Disney fans will be able to refuel on Spanish food as they mingle with Mickie and Minnie, thanks to José Andrés and his latest Jaleo restaurant, which opened its doors on March 17th at Disney Springs. This is the chef’s “pioneering brand that popularized tapas dining in the US,” and now it’s setting up shop in Florida".

The menu reflects Spain’s culinary diversity, with emblematic dishes from all of its regions, including escalivada catalana (roasted vegetables with a sherry dressing), pisto Manchego (similar to ratatouille), Canary Island potatoes with mojo sauce, Canary Island rabbit confit, Asturian chorizo sausage, Galician-style octopus, and Basque-style grilled sea bass. Customers can also tuck into their favorites, like  Russian salad, garlic prawns, and patatas bravas.

There’s also a wide range of the best charcuterie and cheese from Spain, including Ibérico ham shoulder, Manchego cheese platter, Torta Pascualete, Idiazabal cheese, Serrano ham, Ibérico sobrassada, chorizo and salchichón. The cheeses come from Murcia, Asturias, Cadiz and the Basque Country.

Right beside Jaleo, the chef is also opening its first fixed Pepe by José Andrés location, his popular food truck that has been turning people into Spanish food fans on the streets of Washington, DC for about six years. This locale will serve informal food such as salads, sandwiches and soups to go.

This is the superstar Spanish chef’s fifth Jaleo outpost in the US, his first in Florida and his largest locale. Andrés first opened Jaleo way back in 1993 in Washington, DC.
