A Vegetarian’s Review of Galaxy’s Edge Plant-Based Items!
Even in a galaxy far, far away, tucked away on the distant planet of Batuu…there are apparently plenty of vegetarians like myself! On a recent visit to Hollywood Studios, I found myself in the Park for longer than I had anticipated and I was getting hungry for lunch.
Luckily for me, I just so happened to be in Galaxy’s Edge where there are plenty of plant-based options for vegetarians (and vegans) like me! I opted to try not one, but TWO of Galaxy’s Edge’s signature plant-based items…so without further ado let’s get into it!
Docking Bay 7
To my surprise and delight, there was a mobile order window available for immediate pick up at peak lunchtime at Docking Bay 7! I opted for one of the plant-based offerings that has graced the eclectic menu since opening: the Felucian Garden Spread!
Featuring plant-based meatballs, a creamy cucumber hummus, and triangles of toasted pita bread, this has always been my go-to lunch since Galaxy’s Edge opened. Served with three big ‘meatballs’, the dish is extremely filling and perfect for fueling up for a long afternoon of saving the Rebellion. I love how dense the meatless meatballs are and how hearty they make the dish!
What I really like about this dish is that, combined with toasted pita and creamy hummus spread, the entire platter will fill up even the hungriest of travelers without feeling weighed down or sluggish.
I’ve loved this platter since Batuu opened, so I was expecting perfection from Docking Bay 7. Every bite was just as good as always and I highly recommend it even for non-vegetarians!
Docking Bay 7 has always been a hit for me, but until just a few weeks ago, Ronto Roasters was completely off my radar. They are famous for the Ronto Wrap which I have heard very good things about…but was never able to try since it features both sausage and pork.
Ronto Roasters just debuted a brand new, plant-based ‘Zucchi Wrap’ that was made for folks with my vegetarian tendencies…so of course I had to give it a try!
A long piece of grilled zucchini acted as the meat in this handheld sandwich-style wrap. On its own, the zucchini is simply what I described- grilled zucchini. The chickpea onion slaw and the creamy vegan dressing are what sent this item to the top of plant-based lunch options at Walt Disney World!
I don’t like onions so I was a little leery about the chickpea slaw, but the whole chickpeas accompanied by a very spicy sauce masked any onion flavor that may have tried to overpower the wrap.
I really liked the Zucchi Wrap and would definitely opt to get it again! Similar to the Felucian Garden Spread, the Zucchi Wrap was very filling and left me very satisfied and brimming with energy to continue my Park Day! My only word of warning is if you are sensitive to any kind of spice, this may not be the wrap for you. The spiciness wasn’t overwhelming by any means, but those with a very low spice tolerance may want to opt for the Flucian Garden Spread in this case.
Overall, both items score a 9/10 from me, making them two items I can highly recommend to the MickeyBlog community!
