WDW Resturant Review- Bongos Cuban Cafe (Downtown Disney)
(Pechuga de Pollo a la Plancha - grilled chicken breast marinated in garlic and lemon topped with grilled onions served with white rice and sweet plantains).
For our last day at WDW, we went to Downtown Disney and ate lunch at Bongos. We've eat at this Gloria Estefan owned, Cuban themed restaurant before and really enjoyed it. After almost a week of mostly burgers and fries it was nice to eat some authentic Cuban cuisine. In fact, my son actually said it was his favorite meal of the entire trip. Ha! simple grilled chicken with onions, rice and plantains was preferred over Kraft style mac n' cheese...I'm so proud :)
The restaurant is themed to evoke old world Havana in the 1940's and 50"s and I believe they play live Cuban music during dinner---I love dinner and a show! The restaurant also features a walk-up window and outdoor tables, which is great if you want a more casual lunch. Just order yourself a Cuban sandwich, sit back, soak up the Florida sun and enjoy....you're on vacation!!!
We also ordered Ropa Vieja , aka "Old Clothes". It's shredded beef in a light tomato sauce with onions and peppers...a classic Cuban dish.
