Editor’s Note: In addition to the peanut dipping sauce, sweet and sour sauce is now being offered again. Thanks to Disney Mom Leslie for this update!Thanks to Disney Mom’s Panelist and DFB Friend Leslie Krzan for reporting on menu changes at ‘Ohana in Disney’s Polynesian Resort.
We’ve got some interesting news about a few menu updates at guest favorite restaurant, ‘Ohana.
According to a server, changes were made to the menu here about a month ago with the posted menu outside of the restaurant still showing the old menu items. Let’s take a look at what’s been updated with this menu-go-round.
‘Ohana Salad Dressing Update
The fan-favorite honey lime dressing has been a stand-out at ‘Ohana as well as a much requested recipe, however it did not make the latest menu cut. Here’s Leslie’s take:
The new salad features a passion fruit vinaigrette with chunks of passion fruit and mandarin oranges. I don’t eat salad, but my husband said the salad was just OK. He really liked the old honey lime dressing. In fact, he usually eats the whole bowl of salad himself, but left about half of it this time.
DFB reader Anne T. also wrote to let us know about the change. She feels similarly about the new dressing: “The new dressing is still good, but not as good as the honey lime,” she says.
‘Ohana Stir-Fried Veggie Update
The vegetable dish has changed as well with this recent menu update. Here’s what Leslie discovered:
The veggies now resemble more of a stir fry with mushrooms, onions, and peppers added to the broccoli. The old broccoli was one of my favorites. I really liked the garlic flavor of it, but now the broccoli really soaked up the flavor of the onions and peppers. I only ate the broccoli out of it. My husband liked it a lot. In my opinion, it was good, but I really miss the garlic sauté.
Finally, it looks like even the dipping sauces have taken a hit in the new menu. Leslie reports:
The trio of sauces is gone. Now, only the peanut sauce is served.
We’re sorry to see the changes, but this isn’t the first time we’ve seen ‘Ohana change up its menu. You can read about several other changes in our memoir about the Maui Scalloped Potatoes!
NOTE that Disney menus change regularly, and ‘Ohana often has “trial changes” for its menu where the restaurant tests potential menu options. Your experiences may differ from the ones shared above.
