Have you ever wanted to sit down for a delicious African-inspired meal while gazing out on a savanna full of grazing zebra, but don't have the time or budget to fly off to Africa? Well, head over to the Sanaa restaurant in the Animal Kingdom Lodge! We had a delicious meal at the Sanaa while in town for the Monkey Kingdom Event and it was awesome!
Sanaa Restaurant at Animal Kingdom Lodge provides an upscale rustic atmosphere with authentic African-inspired cuisine, all within the convenience of Walt Disney World.
First up is a bread platter that includes three styles of pita bread and dipping options ranging from mild to spicy. You can try the hummus, a mango chutney sauce, or even the spicy chile sambal - which was a bit too spicy for my delicate palate.
Next up are three salads served family-style. My favorite was the watermelon salad with cucumber...it was so fresh and crisp - perfect after a long morning in the Florida sun as we explored Animal Kingdom!
If you suffer from food allergies or are following a special diet, Disney is the place to go - they are so conscious of allergies, I've really never been anywhere that was so considerate and accommodating!
I have a shellfish allergy, and one of the curries i our lunch was a seafood curry. As I can't eat shrimp, they gave me a few options for an alternative dish. I settled on the chicken curry and it was SO DELICIOUS!
The main course included a butter chicken and a curry chicken, with a yummy rice in between, and I think that I ate the entire thing!
You guys know that I have a killer sweet tooth, right? Well, as delicious as the meal was, dessert was my favorite part! Everything at Walt Disney World is done with flair and a bit of pixie dust, and our dessert trio sampler wasn't any different!
Edible butterflies are my favorite...
If you're heading to Walt Disney World, go check out Sanaa restaurant for yourself! While it is located inside Animal Kingdom Resort and Villas, you don't need to be a guest there to visit the restaurant!
Have you gone to see Disneynature's Monkey Kingdom yet? It's playing in theaters now and if you love monkeys...well then this will be your new favorite movie!
