Tiffins opened at Disney’s Animal Kingdom a little over a year ago as the park’s first upscale restaurant. Presenting a menu well versed in signature offerings, adventurous guests of all ages are in for a real culinary quest when dining here. Discover an abundance of international exotic menu features, such as grilled octopus, pomegranate-lacquered chicken, and several other land and sea selections that infuse the flavors from African, Asian, and Latin cuisine. Uncover hidden treasures in the way of a delicious dessert, like lime cheesecake, South American chocolate ganache, passion fruit tapioca crème, Calamansi Mousse, or refreshing sorbet. You will also delight in plenty of delicious drink pairings to go with each meal. Or you can head next door to the Nomad Lounge and enjoy appealing appetizers, specialty cocktails, wine, beer, and several non-alcoholic signatures.
In case you were wondering, the restaurant’s name “tiffin” is an English-Indian word that most often refers to a lighter morning or midday meal but can also be defined as a packed lunch container, like the ones carried by explorers and adventure seekers. When you look closely at the restaurant sign you will even see a couple of perched tiffin containers incorporated into the architectural design. In fact, the overall setup of the restaurant in décor and architecture is all about celebrating natural artistic beauty and craftsmanship.
