NEW Felucian Garden Spread Switches Kefta for Falafel at Walt Disney World

One of the staple vegan dishes at Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge in Walt Disney World (and Disneyland) has been the Felucian Kefta Garden Spread – but that staple has now changed from kefta to falafel! Keep reading to find out all the details on this major menu shake up along with a review of this newly updated item.

What’s Vegan at Disney’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge? - Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo

When Galaxy’s Edge opened in Walt Disney World at the Black Spire Outpost of Batuu, Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo brought us some unique and instantly beloved options. The Felucian Garden Spread changed in name a few times over the years, and the size and number of the Impossible kefta meatballs has changed as well, but it became a go-to item when visiting Batuu. Unlike the Rontoless Wrap, only available in Batuu West (Disneyland), the Felucian Kefta Garden Spread was available in both parks. Composed of Impossible kefta-seasoned meatballs, hummus, cucumber and tomato salad and pita triangles, it became a favorite from vegans and meat-eaters alike. I used to love having non-vegans try it and fall in love with the dish. Despite this well-loved and well-ordered option, Disney recently switched things up and replaced the Impossible kefta with fried falafel. Some components stayed the same, while the rest was also switched up. Let’s break it down.

The pita triangles and cucumber and tomato salad remain the same in the same serving dish for the Felucian Falafel Hummus Spread. What’s new and different is the hummus, which is now a beet hummus, along with the falafel, which is topped with a purple toum sauce (an extra garlicky Lebanese aioli).

I will say that I appreciate changing up the hummus, since falafel is made from chickpeas, as is regular hummus, so (much like the Falls Family Falafel at Skipper Canteen), when you have falafel on a bed of hummus, it’s kind of chickpea overload (though I do love that dish at Skipper Canteen). However, the beet hummus when I tried it was a little odd on the texture side. It seemed a little loose and not as smooth as a typical hummus. It could be because it’s new, or just an imperfect batch, so I’m willing to try it again. It does give a fun base color to the dish.

The toum sauce being purple really brings home the “this is Star Wars food” feeling, and it tastes great too. It felt like the perfect amount to ensure the falafel wasn’t too dry. The falafel itself was fried to perfection, and had a nice smokey flavor to it, perhaps some smoked paprika added? Not sure of the spices but it had a nice unique flavor to it. Overall, this dish is probably about a 3.5 out of 5. I will try it again and may update that score if the hummus improves. But it’s really hard to replace the amazing flavors, texture and overall amazingness of the original Impossible kefta. I know a lot of vegans don’t enjoy or want to eat plant-based meats, so I appreciate this option, but wish it was an ‘either or’ situation and not a replacement overall. Or at the very least give us the rontoless wrap! Here’s my short video of when I tried the vegan Felucian Falafel Garden Spread:
