Guest Review: New Quick-Service Eats at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Thanks to one of our readers, we have a mini-review of the new food happenings at Disney’s Animal Kingdom — including a vegetarian cart in Asia, and fresh-cut fruit bowls at Harambe. And just wait until you see the gorgeous fruit salad at Tamu Tamu Refreshments…

Disney’s Animal Kingdom has introduced several yummy new treats this Summer! We’ve told you about the brand new Sundowner Celebration already, and here are a few other new additions for those trekking through this gorgeous theme park in Walt Disney World!

Bradley Falls Kiosk

As we announced on our Disney Food News Pin Board this week, Bradley Falls Egg Roll stand has changed its menu.

It now offers Summer Rolls (a different recipe than was there before), an Asian Noodle Salad, a Lychee Salad, and Fresh Edamame!

The Asian noodles are sweet, sour, and spicy with fresh broccoli, snow peas, carrots, and red pepper with a hint of sesame oil. The dish is garnished with black sesame seeds and green onion!
