We were invited by Morimoto Asia to come and try their menu for Asian Heritage Month. Morimoto Asia is located at Disney Springs at the Walt Disney World Resort. The Landing at Disney Springs is the venue for Morimoto’s very first “Pan-Asian” restaurant.
Morimoto Asia is a beautiful two-story restaurant with chandeliers over 20 ft. Fun fact, they are actually made of old fishing baskets. They added colorful lights to reflect off the chandeliers specially for Asian Heritage Month.
We went to try out the special menu dedicated to Asian Heritage Month but we also got to try some restaurant favorites. The first up was one of their most popular dishes, Morimoto Spare Ribs- pork ribs, cilantro, hoisin sweet chili glaze. The ribs were fall of the bone delicious, I would go back just for more of these.
Also a restaurant staple is the Crispy Popcorn Shrimp Tempura- signature tempura shrimp, spicy gochujang aioli. These two items are regulars on the menu at Morimoto Asia and I highly recommend.

Here is a look at the limited-time menu available until the end of May.
The Salmon Tartare was incredible. It was very nice and light and the perfect appetizer. All the flavors blended so well together.
This was the A5 Wagyu Loco Moco. It’s a Wagyu Beef/ Filet Mignon blend served sizzling over a bed of rice. Another incredible dish. The egg and mushroom were so yummy with the burger. They said the rice is washed and polished right in house.
For dessert we had a Filipino-inspired shaved ice. The tropical boba pearls paired well with the sweetend shaved ice.
We had an amazing time. The service was excellent and I loved every bite of food. It’s definitely one of the top restaurants located in Disney Springs. You can view a full menu here. I recommend getting reservations for your next trip.
