PSA: Disney World Now Serves Matzah Ball Soup

We're headed there ASAP!

Have you always dreamed of eating a hot pastrami sandwich while waiting on a mile long line for a rollercoaster? Well, you’re in luck!

This winter, Disney World is introducing its very first Jewish kitchen with all the fan favorites: matzah ball soup, black and white cookies, potato knishes and more.

L’Chaim! Holiday Kitchen is the newest addition to Disney’s annual Epcot Festival of Holidays (located between Morocco and France), and we couldn’t be more excited. From November 18 through December 30th, you can visit 12 booths that offer a different taste of seasonal holidays from around the world.

If you’re not in the mood for traditional Jewish cuisine, you can pick up a bowl of Tres Leches Rice Pudding with Pumpkin Seeds from the Feast of the Three Kings booth, or Cheese Fondue in a Bread Bowl from from the Bavaria Holiday Kitchen.

The festival isn’t the only time you can indulge in authentic cuisine. Year round, Epcot hosts restaurants and booths featuring foods from 12 different countries, including China, Germany, Italy and Mexico. Notably, Israel is not on the list… yet.

Here’s the full menu:

  • Pastrami on Rye with House-made Pickles and Deli Mustard
  • Potato Knish with Herb Sour Cream
  • Chicken and Matzah Ball Soup
  • Black and White Cookie.
  • Egg Cream: Milk, Chocolate and Seltzer
  • Brooklyn Brewery Brooklyn Lager
  • Blue Cosmo cocktail

This year, Hannukah begins early on December 2nd, which begs the question: why aren’t latkes included on the Jewish kitchen’s menu? Alas, we’ll take what we can get.

Keep on Noshing
