Pandora: The World of Avatar is a world like no other.  Surrounded by luminescent flowers, trees, rocks and water, this land is filled with a richness and beauty that is hard to imagine without exploring it for yourself.

Satuli Canteen Pandora

Deep in the Valley of Mo’ara, you will find a Quonset-hut structure called the Satu’li Canteen.  Long ago it was once used as an RDA mess hall, but now Alpha Centauri Expeditions (ACE) has turned it into a peaceful dinning facility to comfort travelers.

Inside you will find an abundance of Na’vi culture and Art, along with a community dinning experience.  The menu provides a comforting international style cuisine taken directly from the bounty of Pandora.

I recently had the pleasure of sharing a meal at the Sat’li Canteen during a recent expedition and ACE was kind enough to allow me to document my experience for scientific research.  Ordering food was an easy and quick process, the locals were extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the food and culture.

Satuli Canteen Pandora Food is prepared on an open fire which fills the entire area with a tantalizing aroma of grilled deliciousness.  Menus are clearly stated and easy to understand.

After speaking with the locals, it was recommended that I partake in a meal consisting of a Pandora delicacy called a “Pod”.  A very soft dough is stuffed with root vegetables and spicy curry seasoning.  It is served with a refreshing slaw and vegetable chips.  What made the dish unique, were the refreshing “Bursting Boba”.  Imagine a water droplet exploding inside your mouth with a sweet and tart flavor.

The Curry Pods were delicious.  It had just the right amount of spice and flavor to keep the dish interesting with each bite.  The chips were very crunchy with a sweet barbecue taste.  The slaw had a bitter and sweet taste, but the highlight was definitely the Bursting Boba!

I would have been satisfied with the meal and moved on, but something else was drawing me back in.  Something that I have never seen before.  A dessert that was calling out to me, almost like the how the Na’vi communicate with each other.  It was then that I ordered the Blueberry Cream Cheese Mousse with Passion Fruit Curd.

This dessert was not only beautiful, but also represented the story of Pandora. The blue coating with white specs represents the Alpha Centauri Star System.  The white meringue on top is the moon “Pandora”.  The yellow lemon is the planet Polyphemus, which the moon of Pandora orbits.  It’s a wonderful story that I was happy to hear about.

The dessert was almost too lovely to eat, but I knew I had to try it in the name of science.  The first bite was like an awakening.  So many exotic flavors coming together to create a sinful experience inside my mouth.  The creamy texture was soft and smooth and the meringue on top gave the bite a solid contrast.  Never before have I experienced such a beautiful dish with so much flavor.  This is certainly a dish that I will pass along to others to try in the future.  Indulge yourself, it”s worth it.

My overall experience was peaceful and welcoming.  The food is worth the travel in any expedition.  I will be returning to the Satu’li Canteen for more future research.  I hope that you will find your own conclusions on your next journey.
