As the Lunar New Year celebration begins, Disneyland has created a delicious festive feast for everyone. The Lunar New Year comes alive with Disney magic.
For 24 days, Disneyland will be celebrating Lunar New Year with delicious bites and numerous activities. After making a wish at the Lucky Wishing Wall, guests can explore the four Asian themed marketplaces to sip and savor various Asian inspired dishes for the celebration.
The four marketplaces will feature dishes inspired by Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese cultures. For the ultimate food experience, the Sip and Savor pass offers a tasty journey through all the delectable dishes.
While the “Mulan’s Lunar New Year Procession” brings the blessing and friendship for the “New Year and the Hurry Home – Lunar New Year Celebration” adds a touch of good luck and fortune, the themes and symbols of the annual celebration is showcased throughout the Disney Park.
For foodies, the inspired food and beverages offer a journey through Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese culture. While the dishes feature both new and favorite bites, these options highlight the nuanced flavors that many Asian dishes offer.
Here are some of FoodSided’s suggestions.
Lucky 8 Lantern – smoked beef bulgogi short rib
The flavorful Korean dish, bulgogi, is always a tasty choice. This dish adds a nuanced smoked flavor to the beef bulgogi short rib. While the rice cake offers a balance, the green onions boosts the brightness to the rich beef. It is a totally satisfying dish.
Longevity Noodle Co.
With a variety of new noodle dishes, the marketplace will quickly become a must stop. While the noodles are the star, the desserts cannot be overlooked. Save room for the Black Sesame Mochi Donut, a superb addition to the menu.
Prosperity Bao & Buns
Bao is always a delectable bite, especially during the Lunar New Year celebration. While many people will opt for the robust Char Siu Pork Bao, Chinese BBQ Pork with Pickled Red Onions and Jalapeño, the Mickey Chinese Hot Dog Bun is a picture perfect dish. Can anyone resist a Mickey shaped food, especially during the year of the mouse?
Red Dragon Spice Traders
While dumplings are often a staple at a Lunar New Year celebration, foodies might opt for the Purple Yam Macaron with Crème Fraiche. Colorful foods are always a popular choice and this dish is definitely on trend. It shows that savory ingredients can often be sweet.
These suggestions are just a few of the many dishes at the Disneyland Lunar New Year celebration event. The celebration runs from February 17 through February 9.
