Do you know what “PCH” stands for? Most folks think it’s for Pacific Coast Highway – but at Disney’s PCH Grill they’re now saying “Pure Culinary Heaven.”
With a riff on the picnics, barbecues and bonfires that happen often at Pacific Coast Highway beaches, the team at Disney’s PCH Grill has created a new nightly buffet starting on July 17 with tastes inspired by all of California’s coastline, from the southern San Diego shores all the way to the northern redwoods.
Start with a carving station with dry-rubbed smoked tri-tip beef and baby back ribs, or the seafood sauté station with shrimp Alfredo with cavatappi pasta, or littleneck clams, chorizo and potatoes, cooked in broth with a roasted garlic-herb crostini. Then there’s wood-fired pizzas, mini taco station (beer-battered sustainable fish or veggie tacos), spice-rubbed pork shoulder, and sides such a roasted potato salad, heirloom tomato-mozzarella salad, deviled eggs and a build-your-own salad bar.
Add kid favorites like a mac ‘n’ cheese bar, fried chicken, seasonal veggies, whole-roasted salmon, smashed potatoes, cheeseburger sliders and mini hot dogs.
Dessert is mostly in your hands: a s’mores bar or build-your-own strawberry shortcake, fancy ice cream cones filled with vanilla bean, passion fruit and strawberry mousse. Or there’s a brioche fresh fruit pizza (made in the wood-burning oven), seasonal berry crisp and milk chocolate caramel tart (with sea salt and bacon brittle!). Add a little taste of the islands with creamy haupia pudding with layers of coconut and mango.
Sip a Party Wave Lemonade – we won’t spoil this deliciously sweet surprise by telling you what’s in it – but it could be dessert. Or enjoy peach and orange tea or watermelon lemonade (all three cost extra).
Cost is $27.99, $13.99 ages 3 to 9. Hours are 5:30-9 p.m. nightly. For reservations, visit Disneyland.com/dine or call 714-781-DINE.
