Review: Breakfast at the New Satu’li Canteen in Animal Kingdom’s Pandora

Kaltxi from Satu’li Canteen!

(That’s “Hello” in the Na’vi language!)

We’re back at the fast-casual restaurant in Animal Kingdom’s brand new land, Pandora — The World of AVATAR (despite the seriously crazy lines that still plague the land since its opening)!

Officially open at long last, guests are able to visit the moon of Pandora, as the story goes, thanks to ACE: Alpha Centauri Expeditions. Now that humans and the Na’vi coexist in peace, we are all welcome to explore the gorgeous landscape, and experience two new attractions with the Na’vi River Journey and Avatar Flight of Passage.

And the Satu’li Canteen is available to serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner to all the interplanetary travelers on expeditions of their own! We’ve already explored the options on the Lunch and Dinner menu, and now we’re back for a bit (or a lot!) of Breakfast.

So we recommend staying home this weekend instead of braving the insanity that is the three hour wait to get IN TO Pandora, and then the three hour wait to ride any of the rides…and watch our Pandora videos instead!! ;-D

Review: Smokey Bones (Bourbon-n-Bacon) Chocolate Shake at Trilo-Bites in Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Y’all already know about the new grown-up drinks being served up in Pandora at the Pongu Pongu lounge, but that’s not the only place you can get something new and boozy in the Animal Kingdom! Nosiree!

If you happen to find yourself on the other side of the park in the land of cartoonish dinosaurs, stroll up to the window of Trilo-Bites and take a gander at their (changing-with-some-frequency) little menu.

News and Review: Snacks from Pandora — The World of AVATAR in Disney’s Animal Kingdom

It’s almost time for the official grand opening of Pandora: the World of Avatar, but several DFB team members were able to secure an Annual Passholder Preview so that we could give you all the scoop on the foods and drinks you’ll find in Walt Disney World’s newest land.

We’ve covered the Build-Your-Own-Bowl options at Satu’li Canteen and sucked down more than a few boba balls and some green beer at Pongu Pongu.

So today, we’re trying three Pandoran prepackaged snacks, which you can find in various locations in Pandora. And these are totally thematic, people!

First up is the Teylu Gummi Candy. As the story goes, teylu are similar to shrimp and serve as a main source of protein for the Na’vi people. We can’t say the same for the gummies (no protein here!), but they definitely look the part!

They’re skewered on a stick, just as the Na’vi might skewer their teylu to cook over a fire. Great detail, right? Flavors here are, thankfully, not shrimp, but instead: Dragon Fruit, Lemon, and Fruit Punch.

Review: Mr. Kamal’s Fries at Mr. Kamal’s in Disney’s Animal Kingdom

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.

In the past, it’s been my go-to spot for vegetarian snacks. They’ve included the aforementioned falafel, hummus, edamame, Asian noodle salad, and samosas.

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.) [Read more…]
