New Menu for Victoria Falls at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge

Pam Brandon, Disney Parks Food Writer, announced the new menu for Victoria Falls at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge.

Just a flight of steps down from the beautiful lobby of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, Victoria Falls Lounge is a fun spot for cocktails or a great glass of South African wine. A new menu adds flavors of Africa and India from the resort’s various restaurants – substantial bites to pair with beverages.

The lounge’s name, by the way, comes from Africa’s breath-taking Victoria Falls, sighted in 1855 by David Livingstone, the Scottish missionary and explorer who named the magnificent falls in honor of Queen Victoria. (For a little trivia, the indigenous name is Mosi-oa-Tunya, or “the smoke that thunders.”)

A sumptuous plate of artisanal cheeses features Valdeon blue cheese, Petit Agour sheep’s milk cheese & Cabot Clothbound Cheddar with Marcona almonds, honeycomb, Egyptian flowers & wild strawberry gastrique. Messy-but-delicious tandoori-spiced chicken wings are flavored with garam masala, garlic, ginger, lemon, cloves, cinnamon and served with kicky sambal sour cream. Ditto the pork “wings,” served with tamarind barbecue sauce, crispy onions and cilantro.

Peri Peri Scallops features four pan-fried scallops with mealie pap (we Southerners call this grits), bacon lardons, coriander and chile butter. Another hot tapas is crispy chickpea bites, bite-sized fritters served with sag dahl, Tunisian olive oil, lemon balm, roasted eggplant salad and sautéed feta cheese.

Perfect for sharing, the African-inspired tapas is a generous assortment of dates, cumin green olives, sambal Calamata olives, Bresaola, sea salt pistachios, preserved lemon artichoke hearts, with dried banana and pumpkin seed crisps.

One of our favorites is the breads & spreads: oak-grilled pappadam, South African sea salt crisps, wheat pita and house-made lavosh served with hummus, mango chutney, lentil spinach and citrus spread.

It’s easy, no reservations, just stop by and grab a seat at the bar or a table.
