One of the advantages of living in Orlando is being able to do touristy things on any regular day. Spending part of a gorgeous Wednesday walking around Disney Springs is one of those things. For lunch I decided on Morimoto Asia, because I’d never been, it’s usually easy to find veggie food at Asian restaurants, and my son loves tofu.
It appears they get very busy at dinner as there is a stand outside just for taking dinner reservations (it is Disney), but for lunch that day there was no wait. It’s an elegant atmosphere with cool chandeliers hanging in the main dining room. It’s not fancy though, and I felt comfortable having my toddler there (for lunch anyway). Our waitress was wonderful, knowledgeable about the menu and attentive.
I ordered the Vegetable Sushi Roll with brown rice. It was filled with asparagus, avocado, spring mix, cucumber and carrot. I also got the Veggie Pad Thai without egg.
I’m a little picky about my Pad Thai, but this one was good. You only get three pieces of fried tofu though, so don’t expect a lot. There are plenty of other veggies with the noodles to make it a filling dish.
Some additional menu items that look promising: edamame, vegetable dumplings, vegetable egg roll (though that is fried), sesame balls, miso soup, house greens salad, wok sautéed Chinese vegetables, Szechuan long beans, steamed vegetables and the veggie tofu medley. Check with your server to be certain these are vegan.
Morimoto Asia is a very pleasant place to have a meal, with lots of veg-friendly options and many healthy ones at that.
