One of the things I’ve loved about Morimoto Asia since it first opened is its willingness to work with some of its neighbors in Disney Springs to provide unique dining opportunities for guests. The latest event in this idea is “Wok & Wines” which combines the cuisine of Morimoto Asia’s talented chefs with the wine pairings from Master Sommelier George Miliotes, whose Wine Bar George will open later this year just around the corner.
The menu, created by Chef Yuhi Fujinaga, will showcase a selection of modern Pan-Asian dishes and Miliotes will personally pair each course with the best wines. I haven’t been disappointed yet by either Miliotes or Fujinaga, having them together will be a pleasure.
The dinner is priced at $150 (plus tax and gratuity, 21 years+ only please) and will feature the following:
Bluefin Toro Tartare, soy caviar, Jamon Iberico Crisps
Dom Ruinart Rose Champagne, France
‘Bag of Pho’ local lionfish, Hudson Valley Foie Gras dashi, mitsuba, rice noodles
Raats Original Chenin Blanc, Stellenbosch-South Africa
Slow Roasted Crispy Baby Pig, Chinese black bean trotter jus, hot spring Jidori egg
Selbach-Oster Riesling Feinherb, Mosel-Germany
Green Tea Panna Cotta
Broadbent Colheita Madeira, Portugal
