When Downtown Disney officially transformed into Disney Springs in September of 2015, visitors to Orlando began to experience some of the awesome changes to the attraction. Disney Springs is a very popular destination for dining, shopping and entertainment within Walt Disney World. While renovations to Disney Springs still remain underway, there are already so many new shopping and dining locations for guests to enjoy.
Our staff recently dined at Morimoto Asia and we absolutely loved it! Morimoto Asia is a great option if you are looking for a date night spot, family dinner, or celebrating a special occasion. But in addition to their dining room, Morimoto also features a walk up counter and seating area for more casual fare, Morimoto Asia Street Food.
If you have an experienced flavor palate for Asian food, Morimoto Asia will not disappoint, but the menu has so many delicious options that it also appeals to those who may be trying sushi or other Asian cuisine for the very first time. There is something for everyone! We were lucky enough to dine at Morimoto Asia during Magical Dining Month, sampling many different items from the menu. Our taste buds were pleased!
Interested in what’s worth ordering on the menu? We’ve got you covered with some suggestions. For appetizers, we went with the Dim Sum and the Kakuni Pork Bao. Both of these were wonderful! If you like dumplings, you’ll love their Dim Sum selection here, and the Pork Bao was to die for. Crispy pork belly inside of a fluffy steamed bun, what’s not to love? For entrees, we ordered a Chicken Lo Mein, Orange Chicken and L.A. BBQ Kalbi, Our favorite was the Kalbi. These boneless short ribs were cooked perfectly and very tender, in a tasty, spicy sauce!
The best part of Morimoto Asia is their fun desserts! We ordered the Sesame Balls, Churros, and Morimoto Asia’s signature dessert, the MM Soda Float. The MM Soda Float is a must try! Poured tableside, you’re treated to a delicious ice cream float with boba pearls at the bottom! Definitely recommend this dessert.
Morimoto Asia is a wonderful addition to Disney Springs. We love that the Orlando area continues to grow, and more attractions pop up everyday for our guests to enjoy! At just about 15 minutes from the Vista Cay Resort, Disney Springs is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon shopping and exploring, or simply an evening enjoying a meal at Morimoto Asia!
