It’s back! Tangaroa Terrace Tropical Bar & Grill has reopened at Disneyland Hotel, and we are stoked! This quick service, fast casual restaurant brings an island vibe to breakfast, lunch, dinner, and grab-and-go in a refreshed space that’s a colorful homage to the islands! And did we mention there’s Dole Whip?!
Oh, yeah: there’s Dole Whip! You KNOW we’re here for that! But we’re also here for breakfast! So pull up a wicker chair and get ready to fill up — island style!
Breakfast at Tangaroa Terrace
Breakfast at Tangaroa Terrace features a small menu, but the entree options pack a big punch! You’ll see some items with familiar names — but nearly everything comes with an island twist!
That includes the Tangaroa Toast we featured in our review from yesterday’s coverage!
There’s a straightforward Breakfast Platter with eggs, hash browns, bacon, and fruit; but if you want to ride the wave of flavor, go for the Pineapple Upside Down Pancakes!
How fun are these? A full wheel of sweet pineapple is cooked into the trio of pancakes themselves, and a bright red maraschino cherry is placed in the center — totally capturing the spirit of the famous pineapple upside down cake on which these are modeled.
We loved the strong pineapple flavor — and there’s no escaping it, so if you’re on the fence about pineapple, these aren’t for you. But pineapple fans: dig in! We would definitely get these again!
The Breakfast Sandwich at Tangaroa has a deceptively simple name for a funky, delicious dish! This is a hashbrown topped with Kalua style pulled pork, brown gravy, and a fried egg. Chives add a little freshness — but have no doubt: this will stick to your ribs!
We were surprised to find that these seemingly disparate components really work well together! The crispy hashbrown is a great base for the meat and gravy, and the egg works with them as well!
But look: grab some napkins. And a fork and knife. The Breakfast Sandwich is not something you’ll want to walk around and eat. Embrace the mess, enjoy a leisurely meal on the patio at Tangaroa, and then let it fuel your fun all day long!
Hello! Tangaroa Terrace is bringing the fun — and an island vibe! — to its menu, and we love it! Unique flavor combinations and satisfying dishes are always a hit — and these provide much-needed fuel for a fun park day!
