For the first time ever, we can get a real quick service breakfast in a park! A true quick service style breakfast, one that doesn’t require a reservation (looking at you Be Our Guest), is available at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at ABC Commissary.
ABC Commissary is located in Commissary Lane, next to Sci-Fi Dine-In Theatre. They’ve had a great vegan burger here for a while, but they just revamped their breakfast menu and added a vegan option!
We went there knowing we were going to try the new option direct off the menu, Plant-based Chilaquiles. We also wanted to see about what else could be modified and if they had a kids option. We asked to speak with a coordinator, and I’m glad we did because our cashier at first was very dismissive about what we could get.
While speaking with the coordinator she told us we could get the Avocado Toast with vegan egg, the Shrimp and Grits could be vegan by having extra veggies instead of the shrimp and no cheese in the grits, and that we could do the kids Eggs and Sweet Potato Bites with a vegan egg instead. We ordered the Plant-based Chilaquiles and the kids Vegan Egg with Sweet Potato Bites.
I was pretty excited about the chilaquiles, after having them in Disney’s California Adventure at Lamplight Lounge. However when I saw them, they looked nothing like what I was expecting.
The Plant-based Chilaquiles here are essentially breakfast nachos. The base it tortilla strips, like you would throw on a bowl or in a salad, then topped with a corn, pepper, and black bean mixture. On that was the vegan egg, pico de gallo, and guacamole. We noticed after the fact that the menu said it was supposed to have a rancho sauce, we’re unsure if it was in the bean mix or was supposed to be on top?
They tasted pretty good, but were kind of hard to eat because of the tortilla strips. I was hoping they would be more traditional, with actual fried corn tortillas and a tomato sauce. The “egg” was cooked well, and the pico was good. The guacamole had that pre-made bagged guac taste, but it was fine. The serving is a large size and a great bang for your buck. Bridget and I actually shared the dish and were both full.
The kids option was just vegan egg with tots. The “egg” was cooked well on this too, not grainy or mushy. It wasn’t seasoned really at all. The tots were great though. The kids didn’t like them but we did. They were chunky on the inside and a nice crispy outside. They were very much only sweet potato too.
Our meal was good and very easy to get (they also have mobile ordering if you’re just getting the Plant-based Chilaquiles). I think I would try the Avocado Toast next time, as the chilaquiles weren’t amazing. ABC Commissary only serves breakfast until 10, so if you’re planning on trying this, make sure you plan to be there before 10.
