Yak & Yeti Local Food Cafes is located in the Asia section of the Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World. The menu here is filled with your favorite Asian cuisine. This is the outdoor-only quick service counterpart to the Yak and Yeti. So that means you can expect to find some of the same menu items here as its sit-down counterpart. If you are eating here it is a little less ideal on those hot scorching summer days. There are some shaded seats so it isn’t all bad. Plus the Gorillas are hanging out next door and often put on a show for you! Let’s take a look at our full Yak & Yeti Local Food Cafes dining review.

A Tour Around Yak & Yeti Local Food Cafes
A look at Yak and Yeti Local Food Cafes at the Animal Kingdom.
Yak and Yeti Counter Service restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! I must say hands down this is the spot for breakfast, the breakfast tacos are the best! If you are a vegetarian be sure to check the menu linked above because just about all the options here have some sort of meat in them. Though the selection here has been changing a bit over the years.
I just love how well Disney themes everything. This is a look at the pickup counter where you wait for your food after ordering.
Here is a section of the seating area that is located next to the pickup counter. As you can see most of the tables are covered by a structure or umbrella but there is no air conditioning here.
Across from the seating area, these guys above provide the entertainment. They are quite loud but it depends on the day and time whether they will be out and running around or snoozing away the afternoon.
Dishes from Yak & Yeti Local Food Cafes
Here is a look at the dishes we tried from Yak & Yeti Local Foods Cafes.
American Kobe Beef Burger
This Kobe burger gets two thumbs up just like the one inside of the sit-down, Yak and Yeti. Lots of flavor in the burger which is what I always look for. There is a salty seasoning to the burger much like the one found of the fries here. This is my go to menu item when we stop here for lunch.
I highly recommend stopping here if you are looking for a quick burger to grab at the Animal Kingdom. It’s also great they have this on the menu if you have a family member that isn’t a fan of Asian food. A burger is always a safe backup option for everyone.
Korean Fried Chicken Sandwich
This sandwich has some heat to it. So if you don’t handle spicy food well, I would skip ordering this item off of the menu. The Korean Fried Chicken Sandwich comes with a slaw topping and a yummy sweet Korean Sauce sauce that packed the heat we mentioned earlier. This is all of course sandwiched between a hamburger bun and comes with a side of french fries.
Asian Chicken Wrap
This is the Asian Chicken Wrap. The wrap has sliced Chicken, Mixed Greens and Tomatoes served on a Whole Wheat Tortilla with Chips. There was a really great dressing on it that pulled the whole thing together. Everything was freshly made and delicious, no soggy lettuce here!
Teriyaki Chicken Salad
Whenever your unsure what to order off the menu Teriyaki Chicken is always a safe bet. You have to be hard-pressed to hate Teriyaki Chicken. This salad is a great healthy option here at Yak and Yeti. It was a perfect pick on one of the hotter summer days we were visiting Animal Kingdom. On a hot summer day here in Florida, the last thing you want to do is sit outside and chow down on hot food.
I actually ended up liking this better than the sandwich I had ordered. Even if it was the middle of a scorching hot summer day here in Florida. You just can’t go wrong with Teriyaki Beef!
Side of Fried Rice
This side left us both feeling a little underwhelmed. We were hungry and wanted to try something new so we added this side onto our dinner but we just couldn’t finish it. It was mostly just rice with a sparing amount of soy sauce. So it didn’t pack a whole lot of flavor or seem more special than the rice that comes with say the beef dish above.
Yak & Yeti Local Food Cafes Review Recommendation
If you are looking for something new to try this is a great place to stop in. It offers a lot of the fantastic food that you can get at Yak and Yeti sit down but for a fraction of the price and time. Even though we really enjoy the food here I would say if you are only getting to eat at one quick service spot at the Animal Kingdom I would look into Satuli Canteen or Flame Tree Barbeque before coming here.

I have been visiting the parks annually since my parents first brought me at just a year old. Recently I was able to fulfill my life long dream of being a Florida local and moved from the wintery Northeast to the sunshine and fun of central Florida. Now I am hoping to share my Disney knowledge with you so you can have the best vacation possible!
