The new menus are rolling out this week with all of the new plant-based options! Yesterday was the roll out of Quick Service options and tomorrow we’ll see the new Table Service options! The website seemed a bit off when we were updating out Vegan Options in the Parks pages so we decided to give them time to sort it out and went to Hollywood Studios!
We were on a mission to go try the allegedly new plant-based version of the Fried Green Tomato Sandwich at Rosie’s All American Cafe. But after seeing the menu not have the icon next to it, we spoke with a coordinator only to find out it is still not plant-based. She did, however, tell us that they updated the chili bowl at Fairfax Fare so we decided to give that a try instead.
Previously Fairfax Fare had a hidden 7-Layer (but actually 5) vegan chili bowl you could get. It wasn’t on the physical menu but was on the app. They have now revamped it into the Southwest Bowl which lives on the menu!
The new version of the bowl comes with vegan rice (previously you had to swap for the vegan rice), vegan chili, corn salsa, pico de gallo, vegan cheddar shreds, vegan cilantro ranch, and crispy tortilla strips.
The bowl was a hefty portion and very filling. The flavors in it were great too. The ranch was the perfect amount, adding a nice creaminess that the old bowl was missing. The chili is bean and soy crumble based. This is a great option to share if you’re looking for something lighter, or a large portion if you’re very hungry. The bowl came out super quick too, which is always great when ordering vegan. I will absolutely be getting this bowl again.
