Knowing where a restaurant gets its fresh fish, vegetables, fruit, and meat can be comforting for many of us. But at this restaurant located in Disney Springs, it may be a little troubling.
Whether visiting Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, EPCOT, or Disney Springs, Walt Disney World Resort is full of fantastic table service restaurants.
Many of them are highly themed, making Guests feel as if they’ve been transported to another world. Other restaurants are full of foods inspired by other cultures, giving Guests the opportunity to taste something different and new.
Morimoto Asia is a pan-Asian restaurant taking inspiration from multiple countries and cultures to create one dazzling menu. Upon visiting this restaurant’s official Disney Springs website, you’ll see that it’s listed as “Fine/Signature Dining,” so you can be sure you’ll have a fancy dining experience.
The man behind the name, Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto, is a Japanese master chef whose work has led him to become known all over the world. His dishes are innovative and inventive, and Guests can taste them right at Disney Springs. The beautiful restaurant is home to dishes inspired by Chinese, Japanese, and Korean tastes, with Chef Masaharu Morimoto’s own spin.
However, two Guests recently dined at the restaurant and were unpleasantly surprised at a core part of the experience.
As we can see in the video, the two Guests found out that upon ordering wagyu beef, they received a certificate of authenticity. What’s troubling about this certificate is how intimately it describes the cow from which the meat was taken.
The cow’s name, birthday, and even its unique nose print are all listed on the certificate, giving the two Guests more than they bargained for when they ordered the wagyu!
