Eat More Chicken !

Since our visit to WDW last year we have made a few eating changes....we have stopped eating beef, wildgame and pork. We are pretty much at the point where all we eat is Chicken, Fish & Seafood. With this in mind-I'm looking for food options in Disney that fall into our new "category" of eating. Please share with me your favorite (chicken, fish, seafood) food and where you found it at ! muchlove

If Flying Fish has reopened you will find great selection there. And if it is food and wine time at Epcot the food stations have great fish and chicken options.

I love Sanaa's Tandoori Chicken, they also have great shrimp & vegetarian appetizers.
The Chicken at 'Ohana is also pretty fantastic, I was skeptical but it is absolutely delish.

These I haven't tried, however...
Boathouse is supposedly THE new place for seafood.
Jungle Navigation Co. Skippers Canteen also has a good selection of fish, chicken, and vegetarian options.

Disney's menus in general tend to always have a fish, chicken, and/or vegetarian option available. That should leave you with a minimum of three selections anywhere you go. You can always consider ordering an appetizer for an entree if that suits your diet better.

What about Turkey Legs? Those are good.

I really enjoyed the chicken nuggets at the place at DHS that's on the corner where you turn to go to Rockin' Rollercoaster in in front of Tower of Terror. They were not oily like most are.

My husband says that his pick would be the fish & chips from Yorkshire County in Epcot. Also available at Rose and Crown. He says he could eat that all vacation and be very happy.

I hear that Cape May Cafe has an awesome Seafood Buffet with all you can eat crab legs. I thought about going on our trip because I love seafood but my fiance isn't a fan.

My picks would be Narcoossee's, Cape May Cafe, and the Boathouse. I use to be a vegetarian but now have added fish and seafood into my diet and those were the places with my favorite meals last year. Cape May is amazing and there is so much to choose from and the dessert part of the buffet is so good!

I only eat chicken laugh so hopefully I can help. Sanaa and yak and yeti are some of my favourites. Olivia's chicken sandwich was really good too. Have a read of my trip reports if you need some inspiration and pictures Wink

Can confirm that the Boathouse does indeed have fabulous seafood. The portion sizes are massive too. The truffle fries are delish and would easily serve two. I don't like crab but tried G's lobster stuffed with crab and gosh it was amazing. We love the Boathouse so much that we plan on eating there at least twice on the next visit (lunch and dinner). We had dinner out on the deck overlooking the water and could see the EPCOT fireworks in November it was just magical.

This is one place we have wanted to eat at and just never made it...maybe this time!

We almost made Sanaa's last time and it didn't work out- added back to my list! Thanks for the reminder!
I have looked at the Jungle Skippers Canteen but nothing has tickled my fancy, yet I really want to eat there- just to eat there!

Good suggestion Mandy! and I remember reading they have a nice upstairs eating area that is sometimes a bit quieter .

I know, G doesn't ask for anything at Disney he just loves it all but he specifically said we are going back there. We ate lunch there and booked to have dinner at the end of lunch! We did not realize how large the sides and starters were going to be and somewhat "over endulged" I really really wanted the key lime pie for dessert but was so full, they gave it to me as take out and oh my goodness it was one of the best I have ever had.

We just ate there during Spring Break and it was VERY quiet upstairs. It was great.

The lobster at Shula's Steak House (The Dolphin Resort) melts in your mouth. I don't eat beef either. When my husband picked out Shula's as his dinner choice I was a little nervous but everything was wonderful.

I've had great seafood and poultry at any number of restaurants - Coral Reef, Teppan Edo, Yak and Yeti, Sanaa, Artist Point, California Grill, the Wave, Kona Cafe, and Olivia's come to mind. The buffets and family-style places usually have poultry and/or seafood on the menu as well.

The Butter Chicken at Sanaa/Kidani is to die for! Combine it with the bread service and you'll think you've gone to heaven! angelwings angelwings angelwings

We usually avoid buffets (germ-a-phobes) but I did go to Boma in July and it was outstanding! All are great considerations! Sanaa is on my list of places to go ...

I keep hearing about the Butter Chicken and still haven't tried it- guess I better make it a priority!

Ugh I have the same issue. I consider myself a fairly adventurous eater and I still can't find much to get excited about here. Except maybe the arepas...

I second Columbia Harbor House and Yak & Yeti. The Kobe Beef burger is my go to but the chicken lettuce wraps and miso salmon are both to die for.

The chicken Lo Mein at Yak & Yeti is very good too and it's a very healthy portion.
