My Favorite Buffet - Boma at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge

Boma is a buffet with an African flavor and has many different multicultural influences as well.
The restaurant has an open kitchen, a wood-burning grill and a rotisserie.

There are several areas featuring a variety of foods, such as a wood roasted meat section, salads, and soups.
We love the soups. They change them frequently, but usually include a few of these:

Chicken Corn Porridge
Smoked Tomato Soup
Creamy Carrot and Ginger Soup
Coconut Currey Seafood Soup
Cote D'Ivoire Seafood Gumbo
Butternut Squash Soup (which is more like a dessert, it's so sweet and creamy)
She Crab Soup (my favorite)

My wife really enjoys the different dips and breads.

 But you have to save room for dessert. Like the rest of the buffet, there is something for everyone.

My very favorite thing though, is the Zebra Dome. Zebra Domes consist of a thin layer of white cake, a dome of Amarula Liqueur mousse, coated in a white chocolate ganache with a dark chocolate ganache drizzle and are one of the most talked about foods at Disney World!

Boma is open for Breakfast and Dinner, and we enjoy both.

There are offerings for every taste, from simple to adventurous, so I highly recommend it for a large group. I can't imagine anyone in the group wouldn't find something they like.

  1. Yep, very late to respond but this is also my favourite buffet.
    If you are gluten intolerant or have allergies to grains - this one is the one to eat at. Lots of safe choices AND zebra domes - you can ask for the gluten free version and they are awesome, nice slab of chocolate at the bottom instead of cake.

  2. I am going to ask for those zebra domes. I don't like the others very much and when everyone is raving over them I feel a little sad. Now I have a reason to love them!
