First Look at Sanaa Menus, an offense to two major religions?

Scott Joseph of the Orlando Restaurant Guide has been provide the Lunch and Dinner menus to SANAA, the new African food with Indian Flavor Restaurant that has apparently soft opened at Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. As a critic he’s willing to give them the benefit of the doubt when it comes to the tastes and textures of the meals until he’s actually dined there, but he already has one interesting observation, there is pork and beef on the menu.

Most Indians are either Hindu or Muslim. Cows are, of course, sacred to Hindus. And to Muslims, pigs are considered to be unclean animals and should not be eaten. At least the Culinears at Disney chose to offend both dominant sects.

I’m not sure Disney restaurants should be held to those standards. I think it’s up to the patron on what to order or what restaurants to visit. On the other hand they do it just fine with Marrakesh Restaurant at EPCOT.
