This eatery has something for everyone, as long as everyone enjoys food with an Asian-Polynesian flare. Adults can enjoy a cocktail (maybe something a little exotic with a fruit garnish and little pink umbrellas) while kids frolic in the nearby pool in between bites. The adjoining Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar serves exotic cocktails and Asian-inspired appetizers in an intimate and elaborately decorated environment reminiscent of Walt Disney World’s extinct Adventurers Club. Order an Uh Oa, Krakatoa Punch, or Shipwreck on the Rocks to see some explosive special effects. The best bet for late-night snacks are Sam’s panko-crusted long beans or sweet and spicy Asian wings. If the interior is at capacity (a frequent occurrence on weekends), try the patio, which has live music and a cozy fireplace.
Setting and Atmosphere
This is Disneyland Hotel’s poolside tropical retreat. Tiki torches and South Seas music are a dead giveaway that they want to evoke that island feeling.
Breakfast starts with French toast with bacon and banana-caramel sauce or grilled cinnamon-spiced oatmeal cakes. Lunch and dinner feature a one-third-pound Hawaiian cheeseburger with teriyaki sauce, bacon, and grilled pineapple on a multigrain bun, or try the Asian chicken salad with red and yellow bell peppers, cashews, and rice noodles in sesame vinaigrette.
Specials get a little more involved with sushi-grade ahi tuna poke and shrimp tacos. Caution: The sweet potato fries may be habit forming. Tangaroa Terrage also serves most of the same bar snacks as Trader Sam's next door, with the exception of the exquisite long beans.
