New Food Items at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Some dining locations will receive their own unique items while other new offerings will be available at several eateries. The Harambe Market quick-service restaurant will debut three new rice bowls on October 11 — the Chicken and Shrimp Rice Bowl, the Chicken Rice Bowl, and the Shrimp Rice Bowl. The dishes themselves are the same, consisting of jollof rice, kachumbari tomato salad, and tzatziki sauce. The sole difference comes in the protein you choose — you can select chermoula-marinated chicken, peri peri-marinated shrimp, or both. A children’s version of the rice bowl will also be offered; it will contain shrimp, white rice, and a Cuties Mandarin Orange.

The Beef and Lamb Kofta Pita will also debut at Harambe Market on October 11. The dish features a blend of house-made beef and lamb kofta topped with tzatziki sauce and chermoula and served alongside house-made chips. A plant-based alternative containing IMPOSSIBLE kofta will also be offered; it will be served with a plant-based aïoli, chermoula, and house-made chips.

The Harambe Salad with Chicken will also be joining the restaurant’s menu; it contains chermoula-marinated chicken, quinoa, grilled corn, black-eyed peas, and crispy chickpeas topped with a chermoula-herbed vinaigrette. The chicken can be substituted with shrimp.

New breakfast and lunch items will be debuting at Kusafiri Coffee Shop & Bakery. The Egg and Bacon Croissant Sandwich with Tomato Pepper Relish breakfast option includes a cheese omelet served alongside a croissant, bacon, tomato-pepper relish, and potato barrels. Those potato barrels serve as the basis of the Breakfast Totchos with Eggs, Bacon, and Cheese dish, another breakfast item that features the potatoes topped with scrambled eggs, nacho cheese sauce, cheese curds, and crumbled bacon.

A plant-based option joins the lunch menu, as the IMPOSSIBLE Gatsby includes plant-based picadillo, tomato-pepper relish, and crispy potato sticks served atop a pita. It’s topped with a drizzle of plant-based aïoli. The Harissa Chicken Wrap rounds out the new items at Kusafiri Coffee Shop & Bakery; it contains harissa chicken salad, vegetables, and an avocado spread wrapped in a spinach tortilla. Both lunch options are served with house-made chips.
