Disney Springs is a food lovers’ paradise! There are tons of great spots to grab a bite. From James Beard Award-winning chefs’ cuisine to CYO pizza, there is something for everyone!
A decade ago Disney Springs (Downtown Disney back then) might not have been the hot spot for food, but trust us, things have changed! In fact, the best thing you eat all vacay might be found at the Springs.
Here are 5 of our favorite dishes at Disney Springs:
1. Spare Ribs at Morimoto Street Food
Brought to you by Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto, Street Food is the quick-service walk-up window at Morimoto Asia. And while everything is delish, these Spare Ribs are quite possibly the best ribs I’ve ever had. They literally fall off the bone. they’re tangy and sweet, and now I am literally drooling.
Try the spare ribs…trust us.
2. Chicken Croquetas at Jaleo
Jaleo by Jose Andres is one of the six James Beard Award-winning chefs’ restaurants in Disney Springs (so is Morimoto above). And these Chicken Croquetas are a signature item of his that show up on his menus around the country. Not only do these literally take days to make following his grandmother’s recipe, but they come adorably presented. You see, as a child, Jose’s mother often told him to keep his shoes off the table, so at his other locations, these Croquetas are served on a specially designed shoe. But because we’re at Disney, they are presented on a pillow modeled after the one that presented Cinderella’s glass slipper.
And did we mention they’re fabulous?
3. Burrata at Wine Bar George
Wine Bar George is brought to us by Master Sommelier George Miliotes. It has over 140 wines to choose from, but you can also get carefully crafted cocktails and small plates. Wine Bar George also serves a delightful brunch — which is where we found this item on our list. It seems simple, but the Burrata is a home run. Fresh cheese, candied bacon, big chunks of avocado, and an olive oil drizzle? Yes. Please.
4. Air Pirate’s Cargo Loaded Pretzel at Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar
Do you love pretzels? Do you love meat? Do you love cheese? If you answered yes to all three then you’ve got to check out Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar! They have a seasonal special right now that will blow you away! It’s a giant pretzel (which they have on the regular menu all the time) LOADED with meats and cheeses and yumminess. And don’t worry — it still comes with the beer cheese fondue.
5. Fried Chicken at Homecomin‘
Homecomin’ is a southern-style restaurant by Chef Art Smith, James Beard Award winner and former personal chef to Oprah. The spot has tons of southern classics, including moonshine cocktails on tap. Everything we’ve had is delightful, but you can’t go wrong with the chef’s famous Fried Chicken!
