Bongos Cuban Cafe

“So I decided there is nothing better than to enjoy food and drink and to find satisfaction in work. Then I realized that these pleasures are from the hand of God.  For who can eat or enjoy anything apart from him?” (Ecc 2:24-25).

My husband and I spent a week in Disney World so I thought I would devote a few days to post about the places we had visited. Sometimes I feel guilty for enjoying time away, but if God has blessed us with the means to enjoy these activities then there should be no guilt— all good things come from God (James 1:17).

On the first day we were at Disney, we visited Bongos Cuban Café, located in Downtown Disney West. We ordered the Parrillada de Mariscos. On the Disney Dining Plan, you can go to almost any restaurant on Disney property and order nearly any entre. This was the first time I had eaten lobster. It tasted like a large, dense, tasteless shrimp— I guess it would have tasted better if I had dipped it in the butter sauce, but I can’t have anything oily.

The jumbo shrimp, fish, mussels, and clams were wonderfully spiced. The yellow rice had a good flavor. There was so much food— I couldn’t finish the rice and the fried green plantains. The Disney Dining Plan allows a dessert so we ordered the Tres Leche cake.


If you like seafood and if you are in the Disney area, then be sure to visit this restaurant.
