I recently posted a general Japan Food Guide for 2015 that was based on my last trip to Japan. That trip, I also went to Tokyo DisneySea and decided to make a separate food guide for what I ate there.
It was actually my first time at Tokyo DisneySea (insane, I know). I had a fantastic time and looked at several blogs and asked several people and the consensus was to eat at the carts instead of the food courts/restaurants, so that is what FK and I focused on during this trip.
Our first stop was at Seaside Snacks in the Port Discovery area. They had this Donald ukiwa-man which is a steamed bun with shrimp inside in the shape of a life preserver. The flavor and texture was great and I loved the packaging and how it was engaged with the actual food item.
Our next stop was one of the ice cream carts (they have them scattered all over the park). We got the tiramisu ice cream sandwich. Unfortunately, we had to scarf it down because the line was moving way faster for a ride than we anticipated but it was really good. It had 2 tiramisu cookies sandwiching vanilla ice cream. The whole thing was actually pretty big and this was FK’s favorite thing we had at DisneySea.
We then headed to The Lost River Delta area and stopped at Expedition Eats for this Yucatan Sausage. This was easily our least favorite thing we had. It’s literally a big sausage (that is pretty flavorless – no sauces or anything) in a really hard baguette.
Also in The Lost River Delta we saw everyone walking around with what looked like super mini turkey legs. They turned out to be chicken legs and they were easily the best thing we had. These can be found at the Lost River Cookhouse and are called Spicy Smoked Chicken Leg. The flavor was incredible and it was insanely juicy. It was small (compared to our obnoxiously large turkey legs in the US) but so worth it.
We then ventured to the Arabian Coast and went to Sultan’s Oasis to try several things. One was the Chandu Tail. Again, genius packaging. This was another steamed bun in the shape of a tiger’s tail and was full of chicken cream (it’s sort of like what is in chicken pot pie).
Also at the Sultan’s Oasis, I got their Maple Cream Balls. They are like little maple pancake bites with cream inside and chocolate drizzle and topped with nuts. These were really delicious and fluffy. I wish there was more cream inside of them, though! You can also get the balls with soft serve on top (why I didn’t do that, I have no idea).
The last stop was at the Refreshment Station at the Mysterious Island area where we got the super hyped Gyoza Dog. This is a steamed bun shaped like a gigantic gyoza (pot sticker) that had typical pork gyoza filling. I was a little steamed bunned out at this point so I thought it definitely did not live up to the hype. It was good, though.
All in all, I really enjoyed the food and absolutely loved the park. Tokyo DisneySea is also very well known for their popcorn flavors that they have at carts all over the park (milk tea, curry, cappuccino, etc.), but neither FK nor I are popcorn fans so it wasn’t really worth it for us. They do have the cutest popcorn holders though and I was tempted to get popcorn just for that. I’m excited to go back next time to try the food courts and maybe eventually the restaurants.
