Morimoto Asia Disney Springs Review...

Morimoto Asia Disney Springs Review

I was so excited as soon as this opened in Disney Springs! You can find Morimoto Asia right across from Homecomin' near the AMC Movie theatre side of Disney Springs. 

If you are looking for my lounge review on Morimoto Asia you can find that here:

We got to Morimoto Asia around 2pm on a Friday. They said the wait would be around 20 minutes & would text me on my cell phone when our table was ready. We grabbed a drink at the bar while we waited & did not wait over 20 minutes. It wasn't too crowded when we were there so I wonder how loud it gets in there at night in the restaurant?

It really is a beautiful restaurant. We were seated almost to the edge of the restaurant closest to the kitchen.

I've heard nothing but amazing things so I knew exactly what I wanted to try. I ordered the Kanikama Rangoon which is krab meat in a cream cheese spring roll with apricot sweet chili sauce. Crab   Rangoons are my FAVORITE thing at any Chinese takeout so I had to try these. Honestly this was just ehhhhhh for us & we wouldn't get again but the dipping sauce was very good.

We also ordered the Rock Shrimp Tempura appetizer. This knocks it out of the park! We were fighting over these & polished these off in no time! 


My main protein was the famous Spare Ribs which are flavored with cilantro & hoisin sweet chili glaze. I ordered the Appetizer portion. There are two options for these: 3 ribs or 6 ribs.  I can tell you there is MORE than enough meat on these ribs from the appetizer. I don't know how he does it but these ribs are mind blowing! They are crunchy yet sweet & spicy. The best ribs I've ever had in my entire life& my husband agreed! My mouth is watering just thinking about these & looking at this picture again. :) 

 My husband ordered the lunch special:

The salad that came with it was very good & quite refreshing. 

Lunch included: Salad, California Rolls, Kung Pao, & dumplings. I can say the dumpling was the best  I ever had. He was nice & let me have a bite :) He said everything was amazing.

We were too stuffed for dessert. Everything was amazing! I am sad we are not going here on our next trip but I hope to go back on the next one. We didn't have the duck but Morimoto is also known for that. I would say you cannot go wrong with the rock shrimp & ribs. The lunch specials are stellar too.  

Have you been & what is your opinion?

Please feel free to send me any questions that you may have. Thank you!

Adventures by Disney San Francisco from an Admitted Foodie- Christine Battista

If you think that your dinners on group travel don’t matter, then you have never been on an Adventures by Disney trip. Of course, this is coming from a person who plans their Disney World trips around where they can find their dinner reservations. 
The Adventures by Disney San Francisco Long Weekend Tour covers everything from walking over the Golden Gate Bridge to Napa Valley, but not surprisingly to those who know me, the food was the absolute highlight!

The best food on the whole trip was at My China in San Francisco. Now I have eaten a few places in my life, including the South of France, and this restaurant has to be in my top three.

Every Adventures by Disney meal starts with a specialized menu. The food came out family style and I tried everything on the list. It was absolutely amazing! The Honey Glazed Walnut Shrimp melted in my mouth.

Spicy Seafood Dumplings

The My China Chef came out mid-meal and gave us a private show that involved music and noodle making! That was just for the Adventures by Disney guests.

On our last night in San Francisco, we were treated to another great meal at One Market Restaurant.

The place was packed, so I was sure it was a great restaurant. Once again we started with a personalized menu.

This time, we got to choose from each section. I can tell you that I don’t normally like Cheesecake, but this cheesecake melted in my mouth.

We were served wine with this meal and were seated in a private room.
Adventures by Disney is the only way I would group travel. You never even handle your own bag the entire trip. As a matter of fact, I was on the same flight as another family on my Adventures by Disney Southern California trip and they still sent me my own private SUV to take me to the airport. But I digress…the food will NOT disappoint on any adventure.
I can’t wait to see what food I will get to try on my next adventure to Costa Rica. Hi Ho Vacations is taking a group next summer; June 30-July 6, 2018. I hope you will consider joining us…..I know that one thing that we will have is fresh pineapple picked straight from the farm that we visit.
Until the next adventure…..
