With Tiana's Palace set to open next month at Disneyland park, Disney has finally unveiled the menu of what is sure to be the next hot spot. Nestled on Orleans Street, this new quick-service restaurant will provide visitors with a taste of New Orleans cuisine and feature favorites such as gumbo, beignets and more.
Now anyone who has seen Princess and the Frog, knows that Tiana is a world-class chef, so what's she cooking up for this new restaurant?
The gumbo will undoubtedly be a guest favorite. The 7 Greens Gumbo features white beans, okra, yams, sweet potatoes and heirloom rice, with the option to add Chicken & Andouille Sausage.
There's also House Gumbo -- a New Orleans staple -- that combines braised chicken, andouille sausage and heirloom rice.
Here's a quick look at some of the other main dishes on the menu:
- Cajun Spice Half Chicken: For those looking for some spice, this chicken is brushed with house-made chicory BBQ sauce and served with baked macaroni and cheese & coleslaw.
- Muffuletta Sandwich: Toasted New Orleans sesame seed bread with mortadella, salami, rosemary ham, cheddar, provolone and house-made olive relish (served with red beans and house-made pickles)
- Beef Po-boy Sandwich: Toasted New Orleans French bread with slow-cooked beef and gravy, shredded lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise (served with red beans and house-made pickles)
- Gulf Shrimp and Grits: Shrimp tossed in Creole sauce and paired with cheesy grits
While the main dishes all sound delicious, I'm more of a coffee and sweets guy. And Tiana's Palace has two amazing treats.
The House-filled Beignet features a lemon icebox pie filling with lemon glaze. The only Disney beignets I've had were from Scat Cat's Club Cafe at Port Orleans – French Quarter in Disney World. And they are legit. I can only imagine ones cooked up by Tiana herself would top that.
And to pair with it is Joffrey's Coffee Chicory Cold Brew. What makes this isn't necessarily the coffee or sweet cream, but the presentation. It's got an adorable Ray Firefly Glow Cube, which I think is so cute.
All of the food, which can be seen on the Disney Parks Blog, looks amazing. I've never actually been to New Orleans so I can't vouch for how authentic it actually is, but it certainly looks delicious. If the food tastes half as good as it looks in these photos, then I think Tiana's Palace could become one of the best restaurants in Disneyland park.
Prices weren't revealed alongside the menu but as a quick-service restaurant I imagine they will be fairly reasonable -- at least by Disney standards. Head on over to the Disney Parks Blog for a first look at the delicious menu of Tiana's Palace, which opens on September 7.
