The Three Items You HAVE To Try When Avengers Campus Opens

Avengers Campus opens up inside of Disney’s California Adventure on June 4th, and with it will come a slew of foods with fun and wacky twists.

The theme park crew did a lot of work with the Imagineering team to bring their food to life, according to a Q&A session with reporters, and it shows in pretty much every aspect of the culinary offerings.

Foodbeast got a chance to try out several of the new food items ahead of the land’s opening, and these were the eats that stood out the most to us.

Impossible Spoonful

The new restaurant in Avengers Campus, Pym’s Test Kitchen, is very liberal with choosing which items to shrink and expand to create a mind-boggling dish.

In this case, they have a cocktail fork stabbing a baseball-sized Impossible Foods Meatball, plus a smaller plant-based meatball, along with tiny pieces of pasta plus larger rigatoni, all of which are sauced up and served inside of a bowl-sized spoon.

It’s insane on visuals, but doesn’t skimp out on taste. The meatball, surprisingly, was quite juicy for a meat-free protein option.

Not So Little Fried Chicken Sandwich

Remember those viral two-finger gloves that people would use to eat fried chicken? This bun is essentially an edible form of those, and its size compared to the platter-sized chicken cutlet is comical.

That being said, if you do treat this like a Taiwanese Hot Star chicken filet, and hold the bun while chomping around it, this meal will deliver on flavor, especially with the heat and spices coming from the sauces drizzled on top.

Cosmic Cream Puff

This sweet treat surprised us with all of the little nuances it had. If held in the right sunlight, there’s plenty of sparkly sugar coating the top. When you bust it open, the raspberry cheesecake mousse inside has an extremely satisfying consistency.

When it comes to taste, you would expect a kaleidoscopic cream puff to be extremely sweet. However, the tang of the cheesecake helps keep everything balanced, and while it is still quite sweet, it’s not overwhelming.

Of course, these are just a few of the items available, as shawarma, giant pretzels, unique takes on Caesar Salad, and a slew of unique beverages are also awaiting those anticipating the Avengers Campus opening. Regardless of what you get, each dish is going to make you rethink how the classic it’s inspired by could be eaten.

Disneyland’s Avengers Campus, With Its WILD Food Creations, Set To Open June 4th

After much anticipation, Disneyland’s hyped-up Avengers Campus will finally be opening inside of the California Adventure theme park on June 4th.

Disneyland itself will be reopening at the end of April, which means early parkgoers will have to wait a few weeks before they can step inside the Marvel-themed section of the park.

Once they do, there will be a variety of fantasy-based food located throughout Avengers Campus, a lot of which has been revealed in previous sneak peeks.

The new food vendors include Pym’s Test Kitchen and Tasting Lab, where you can find foods sized both giant and small (plus plenty of beer and cocktails), Shawarma Palace (a restaurant from the first Avengers movie with plant-based Impossible Shawarma), and Terran Treats (located near the Guardians of the Galaxy ride and is filled with churros and other sweet treats).

One of the biggest companies involved in this futuristic food lineup is Impossible Foods, whose plant-based meat will be found throughout the land in the form of meatballs, the aforementioned shawarma, and more.

It’ll be exciting to see this new part of Disneyland open up, and we can’t wait to see what the food will be like as well.

To get into the park, for now, you have to be a California resident, as well as score an online reservation and have an admissible theme park ticket for the date you want to visit.
