Heads up, Pacific Island lovers! Tangaroa Terrace Tropical Bar & Grill has reopened at the Disneyland Hotel— adjacent to the always-popular Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar– and it’s got a newly redesigned outdoor patio, complete with “bamboo accents, exotic stone countertops and glass fish net float lights, [and] open air views of the pool.”
Described by Disneyland Resort as a “fast-casual” restaurant with “brightly colored rattan lounge chairs, tiki bar stools and a communal table,” this spot also offers Trader Sam’s signature tiki cocktails, made-to-order dishes, and Disneyland’s famously delectable Dole Whip pineapple-flavored frozen treat.
Watch Tangaroa Terrace new outdoor bar and mugs at Disneyland Resort:
“Tangaroa Terrace, inspired by Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room, is the perfect tropical complement to the mid-century modern architecture of the Disneyland Hotel. This island paradise combines traditional motifs from many Pacific islands such as Hawaii, Tahiti, Fiji, Sumatra and New Guinea.”
Tangaroa Terrace serves breakfast (featuring a classic Breakfast Platter with scrambled eggs, bacon, and hash browns and a Breakfast Sandwich with kālua-style pulled pork, fried egg, hash browns, and gravy) until 11:00 AM, when it switches over to a lunch and dinner menu (with highlights like the Kālua-style Poutine, Pu Pu Platter, and Shipwreck Nachos.)
“Other dishes include a Lentil Garden Bowl with brown rice, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, and onions tossed in coconut curry; the Tangaroa Salad with sautéed shrimp; and an Angus 1/3 lb. Hawaiian Cheeseburger served with grilled pineapple, Applewood-smoked bacon, Havarti cheese, togarashi aïoli, and teriyaki sauce.”
New drinks include the Sea Monster’s Embrace with a very cool collectible kraken-style bowl and the colorful Tangaroa Cooler, which mixes gin with tropical fruit juices. And don’t forget to pick up the new styles of mugs for the Shrunken Zombie Head and Krakatoa Punch.
Also available inside the Tangaroa Terrace marketplace are grab-and-go pastries, snacks, specialty coffees, and of course a variety of Dole Whip offerings like soft-serve and floats. And as a special bonus, quick and easy mobile ordering is also available for guests who use the Disneyland Resort app.
Tangaroa Terrace Tropical Bar & Grill is now open at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California. For more information or to view the full menu, be sure to visit Disneyland’s official website.
