We are anxiously awaiting the opening of Jaleo by Chéf Jose Andrés in Disney Springs this winter. Recently, we learned there would be a casual, quick service location at Jaleo when it opened. Now, we’ve learned more about that option!
Pepe by José Andrés will be located next to Jaleo, and will be the first brick-and-mortar version of Andrés’ popular Washington, D.C.-area food truck, Pepe.
Pepe’s menu will offer hot and cold Spanish-style sandwiches including bocatas and bikinis. You’ll also be able to choose from salads, soups, and sides — that can all be paired with Spanish Sangria!
Sandwich options will include:
- Pollo Frito: breaded chicken breast, alioli, bravas sauce, piparra peppers, gem lettuce, and sherry dressing
- Serrano y Manchego: served on crispy Pan de Cristal with tomato fresco
- Bocata de Vegetales: roasted peppers, onion, green asparagus, spinach, and manchego cheese on Pan de Cristal
“A bocata is a true taste of Spain, believe me. One bite and you are transported by the perfectly crunchy bread with all the flavors coming together in perfect harmony,” said Chef José Andrés. “Pepe has my favorite bocatas from all across Spain and I look forward to sharing them with guests at Disney Springs.”
When visiting Pepe be sure to check out the murals on the walls. They are by Marc Jesús, a Menorcan painter, featuring his ever-happy, blue-skinned female characters. Pepe and Jaleo are designed by Spanish designer Juli Capella and feature breathtaking exteriors and vibrant, theatrical interior décor representing the colorful and dynamic culture of Spain.
