I am just going to be honest with you guys. I am slightly smitten with the new Disney Springs. We’ve been able to visit a few times on two different trips and the area is beautiful now. One of the best things about the improvements is the amount of counter service locations that are now available. And one of my favorites is Morimoto Asia Street Food.
Morimoto Asia Street Food is the counter service location outside of the main dining room which is a table service location. Yuhi Fujinaga, Executive Chef of Morimoto Asia, explained the street food concept and details during our visit (you can see them in the photo above.)
Not only does Chef Yuhi supervise the main dining room but the counter as well. That means the quality of the food that you get at both locations is outstanding. I love knowing that even without a reservation I can get something I’m going to love at Street Food.
Ordering is simple. You can view the menu on the street before you go up or at the counter. You’ll a variety of Pan-Asian foods so there is a little something for everyone. A glass case displays everything so you have a chance to look at all of your options too. In addition to the regular menu there are also specials. Make sure to check those out too! Seating is all outdoors but there is a nice patio with lots of shade.
I tried the Roasted Salmon Summer Roll with rice noodles, lettuce, and sweet chili sauce off of the specials. They are made with rice paper and were amazing. The salmon had great flavor and everything tasted so fresh. The sweet chili sauce added just enough spice to the rolls. It was the perfect meal for a hot summer day.
Next up was the Chicken Teriyaki Bao with spicy mayo, cucumber, lettuce, Teriyaki sauce, and soft-steamed Bao buns. This was awesome as well. Any of the bao dishes are a good choice if you not a very adventurous eater.
To drink I tried out the South Seas Slush which is a mix of black tea, lemonade, guava, mango, pineapple, and ginger. So good on a hot day! It had a nice mix of sweet and sour and is something I plan on getting again. You can also try out Popping Boba Tea (which looked delicious) and a selection of alcoholic drinks including Kirin beer and the Singapore Slush which has Yuzu lemonade and Kaffir lime vodka.
Morimoto Asia Street Food is another fun, unique, experience you can find at Disney Springs. The food is delicious, great quality, and is a good value when it comes to counter service locations at Walt Disney World. We can’t wait to visit again in October!
