The long-awaited Harambe Marketplace opened in Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park over the weekend:
Harambe Marketplace is located on the path from Asia to Africa, just off to the right side of Tamu Tamu Refrshments
The level of detail in the area is what you would expect at Animal Kingdom: stunning
Plenty of shaded seating with loads of props and details
The Lion King meets Corn Dog Castle
Several food service windows make up the location with one shared seating area
The Wildlife Express train passes every-so-often, a nice touch
The Ground Beef Kabob Flatbread (which was the the table favorite) is refreshing and filling. Nice and lean.
The Spice-rubbed Karubi Ribs have great flavor; super tender and spiced just right. The portions are also very nice.
The curry corn sausage was good but it was the least favorite of the table. Lacked spices compared to other dishes.
For dessert, the African Milk Tart is pretty good with an interesting coconut aftertaste
The watermelon lemonade is super refreshing. A must have on a hot summer day!
Expect a review of the full menu in later posts and podcasts, but for now, it is clear this is a welcome addition to the park and a much needed additional dining option with the expansion in full swing!
