One of the most adorable stars of Tokyo Disney Sea is this cute little tiger named Chandu.
He plays Sinbad’s sidekick in Sinbad’s Storybook Voyage, which I fell in love with upon taking my first ride through.
Chandu is so popular in fact that he has his own park merchandise and a snack called a Chandu Tail that is made fresh daily in his honor. The Chandu Tail is served at a small counter service spot called Sultan’s Oasis in the Arabian Coast area of Tokyo Disney Sea. It’s packaged to look like the “tail” is coming from Chandu’s body.
The description of this item is “Chicken Cream Bun.” Which really, upon hearing, I wasn’t super on board with eating it. I’m so glad that I went for it though. It’s delicious, and in true Japanese fashion, it’s also super cute!
The bun itself is very similar in
texture to a bao type steamed bun. It’s shaped like a tiger tail (or a backwards question mark if you will) and has stripes to match. The bun is stuffed with something I’d describe as a mixture of thick chicken corn chowder & chicken pot pie filling. It’s very flavorful and I really liked the unique texture combination of the bun and filling.
If you are in Tokyo Disney Sea, I’d say that this is a must try snack! It’s so unique and unlike anything we have here in the states.
I really love how the Tokyo Disney Resort goes above and beyond with themeing. The packaging is just too cute. I almost saved it, but decided it was best just to purchase the keychain version of this snack instead! Look at it, plastic packaging and all…
Just for fun, I wanted to include a few photos of Sinbad’s Storybook Voyage. It’s really a great attraction and the building it resides in is gorgeous.
Similar in style to It’s a Small World, guests board a boat and are taken along on Sinbad’s voyage of adventures. The music is great and the scenery is spectacular.
I had never even heard of this attraction until seeing it in person. So in love with its adorableness.
Would you or have you ever tried a Chandu Tiger Tail? I say, if you have the chance, go for it! And while you’re there, take a few spins on Sinbad’s Storybook Adventure. I promise, you won’t regret it.
