Boma – Flavors of Africa is buffet style dining at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge Resort.
This is a very popular family restaurant and it is advisable to book in advance which you can now do either by phoning Disney Dining direct or alternatively on-line via the Disney web site 180 days before you preferred date.
Located downstairs at Animal Kingdom Resort the restaurant is large and is ideal for those wanting a lively family atmosphere – if you are looking for a romantic meal for 2 then you would be advised to look elsewhere.
The restaurant is designed to resemble an African marketplace with pod areas serving different types of food, i. e. children’s selection, fire grilled meats, soups etc. You can up to the buffet selection as many times as you want.
The menu mainly has an African influence and some of my personal favorites were the wood roasted meats (beef, pork, chicken and salmon) the Bobotie which is a lamb and beef quiche with onions, raisins and bread. Our son opted for the normal chicken tenders with fries and pasta with meatballs.
There is an excellent range of soups to choose from including the Coconut Curry Seafood soup, Seafood Gumbo and even Chicken Corn Porridge. I opted for the Butternut Squash Soup, which was very sweet to say the least and not what you would normally expect a soup to taste like.
For people who love salads then there is a vast range including Chicken salad with Chili Cilantro, Moroccan Seafood Salad, Pasta Salad and Kooi Siaai. There is complemented with the normal mixed greens, various vinaigrettes and couscous.
Once you have completed your main course then you can visit the incredible selection of desserts and fruits. Each of the desserts are small portions but there is nothing to stop you going back for more. Some of the desserts do have alcohol in them but they are clearly labeled. My favorites were the Zebra Domes and Simba Paw Prints both of which are highly addictive. The Mango and Apricot dessert got an 11 out of 10 from my husband and our son opted for the Chocolate Brownie and the normal cookies.
There are chefs located at each of the different stations so that they can answer any questions you have and they will always look to accommodate any with special dietary requirements.
The current cost is $36 per adult and children $16. The price includes the buffet and non-alcoholic drinks and tea /coffee in the price. Wine and alcoholic drinks are available including a twist on the traditional Pina Colada with raspberries and the Blue ‘Glow-Tini’.
I would strongly recommend Boma to anyone visiting Disney, everyone will find something that they enjoy, and then after dinner take the chance to explore the Animal Kingdom Lodge.
