REVIEW: New “Adventurous Eats” Prix Fixe Menu at Yak & Yeti Restaurant is a Wildly Good Deal at Disney’s Animal Kingdom
Yak & Yeti Restaurant and Local Food Cafes reopened with the rest of Disney’s Animal Kingdom in mid-July. We revisited Yak & Yeti Restaurant for a lunch and after a full meal, we’re sharing our thoughts about each item with you! Keep reading for pictures of menu items and our reviews.
Yak & Yeti Restaurant “Adventurous Eats” Prix Fixe Menu
Yak & Yeti is currently offering a limited-time prix fixe menu for $35 per person. Guests can choose one appetizer, one entrée, and one dessert. There are also upgrade items available for an additional charge. But before we dug into our food, we ordered a drink.
Yak & Yeti Restaurant – Specialty Beverages
South Seas Traveler – $11.00
The South Seas Traveler was created by the Yak & Yeti Bartenders. It includes Myer’s Original Dark Rum and Captain Morgan Spiced Rum, Monin Lychee Syrup, and citrus juices.
This is a tiki drink that rivals anything at Trader Sam’s. It has strong citrus flavors, is very smooth, and we found that the bartenders were very generous with the rum pours.
The crust tastes like crumbled Oreo cookies. The chocolate interior was creamy, with a scoop of whipped cream on top.
Overall, it was fine.
Cream Cheese Wontons – $5.99 upgrade
We had to have the Cream Cheese Wontons upgrade. It continues to be one of the best, most creative desserts in all of Walt Disney World.
The crispy fried wontons filled with cream cheese are paired perfectly with custard sauce, pineapple, and vanilla ice cream, all in perfect contrast.
Each bite is heavenly. This is a reason to eat at Yak & Yeti.
While the “Adventurous Eats” Prix Fixe menu is a limited-time offering, it’s certainly a great value. Next time you’re at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, consider stopping by Yak & Yeti for a meal, as it’s a really good restaurant that deserves to be on more people’s radars. If you have a Landry’s card, you get priority seating as well!
