This review reflects our experience from October 2015.
Have you ever noticed that some days in Disney you’re just so hungry? No matter how big your breakfast was or you’re just craving that mid afternoon snack, you just want more food! Luckily, finding vegan snacks in Disney World is so easy and there are even a few unique items you can find. One of our favorite places for a snack is Mr. Kamal’s in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
Mr. Kamal’s is located on the walkway between Africa and Asia. Typical to many of the snack carts, Mr. Kamal’s doesn’t open until about 10:30-11:00am. We casually waited in the seats across from Mr. Kamal’s until they opened and then ran over to get a snack.
The menu at Mr. Kamal’s features three items Falafel with Tzatziki, Hummus and Samosas. Previously they had a falafel wrap and a noodle dish, now the falafel is just balls of falafel on lettuce with tzatziki, since the tzatziki sauce isn’t vegan you can ask to swap for hummus or mango chutney.
We opted for some Hummus with Veggies and Samosas. The Samosas are basically the same that you will find at both the Tusker House buffet or from Chef TJ at Trail’s End. They are crispy and delicious! The mango salsa is always a great accompaniment with the potato and pea samosas.
The hummus was just okay. It was just your basic plain hummus. The vegetables, celery and carrot sticks, were nice and crispy. At the time of our visit the pita bread was vegan. The bread was super soft, I enjoyed the veggies with the hummus more.
This was a great snack stop that didn’t consist of popcorn or pretzels! If you find yourself “snacky” while in Animal Kingdom make sure you stop by Mr. Kamal’s. Just don’t eat too much before your Fastpass+ for Expedition Everest!
Would we go back?
Yes! The samosas were tasty! We also want to try the falafel next time.
