Located inside Adventureland, Bengal Barbecue has a variety of Polynesian-themed items on the menu, including the Chieftain Chicken Skewers (as these are named), Banyan Beef Skewers, and the BBQ Pork Belly Skewers, which were a relatively new option before the COVID shutdowns. Everything is served with a delicious pineapple Polynesian BBQ sauce. The Safari Skewers (bacon-wrapped asparagus) are also delicious.
