The Tusker House

Today marks my first blog post about a restaurant at Walt Disney World.  And to start it off, I picked my favorite buffet, the Tusker House, from Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  My family and I have been to a number of buffets at the Walt Disney World parks and resorts, but this one is probably my favorite.

The Tusker House, located in Harambe Village, on the left side as you walk in from Discovery Island, just past the Dawa Bar on your way to the new Festival of the Lion King location.  The entrance is actually in the back, which can be a bit hard to find if you’ve never been before.  It is open for breakfast (8:00am-10:55am), lunch (11:00am-3:30pm) and dinner (4:30pm-7:00pm), and is not only a buffet, but also includes character dining, with Mickey, Donald, Daisy, and Goofy.  tusker-house-restaurant-gallery04

The interior of Tusker House is made to look like you are in an open area marketplace, with high ceilings, colorful banners, a general African feel to the building, both inside and out.  I have only eaten there for lunches, so I have not personally tried some of the dinner foods, but I love the offering at lunch.

Appetizers include tabbouleh, hummus and baba ganoush, Tunisian couscous salad, curried rice salad, and ‘normal’ foods, like apple walnut salad, mixed greens, cucumber salad, lunch meats cheeses and fresh fruit.  There is a vegetarian table that, even though I love meat, has some delicious foods: several varieties of couscous, samosas, tandoori and jollaf rice.  For the main dishes: seafood stew, orzo pasta, varved sirloin and pork loin, Cape Malay curry chicken, basmati rice with almonds in it, salmon filet, and root veggies, potato wedges, and mashed potatoes.  As for desserts, they have banana cinnamon bread pudding with vanilla sauce, fruit cobblers, and traditional assorted pastries and cookies.  The price is about $30 dollars a person, and for me (a 6’10” guy with a big appetite) it’s great! My wife doesn’t eat as much as I do, but she loves the atmosphere, the corn dog nuggets from the kids menu, and thinks the characters are fun.

Have you been to the Tusker House?  What did you think?  I’ve heard from people that absolutely love it, and some that think the food variety is not so great, and the service is a bit slow.  Leave a comment below!
