Officially opening May 27th is Animal Kingdom's Pandora, a land themed after the blockbuster Avatar. Pandora has been an ongoing project for what seems like forever, but it is finally here!!! During a preview last week, we were able to try the quick-service restaurant in Pandora, Satu'li Canteen and let me just cut to the chase and let you know its amazing!
The restaurant is quick-service which means you line up behind a cashier and place your order, then carry your food to the table.
The focus of the menu is Satu'li Bowls which you are able to customize to your preference. You choose from one of several "bases" such as salad, kale, or quinoa, followed by a choice of protein, roast beef, chicken, fish or fried tofu, and then top with a sauce. While we did not try the Satu'li Bowls, we have heard from extensive reviewers that they are delicious, but recommended against the kale base and the tofu protein.
The other entree item on the menu is the Steamed Pods which are steamed buns filled with either vegetable curry or cheeseburger. We went with the cheeseburger and really liked them! The bun helped settle our stomachs after riding Flight of Passage and yet, they were not too heavy to make you feel weighed down the rest of the day. The pods were served with a fresh slaw and kettle chips. I highly recommend the pods!
