Dinner at Jiko Place at the Animal Kingdom lodge from my last trip….Head Chef at Napa Rose, Andrew Sutton had suggested that I try this place out as he really enjoyed the different flavors and unique menu items and he was right…Appetizer was a Grilled Wild Boar Tenderloin Mealie Pap, Chakalaka, White Truffle Oil, and Micro Cilantro, it was kind of like a ragout with a cheese which was really good and tender. Not gamey at all, very good and tons of flavor….Seared Barbarie Duck Breast Potato and Spinach Masala, Royal Trumpet Mushrooms, and Port Emuls ion. I really liked this dish as it had a ton of different flavors that were very new to my pallet and every bite was an experience on its own. I don’t usually take pictures of butter but this butter which looks like ice cream was amazing and was accompanied by fresh Nan bread…The butter was a tandoori butter with all sorts of flavors..The wine list at jiko was something else..They have the largest wine selection of wines from South African anywhere in the United States….not knowing my South African wines, I let them decide and they gave me a bottle of Chakalaka 2009 which was a mildly spiced red wine which was good but id probably not get it again….So if any of you are visiting WDW and like an adventurous 5 star dinner with some very unique menu items and flavors, I higly recommend checking out Jiko

You always find the most interesting food. - Westcoast  121.4 #2981 1:00PM
I try...I look at food as the same in life...and adventure, when you travel around the world and the country I dont want to have what is the norm everywhere but like n Rome, do as the Romans do...In this case We are pretty lucky at the Walt Disney World Resort to have so many authentic options so I love to try those food and dishes prepared for that culture - Dave   10848.3 #2 12:17AM
one night at one of the top places at the WDWR I asked what would you get to the chef...he said, which is a common theme of mine....Well, you can get a good steak anywhere......where can you get a good duck or boar dish? Exactly - Dave   10848.3 #2 12:19AM
