Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto to Host 3 Events at Morimoto Asia Disney Springs in December 2023

Morimoto Asia

Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto will return to his restaurant Morimoto Asia at Disney Springs in December to host three special events.

I’ve had the pleasure of meeting the Chef before and if you love Asian food and drink, these are events you won’t want to miss. You also don’t want to wait on getting reservations/tickets – the last time Chef Morimoto was in town, his restaurant events sold out.

Suntory 100th Anniversary Tasting

On Friday, Dec. 1 and Saturday, Dec. 2, join Chef Morimoto for a celebration of 100 years of House of Suntory fine whiskys with the Suntory 100th Anniversary Tasting.

Each evening from 5-6:30pm, only twenty guests will sample exceptional whiskys alongside delicious small bites, and the whisky selections will be different each night.

Tickets are $355 (+ tax/gratuity) per person, and all attendees must be 21 and older. Visit Morimoto Asia’s ticket page for more details, or to purchase.


Later in the evening on Dec. 1 and 2, Chef Morimoto will host his highly exclusive “Momokase.”

Beginning at 7pm, 10 lucky guests each evening will enjoy an intimate seven-course meal personally prepared by the Iron Chef himself, paired with rare bottles from House of Suntory’s signature whisky collection.

Pours include Yamazaki 25yr, Yamazaki 18yr Mizunara 100th anniversary, Hakushu 18yr peat malt 100th anniversary, and Hibiki 17yr — one of the last ever produced. Upgrade to an optional ¼-ounce pour from one of only 200 bottles of Yamazaki 55yr in the world.

This unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity starts at $2,000 per person (+ tax/gratuity). Must be 21 or older to attend, and you can inquire about reservations online.

12 Beers of Christmas

Finally, if you prefer beer to whisky, on Sunday, Dec. 3, get into the holiday spirit with 12 Beers of Christmas hosted by Chef Morimoto.

Sample 12 amazing beers paired with 12 delicious bites. Nonalcoholic beverage options for kids make this a family-friendly Morimoto Asia event.

Choose from two different time slots and either general admission, or a booth with bottled water and a dedicated server (only eight available for this event).

Tickets start at $95 for adults (+ tax/gratuity) and $55 for children (+ tax/gratuity). A private booth for four is $500 (+ tax/gratuity). Tickets may be purchased online.
