Lunch, Dinner, and Our Thoughts

Morimoto Asia Kitchen

Morimoto Asia has an all day menu so you’ll find the same great options for lunch and dinner. On our visit for lunch they were offering a lunch special. It’s not on the menu now so I’m not sure if it is still available. But we tried several items that are on the current menu.

We started with the Sake Sangria with asian pears, apple plum, tangerine juice, sake, light white wine, and plum wine. It was delicious! You can order by the glass or a carafe that serves 3 to 4 people. It’s a great option on a warm Florida day.

Next up was the Tuna Pizza which is a crispy tortilla, tuna sashimi, tomato, jalapeño, and anchovy aioli. It’s one of Drew’s favorites. I don’t eat a lot of spicy food or sashimi and even I thought it was wonderful.

The Chicken Bao, steamed buns, teriyaki chicken, lettuce, and spicy mayo, is one of our favorites. It’s great option to share. You can also find it at Morimoto Asia Street Food.

Morimoto Asia has become one of our favorite restaurants at Walt Disney World. The prices are really good in my opinion (especially for Disney) and the atmosphere is gorgeous. If you are looking to add something new to your Disney vacation or a great spot for a Disney date night, you can go wrong with Morimoto Asia.

    Though we did not have a strong experience at Morimoto Asia, I have recently read many reviews just like yours. We were there about 6 weeks after the opening, and perhaps things have gelled since. I agree with Jennifer- the Omakase Dining sounds and looks amazing! Though it seems we will never catch up with all that is new at Disney Springs, we may have to give this spot a second luck. Thanks for the inspiration!

    The atmosphere in Morimoto Asia is so exquisite. But I admit I couldn’t help but think about what happened to the rotating dance floor from when that building was a Pleasure Island dance club called “Mannequins”. We sat in the bar area the one time we ate there. I heard the round tables in the dining room have lazy susans built into them. Is that true? I wonder if that’s a tribute to Mannequins or just a coincidence.

    I’m not a huge sushi fan, but I do enjoy some Asian food. I’ll definitely have to check out Morimoto Asia the next time we visit Disney Springs!
