REVIEW: Cluck-a-Doodle-Moo Brings Spicy Chicken Wings, Savory Beef Brisket and More to the 2023 Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival

Probably our favorite marketplace available during the 2023 Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival is Cluck-a-Doodle-Moo. With such an inventive and silly name, along with the yummy food served, this is one marketplace you can’t miss while visiting the festival.

*NEW* Smoked Honey-Habanero Chicken Wings – $8.50

Chicken Wings tossed in Honey-Habanero Seasoning

The wings are fantastic. It has a dry rub, to keep your face and hands a bit cleaner, and a spicy kick that hits all the right notes. We would get these again without hesitation.

*NEW* BBQ Beef Brisket Slider – 9.00

This is nothing special. It has a decent amount of meat, but it’s not especially flavorful brisket. We have the feeling that neither the brisket nor the wings are actually smoked at all. They certainly don’t taste like they are.

Truthfully, the best part of the slider is the bun, which is sprinkled with cracked pepper. It’s very good, but it doesn’t make up for the mediocre filling.

*NEW* Chipotle-Pineapple Bourbon Sour – $17.00

Bourbon, Pineapple and Lime Juices, Honey Syrup and Chipotle Sour PurĂ©e, garnished with a Dried Red Pineapple Wheel

In this drink, tropical flavors of pineapple meet warm and cozy bourbon notes with a sour finish.  Bourbon drinkers who dream of a tropical getaway will like this drinkable, balanced cocktail.

*NEW* Smoked Cherry Mezcal-iki Cocktail – $16.00

Dark Rum, Mezcal, Cherry Purée, Grapefruit & Lime Juices, Vanilla Syrup and Bitters, garnished with a Dried Grapefruit Chip

We’re not usually mezcal fans, and this doesn’t make us want to change our minds. Still, as a drink, it’s fairly good, and not too sweet. The cherry isn’t overpowering, but it doesn’t tasted smoked either.

The 2023 Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival will be running from March 3 to April 25, 2023.
