It’s lunchtime and you are aboard the Carnival Sunshine. It’s Day 2 of your cruise and you have been living it up quite nicely. While everyone is busy shoving their plates full of Blue Iguana Cantina Food and gobbing the goods on the Guy’s Burger Joint Burgers, head to the back of the Lido Marketplace.
One of the least talked about secrets on Carnival is about to be exposed. I can’t believe that more people don’t banter about this awesome find. This is one find that will make you a cruising pro if you are on the Carnival ship and have this available. I don’t know if I am more excited that I discovered it or to share it?
Get your hands on food, they will find much later. Just as I had a great secret that I divulged to you about another secret spot on the ship and lunchtime dining, this time I have an Asian-Inspired secret for you, are you ready to lavishly live food out loud on your Carnival Sunshine Cruise?
The Carnival Dining Secret Exposed
I love when I find a tip that will help you discover a whole other dining experience. This is probably one of the best kept secrets while you are on the ship, but luckily I had someone give me the insider’s tip, so I want to pay it forward, lol!
Get here ahead of the lunch crowd, because I will be honest. it is very busy, and it takes a bit of time to get through as you are managing what you are putting in your bowl and each dish is hand-prepared, take a look.
This is the back of the line baby! That is where I was, but sometimes the line is longer, so hold tight, grab your bowl and don’t move! This lunch is well worth the 10 minutes you will spend from this point forward! It’s time to enjoy the Mongolian Wok.
Once you pick your Noodles, and the veggies you want on them(there is a mini buffet right before you meet up with your personal chef) you then visit this station. You never leave the line you are in, it is just first pick noodles, then toppings, and then if you want meat. You hand your bowl over to him and he steams it, or Woks it up! This poor chef cooked so many bowls, I am sure he is sick of looking at this food, lol!
I can’t remember all the choices, but I think it was Salmon, Pork and Beef. You can see them in the photo above.
My food was cooking in that wok, … oh only moments away from my great creation– I can hardly wait. This is when it happened, the lady in front of me just got out of line–? Who knows why, and she left her food, she was so close to the finish line….. I stayed and this is what my lunch looked like.. imagine what the taste was like. It was very vegetarian.
And this is the final creation that I dined on from Ji JI Asian Kitchen. Sno Peas, and green beans and onions and peas. YUM.
Get here early as you can, right when it is opening to avoid the lines. Don’t get out of line, it is a short wait, but it is just that you are hungry, so it seems longer. The food is divine and it is your chance to sample food again from a delicious restaurant on board the Carnival Sunshine that charges a nominal fee at dinner, but lunch is no charge!
Lavishly live Ji Ji Asian Restaurant out loud while sailing with Carnival Sunshine. Don’t forget to make your reservations for a great dinner one night, as they often sell out quick. Dinner is a nominal fee of only $15 per adult and $5 per child, insanely inexpensive for exceptional cuisine! Here’s to luxury dining on the high seas with Carnival and to exposing the Carnival Sunshine Mongolian Wok Secret.
