Katsura Grill Opens In Epcot Japan's Pavilion

A new Quick Service Dining location has opened at the Japan Pavilion in Epcot's World Showcase.  Actually the new restaurant called Katsura Grill replaces the former Yakatori House that had been closed for about 3 months as the transformation took place.

Pam Brandon wrote on the Disney Parks Blog about this new authentic Japanese eatery:
Just in time for the busy winter holidays, Katsura Grill at the Japan Pavilion in Epcot World Showcase is open – a beautiful space that replaces the former Yakitori House. The new exterior is inspired by the strolling gardens at the historic Katsura Imperial Villa outside Kyoto, Japan, established in the 1600s and one of Japan’s cultural treasures.

It’s a nice respite on World Showcase Promenade, with quick-service dishes from sushi to Japanese curry, teriyaki and udon noodles – no big changes from the old menu (but they did add edamame, a favorite lo-cal, high-protein snack) and tweaked a few of the old favorites. Our new favorite addition is Okonomiyaki, a traditional Japanese pancake (sometimes described as a pizza) topped with veggies and a tangy sauce – crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. Also new is a crispy, panko-breaded chicken sandwich, and a cold ramen noodle dish with shredded crab stick in a sweet soy dressing.

Sip a Kirin beer, plum wine or hot or cold sake and enjoy the gardens!

Katsura Grill
Japanese Quick Service has always been a popular stop for people using the Disney Dining Plan.  The food has typically been very good and it was considered one of the best values for your Disney Dining Plan Quick Service Dining Credit.  From the description of the food that Pam Brandon mentioned above, it is safe to assume that the Katsura Grill will be as popular as its predecessor.

You don't need to be on the Disney Dining Plan to enjoy the Katsura Grill, it is open to all Epcot Guests.

Make your plans to check out this new place and its new menu during your next visit to Epcot.
