The Hungry Bear Restaurant has always had a special place in my heart. Some of my earliest memories of going to Disneyland as a kid was going to the Hungry Bear. Not so much for the food, but the atmosphere. It feels like you're in the wilderness, and as you eat, the Mark Twain and the Columbia cruise by on the Rivers of America. The Columbia shoots it's cannon right there and on the other side, the Disneyland Railroad goes by. It's Disneyland at it's very best.
So I was very happy to learn that not only has Hungry Bear come back after weeks of rehab, but they have a brand new menu. And it looks awesome!
Fried Green Tomato Sandwich
Some of the new additions to the menu include: an Angus 1/3-pound chili cheeseburger (or skip the chili and just go for the cheeseburger) topped with a fried onion ring, a yummy fried green tomato sandwich with jicama-mango slaw, crispy chicken sandwich with honey-mustard sauce and turkey and provolone on a multi-grain roll with basil mayo and a crisp slaw on the side.
Take a look at Big Al’s chicken salad with smoked chicken, lettuce, watermelon, candied pecans, dried cherries, pickled red onion and honey-lime vinaigrette (make it vegetarian and skip the chicken).
Big Al's Chicken Salad
For some reason I see Big Al eating the Chili Cheese Burger instead of a SALAD!
Make any meal a combo with sweet potato fries or fruit. And for Kids? Burgers with sweet potato fries or fruit; chicken breast nuggets with fruit; a “power pack” with string cheese, nonfat yogurt, sliced apples and whole-grain “fish” crackers; and mac and cheese.
