Are you heading over to Disneyland any time soon? You might want to stop by the Paradise Pier Hotel and check out the new Beach Side Bonfire Dinner Buffet at the PCH Grill, which features food inspired by California’s vast coastline.
There is a mini taco station which offers either veggie tacos or beer-battered sustainable fish. The seafood saute station has delectables such as shrimp Alfredo with cavatappi pasta or littleneck clams with chorizo and potatoes cooked in broth with a roasted garlic crostini. The carving station features baby back ribs and dry-rubbed smoked tri-tip beef. Spice-rubbed pork shoulder and wood-fired pizzas are also available. And if that’s not enough to tempt you, there is a build-your-own salad bar! Side dishes include deviled eggs, roasted potato salad, and heirloom tomato-mozzarella salad.
For those of you thinking, “But what will the kids eat?” have no fear: the kids were not forgotten. They can eat fried chicken, whole-roasted salmon, mini hot dogs, and cheeseburger sliders with sides of smashed potatoes and seasonal veggies. And – wait for it – there is a mac ‘n cheese bar!
If you still have room after that, you’ll definitely want to check out the dessert offerings. There is a brioche fresh fruit pizza, a milk chocolate caramel tart with sea salt and bacon brittle, and a seasonal berry crisp. If you’re more of a do-it-yourself-er, there is a s’mores bar and a build-your-own strawberry shortcake bar. Don’t forget the creamy haupia pudding with layers of mango and coconut or the ice cream cones filled with vanilla bean, passion fruit, and strawberry mousse.
To drink, try a new Party Wave Lemonade, which reportedly could be a dessert itself. You may also enjoy watermelon lemonade or peach or orange tea. All three drinks are an extra charge.
Starting July 17, this nightly feast will be available from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The cost is $27.99 for ages 10 and up and $13.99 for ages 3 – 9. For reservations, call 714-781-DINE or visit Disneyland.com/dine.
