Favorites on Friday: Vegetarian Fare at Bradley Falls, Disney's Animal Kingdom

Almost all of my visits to Walt Disney World have been as a vegetarian. WDW is a great place to be a veg, with options at practically every restaurant and eatery throughout the parks and resorts. Some places, however, have more to offer than others. I always felt Animal Kingdom was lacking in the kind of food I wanted to eat. Sure, there are a few offerings to be found here and there, but most places never seemed to have the kind of thing I was looking for. There was one notable exception, though: the eggroll stand, now known as Bradley Falls kiosk.

Found on the walkway between Asia and Africa, this little stand featured my favorite veggie eggroll snack (or meal, if I doubled my order).

Farewell old friend...

When I heard they were changing their menu last year, I was worried. Would they still have my favorite veggie treat? It turns, the answer to that was no. However, I was thrilled to discover that while my veggie eggroll was gone, in its place was a whole new menu, completely vegetarian!

The Summer Rolls are tasty and light, filled with fresh veggies, rice noodles, and accompanied by a peanut dipping sauce. The sauce is a bit different than your typical peanut sauce- a little thicker, and with a flavor I couldn't quite put my finger on. Actually, my favorite use for the sauce was mixing it into the Asian Noodle Salad (a salad so delicious, it was 3/4 gone before I remembered I hadn't yet snapped a photo).

I did not sample the edamame, but I've heard good reviews. We rounded out the meal with a fruit salad- fresh, ripe, and not a soft grape or squishy blueberry to be found! Expensive for a fruit salad? Sure. But it was 50 cents cheaper than the weak one I saw at the airport a few days later, and the airport one was definitely not served in a pineapple...

Where to relax with your food? There happens to be a perfect seating area close by. It's nestled in across the path, next to the river, with an amazing view of the Tree of Life.

Look for this trash can  in the seating area.

  1. Yummy!! I'm not a vegetarian, but I still love lots of vegetarian dishes! I'm definitely going to check out that edamame next time I am in Animal Kingdom!

  2. These look delicious! My new son-in-law keeps kosher so when he traveled with us to WDW for the first time we were all a little concerned about his ability to find acceptable food choices. We researched it and found some places that offered kosher selection. They were ok but nothing like this! He will routinely go the vegetarian route to meet his dietary needs so it is fabulous to know about this option in Animal Kingdom. Poor guy, he was ill prepared for how insane we, as a family, are at and about WDW. It was quite the eye opening experience for him but now he's totally on board with us!

  3. I LOVE this kiosk. Your review is right on target. The food is GREAT, it never seems to be crowded, I love the "secret" seating area across the path. Believe it or not, this is my favorite food at AK. Great post!
