I expected us to be up early this morning so I had booked us an early breakfast at 7.30am at Boma. When we checked in there were only three other families in the restaurant. We started with two coffee’s and two glasses of jungle juice. We have had this juice before at Tusker House so were excited to be able to get it here. According to allears.net it is equal parts orange, guava and passion fruit juices. I would describe it as the most perfect fruit juice mix ever.
Breakfast at Boma is a buffet and the current menu items are listed online as –
- Fresh Fruit, African Pastries, Corned Beef Hash, Omelets, Pancakes, French Toast Bread Pudding, Pap and Chakalaka, Turkey Bobotie, Hand-carved Breakfast Ham, Hand-carved Turkey, Hand-carved Corned Beef
All the food here was excellent. I was gutted that I was too full to try the carved meats or the Bobotie, maybe next time. I would definably return here if we stay at Animal Kingdom Lodge again.
When we were getting ready to leave our server brought over this as I was wearing my birthday badge. It was really nice thing to get and our server boxed it up for me so I could eat it later. She also explained that Vier means celebration in general so the word can be used for birthdays, anniversaries and anything you want to say congratulations for. I ate it before bed and all I can say really was it was an average cupcake but it felt great eating it as it was free.
It was hot today at Magic Kingdom so we stopped for a Raspberry Lemonade Frozen Slush.
We had nothing else until dinner which tonight was at Sanaa at Kidani Lodge. This turned out to be a really amazing meal, probably one of our favourites on Disney property and will now be one of our must do’s.
For drinks Jamie had a bud light and I had a lemonade with wild berry foam.
We had planned on having the bread service but were not feeling hungry enough. We did see a few couples get it and it looked huge for a started.
For my main I had the Potjie Inspired which is two portions of different curries served with a choice of rice. My choices were butter chicken, spicy durban shrimp and five grain pilaf rice.
The curries were just perfect. The butter chicken was a mix of white and dark meat and was so moist and flavourful. The shrimp had a really good kick to it without being overpowering. I would find it really difficult to order anything else next time we visit as I loved my dinner.
Jamie’s experience was just as good as mine. At the time he declared at as the best meal of his life. He ordered something called Braaivleis. It is an African sampler plate which had a sausage, lamb chop and pork tenderloin. All the meat was melt in the mouth and beautifully seasoned. He even ate the cauliflower and he hates cauliflower.
I really cant find the words to say how good this meal was – if you are planning a WDW trip please visit this restaurant. We also had a really great server, Steve who was the right amount of friendly and attentive without being at your table every two mins.
Before heading back to the room I wanted to pick up a hugely recommended snack at the lodge -the Zebra Domes.
When I took my first bite I was so confused. I have seen these online so many times but never realised they were soft shelled. I expected the shell to be a hard chocolate shell with a creamy liqueur filling. Even thought they were not how I expected them to taste I liked them. Dont really feel they deserve the hype they get though and probably wouldn’t them again.
They were the last food of day 2 so check back tomorrow to see what we ate on our first trip to Epcot Food & Wine Festival
