Trader Sam’s at the Disneyland Hotel is an immensely popular little hotspot of the Disneyland Resort thanks to a relaxed tropical atmosphere and creative tiki concoctions. While many flock to the watering hole for a fruity umbrella drink, the food served here is also destination-worthy. One of our favorite munchables to pick up at Trader Sams’s are the tantalizing Fried Chinese Long Beans served with a perfectly paired sriracha mayo.
