During Hispanic Heritage Month in 2022 we received a new vegan option at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The Spiced Potato Hand Pies from Kusafiri in Africa were replaced with Impossible Empanadas and the replacement stayed on permanently. Kusafiri Coffee Shop and Bakery is a small window location between Tusker House and the Kilimanjaro Safaris queue. They serve snacks after 10:30am.
The Impossible Empanadas feature an Impossible Picadillo in a flaky empanada dough. They also come with a dipping sauce which is not noted on the menu, but is also vegan. The picadillo includes raisins, olives, and tomatoes with the impossible meat.
I was a little nervous with this one since I don’t love a sneaky raisin, however I never even noticed it in mine despite mine being very visible in my photos. The dough had a nice softness to it and crisp to the edges of the empanada. It was a great little snack to enjoy. Though if I had to choose between this and the potato hand pies I would pick the potato ones.
