There’s also three new bowl options: the Ribs Bowl, the Chicken Bowl, and the Roasted Vegetable. All three bowls come with cilantro rice, green salad base, green salsa and pico de gallo.
4. Cocktails, Mocktails and Appetizers – Restaurantosaurus- Animal Kingdom
Guests looking for the perfect place to kick back and unwind during your Animal Kingdom visit need look no further than the new Restaurantosaurus Lounge. Here guests can enjoy a selection of wines, beers as well as cocktails and mocktails. There are also some new yummy bites on the menu that make the perfect accompaniment. Some stand-out cocktails include the Tequilasaurus (a tart margarita), the Ferminted Fossil (a minty mojito), the Primordial Booze (pomegranate and lemonade with vodka), and the Carnotaurus Meteoritis (a bourbon sour). Mocktails (non-alcoholic) include the Teal Rex with pineapple and lemon juices, lemonade, and blue raspberry syrup, the Paleontology Punch with lemonade, Sprite, and cranberry, apple, pomegranate, and lime juices, and Raptor Refresher with cranberry and orange juice and strawberry purée. We recommend pairing this tasty drinks with a bowl of Sweet-and-Spicy Mixed Nuts or the Buffalo Chicken Dip served with house-made chips.

Get your sweet and savory all in one with this new over-the-top offering. This burger comes topped with American cheese, bacon jam, pickled onions, bbq bayou sauce and house-made pickles. However, the real draw is the fact that burger comes in a sweet beignet bun doused with powdered sugar.

There are also shareable platters including the Crispy Chicken Spring Roll served with pickled veggies or the Beef Carpaccio Tataki with thinly-sliced beef in a black pepper marinade topped with chilli oil. We also can’t wait to try the Tambu Mixed Grill Kebab with chicken, steak and shrimp served in a peanut sauce.
8. New Menu – Hungry Bear Restaurant – Disneyland
For the last tasty items on our list, we shift our attention to the West Coast where Hungry Bear Restaurant has added some delicious new items to its menu!
