Welcome back to our rainy day stop by Disney Springs. We’re back at Morimoto Asia Street Food which — as luck would have it — offers covered outdoor seating so we can still check out some of Chef Morimoto’s Pan-Asian cuisine, even as the drizzle still comes down!
This isn’t our only recent stop at the counter service location for Morimoto Asia. We were just here last week to check out the new safety procedures that the eatery has implemented as Disney Springs has started its phased reopening — and you can read all about the new processes here. Today, though, we’re back to grab a few more bites to eat, and we’d love it if you joined us!
Though today’s visit was drizzly, we have a picture of the menu from our sunnier visit last week for easier reading.
The assortment of canned beverages includes craft beers like 3 Daughters Brewing Rod Bender Red Ale and Crooked Stave. You’ll also find One Cup Sake among the offerings.
A Cauliflower and Cheese Spring Roll was one of the specialty bites today, but we went with the Pork Egg Roll to go along with our BBQ Beef Tenderloin Rice Bowl.
(Do you see a Hidden Mickey, too, or is that just me?)
We’ll start with the Pork Egg Roll.
Pork, cabbage, egg, and carrot are tucked into the fried-to-golden roll.
And we’re happy to report that this crisp egg roll is filled mostly with the pork and egg, making it heartier than your typical egg roll that usually has an emphasis on the veggies with just a little pork.
If there is a downside at all, it wasn’t “stuffed” as much as we would’ve liked. But overall it is truly tasty.
The BBQ Beef Tenderloin Rice Bowl is served up with house-pickled kimchi and garnished with scallions and sesame.
The bowl is generously packed with the beef and toppings!
So much so, in fact, that it could’ve used a little more rice for balance.
The kimchi is a standout in the already flavorful dish, bringing a nice little kick to it!
It is worth noting that this is a $20 dish, so it’s on the pricey side. But it’s certainly higher quality than “to go” fare you’ll find elsewhere.
And both dishes today serve as a great reminder that Morimoto Asia Street Food offers up a terrific way to get a really great taste of the signature Pan-Asian cuisine served at Morimoto Asia even while you’re outside and on-the-go strolling around Disney Springs!
