This Valentine’s Day – Morimoto Asia – the pan-Asian restaurant concept at Disney Springs at Walt Disney World in Orlando FL – is offering a specially crafted menu from Executive Chef Yuhi Fujinaga for guests in the Upstairs Private Dining Room.
The menu is “finger friendly” drawing from Asian traditions (take sushi as an example, it’s meant to be eaten with your fingers) where not only taste, sight, and smell are important but also touch.
As Executive Chef, Hawaiian-born Chef Yuhi collaborates with Master Chef Masaharu Morimoto on menu seasonal changes, specials and the new omakase program, where customers permit the chef to make their sushi selections.
Morimoto Asia offers a unique dining experience featuring exhibition kitchens that provide behind-the-scenes views complete with traditional hanging Peking roast ducks.
The restaurant’s massive, 2-story interior includes glittering 20-foot-long chandeliers, Shanghai-influenced lounges, private dining spaces and a second-level sushi bar and lounge.
For those who have never been to Morimoto Asia before, some highlights on the menu include: Sushi & Sashimi, Peking Duck, Morimoto Sticky Ribs and of course ramen (Chef Yuhi’s team won the 2021 Ramen Rumble most recently)
