Morimoto Asia - Disney Springs

During out trip to Disney World in July, my daughters and I had dinner at Morimoto Asia, a table service restaurant in Disney Springs.

Morimoto Asia is not Disney-owned and operated, so they do not have an allergy-friendly menu. Gluten free options are noted on their regular menu with a small red symbol.

The menu states that items marked with this symbol can be prepared without gluten upon request, and that you should speak with a manager. 

You can view Morimoto's gluten free menu options on the Patina Group's website here

We had eaten a lot of food earlier in the day, so I decided to order two dishes from the small plates menu.

The edamame with sea salt was very good, and disappeared quickly, because I shared with my daughters.

I also enjoyed my chicken wings with spicy garlic soy glaze, though they were not as amazing as the five spice chicken wings Morimoto Asia used to have on their menu. They were slightly sweet, and not overly spicy. I would definitely order them again on future visits.

The last time we had dinner at Morimoto Asia, I ordered Morimoto chicken fried rice. I never wrote a review, because we were in the process of moving to California. I know I asked for a sweet sauce on the side, but I don't remember what they gave me. I considered ordering this dish again in July, because I enjoyed it two years ago, but I could not eat that much food. My gluten-eating daughters were not willing to share with me, because they were splitting chicken bao and an order of orange chicken, which they loved.

Gluten free options are not noted on Morimoto Asia's dessert menu, but our server checked to see what desserts were gluten free when I asked.

I ended up choosing the sorbetto trio with one scoop of watermelon, and two scoops of yuzu. Strawberry was their third option, but we decided to get an extra scoop of yuzu instead. I am not much of a sorbet fan, because I usually find it to be too sweet, but I was impressed with both flavors. The watermelon was my favorite, but my daughters preferred the yuzu, which has a citrus flavor.

I considered getting the mochi mochi, which I have ordered on past visits. This time around, I was told it was safe without the lemon-yogurt powder. The last time we dined at Morimoto, it was served without fruit boba. It just depends on Morimoto Asia's vendors at the time of your visit. The mochi mochi is one of the best desserts I have ever had at Disney World. You can read more about it in my previous review of Morimoto Asia here.

Overall, we enjoyed our meal at Morimoto Asia, and look forward to dining there again on future trips to Disney World.
