A Sampling of the Amazing Food from Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin

In 1959, 12 countries signed the Antarctic Treaty, which preserved the continent of Antarctica for peaceful purposes only. Since 1959, the number of countries that have signed the treaty has grown to 50. With so many countries a part of this beautiful continent, the cuisine that can be found there is quite diverse. This diversity inspired the menu for Expedition Café, our new, marketplace style restaurant in Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin. Here is a sneak peek at some of the delicious food that you will find on your expedition:

The American station features: Southern fried or savory baked chicken and your choice of mashed potatoes and gravy, baked macaroni and cheese, french fries, corn on the cob, and biscuits.

The Asian station includes popular Asian cuisine such as: pepper steak, orange chicken, gluten free teriyaki chicken, shrimp lo mein, rice and, of course, a fortune cookie that feature customized fortunes at Antarctica!

The Italian station is filled with hearty pasta dishes, such as: spaghetti and meatballs, italian sausage sandwich platter and garden lasagna.

And for our junior explorers, each station features a customizable Shamu kids meal for just $5.99!

Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin – opening this Friday! – will transport you into a rarely seen, icy world. You’ll feel the majestic grandeur of the South Pole and see it through the eyes of a hero penguin named Puck on an exhilarating, first-of-its-kind family ride. You’ll explore a massive penguin colony in an expanse that envelops you in cool extremes, both above and below the penguins’ icy world. It’s a must-see, one-of-a-kind theme park experience only at SeaWorld in Orlando, officially opening on May 24.
