Inside Look at Disney's New Avengers Restaurant
June 2, 2021, 10:00 PM · Ever since the end credits scene of Marvel's original Avengers movie, Disney theme park fans have been asking for some Marvel-themed shawarma. In Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure, they finally will get their wish. But the shawarma is just the supporting act to an Ant-Man and The Wasp-themed restaurant that will once again test how far theme parks can go with their food and beverage offerings.
The conceit of Pym Test Kitchen is that Cassie Lang has started using Pym Particles to change the size of food. That's given Disney's chefs license to play with the shape and scale of a new menu, creating giant pretzels, miniature breads, and other visually unexpected fare. Chef Jeremiah Balogh talked me through some of the menu items from Pym Test Kitchen, the Pym Tasting Lab bar next door, and the Shawarma Palace food cart across the street.
