It’s official! The popular Kona Island Sushi Bar at Disney’s Polynesian Resort is permanent.
We’ve been stopping by to chat with the sushi chefs and order our favorites for a while – but now we can share the news that the 20-seat eatery is here to stay, located right outside of Kona Cafe near the monorail.
Mornings they serve coffee, tea, pastries and fruit. At 5 p.m., the menu morphs to sushi with about a half-dozen rolls, sashimi (fish without rice) and nigiri (fish with rice). If you prefer your fish cooked, try the shrimp tempura roll with fresh mango or the Kona crab cake roll with fresh jumbo lump crab cake, avocado and Asian tartar sauce.
Traditionalists can stick with salmon or tuna sashimi or the delicious tuna poke salad. For vegetarians, there’s a cucumber roll.
Pair your pick with a classic mai tai or Kona Cool Sundown cocktail, Kona Fire Rock Pale Ale or Kona Longboard lager, wine or sake. Kampai!
