring fried eats and outdoor seating, it’s the place to grab some Chicken Nuggets, Waffle Fries with Queso, or Chocolate Chip Cookies.

We enjoyed some Barbecue Chicarrons back in February, along with some Chili Cheese Waffle Fries, but these items were recently replaced with two new fried options: Jalapeno Poppers and Cauliflower!

It’s nice to have two new vegetarian snack options, and they both have promise!

The Cauliflower is a spicy battered, deep fried option served in a sizable portion. Unless you’re deeply committed to cauliflower, you can probably share these. ;)

While they’re described as spicy, we didn’t get a lot of spice from these. Truth be told, there was a definite lack of added flavor, so what you get is straight up cauliflower and (admittedly tasty) fried batter, but no real seasoning.

To add flavor, the Cauliflower comes with Garlic Ranch Dipping Sauce, which is delicious.

The Cauliflower is cut into reasonable sizes for frying and eating (no giant or miniature pieces here), and we appreciate the lovely, dark color.

And in case you’re concerned that the Cauliflower might be a little hard to bite into, fear not. It’s cooked all the way through and soft enough to bite into comfortably.

If you prefer your spicy food to be a little, um, spicy, you might opt for the Jalapeno Poppers here instead. While they don’t have a serious kick, they do at least offer a bit of the heat we expect from a jalapeno.

These are breaded before being fried, and they have a little crunch on the outside. It’s a bit spotty and could’ve been more consistently coated, but the added texture is nice.

These are an okay size. Each one probably requires two or three bites. And with the hot cheese inside, you might want to exercise a little caution anyway. :p

The interior is packed with Nacho Cheese, which is hot when first plated. (Ours had cooled a bit before we grabbed this pic.) We love that there’s plenty of cheese in there, though.

The Jalapeno Poppers are served with G.O.O. Sauce, which seems to be a thick raspberry sauce. We weren’t big fans of the poppers with the G.O.O. Sauce, but kudos for the creativity. The poppers were awesome with the Garlic Ranch Dipping Sauce from the Cauliflower dish, though, so be sure to ask for one of each if you’re just grabbing some Poppers!

It’s always fun to see what’s on the menu at Golden Oak Outpost, and with some effort, they tend to offer interesting eats in addition to old favorites. On this go ’round, we’re happy they’ve opted for two vegetarian options to keep things fresh!

    Is the cauliflower or poppers a snack credit? Would love to know the price point. Thanks!!

  2. DFB Sarah says

    Allyson: The Jalapeno Poppers are $5.49; the Cauliflower is $4.99. Both are snack credits. (Added a picture of the menu to the post in case you’re curious about the official descriptions or other menu items!)

    I was hoping the cauliflower would be like the version served at the Morocco booth during the Flower & Garden Festival. Sounds like it misses the mark!
