We previously announced that Chef José Andrés would be opening Jaleo at Disney Springs. We have also learned from Disney Parks Blog that José Andrés’ ThinkFoodGroup will also be opening one of the first-ever brick-and-mortar locations for Pepe by José Andrés, which is inspired by the popular Washington DC food truck of the same name. Per Disney Parks Blog, Pepe by José Andrés, will be located right next to Jaleo at Disney Springs, and will feature an extensive menu of hot and cold Spanish-style sandwiches including bocatas and bikinis, showcasing the best of José’s native country Spain.
Some of the delicious food offerings are expected to include:
- Pollo Frito, made with breaded chicken breast, alioli, bravas sauce, piparra peppers, gem lettuce, and sherry dressing
- Serrano y Manchego, served on crispy Pan de Cristal with tomato fresco
- Bocata de Vegetales, made with roasted peppers, onion, green asparagus, spinach, and manchego cheese on Pan de Cristal
In addition to the sandwiches, Pepe will serve salads, soups and sides along with Spanish sangria. The walls of Pepe are decorated with an elaborate mural by Marc Jesús, a famous Menorcan painter, featuring his ever-happy, blue-skinned female characters. The space, as well as Jaleo, was designed by celebrated Spanish designer Juli Capella.
