Morimoto Asia street food stalls are about to open at Disney Springs.

Disney Springs shoppers seeking snacks will have savory new options starting Sunday, May 15, with the opening of the new Morimoto Asia street food stand.

Construction walls are already coming down around Morimoto’s new outdoor expansion, which will offer a menu of take-away dishes different from those served inside. The new al fresco extension of Morimoto’s multi-level restaurant at Disney Springs (formerly the Mannequins dance club) makes it possible for on-the-go guests to choose from a cross-section of menu items reflecting the range of flavors from across the Asian continent.
Menu items are broken down into sections and include the following:

• “Snacks” including takoyaki (octopus, nori, okonomiyaki sauce), Morimoto sticky ribs, curry rice croquette, taiyaki (snapper shaped sweet pancake filled with sweet adzuki red bean paste) and pork egg roll (pork, cabbage).
• “Bao Tacos” including kalbi (kimchi, scallions), chicken teriyaki (spicy mayo, cucumber, lettuce, teriyaki) and pork (spicy mayo, cucumber, lettuce)
• “Donburi” (rice bowls) in a variety of styles including Japanese beef curry, char-siu don (braised pork belly, scallions, pickled ginger) and chicken teriyaki don (braised chicken, carrots, broccoli).
• “Sushi (rito) and Onigiri” including California roll (guacamole), shrimp tempura roll (lettuce, cucumber), orange chicken roll (lettuce, sesame, orange glaze), vegetable roll (cucumber, lettuce, carrots, guacamole), sake onigiri (grilled flaked salmon, Morimoto premium white rice) and edamame & shiso onigiri (Morimoto premium white rice).

“Street food holds memories of my childhood. It reminds me of the local festivals and events of my hometown,” said Chef Morimoto. “I am excited that our new street food will transport guests to Asia and the marvelous cuisines that inspired my menu creations.”
Located in the heart of Disney Springs in a neighborhood called The Landing, Morimoto Asia is collaboration of the chef with Patina Restaurant Group. Enjoy this episode of Attractions The Show from last October, highlighting the grand opening of Morimoto Asia:
