REVIEW: Delicious Pork Tamale and Iced Horchata at Cocina Cucamonga for Disney California Adventure Festival of Holidays 2019

Santa came early this year, in the form of delicious food. That’s right, the 2019 Festival of Holidays has taken over Disney California Adventure, and we’ve spent our day eating through the festival. We’ve now made our way over to Cocina Cucamonga, a participating restaurant for this year’s festival. This year, they are offering a Horchata and a Pork Tamale, so let’s dig in.

The pork tamales were just your standard tamales. They were good, but not life-changing. A few bites were spicy, so beware! The side of rice and beans were a nice accompaniment. We found the shredded pork to be tender and the masa also had a good consistency. We would certainly get this again!

Horchata Agua Fresca – $5.00

We found this Horchata to be good, but not nearly as good as the kind you can get from the Merry Mashup Marketplace Booth. However, it had a good cinnamon finish and complimented the tamales very well.

While we found this food to be good, we can’t help but recommend the food from the Marketplace booths over this. Do you agree? Leave us a comment below.
