The Three “Faces” of Disney’s Butter Chicken!

Hello, folks!  Mrs. All in WDW and I recently got an opportunity to meet a family friend at one of our favorite spots – Sanaa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Village.

You know, it’s hard for us to try something “different” when we go to Sanaa.  What I mean by that is, like most Disney fanatics who have eaten at this outstanding restaurant, we just love Sanaa’s bread service.

Their naan is incredibly fresh, hot, and soft.  Their spreads, or accompaniments, are delicious.  We can’t get enough of it.  In fact, we can’t not order it!

Of course, for me, personally, the same goes for Sanaa’s Butter Chicken.  A pretty well-known Indian dish of chicken that is pleasantly drowned in a mildly spiced curry sauce, Butter Chicken tastes phenomenal!

In fact, this dish is so good that Sanaa actually offers two recipes!

First, look to the center section of the restaurant’s menu.  You’ll find a set of options labeled “Potjie Inspired”.  Here, accompanied by rice, you can choose any two main dishes to highlight your meal.

Me?  Well, though all of this section’s entrees look great, I always double-up on Butter Chicken!  Deee-lish!

On this particular visit, Mrs. All in WDW went in a pleasantly different direction.  Under “Spice Route Favorites”, she selected Sanaa’s other Butter Chicken entree!  Way to go, dear!

Served with peas, carrots, rice, shallots, and cucumber, it, too, was very, very good.  In fact, it’s now on my “list” for next time!

Of course, I mentioned that Disney boasts three “faces” of Butter Chicken, now, didn’t I?  How so, you ask?  Well, it just so happens that Sanaa is a pretty inspiring restaurant.  It inspired this 2015 Epcot International Food & Wine dish, at least.

A “abbreviated” but delicious version, to be sure, this particular delight was a festival favorite of mine.  In fact, it earned the #3 spot in my infamous All in WDW Final Top 25!

So, there you have it, my friends.  The Three “Faces” of Disney’s Butter Chicken.  But, wait!  There’s more?!  Yes, folks, there is.  There is one last place at which Butter Chicken hides in Walt Disney World.

To this point, I have walked by the Namaste Cafe food truck in Disney Springs on countless occasions.  Sadly, it has always been before they’ve opened for the day.

They, too, are on my “list”, however.  Why?  Well, they serve Butter Chicken, of course!  One more stop for me to make in the future.  Have they been inspired by Sanaa as well?  I bet they have!

My friends, I have just two words for you … Butter Chicken.  If you find it, you have to try it … even if it’s just once!  It is phenomenal!  And, frankly, I think it’ll leave you wanting more and more!
