Summary

One of the staples of the massively-revitalized Disney Springs, Morimoto Asia by Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto has settled into its own as one of Walt Disney World’s top destination restaurants. The imposing façade of the massive eatery glows (literally) at night, with an outdoor terrace with one of the best views of the neighboring “springs”. The side of the building features an assuming “Forbidden Lounge” entrance, which leads straight to the restaurant’s beautifully-appointed upstairs bar area, serving a late-night menu until 2 a.m. The outdoor patio downstairs seats guests dining at the restaurant’s walk-up window, which features quick versions of dishes from the full menu.

Setting and Atmosphere

Upscale modern club meets Japanese tradition, past and present, at Morimoto Asia, mixing wood accents and a centerpiece steel bead-chandelier on a gunmetal gray backdrop, sure to feature in your next Instagram photo. The continuous white stone ribbon running through both the upstairs and downstairs bars draws the eye away into peace from the hopping atmosphere contained elsewhere in the restaurant – it’s always bustling, with the buzz you’d expect from a big city dining room. Oversized black and white photos trim the back wall of the restaurant, but the true attraction is the glass-walled open kitchen, in view of nearly all diners in the downstairs level.

House Specialties

The menu melds flavors from all across Asia in a sometimes-fusion, sometimes traditional manner – standard dim sum and sushi offerings (with highest quality ingredients) are a draw for many, while noodle dishes like house-made ramen bridge tradition with modern cuisine. A5 Wagyu served by the ounce tops out the menu’s price range, while mid-range delicacies like the 24-hour marinated Peking duck, Morimoto’s signature buri-bop bowl, and seafood entrees easily please palates without breaking the bank. Smaller bites that satisfy include spare ribs, portabella mushroom fries, and kung pao cauliflower.

Other Recommendations

Orange chicken made with local Florida oranges; poke salad with tuna, salmon, and Hamachi; kung pao chicken dumplings; and Gomoku fried rice, featuring a veritable menagerie of duck, chicken, pork, shrimp, and vegetables with a spicy house sambal chili sauce.
