Culture Film/Television Theme Parks What's New

Disneyland’s New Avengers Campus Food Lineup Was Just Released

Disneyland just announced the opening date of their new Avengers Campus, a section of the California Adventure theme park dedicated to all things Marvel.

With the announcement of the superhero area, which opens on July 18th, came a sneak preview of the different food options that will come in the park. Each of them is packed with all of the eye-catching, Instagram worthy treats you would expect from Disney, but with some unique and interesting twists as well.

The big restaurant in the area is the Pym Test Kitchen, which will focus on making foods in both giant and little sizes. We knew about this dining area beforehand, but we’re getting a look at some of the foods it will be selling for the first time.

An item that veers on the more shocking end is this Not So Little Chicken Sandwich. Think a German schnitzel-sized cut of chicken breast, but with flavors like teriyaki and red chili sauces slathered on top. The bun-to-cutlet ratio on this sandwich is pretty comical upon first glance.

Other items in the Pym Test Kitchen include a pasta dish made with Impossible Foods meatballs, both in giant and tiny form, served inside of a giant spoon with a tiny fork.

There’s also giant pretzels and elongated “Pym-Nini” sandwiches that you can order by the portion, or take an extra-long one for the whole squad to share.

Another eating option in the Avengers Campus is called “Terran Treats,” and it focuses on vibrant and eye-catching eats of all kinds. The only items we know about so far from here are a “Cosmic Cream Orb,” which is a creampuff stuffed with purple raspberry cheesecake mousse, and “Space Ration Churros.” These spiral-shaped churros come in the colors of the six Infinity Stones from Marvel and Avengers lore.

In a nod to the 2012 Avengers film, Disneyland has also confirmed that there will be a shawarma cart inside of Avengers Campus, serving up standard shawarmas with protein options like chicken and falafel.

We’ll obviously know a lot more details about the full food lineup when the park opens in July, but for now, the options that we’re seeing are definitely tantalizing.

We’re Hungry Just Gazing At This MASSIVE Platter of Arroz Mamposteao

Ever heard of Arroz Mamposteao before? Neither did I, until I saw this video, but man, does it look tasty.

Instagram user @cy_eats captured the video of this massive platter of the Puerto Rican rice dish being prepared for the Gastronomico Porta del Sol festival held at Parque del Litoral in Mayagüez, Puerto Rico. While some of the description was lost in translation, she was able to tell us that this particular dish was served in a 40-45 inch wide platter and contained pigeon peas, bacon, chorizo sausage, chicken, paprika, chicken broth, and tomato.

Based on some research, Arroz Mamposteao is a simple but traditional combination of bean stew with rice, which gets added to the soup after everything else cooks. Apart from the ingredients above, other typical ingredients in the stew include onion, green peppers, cumin, and local seasoning. Plantains often top the dish (as they do in the above video, along with asparagus, bell peppers, and what looks to be cucumbers or zucchini) to add some extra sweetness.

If all of that sounds like your jam, try making your own Arroz Mamposteao at home and see how it turns out.
