Menu Changes Coming to Jiko – The Cooking Place at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge
Jiko – The Cooking Place is reopening on February 17, and it looks like new items — and some old favorites — will be on the menu. Walt Disney World updated the restaurant’s menu this evening after the reopening was announced.

The Sustainable Vulcan-spiced Fish is now the Sustainable Fish but is otherwise unchanged. The Botswana-style Beef Short Rib is now called the Botswanan Seswaa Short Rib.
4 oz. Lobster Tail
Mozambique Peri Peri Prawns
Bobotie Mac & Cheese — this has been on the menu before, but the ingredients are different
The Zulu Oxtail Samp & Beans is a returning dish, which was formerly called Tarith’s Samp and Beans. The dish will be slightly altered, with sea peas replacing the speckled beans.
Kilimanjaro (pictured above) — The chocolate mousse dessert isn’t new, but it is returning to the menu after an absence.
Disney has not officially announced the menu change, though it shows up on My Disney Experience. More changes may be made before the restaurant reopens.
