Carthay Circle Restaurant at Disney California Adventure park always feels special, with décor that reflects the glamour of Hollywood’s Golden Age and a menu of featuring California flavors. And just for the holidays, there’s a special menu with seasonal dishes at this Disneyland Resort signature restaurant, but you’ll still find favorites like the Carthay Signature Fried Biscuits, Fire Cracker Duck Wings and the Wagyu Beef & Truffle Ravioli.
On both the lunch and dinner menus, the new Chili Relleno “Open Face” with crispy duck confit, butternut squash and prickly pear vinaigrette is a flavorful starter. Also the Chilled “Del Pacifico” Shrimp on Hot Gorditas with avocado and mango-habanero vinaigrette. Or the Roasted Parsnip-Chestnut Soup.
The guest-favorite king salmon is served with coconut red rice and a mint and golden bell pepper miso lime broth. And for dinner, there’s a Crispy Buttermilk Fried Quail with cranberry bean salad, kale-pecan pesto and a blood orange sauce. Leg of lamb and holiday prime rib round out the savory seasonal menu.
But you may want to eat dessert first – or at least save room for Valrhona Chocolate Peppermint Mousse Crunch, Holiday Ginger Caramel Monkey Bread or a Vanilla Custard Tart with Cranberry Compote.
Happy Holidays! For reservations, call 714-781-DINE or visit Disneyland.com/dining.
