One of my favorite new places to eat at Disney Springs is Morimoto Asia, the Asian Fusion restaurant founded by Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto. A great place for lunch, dinner, or sushi, it’s also a fun atmosphere to celebrate any special events or holidays. So it’s no surprise that a pair of fantastic menus are planned for Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day.
On February 8, ring in “The Year of the Monkey” and celebrate Chinese New Year with a four course, family-style dinner of Pan-Asian specialties including Chef Morimoto’s signature Peking Duck for $75 a person.
From Feb. 12 – 14, celebrate Valentine’s Day with a romantic dinner for two with a four course, prix-fixe menu starring Chef Morimoto’s signature Peking Duck for two. Other courses include Duck Caesar Salad, Hamachi and Duck consommé and for dessert, the Morimoto parfait, a meal-ending showstopper built for two (or more) piled high with vanilla gelato, chocolate creampuff, sesame mochi, hazelnut crunchies and whipped cream ($85 a person). For an even more exclusive and intimate culinary experience on Feb. 14 only, it’s chef’s choice with a five-course Omakase dinner at the intimate second-level 14-seat sushi bar ($150 a person).
I tried the Peking Duck on my first visit to Morimoto Asia and was very impressed. In addition to the traditional plum sauce, Morimoto Asia also serves a bowl of their amazing hoisin sauce. The Morimoto Parfait dessert is a must-have as well. Even if you don’t plan to take advantage of either of these special menus, it’s worth a visit to try both of these items.
