I know you’ve heard this before, the DVC Duo loves breakfast! Trouble is, when doing Disney vacations the way we do them, there’s generally not a lot of time in the mornings between rope dropping and early morning magic hours, and don’t get us started on our exercise routine! So, the point is, when we go out for breakfast at Disney, we choose places that are worth the time! Que Boma – the fantastic African inspired buffet located in the Jambo House at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Resort. We have been there for both breakfast and dinner and loved them for both, but today we’re talking about the most important meal of the day! I’ll have my eggs over medium please, Nate takes his with the yolk broken and flipped over, you grab the hot sauce!
Boma is themed around an African meeting place and the centerpiece is an overflowing buffet line. The star of the buffet for me is the oak fired grill which produces succulent grilled meats and vegetables with a “can’t be beat” charred flavor. You’ll find Boma is on the bottom floor of the resort across from Jiko, and below one of our favorite lounges, Victoria Falls.
For breakfast at Boma, there’s generally an African inspired baked egg dish similar to a traditional crustless quiche. When we dined, it was prepared with ground turkey, onions, peppers, tomatoes, and curry – I loved the unique combination and although it sounds unusual, curry on eggs is delicious!
You will also generally find another dish at Boma called shakshuka with is traditionally Northern African but now more commonly seen in middle Eastern cooking. Think of a spicy tomato sauce with onions and herbs and perfectly baked eggs nestled right inside. Grab yourself a little pap to soak up the sauce and you’re in business! There are usually also a few African grain staples such as “pap” which is very similar to grits, sweet plantains which are akin to a starchy banana that are served with honey, and more traditional offerings like oatmeal.
Making your way to the carving station, you’ll find a selection of either a grilled turkey breast, ham, roast beef, or salmon. The flavors of all of them are generally pretty standard though all are well prepared from the oak fired grill. This is great for those of you who prefer a more approachable taste profile!
After the carving station, you hit more traditional breakfast offerings – scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, waffles (all the Mickey waffles you care to eat!), pancakes, etc. These are all very standard, but let’s face it, we all love a big ol American breakfast from time to time!
After the traditional offerings, you hit the cold section – fruits, yogurt bar with a wide variety of toppings (think nuts, granola, raisins, seeds), cereals. There is also a bakery selection with fresh croissants, muffins, bagels, English muffins, danish. Since you’re here, you might as well get a Kenyan press pot and really treat yourself!
We love the breakfast buffet at Boma and its popularity is infamous. You’ll want to make sure to make an advanced din
