In celebration of the 25th Anniversary of Indiana Jones Adventure, Disneyland is currently under siege with several super-limited time only Indy-inspired menu items!
These offerings are only available starting today until March 8th, so you’ll need Short Round to really step on it to get you here in time to try them! And while we’re also on the search for the the Indiana Jones Dole Whip (in fair trade for one cursed idol) we’re starting with the specialty rib bowl!
The new Indiana Jones Adventure specialty Char Siu Pork Rib Rice Bowl is said to be lurking at Bengal Barbecue, an Adventureland hotbed of delicious skewered meat-activity!
The new bowl features ribs glazed with a Cantonese barbecue sauce, served on a bed of steamed rice and costs $16.99. (By the way, during our visit, a sign wasn’t out for this offering; however, we did find it listed on Mobile Order on the Disneyland app.)
And it looks like “fortune and glory, kid. Fortune and GLORY! This belongs in a MUSEUM!”
But the taste? Weeelllll…. the dish is nicely seasoned, but the dial could still be turned up on the flavor. The barbecue sauce selected to baste the ribs is even a little bit bland. And the fact that the accompaniment is simply steamed white rice doesn’t add much in the flavor department. If you do choose this dish during your own Indiana-inspired adventure, we’d highly recommended grabbing some of the available packets of soy sauce to go with it.
And the ribs themselves weren’t of the fall-off-the-bone variety. On the upside, the portion is decent, considering that Bengal Barbecue specializes primarily in skewer snacks. But altogether, the Char Siu Pork Rib Rice Bowl is… underwhelming.
BUT! There are two things more to mention: first, see the Official Alphabet of Mara Decoder card next to our dish?
Though you may have luck in additional locations, we’ve seen them being handed out here at Bengal Barbecue and also Adventureland Bazaar!
And second, there are more Indiana Jones Adventure treats in store to check out, and we’ll have them coming for you soon to see if things turn around, taste-wise, during today’s epic adventure… so stay tuned!
