The Bengal Barbecue in Disneyland’s Adventureland is the place to go for interesting eats — whether you’re a meat eater, a veggie lover, or somewhere in between! It’s long been an awesome spot to grab a snack, and now Bengal Barbecue is serving up some stellar entrees!
We can all use a few tips when it comes to planning vacations at Disney. And of course, we think the food is just about the most important part of the trip!
Budgeting for all of the special meals that you’d like to enjoy is a big concern. And it may seem impossible to cut corners and save a little here and there while still enjoying yourself. But with a little creative planning, you can find some wonderful meals at some of the coolest places, all for less than you might think.
Previously, we shared our Top Picks at Walt Disney World for Meals Under $20. Today, we’re back to celebrate some fantastic meals that you can enjoy at Disneyland for around $20 or less. This is by no means exhaustive — there are lots more where these came from. But for now, come with us and check out some of the great options we have to share! [Read more…]
Did you know that Bengal Barbecue (Disneyland skewer spot extraordinaire) just turned 25 years old?
So, what better way to celebrate than a stop for some — okay, make that ALL — the skewers on the menu (and maaaaaybe a few other treats to boot)! That’s exactly what I did on my recent trip to Disneyland.
Say hello to the big ol’ scary Tiger, because we’re FINALLY heading back to Bengal Barbecue! (I missed you!)
So, what’s the scene like in this Adventureland spot? Well, you’re pretty much looking at it 😉 .
Ok, that’s not entirely true. There are a few umbrella-covered tables nearby, but portability is really the name of the game here (in essence, it’s a kiosk). Still, even for a space this small, it’s certainly not without a few Disney details.
And the food itself plays a part in creating the atmosphere, too, since you can watch Cast Member grill masters at work, creating your order with a side of char-grilled smells wafting through the air. This chick, by the way, was awesome.
And what are they grilling [Read more…]
Here at DFB, we talk a little about sweet snacks. You know, now and then.
Ok. We talk about them a LOT. And when we aren’t talking about them, it’s probably because we’re eating them. So we can talk about them some more.
But that shouldn’t lead you to believe that we love savory snacks any less.
I’ve talked about many of my favorite sweets, and even a few sweet and salty options. But today, I’m giving the post over completely to the non-sweet team.
These guys can double as a meal if you’d like them to. Or they can just give you that little boost between breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Let’s take a closer look at some of my favorites.
Flavored Popcorn at Cozy Cone Motel
Recently, I discovered a stand in Epcot that’s offering one of the best things ever — Flavored Popcorn! While we’ve seen the reports of such delights from Tokyo Disneyland, it’s the first time something besides Caramel Corn has made much of a splash at Walt Disney World.
And inside that Popcone, there are some yummy Flavored Popcorn options. They change up every once in a while, so you’ll never know what you might get!
Personally, I’d be pretty happy with either Dill Pickle OR Nacho Cheese!
Which one would you choose?
Skewers and Tiger Tails at Bengal Barbecue
Bengal Barbecue is one of my favorite stops for a quick bite in all of Disneyland. In fact, it made my Top 10 List of Favorite Disneyland Fast Food Joints.
The spot is little more than a stand with a grill. Don’t look for scads of seating; there’s not much. But what they do have plenty of are delicious savory bites that can serve as either a snack or a meal.
And the name of the game here is Meat on Skewers. (Okay…there are a few veggies, too.)
I have a hard time choosing a favorite at Bengal, so I’ll show you a bunch! I like to get a few of the different options and share. (Or not.)
I recommend starting with the Chieftain Chicken Skewer. Chunks of Chicken Meat are grilled and then smothered in a sweet, slightly spicy Chili Sauce.
But then, ya gotta try the [Read more…]
