Dining Recon: Harambe Market at Animal Kingdom

Good morning, my friends!  Happy Monday!  Wait.  Are Mondays really ever “happy”?  Well, if you’re lucky enough to be in Disney, I guess it could be!

Sadly, today, Mrs. All in WDW and I are not in Walt Disney World.  Give us a few days.  Maybe we can remedy that situation for Thanksgiving!

In the meantime, let’s visit Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  In particular, let’s enjoy the cuisine at Harambe Market!

Full disclosure, it wasn’t Mrs. All in WDW and I doing the eating in this case.  Our partners – Doug Davis and Dennis Conroy – took care of the dining.

For our part, Mrs. All in WDW and I had popped by a month or so back, but it was at a time when the market was not yet open.  I snapped some shots of the restaurants, but we missed out on the food.

Before I share the report Doug and Dennis passed along on a recent show, let’s take a look at the menus.  My first reaction when I saw Harambe was … Hey!  Look at all the different “restaurants”!

“All the different restaurants”?  In truth, all of Harambe’s food counters serve a very similar – if not identical – menu.  No problem with that, I guess … if the food is good.

Doug and Dennis registered their opinions and recommendations in depth on Episode #304 of our podcast.  Give it a listen!  It consumes the first segment of the show.

What did they sample?  Well, they, and some friends and family, certainly teamed up on some “research”!  First, they sampled a All-Beef Gyro Flatbread.

It was served with a green papaya slaw and black-eyed pea salad.  Also served with those sides, Harambe’s Grilled Chicken Skewer looks a bit more enticing.

Finally, and I don’t want to “spoil” the show, both Doug and Dennis experienced the market’s Beef and Pork Sausage.

Fried in curried corn batter, it sounds intriguing, yes?  Hmmm.  In the end, the “boys” were not so convinced.  Again, check out the show!  They’ll let you know how best to enjoy Harambe Market!
