Pan-Asian Noodles Rock!  Let’s Eat Lunch at Kona Cafe!

What can I say?  I really love Kona’s Pan-Asian Noodles.  Seriously, folks, they’re phenomenal.

Of course, as I’ve said many times in the past, it’s their Pan-Asian Noodles with Chicken that I truly adore.  It even made my personal Top 5 WDW meals!

What?!  Yep, it surely did.  Check it out here!  This time around, however, as you’re about to see, I switched it up.

Mrs. All in WDW and I dropped by Kona Cafe on the last day of our most-recent trip to The World.  It’s one of our favorite stops for lunch!



We kicked it off with beer and sushi.   A decent combination?  Yes?  No?  Well, it worked for me.  A nice hearty IPA and a Lava Roll.  Delish!



Loaded with tempura shrimp, bay scallops, and spicy mayo, we’d had the roll before.  It was as good as we remembered.

Most always on better behavior than me, Mrs. All in WDW skipped the ale.  She also went the healthy route and enjoyed a Grilled Steak Salad.  She claims that it was just what she wanted.


Myself, I can’t escape the noodles.  I just can’t.  My entree, this visit, was Pan-Asian Noodles with … Shrimp!


Equally as delicious as its “feathered” counterpart, it was an unadulterated winner.

My friends, we truly do enjoy our experiences at Kona Cafe much more than we do the near-chaos of its neighbor – ‘Ohana.

I know, a controversial statement, to say the least, but, for us it’s true.  The menu has much more variety, and a table is almost-always available.


Kona Cafe.  If you can’t acquire a coveted spot at one of ‘Ohana’s tables, consider Kona as an alternative.  You won’t be displeased.

TONS of Food Pics! Dining Recon: Lunch at Kona Cafe!

My friends, I absolutely love posts that write themselves … with food pictures!  After all, I can only babble on just so much, you know?

few months back, Mrs. All in WDW and I met a few friends for lunch … at Kona Cafe!  Located in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, Kona is an outstanding venue for any meal.





For instance, remember our recent breakfast?  I published this delicious post back in early July.  Look at those pics!  Yum!

But, back to today’s point.  Lunch!  From “caterpillars” to volcanoes”, they have sushi!




And, they offer a plethora of desserts!  Check out that Banana-Chocolate Creme Brulee!





Of course, they offer, pretty much everything else in between.  Take a look!


On this day, we shared a trio of tasty appetizers.  The Pot Stickers, for example were fantastic!


You see, this is why I don’t buy China’s pot stickers at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.  Why taste them there, when you can get a much-better rendition at Kona?

Of course, the steamed buns at Food & Wine are usually phenomenal.  Then, again, so are these …


Pillowy soft and full of flavor!  Kona’s Steamed Pork Buns are well worth trying!

Finally, who can pass on Sticky Wings?  Simply delicious!


Naturally, that wasn’t the end of our lunch date.  Entrees followed quickly behind as one of our friends enjoyed a serving of Kona’s Big Island Tacos.  This is the Fish Taco.


Our other lunch companion raved about the Kona Surf and Turf Burger Deluxe!


Mrs. All in WDW took the healthy route and chose the cafe’s Grilled Steak Salad.


And, leaving the best for last, I just had to have “my” Pan-Asian Noodles with Chicken!  They are SO good!


Sadly, after all of those appetizers and entrees, we couldn’t even dream about touching a dessert.  Next time, perhaps!

Fans, you’ll find a “ton” of culinary options at the Polynesian’s Kona Cafe, but, better yet, you’ll discover a very high level of quality.  I cannot recommend the Pan-Asian Noodles highly enough!

Friendly service, great food, and it won’t break your wallet.  What more could we ask for?  Bon appetit!
